End of Season Awards

OK, so the fall season is still somewhat fresh in everybody's mind, but enough time has passed (hopefully) for the wounds to have healed. Let's look at the season objectively and try to determine who is worthy of post-season awards.

Feel free to put your nominations for any level, with compelling reasons. You can also make your own awards. This should hopefully give us something to talk about before tri-level and the Cotton Bowl.

MVP (Singles and Doubles)--This person(s) should have been the one(s) who had the most impact on his team's success this season. Without this player or team, the overall team could not have done nearly as well.

Rookie of the Year (Singles and Doubles)--This person immediately made an impact in the first season of playing Dallas league tennis.

Most Improved (Player or Team)--This award goes to the player or team who surprised everybody by completely turning around his/their results from spring to fall.

Captain of the Year--This captain was able to achieve the most success, motivate his players, maneuver lineups, and/or win the respect of his peers in the process.

Biggest Sandbagger--This player had no business playing the level he did, but he did so anyway and dominated lesser players all season.

Most Overrated--This player was expected to make a big positive impact for his team this season but actually ended up contributing very little.

Upset of the Year (Individual or Overall)--This matchup appeared to be all but decided before the players stepped on the court but it ended up shocking everybody.

All-Star Team--This would be the ideal lineup for any captain to put out there to be able to succeed at the next level.

Remember only players who were on a roster this fall are eligible for these awards.

Have fun with this and let the debate begin!!!

134 comments:

  1. These are my 4.5 awards.

    MVP--Has to be Dustin Viktorin in singles. 8-0 all season with three big singles wins in the playoffs, clinching the championship for Oak Creek. Doubles goes to Fair/Young. Yes I'm biased but they were 3-0 in the playoffs and 4-0 during the season.

    Rookie--Dustin Viktorin again for above reasons. Hans Oberg in doubles. Although his team didn't make playoffs, he dominated regular season at 7-0.

    Most Improved--The Lakes. 15 more individual wins this season (7 from Oberg). They are well on their way to becoming a playoff team.

    Captain of the Year--Seems like a no-brainer because winning is everything but I'm picking Todd Feldman for a different reason. He had only 12 players on his roster and was able to win the fall. This shows the incredible loyalty his players have for him and that earns my respect.

    Biggest Sandbagger--Although he went MIA in the playoffs, Dmitry Kaforin gets my award. He should not have been playing 4.5 to begin with so many would say ROCC got what they deserved in the end.

    Most Overrated--Nick Smith. A lot of hoopla (mostly from me) after he signed but he ended up never stepping on the court and thus making no impact on the fall season.

    Upset of the Year--Bovermann over Branch. Ended up knocking the mighty Branch team out of the playoffs with this upset that never should have happened. Honorable mention goes to Durten and Wright losing against High Point's 8.5 doubles team in the last match of the regular season.

    All-Star Team--Viktorin and Molina in singles. Fair and Young. Rauschuber and Smithson who were also undefeated. Blake Mason despite his absence from the playoffs with a 5-0 record and Jeremy Stone. Only loss came to Fair and Young and he was promptly moved up to 5-0. Plus, how can I leave a Branch player off of this list?

    I look forward to reading other lists at all levels.

  2. Now this is a great thread. I sure it will get derailed with some type of player bashing - but this is good stuff

  3. Thanks, but of course you're right.

  4. 4.0 Awards

    MVP and Rookie-Outside of my own team, I like Jonathan Renwick. 5-0 in Fall League Play without dropping a set and 3-0 in the Playoffs, with a nice straight set win over Patrick T of Somabut's Team.

    ReplyDelete
  5. 2008 4.0 All Star Team

    2d - Paul Wildberger/Mark Sweeney
    3d - Dan Rasor/Greg Odell

  6. Sisk gets Captain of the Year because he went to Nats. Flora gets sandbagger of the year becaues he got DQd after beating all of his sectional opponents by embarassing scores.

    ReplyDelete
  7. I think Gene Davis deserves an honorable mention for sandbagger of the year. I know he was computer rated but he did not belong at 4.0.

