Many thanks atl.  I suppose it is the last couple of years I have been following his articles because he has been a fair commentator seemingly whereas some of the Mail/Express writers have been frequently caustic. I don't see how any of them can be too disparaging these days, he just doesn't deserve it.

JWT is now back in the top 8.

Raonic has withdrawn/retired from 3 of his last 7 tournaments, hasn't won a title in over a year and is still somehow in the top 4.
Quite amazing that, but I'm very pleased for Tsonga.

I know you did - it shows how ignorant you are about both Scottish politics and academia. Of course the most knowlegeable people on such topics often speak out or campaign on them. Its only to be expected and welcomed. I've said before on here that one of the top authors on Scottish politics is Professor James Mitchell, who is both an SNP member and has spoke at their conferences. It doesn't remotely detract from the quality of his work. People like him and Whatley are respected on all sides because of the quality of their analysis, not the badges they put on.
Well, in my country stuff like that is frowned at.... But as the quotation shows many people think like that in Scotland too.

You didn't address the point i made. That alien smell is in the air.

A guy said that he considers only one of them real Scot.  Whatley stinks and it looks like the majority of the SNP are against him. Are they ignorant about Scottish politics too?

No, you couldn't. Now please stop trying to attract my attention.
I stopped talking about you ages ago, i'm here with my faithful follower althusser and the tentative boogers and you pop out of nothing and YOU try to attract MY attention lol :P Go fetch me Exotic1 instead, i want to chitchat with someone sexy..... She owes me a private dance, and some lectures about her culture. For now all i know from her is "Samjhe", and that's not much.

atl: do you know off the top of your head when Milos has major points to defend?  Grass obviously.
Like you so fed up about WTA being so difficult to watch. Those end of season matches were so good.

Thanks atl.
Shingles is horrible and it takes ages to recover from it, so have no expectations of Andy. Thank goodness he has no points to defend here, and few until RG.

What don't you like about her?
I clearly meant it for cases like Whatley's activism.

It's mildly amusing watching the muppet-in-chief try to spin his way out of trouble regarding Whatley. Especially given that Alex Salmond went out of his way to defend him. Alex Salmond! Nationalist hero!

And I find your sneering "hilarious".  Maybe not so much anti-Scottish as pro-sneering.

wb, cool you're not ignoring my posts after all.

I wasn't in trouble at all. I claimed from the start whatley is a mug for supporting a stupid cause. And the people i quoted confirm that.

Also one person in there said from those academics he considers only 1 person a real scot, he mentioned an unnamed one as foreigner and stuff. That confirms my suspicion that Whatley has a shady background (whatley could have made things clear but, strangely, nothing about his family/religious background as i said like anywhere i searched).

And btw I'm with SNP in all they said. I don't care about whatley's or the softcore scots' opinion. A country with godly natural resources like Scotland will do just fine on its own....

Thank you atl for your usual excellent report. In another thread you mentioned Simon Briggs, the Telegraph reporter whom I have always thought to be one of the better ones, why have you reason not to like his articles ? Just interested because I value your opinion.

Thanks Jan, bit of a basic intro this time. Long time since I saw Jaziri play a match.

Re Simon Briggs, he isn't the only tennis writer I dislike, and there tend to be several reasons for that. One is that I just don't like his writing style/tone, another is that he was one of three British journalists who wrote some particularly cruel articles during Andy's comeback from surgery in 2014, and by extension those same three were at the forefront of 'bashing' Amelie as much as they possibly could. November 2014 was the lowest point that Briggs sank in print, there were a cluster of particuarly nasty articles then.
