  1. It was probably good for LTF to lose their last match aga Huffines. Because now LTF will get to play 4 matches aga top teams under tourn conditions. I think that will make them tourn tough and better prepared for the DCC. Also LTF has by far the best team in the QT so there is little real risk for LTF.

  2. LTF is as good as any team in the city. GTC is still not tested. They played ina weak flight and I am not sure they are not here if they switched places with LTF. Huffhines and LTF are tested.

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yes It"s always good to LOSE so you lose the confidence you had.What idiot that posted that. Having to play extra matches in these hot conditions is not good for anyone. If Lifetime wins they will deserve to be in the City Playoffs but it"s not an easy road to get there.All these other teams would like nothing better than to beat an overrated team. Good Luck to all the teams playing this week-end!!!!

  4. QT is great practice and provides experience that will help whatever team wins. Getting used to playing in the heat is also a plus.

    ReplyDelete
  5. Yes - every team currently in DCC wishes they could be in QT for experience sake.

  6. Nice job to Yuan Chen to night,
    He upped his game in the second set got more constant and hit like 5 sceaming passing shots right on the side lines.

    Unfortunately, went to the lob on match point instead of another passing shot and hit it long.

  7. Is there a computer at LBH to enter results in TennisLink?

  8. THEY CAN'T AFFORD SHADE,
    HOW DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO HAVE A COMPUTER.

  9. LBH is a disgrace. It is an abomination and a sin against God and man.

  10. i dont no what the hell u r talking about. mosquitos the size of small cars, courts rammed close together, poor viewing, the sound of gun shots from the gunrange, the smell of sewage, inadequate parking, lb houston has it all.

  11. Who were the D-Bags playing singles and yelling for a line judge acting like a bunch of little kids? The with no sleeves made me laugh.

    ReplyDelete
  12. Marc, great job for toughing it out in the end. Yes, the lob at 8-9 probably wasn't the best choice of shots, but I blame it on the nerves. Good match.

  13. Great tennis tonight!! Congrats to Lifetime and Highpoint. Marc and Alan were clutch, great stuff men.

    Highpoint, never count them out, tough team and well deserved win, great job Pat.

    I enjoyed talking to everybody and watching both levels. Wish everybody well the rest of the way!!Except next week!! lol

    ReplyDelete
  14. Marc,

    You played really well tonight. You handed the soft ball and the strong ball equally well. Best I had seen you play. Your game is developing nicely.

    ReplyDelete
  15. I can honestly say that Gerber had a right to be pussrd and yelling, and I honestly hate the guy with his big ego and all, but that Fretz guy was hooking him point after point. It was very obvious and I may have not yelled myself, but he had every right to, the fretz guy looked to be making some very poor calls. Oh and Gerber was the one with no sleaves although I guess most probably guessed that!

    ReplyDelete
  16. Gerber has a big ego and is an ass. But the other guy was making horrible calls (kinda like Getz) so u no what I mean.

    ReplyDelete
  17. Saw Gerber play last night. You gotta be kidding me. His lobbing and patting the ball made him look like an average 3.0 player at best. His temper tantrums were also a disgrace to tennis. He was lucky to win his match breaker. LTF is going to have to do better than that if they expect to do anything at DCC. Not sure they'll even make it that far.

    ReplyDelete
  18. big ego gerber has some mental challenges to deal with. but lifetime is still a strong team.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Can anyone give an HONEST evaluation of Gerber (by that I mean a non LTF opinion)? I was under the impression this guy was supposed to be good, but I keep hearing more and more lately that he is nothing more than a glorified 3.0 player. I thought LTF was supposed to destroy Fretz in singles and it sounds like both matches were close and LTF dodged a bullet. What gives? I'd love to here an objective opinion. I'm a little tired of hearing LTF's take on the tennis world.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Tuff matches vs HP,
    Our lines matched up just the right way to give us the sweep,

    This leaves LT as the only undefeated team,

    If we can take care of business this afternoon pencil us in for the DCC.

    ReplyDelete
  21. Gerber is a damn good player, no out of level ringer, but top-o-the-line 3.5 for certain. He got tennis elbow pretty badly a couple months back and it set him back. He is coming back into his own. Yesterdays match was a fluke, never looses his cool like that, and 95% of the time hits the ball with good pace. He took out the HP guy easily this morning 1 & 2 playing more like himself again. Definately plays better against pace it seems. Looks like he played doubles against Westlake and won easily against Bert and partner.