    ReplyDelete
  8. Most overrated 4.0--Mitchell Mcgowan

    ReplyDelete
  9. Fall season awards

    ReplyDelete
  10. I'm a 4.5 so I'm gonna stick to what I know. and i'm doing mine on all year, the fall doesn't include everyone.

    Captain: Branch - can you really argue with his success

    MVP: Phat Bui - guy could play and win at both singles and doubles

    Sandbagger: Corey: I keep thinking he'll come over his backhand

    Most overrated: Corey: I keep thinking he'll come over his backhand

    All Star Team:
    Singles
    Henry Gonzales
    Jeremy Stone

    Doubles
    Williams/Slezak
    Fair/Young
    Bui/Smithson

    That lineup goes to Nationals

    ReplyDelete
  11. I don't see that singles lineup going to Nationals. BTW, how can I be the biggest sandbagger and overrated? I assume they are both a joke but it could at least make sense. I think Bui would beat either of those in singles.

    ReplyDelete
  12. BIGGEST OUT-OF-TOWN ASSHOLE: Mike Getz

    MOST OBNXIOUS: SNOTjock Delira

    MOST INCOMPETENT: Jane Gilpin

  13. Icepick for the hottest and MVP.

    ReplyDelete
  14. 4.0 Awards:

    Captain: Bob Somabut for doing what no one thought would be possible (if you read the blog). Honorable Mention: Robert Weatherby from Lakes for getting within a match of the finals while sticking with his everyone plays philosophy vs. the normal win at all costs strategy.

    ReplyDelete
  15. Most Overrated Player – Jonathan Marcus.

    The guy is so full of hot air. Lot’s of talk with no walk.

    ReplyDelete
  16. BEST SPORTSMANSHIP: Jonathan Marcus. He's a good guy.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Well, ummm, so I think rookie of the year should go to Corey Noel for posting a solid thread.

    ReplyDelete
  18. The I Love Me Some Me award goes to Nancy Noel.

    ReplyDelete
  19. The "MOST ANON POSTS AWARD" should go to Eddie HIll and the other LT EEFER'S.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Shouldn't that be the Eddie Hill award for me? You can't accuse him of being a showboat and posting anonymously; that doesn't add up.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Most improved:
    HP/Bazan: Lucky thunder, although focused on 3.5 for a few years started at 4.0 last fall and had a bad season and tried hard in the spring and underachieved and made a couple of changes and went from 2-5 to a few games from coming up with an upset of Bob's team in the Fall final and takeout Team Eddie in the midst of that.

    Most overrated ringer: Mitch Mcgowan. Agreed, now he is back at 4.0 and I don't think anyone would argue he is back where he belongs he is too out of shape to play and compete at 4.5 and at 4.0 sectionals for that matter or even the dcc come July.

    Springpark will miss the DCC again.

    Jim sucks!!!!!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  22. BIGGEST MOUTH AWARD GOES TO... Jonathan Marcus.

    PANTS HIKED UP UNDER MAN TITTIES AWARD GOES TO (DRUM ROLL PLEASE)... Jonathan Marcus

    When your over SIX FOOT TALL your pants shouldn't be hiked TO YOUR NIPPLES IN AN ATTEMPT TO SHOW OFF YOUR MOOSE NUCKLE!!

    ReplyDelete
  23. The Dennis Greene award - 4.0Lifetimer and captain Eddie Hill.

    “Lifetime are who we thought they were, Lifetime are who we thought they were…We talked all season how we will dominate the spring and fall and got our ass handed to us in the DCC, Lifetime are who we thought they were, Lifetime are who we thought they were. That’s why we took the damn field. Now if you want to crown em, then crown their (expletive deleted). But they are who we thought they were…”

    ReplyDelete
  27. No Don Harvey or Cline on the 3.5 all stars?

    ReplyDelete
  28. Someone can't read and continues to put the 3.5 SPRING sandbaggers on the FALL list.

    ReplyDelete
  29. FALL 3.5

    MVP - Don Harvey (Westlake) - It is nice to have a guranteed win each week

    Upset of the year - Brookhaven beating Westlake 4-1

    All Stars - Singles Harvey (Westlake) & Cline (Bhaven)

    Cline was undefeated and Harvey's only loss was to Cline

    Doubles - Jerry Palacioz (Greenhill) and a partner (Terry Newmanm, Ed Tarangiloi or Jack Stephens) - All 4 were undefeated in doubles (with multiple partners)

    To many other good doubles players to narrow the field down. Westlake, Brookhaven, Stonebridge, Oak Creek, Sammual Grand all had some very good doubles players.

    I don't know if any other doubles players were undefeated.

    My apologies for any teams that I missed.

    BK - GH

  30. Is the Cotton Bowl tourney played indoors? Does it usually have a good turnout?

    ReplyDelete
  31. Dolson would have taken out Cline
    -Jessica

    ReplyDelete
  32. The Cotton Bowl is Dallas' biggest tournament. No other NTRP tournament in Dallas is worth more than 100 points, while this one is worth 200 points. It's like a mini-major zone.

    The majority of it is played indoors. Last year it was played at Canyon Creek and Brookhaven (4.0s).

    ReplyDelete
  33. Then Cline would have taken out Jessica. Then again, I think he would pass on that.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Yeah, how about a thread on the Cotton Bowl.

    ReplyDelete
  35. RIF-Reading is Fundamental. Corey already told you in the intro that he is waiting until after the deadline on the 14th before doing a Cotton Bowl thread.

    ReplyDelete
  36. PMS - Pre Menstrual Syndrome.
    Chill
    Nobody reads the intro except you.

    ReplyDelete
  37. MOST IMPROVED: Jonathan Marcus-His strokes look good, court coverage much better. Congratulations.

    ReplyDelete
  38. No, everybody reads the intro except you.

    ReplyDelete
  39. BIGGEST CHOKE / DOUG SMITH at SECTIONALS
    Doug played horrible nervious tennis against Sanangelo losing to a weak team/ Ice Pick played strong but Doug really bent over for Sanangelo -> especially in the match tiebreak/ probably cost our team a trip to Nats/ Candyass Doug didnt win a match all weekend

    ReplyDelete
  40. Not Dougs fault he just gets intimidated by anyone with hair on their chest.

    Que:Why was Doug in the line-up when Keith Robinson, Doug Voss, Steve Brouer were sitting out?Dougs no better than 3.5 the others guys can really play WTF?

    ReplyDelete
  41. WHAT.. DID JONATHAN MARCUS LOOSE HIS MAN TITTIES, BECASUE HIS STROKE ONLY HAD ONE AVERAGE SHOT OFF HIS FORHAND SIDE. AND YOU HAD TO BE ALL THE WAY OFF THE COURT IN ORDER FOR IT TO WORK. BUT I GUESS IF YOUR TITS GOT OUT OF THE WAY OF YOUR ARM YOU SHOULD BE ABLE TO HIT A LITTLE BETTER. BECASUE LAST TIME I SAW HIM ON THE COURT HE LOOKED GIRLY AND LIKE HE NEEDED A BRA.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Hello???? - Fall!!!! Get over it!!!

    Worse than yesterday's news.

    ReplyDelete
  43. actually, I might have to agree in that JONATHAN MARCUS gets a strong vote by me for most improved as well.

    His game has really come around.

    P.S.
    I do wish my wife's titties were as big as Jonathan's though.

    ReplyDelete
  44. What was the team prize for fall winners this year? A paper clip?

    ReplyDelete
  45. ROOKIE OF THE YEAR....Jonathan Marcus. Bumped up to 4.0 and pushed his team into the playoffs. With a little more experience, I look for him to put LTF over the top @ DCC.

    ReplyDelete
  46. The award for Least Helpful Person in Tennis is that lady that works behinf the counter at High Point.