    ReplyDelete
  22. anon 8:54am
    i don't play for lifetime and my opinion of gerber is that he is a solid 3.5 player. he does struggle with shots at times. when he is not hitting cleanly, he will dink the ball and use his athleticism to grind the point out. this can be effective, but he will need to clean up his technique if he wants thrive against higher level 3.5 or legitimate 4.0 players. as for him being a horse's ass, that part is unfortunately true.

    ReplyDelete
  23. it's funny how some people become topics of this blog. so what?

    ReplyDelete
  24. Gerber looks more like a body builder than a tennis player. He is a very solid 3.5 player because he plays smart and has decent strokes. His first serve is very hard and flat. His forehand can be good but he mostly will push the ball back and use his speed to stay in the point. He has no backhand and is very fast for such a big guy. Not tall but strong. I don't think he has been playing tennis very long but he is a good competitor.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Tough match today vs Westlake,
    Both me and Eddie Johnson did not play well in the 107 degree heat, and gradually got got worst the longer it went,
    Luck for me i got worst at a slower pace,
    We scratched it out for 2 hr and 15 minute and I was luck to come out on top.

    Finish line is in sight.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Well looks like LifeTime has the QT all wrapped up. Way to go boys. See you guys next week-end.

    ReplyDelete
  27. LifeTime did not do as good as I thought. Tie breakers determined more matches than I thought. Perhaps LifeTime is not as strong as we thought. One really good doubles team and the rest of okay players. Klamaki and Gerber are okay but they can be beat.

    ReplyDelete
  28. There is no way LifeTime can beat Garland in the playoffs. They don't have the singles players to pull it off. The old open players will kick their butts no doubt.

    ReplyDelete
  29. These are all solid teams in the qt and have all earned our respect. Two of these teams went 7-1 in the season and sure the matches have been close with 3rd set tie breaks that we have won, but we have also only dropped 3 lines in the qt, all in 3rd set tie breaks. Our team has played well overall and are 3-0 against very good teams. Next week will be an even bigger challenge with some great teams, but we will be up for the challenge.
    LTF

    ReplyDelete
  30. What's funny is that all you anons keep talking about Klamecki and Gerber and how they are not all that and can be beat. The way I see it, these two are hella competitors and are undefeated in the playoffs finding a way to win, period. Perhaps these other teams are better then they got credit for and still LTF found a way to win it. Perhaps they can not beat Garland, but at least they'll have their shot while all you other anons watch from the sidelines. Get your popcorn ready!

    ReplyDelete
  31. OK - for us all I can say is you better watch out next year. By the way- when are the early seaon ratings suppose to be published?

    ReplyDelete
  32. LTF came thru the QT in flying colors. They'll be stronger at the DCC having played 4 tough QT matches. They are tested and they are ready to rumble. Watch out Garland and Huffines!

    Congratulations to LTF. I wish our match against y'all would have turned out more favorable, but you definitely deserve to be in DCC. Good luck on y'alls next matches.

  34. Kaiser's ringers made a statement. I think they get to sectionals and probably win DCC.

    ReplyDelete
  35. DeCordova, thanks for the comments. You and a few on your team are stand up guys, but you guys need to do something about your captain. That Albrecht is a little pom pom rah rah bitch and is unbelievably annoying. I'm surprised he wasn't wearing a skirt to go along with his thong, or whatever it was stuck up his ass. Somebody should teach him tennis etiquette or stuff a sock in his mouth.

    ReplyDelete
  36. Please send the USTA officials to tennis etiquette school,
    Opening gates and walking onto court in the middle of points,
    Screaming at players from 3 courts away,
    Enforcing 90 second change overs in 108 degree weather,

    They need to be where they need to be when they are needed by players,
    Other than that they need to stay the fuck out of the way.

    and yes Fretz need to calm down,
    I know this your first time in the play offs but chill the fuck out.
    Ass Clowns.

    ReplyDelete
  37. Congrats to Lifetime. They were the favorites and delivered the goods.

    Honorable mention to Fretz for finishing second at 3-1 and almost pulling the upset over Lifetime. Big surprise and maybe a team to keep an eye on.

    Biggest disappointment has to be Westlake finishing at 1-3. Makes me think their flight may have been the weakest and that Garland might be not be quite as good as originally thought. Still, Garland has to be the favorite at DCC.

    ReplyDelete
  38. Next Week-end We"ll find out just how good Lifetime is when they play the Big Boys. Brookhaven-They won"t win a match and should not even be in.They should have gotten to play in the QT but so much for DTA and their stupid rules!!! But congrats to Lifetime for Winning the QT.

    ReplyDelete
  39. sounds like fretz struck a nerve against lifetime. good. if those posers struggle against fretz, they won't have a single team win at dcc. dta should sell tickets. i know i'd pay money to see lifetime crash and burn.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Fall winner should be given entry to the QT not the DCC. Can we get a poll on that???

    ReplyDelete
  41. LTF has a very strong team and has a good chance to win the DCC. Sure we all hate those obnoxious bastards, but they do have a strong team.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Lifetime will go 2-3 at dcc.

  47. The QT LIfeTime picture says "undefeated". GET UR FACTS STRAIGHT. We beat those clowns in the regular season. i no u mean undefeated at the QT -> but that is NOT undefeated. Look it up in the freaking dictionary.

    ReplyDelete
  48. IT IS A LOT OF FUN WHEN THE BEST TEAMS PLAY EACH OTHER.

    ReplyDelete
  49. Hey 7:07 am, are you that retarded? The thread is about the QT as well as the picture, and the record of 4-0 would mean that LTF went UNDEFEATED in the QT. The thread is not talking about the regular season you moron.

    ReplyDelete
  50. So you beat lifetime in the regular season, wooooo hooooo. What happens after they beat you at cities second time around, you gonna stick to your "we beat them during the regular season" routine. What a bunch of misfit rejects that Huffines team is.

    ReplyDelete
  51. LifeTime won the QT (losers bracket) without losing a match. BUT THEY ARE NOT UNDEFEATED.

    THERE ARE ONLY TWO UNDEFEATED 3.5 TEAMS IN DALLAS: GARLAND AND HUFFINES.

    LifeTime wants to brag about being an undefeated team but they seem to forget about our guys kicking their asses.

    Marc, u need to be more objective. Dont make claims that arent true. That just an insult to the REAL undefeated teams.

    ReplyDelete
  52. Huffines really kicked Lifetimes asses alright, a whopping 3-2. Sounds like an ass kicking to me. The problem is the you trailer trash can't read or understand things. LTF went undefeated in the QT, that is all anyone has stated. Man I can't wait to play Huffines again. Bunch of cheating ass faggots.

  53. MARC YOU ARE A PRICK. THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF NASTY, RUDE AND INSULTING COMMENTS MADE ON THIS BLOG EVERY DAY. WHY IS ONE MILD COMMENT ABOUT WEINSTEIN REMOVED? YOU AND WEINSTEIN GETTING IT ON?

    ReplyDelete
  54. IT DOES NOT SAY "UNDEFEATED AT THE QT" IT ONLY SAYS "UNDEFEATED"

    DONT TRY TO CLAIM SOMETHING THAT IS NOT TRUE.

    ReplyDelete
  55. wow, my previous post asking about the weinstein comment and his reply was removed. what gives? as far as hateful things go, that was pretty tame for this site. as i said in my deleted post, anything that makes lifetime look bad gets removed. come on.

    ReplyDelete
  56. Why do you insist on posting in capitals, you angry? Just cause Weinstein was chosen to play over your sorry ass doesn't mean you have to bash the guy. Perhaps you need to stay of the blog and get to working on your game, or just move down to 3.0 where you belong you inconsistant idiot.

  57. Fine I'll update it,

    Good job living up to the name "Huff-Wines"

    ReplyDelete
  58. why are all the posts about weinstein being removed?

  59. really, weinstein did absolutely nothing to help our team this year. he knows it and so does everyone else.

    ReplyDelete
  60. Scatter shooting about the QT, ltf did go without losing a match but wow there were some really close ones that could have gone the other way... If I were them I would still be a little worried about singles (not based on records in qt but based on how they played in qt).

    That friday night boozer/gerber match was not only an embaresment to 3.5 tennis (both lived up to there pushing reputation) but the cheating and whining was equal on both sides from what I saw and heard from others who were there...both of those d bags need a timeout!!!