    ReplyDelete
  47. Which one? There are a few. Charloette is nice, but one of them is a huge BITCH. I can't stand her. Would you please describe her? Is it the one that wears way too much makeup, is about 50 or 60, sometimes wears short sleeve shirts, and is extremely abrasive? Because that's the one i'm talking about.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Bitch/Abrasive is the one (don't know her name-I AVOID HER. Very good description. Charloette is most helpful.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Do you know if she smokes?

    ReplyDelete
  50. I agree about the bitch at Highpoint that is always on the rag!

    ReplyDelete
  51. There are at least two that smoke. One looks like she has done hard time in prison for white collar crimes and that is not the bitchy gal.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Biggest Cry Baby of the Year – Forrest Feuille

    ReplyDelete
  53. The bitchy girl is a little heavier and has short hair, and wears too much makeup, and makes weird eye contact, and has a serious attitude if you get within a two foot proximity of her and attempt to ask her about anything.

    ReplyDelete
  54. Yes, I agree Charloette is a sweetie pie. The youngest girl (that I have seen) is ok too but very easy to look at though!!!

    ReplyDelete
  55. Can't say I've ever got (or wanted too get) within 2' of that lady. But I could feel that attitude when I rounded the corner by the rackets on the wall. She exudes vibs of-Oh, here comes another one, crap I have to work some more now get out of my hair.

    ReplyDelete
  56. The heavy set girl with short hair is a BITCH and leaves much to be desired!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  57. the young lady's name is chandra and she is HOT

    ReplyDelete
  58. The way to a womans heart is by misspelling her name. You crack me up dude.

    ReplyDelete
  59. Wow there are a lot of people on here tonight. Guess noone is getting any.

    ReplyDelete
  60. I've aready gotten mine and I asked the little woman if she was through. All she did was rolled over and went to sleep. Geez, I am so good.

    ReplyDelete
  61. No the one I'm talking about sometimes wears long sleeves.

    ReplyDelete
  62. That was a bit duh'ish

    ReplyDelete
  63. Here is one that can be agreed upon. "The Biggest Hooker Award" (excluding Jessica) has to be, hands down, T.Q.

    ReplyDelete
  64. "The bitchy girl is a little heavier"? Hell she looks like a #10 can that is ready to open up some whoop ass on anybody within 10 feet of her!!!!! Rape Victim? You decide.

  65. I played doubles against some guy named Tu=n Q*ach in a tournament (I think it was in Carrollton) not long ago and I wonder if that is the same f**cker that hooked the sh%t out of us? Crucial points and/or to go up big in a game, didn't matter, our shots were OUT! I mean the little ba##ard would call it out about the time we hit the ball. I hope he feels good about himself.

    ReplyDelete
  66. I know who you are talking about about and it is ashame. Other than that he seems to be a nice guy but who would want to hang out with someone like that? Tuan appears to have the weapons to win without hooking so whats the deal? I see he played on Cary's team. Maybe that's where he learned the value of points. Cary?

    ReplyDelete
  67. Who's better Rusty Branch or Sponge Bob Somabut?

    Who has the most trips to Sectionals and Nats? Captains have to be measured by the success of their teams over a number of years.

    ReplyDelete
  68. I played TQ at High Point. The little prick does cheat worse than anyone else I know.

    ReplyDelete
  69. No offense to TQ or any other orientals,
    But, those are what I call Jap plays.

    ReplyDelete
  70. I admit playing TQ can be a challenge. But let's leave race and ethnicity out of it. Low blows like that are just not necessary.

    ReplyDelete
  71. orientals are rugs, Asians are people

    ReplyDelete
  72. Perhaps, but Russians are also Asians and thus they must be differentiated. Maybe we can call them Oriental Asians, would that make you happier?

    ReplyDelete
  73. TQ came like that, I didn't create him. He is a good guy actually though. He left my team I didn't send him packing and I could still use him. He brings beer and doesn't drink, that is my definition of a great teammate.

    ReplyDelete
  74. yep there are a couple of P/T Hi Pt young girls that are way HOT. Good hire Mr. Sumrow.

    Forrest is a tad cry babyish. After he lost the deciding match v. Cary's team he was throwing his racket, etc.

    ReplyDelete
  75. He missed a volley on match point and threw it into the net. THat is the first time I have ever seen him even remotely throw his racket. He is a good sport and is not a cry baby.

    ReplyDelete
  76. All – Forrest is a B I G cry baby. Over the last year, Forrest didn’t drop too many matches because he was sandbagging at the 4.0 level. Now the matches he did drop, he was all emotionally worked up like a teenage girl and weeping.

    ReplyDelete
  77. It will be very interesting to see if Forrest changes his attitude over the next year while he plays at the 4.5 level. Forrest is so emotional; he may not be able to take it. I would expect to see Forrest’s rating to drop back down to the 4.0 level over the next year.

    ReplyDelete
  78. First he is sandbagging and then he is found out, then back to sandbagging again?? Which one is it? You don't have a ridiculous record like his and not make it at the next level. He will do great at the 4.5 level and will probably make the top 8 in 4.5 like he did at 4.0. How is he so emotional? You sound like a woman!!! He is a great guy and good at tennis.

    ReplyDelete
  79. Agreed. Forrest is a nice guy and is not emotional. I don't even know where to start on that comment. You sound like you have bigger problems with him than just losing a match to him. Quit your crying!!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. I concur; Forrest is a nice guy and a sandbagger! He’s also a cry baby!

    ReplyDelete
  81. No way forrest finishes top 8 in 4.5. Assuming he plays about 4-5 major zones, he'll be lucky to finish top 20. Will probably finish between 30-45.

    ReplyDelete
  82. If Forrest finishes next year with in the top 50 at the 4.5 level, it just goes to show that he was a sandbagger for the last two years at the 4.0 level.

    ReplyDelete
  83. If you play 4-5 major zones and you know how to hold a racquet, you'll finish in the top 20. Honestly, if you play that many major zones and can't finish top 10, you should probably quit wasting the gas money.

    ReplyDelete
  84. It’s not the easiest thing to do! If it was, a lot more of you would be doing it.

    ReplyDelete
  85. I agree with the 5:46 poster. Very few 4.5 players play more than two or three majors so if somebody wins one round in five majors, they will easily be top 20.

    ReplyDelete
  86. pussy alert.....Adam Dentin
    not sure what he did....just wanted to call him out and see if he is out there

    ReplyDelete
  87. Sooo, is anyone counting to see who won the most awards?

    ReplyDelete
  88. 4.0 Awards
    Best captain: Bob Somabut
    Most Improved: Bin Nguyen
    Most Overrated: Everything LTF and also the great Steve Kent
    MVP's: Jean Nguyen and Jared Kemp
    Upset of the Year: OC over HP/Som
    Comeback player: Chad Carlquist
    MVP Rookie: Steve Kemp
    All Star Team: Look at the roster....HP/Somabut.

    ReplyDelete
  89. Give me a break!

    CAPTAIN OF THE YEAR: JIM WALTERS
    Beat HP/Somabut in City and took his team to the finals of Sectionals barely losing 2-3. Plus earlier poster was right _ Bob DID make some very screwy line-up choices that hurt his team.

    MVP: Gene Davis who went undefeated including 6-0 at Sectionals. And a great guy!

    ReplyDelete
  90. Santa Clause:

    Please give many of the idiots on this board a book on reading comprehension.
    This thread was about the FALL SEASON that just ended, so who cares what a team or individual did in the Spring or at Sectionals.

    Thank you now move along.

    ReplyDelete
  91. Captain of the Year --> MARK FERRELL
    Mark is a fantastic guy and took his 3.5 team to the Sectionals finals barely losing to those shits from Garland.

    ReplyDelete
  92. nutin but steers and queers in Arkansas

    ReplyDelete
  93. SHITHEAD OF THE YEAR: Johan Mudsam
    The LTF 3.5 team was depending on him and Mudsam left everyone high and dry at Sectionals. LTF Guys worked hard all year only to be screwed at Sectionals by one of their own. For many LTF players this was the one chance in their lifetime to make Nationals. Mudsam is a total asshole.