    Fretz was a lot better than people thought! Pretty decent singles players but the Boozer guy is not only a poor sport, but seems to call lines like Getz and TQ (you all know what I mean)!

    Westlake was very solid and those old dudes can really play! They stuck it out in the heat as good if not better than anyone, props to them!!!

    High Point was very dissapointing, not enough talent across the board...

    Lakes... what can I say, how can you come from a tennis only facility and not have more than 2 or 3 good tennis players? I dont get it, there is only one 3.5 team there right? What gives?

    Next week should be very interesting!

  61. Did I miss something? What's all this about Weinstein?

    ReplyDelete
  62. I wonder if any of these anons are even on LTF or Huffines? Unless someone on LTF has a huge ego, I say people are trying to stir up shit, again. Talk shit about Garland, they will be the ones everyone hates come Sunday.

  64. Klamecki loves Weinstein!

    ReplyDelete
  65. A win is a win,
    In the play-off they all come down to a 3rd set tiebreak,

    It would be great to win every match in straight sets,
    But that is not going to happen for anyone,

    If you think Garland in not going to win matches 3-2,
    or have them go down to a 3rd set tiebreakers you don't know the play-off very well,
    They're all tough matches now,

    All you need is 4 good players in the right spots to manufacture a win,
    And every team has at least 4 good players.

    LTF managed to conserve energy, rest players and make it through the weekend with out a team loss or any injuries.

    That's good enough for me,

    Give me winning ugly over losing pretty.

    ReplyDelete
  66. Every Team in Cities has a chance to Win it except for Brookhaven.Not much being said about Garland and all their self-rates. All the talk here seems to be on Huffhines and Lifetime because of their history of close 3-2 matches in which Huffhines/Oak Ridge won 3.Probably another 3-2 coming up on Saturday.I don"t think any of these negative comments are coming from their players but other teams idiots that are wishing they were on 1 of those teams.Both teams respect each other I think.The playoffs should be very exciting with good match-ups ahead.Good Luck to all the teams. It"s going to be HOT!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  67. Garland will win every match 4 - 1

    ReplyDelete
  68. who's going to have the one loss for Garland?

  69. To Lifetime Great playing over the week-end in Winning the QT.As for you Anons assholes that continue to call my team names July,13 7:34 and 7:45 You can stick all your Nasty comments up your ASS. Have the courage to post your name or confront us in person. I"m still trying to figure out why we are hated so much??? I guess it"s because we just keep winning!!!We are looking forward to these upcoming playoffs to finally see who the best 2 teams are!!!! Try to find some better names for me the ones you keep using are getting OLD.

    ReplyDelete
  70. LT BL is right. Anyone who think Garland is some unbeatable beast is crazy. They may win but they are beatable. I ahve seen almost all of their players and there is nothing to fear. I think they could very easily finish third or fourth.

    ReplyDelete
  71. Garland is not that great they could easily finish 3rd. Lots of overrated players.

    ReplyDelete
  72. Who are the most overrated players left. This only applies to teams still playing. Who is stillplaying that will probably be moved up this week and at the end of the year get moved back down?

    ReplyDelete
  73. Garland is beatable, maybe on a line of doubles. So 4 - 1 every match it is.

    ReplyDelete
  74. Garland is beatable and I expect to beat them. Even if you don't think so, my team will show up and play anyway.

    ReplyDelete
  75. What's with all the earlier fuss about Weinstein and posts being removed? It's hard to imagine any subject being too taboo for this blog. By removing the posts, you're just making it worse.

  76. anon 9:49

    There was a post last night questioning the legitmacy of Weinstein being in the Lifetime photo. He responded and this morning the posts were deleted. It obviously had to be a lifetime player. I mean who else would know or even care about who this guy is? It was honestly pretty tame stuff, but since it reflected poorly on Lifetime and showed what a bunch of poor sports the team as a whole is, Marc deleted the posts. Real objective. Any other team on team hate posts would still be here. I hope you read this quickly as I'm sure this will be gone soon enough.

    ReplyDelete
  77. If a post was made, deleted and then no record of the post being deleted really sucks! I hope this isn't true.

    ReplyDelete
  78. Why does anyone have a problem with deleting vicious attack posts? I wish the personal attack posts were all deleted. Does anyone really act the same in real life liek they do on this blog?