    ReplyDelete
  94. I thought higher education in Arkansas meant you attended jr. high.

    ReplyDelete
  95. If I recall correctly, Mudsam chose to go out of town to his kid's soccer tourney which was schedule way before the play-offs. He played Friday and then left for his trip. I think his priorities were correct.

    ReplyDelete
  96. Mudsam made the right decision! Plus, it saved the Lifetime team money and time form traveling to Tuscon and getting beat by a team from Puerto Rico on a mission. Garland played the right cards at the right time..it could have gone either way. Look out though the Garland team has scores of players on the 4.0 radar who are improving mainly in doubles..in singles they have lines 1 and 2 ready to win 90% of the matches..I give them the most improved award for fall they may not have made the playoffs but look at the win loss ratio..pretty strong for the first year in 4.0

    ReplyDelete
  97. I'm just thankful Mudshame doesn't prioritize for our servicemen and women. We would all be let down.

    ReplyDelete
  98. Mudshame had time to get back from the soccer game but didnnt try. He made a selfness "I dont give a shit" decision.

    ReplyDelete
  99. I KNOW that is not a lifetimer sayin that sheat. Mudsam dint even know what USTA tennis league was until 2 weeks and 2 days before the end of the season. LTF got lucky to have him play. Isn't this supposed to be FALL!!!

    ReplyDelete
  100. Ferrell did do a great job putting together a strong team. He recruits like hell off of 5 courts at LTF!!! I mean, wow, slim pickings to put together a team.

    ReplyDelete
  101. Guys - Come on ..... Mark Ferrell is a pussy!

    ReplyDelete
  102. Yes, Mudshame joined our team late and got in a couple matches - how nice for him. Then he let our whole team down at Sectionals. A real shity thing to do.

    ReplyDelete
  103. who gives a dam about the fall league anyway? only the spring matters

    ReplyDelete
  104. Eddie, be quiet. You used to think it was important. That was until you went 1-2 in the playoffs.

    ReplyDelete
  105. I really like pink purses. Especially ones that are made of suede with a silk liner. It's just so special when you get to stroke one under your right arm.

    Oh...what was the topic on this thread again?

    ReplyDelete
  106. Mudsam made the right decision! Kids over tennis any day! Even if he played,would he have Glen this time? Who knows? We didn't split sets vs. Puerto Rico maybe ltf could have,who knows! I know we had a talented,and deep team.I will build in the future to win!
    sisk

    ReplyDelete
  107. Mudshame is a selfish prick who didnt give a shit about his team. It never was a choice about kids vs tennis.

    ReplyDelete
  108. I am appalled and dismayed that someone would skip out on teammates.

    ReplyDelete
  109. This has been a very sore subject around the club. Most of us feel Mudsam should have just declined to play at all due to his predetermined travel schedule. We feel that he was selfish for joining the team and knocking other teammates out of the roster. The general concensus is that if we didn't make the playoffs than that's fine at least we would not have depended on someone who would leave us high and dry. But Morrison kept pushing to get him on the team. Just my opinion, take it for what it's worth.

    ReplyDelete
  110. I don't like the practice of adding ringer at the end of the season just for the play-off,
    It does not give the system a chance to work,

    He played the last two matches of the season the straight to the play-offs.

    You should have to play more than 2 matches to make the playoffs,

    Lifetime has bad karma and got what they deserve.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Back your ponies up, cowboy. Mudshame is no ringer. At best, he is a mid level 3.5'er. He will be bumped back down to 3.5 at mid season if he is not at a soccer game. How gay!!!

    ReplyDelete
  112. This is a ringer:

  113. Not sure what that link is, but this surely is a ringer:

    ReplyDelete
  114. If Ferrell asked me to play on his team I would, without hesitation, tell him to go to hell.

    ReplyDelete
  115. interesting. I have to respect your opinion, cause it is ur opinion, and I can see your thought process behind it.

    BUT, we got a lot more matches in cause Mudsam was on the team, and it proly wouldn't have happened without him.

    We didn't have a 1 & 2 singles that could play every match. In fact, we had a singles that could only play every other match.