    ReplyDelete
  79. I do agree that Brookhaven should get a ticket into the QT versus DCC but they did earn it. In the Fall Playoff they beat some of these same teams like Westlake. The 4 best teams did make the DCC (Huffines, LTF, Garland, and GH)which is good to see and there should be some good tennis next weekend. Good luck to all the teams!!

    ReplyDelete
  80. The troubling thing about that post being deleted wasn't that it was a vicious attack, but that it reflected poorly on Lifetime. It was obviously a catty comment by a Lifetimer about one of their own players. If a similar situation happened about a Garland or Huffhines player, the posts would still be here. Why is this even called Dallas League Tennis? It needs to be renamed Lifetime League Tennis. At least then you'd be honest, Marc.

    ReplyDelete
  81. Marc also said he would not play 3.5 tennis. Obviously, he is not a honest man of his word.

  82. -Stumpy, stop coming on here tempting people, we can come up with other names for you if you'd really like, but you have to admit that Bitter Beer Face is damn good, and it will never get old.

    -Friday on line 2 singles Huffines vs. LTF match will feature Lipsie vs. Weinstein, playing for a golden beanie.

    -Are Eddie Johnson and John Sisk long lost brothers?

  83. Instead of you Huffines white trashers complaining so much, why don't you come up with your own damn blog, then you can delete whatever the hell you want. You can call it "Tornado Park Tennis Leagues".

  84. Marc, the previous post was a personal attack. Will you please remove it? Oops, no LTFers are attacked, so I guess the post will remain.

    ReplyDelete
  85. That was not a personal attack, it was an attack against the whole team.

    ReplyDelete
  86. The personal attacks are from the 11:15am post. It doesn't get any more personal than that. That's a 1000 times worse than the posts last night that were deleted.

  103. Greenhill seems to be the team nobody is talking about. Any opinions?

    I agree that Brookhaven should not be in the DCC, but should have to qualify in QT.

    ReplyDelete
  104. Greenhill beat Fretz 4-1 (and OC 5-0) and didn't drop more than 5 games in any of those 4 lines. LTF scraped pass Fretz 3-2 with all their top players and 4 of the lines went to match tiebreaks. If they choose to, their best doubles line can beat Arcaria/Bennett. GH hadn't shown their true depth until the last two weeks of the regular season.

  105. GTC loses 0-5 every match, book that.

    Weinstein is one of the nicest guy's I've met, all this deragotory language by this spineless anaon is BS. Marc did the right thing in removing this filth. If you don't have testerone to post your name,stay off.

  107. If greenhill has a team that can beat us, than I look forward to playing them. I know palacioz is a very good player and I am sure they have other great players. I always like our chances and hopefully the lines match up so we can play their best line. It will be a fun competitive weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  108. John,

    Any chance you'd want to make a wager on your predictions? I don't disagree with your statement that personal attacks should be removed, but I do find it interesting that Marc picks and chooses what stays and goes. Look at all the hurtful, racial crap that was posted today and it's still here. I read those posts last night and I actually do not recall any foul language. It was obviously a post by an LTF player about another LTF player and it clearly reflected the culture of poor sportmanship that permeates from that cesspool. He'll leave all the other shit in, but take that out. I take issue with that. Good luck this weekend and please, please expose Lifetime to be the gutless cowards they are.

    ReplyDelete
  109. There is not a bigger group of bitches than the Huffines team, complaining about the term undefeated being used my Marc for the QT! I hope LTF kicks your as in the QT. What whiners!

    ReplyDelete
  110. How gutless are you, talking big and not posting your name. Why do you put all this garbage on LTF, you don't think any of the other teams are chiming in. Get off your high horse you dickless wonder and savior of all mankind.

    ReplyDelete
  111. Tell me how one jealous player calling out another player on his team is poor sportsmanship by the entire team? It is lame that one player had to come to that but it has zero reflection on the rest of the team. Your an idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  112. Dalas Tennis Players,

    A Huffines player did not post those negative comments regarding the Life Time team. We met the Life Time players and we liked each other and respected each other. The players that were there know that the match could have gone either way. Huffines just happen to pull it out.

    We have respect for all players because we love to play tennis like all the other teams.