    It was a shame that Bennett got hurt just before end of season, cause he was hitting a TREMENDOUS ball before he got hurt.

    He came back and was playing good, but not amazing Bennett good, like he was for awhile. Cause of that, we lost a sure thing line at doubles every time.

    So, long story short. Mudsam was awesome for the team in my opinion. We would have been retired a month prior to that otherwise.

    ReplyDelete

    I respect your opinion to. And certainly Mudsam was out best player. But we did lose the Sectional finals to Garland by a single tiebreak playing without Mudsam and with Bennett less than 100%. So we had a darn good team anyway. Point is that most guys would have come back from the soccer game in time to help their team in the Sectional finals. How many of us will ever get that close again?

  117. Look Brain, I wanted to play and was available. Against my wishes, I sat out so he could play. I really doubt ANYONE could say I do not want to win. The bottom line is I missed out on getting some experience for next year while another team member loads his ass up and goes to a soccer game. But I doubt he really cares because he got moved up and our team is MUCH weaker due to both events. You and him have trashed out our team!

  119. I would rather have teammates that play with heart than people who play with skills. At least I'm not at the mercy of THIER CHILDREN you dumb fuck. Maybe YOU got to play a few more matches; however, I did not!!! Maybe that will help YOU in 4.0. I HOPE NOT and when you get moved down again, I will not vote to let you on the team. You're a fuck face.

I do not who that was earlier in the year referring to him as "The Big Fish" but I can tell you that is him to a "T". I wish Bmo could see the real Brian!!! It might make him a better person.

  125. Sounds like one or more cry babies on LTF. Without Mudsam you would have never made it out of the playoffs, let alone the city championships. Maybe you should look on the bright side, you went to Sectionals. A lot of teams would like to have been in your shoes. Mudsam made the right decision, his kids are more important. Merry Christmas

  127. Against my better judgement, I will respond to this ONE time.

    Its like this, in MY opinion. We were lucky to get Mudsam when we got him. Total luck. I don't think Mudsam even understood the opportunity that we had in front of us, cause he had not played USTA tennis for years. Even that, AS MUCH AS I WANTED TO WIN THE WHOLE THING, I absolutely can NOT criticize the guy. I think he made the right decision. And I DID want to go to nationals BAD! I am not sure IF we will ever have a chance to go again.

    Then to say you could have played if he wasnt there. Well guess what... He wasn't there. We were juggling lines all the way to the last day. We brought all sorts of team members back from the dead ALL season long. I don't think you can complain about that. So that is not a reason why you did not play. Vip, back from the dead; Mahr, back from the dead; J Marcus, back from the dead. In fact we got stronger during the playoffs because we had so many members that we had written off that came back and played, and played WELL.

    Vip caught the flu the last day and we had J Marcus step right in, IN DOUBLES, and he played VERY WELL. (it's true, and he played well in singles too during the playoffs too).

    Whitt gone during some rounds of playoffs. Tuorto could only play 1 match a day

    I am not sure if I even get your complaint? AND I am NOT going to apologize for wanting to win either. Due to my job situation, I was able to play tennis EVERY SINGLE DAY, and my game had peaked. Sorry. If that makes me an azz, so be it.

    You say that you would have played had Mudsam not played, but we had Mudsam, Vip, and Marcus all step in at the last minute. If you wanted to play more, maybe you should have shown up and practiced more and proven yourself. As I said previously, it is not like people were written off and never allowed to come back. I don't even see how you can point a finger at me, but I definitely see 4 fingers pointing back at you. At 3.5 and 4.0, this is not really about God given talent. This level is about just getting out and playing more. and having heart too.

  128. One last, One last thing. I never brought this up, but USTA called me and DQ'd me 2 weeks before GTC went to Nationals, letting me know I could not play anymore 3.5 tourney or league play.

  129. You might want to question the USTA about GTC influences. I know I would if it were me.

  130. lol. No, they had already won and on there way to Nationals. They even told me it was because of my 4.0 play during the fall after finals.