    Those comments were likely made by people who want to start up shit between teams. Get a life.

    Best regards,

    That would be my guess, as a member of the lifetime team I cant think of anyone who would say that about Andrew.

    But either way, who really cares its a freaking blog! Get over it already!

    ReplyDelete
  115. I read the Weinstein post and it was very, very mild. Not a personal attack just made the point that Andrew had not contributed any wins to the team's success. No nasty names, no obscene comments, etc. I wish more of you saw it because it was really lame. It obviously came from a LifeTimer who was not happy.

    Weinstein's reply was mild also. There are MANY posts FAR more inflammatory than this one. But Marc K. singled this comment out and deleted it because it reflected poorly on LTF. No other reason.

    The problem with your logic is that what other team would know who Andrew Weinstein is and give a damn that he was in your team photo? The other posters are correct, it had to be from Lifetime. The whole thing has been played to death and needs to rest, but the point is valid that if that hurtful post was removed, why not remove all personal attack type posts?

    ReplyDelete
  117. If we removed all personal attacks, there would be as few posts as before the anons were allowed.

    ReplyDelete
  118. I normally do not respond to Anonymous posts,
    But since there is such uproar I will make a statement,

    Post number 1 said Weinstein sucks and should not be in the picture
    Post number 2 was Weinstein explaining why he sucks and why it ok that he sucks
    Post number 3 as somebody else blaming Kenny? for making the first post.

    I was going to let the first 2 posts stay up there, but when the third post came up I deleted all three because i did not want the board to get bogged down in that shit for two days,
    I guess I was wrong and did more harm that good,

    I was not trying to protect anyone's feelings, because he already responded.

    On a related note...

  119. Hey Marc,
    It is a thankless job! I know everyone loves it or else they would not spend so much time on the blog. Nice work and it does not go unnoticed. Thanks

    ReplyDelete
  120. Hey Marc,

    Thanks for running the 3.5 blog. You have done a great job and it is entertaining to say the least. Every now and again you also get some good tennis input. Unfortunately I can not help you as I plan on playing 4.0 next season and beyond, hoping to get bumped up tomorrow. BTW, any luck getting the list early this year?

    Have one of the 3.5 lifers take it over. Maybe Sisk would be a good candidate, cause even if he ended up a 4.5 someday, you know he'd still be playing 3.5 along with all his other out of level guys. Or maybe Grandpa, he'll never make it out of 3.5. Good luck finding a replacement.

  123. My vote for next year would be either Big Ego Gerber or Palacoiz, they seem to be on here more than anyone else!

    Let those two windbags have a go at running the 3.5 blog and it might shut there pie holes up a little bit!

    ReplyDelete
  124. Marc, My vote goes to Getz!

    ReplyDelete
  125. Hey Pie Hole, Gerber and Palacioz will both be 4.0s tomorrow so doubt they would be interested.

    Maybe you and your lifer 3.5 ping pong strokes can do it since you seem to be on here often as well.

    ReplyDelete
  126. Marc,

    I think most will agree you've done a great job and that you should continue. I also think we can all agree not allowing anon posts would be the death of this or any other blog. With that said, is there any way to have a "report abuse" flag after each blog post? This way the moderator can review the flags on a timely manner and determine if something is truly over the line. If there is an inane, abusive personal attack that has no tennis relevance, why not delete it? I have to think there are only a few true abusers out there and this could be a way to weed them out. Just my two cents worth.

    ReplyDelete
  127. no question marc does an outs job with the blog. but also true that the posts on weinstein were extremely mild. it was just inconsistent to delete those very mild comments when so many other posts are far, far more abusive, inflamatory, etc. plus the guy had a decent point that weinstein hadnt contributed much to the teams success.

    ReplyDelete
  128. Anon 7:38,

    You don't know what you are talking about. This is my second post on this topic. Probably have about 15-20 total on all topics combined.

    ReplyDelete
  129. My motives were not altruistic,
    My team does not need that type of negative energy heading into the City play-offs,

    As per the 3.5 blog, I headed into this season with an eye on returning to 3.5 for a play-off run,
    I wanted it to be with OC, but that did not work out.
    I shopped myself around, found my best fit with LT, and I think I have put then over the top, I think most of them would agree.

    However, after smashing all of you weak 3.5ers I expect to make a mid-season return to 4.0, So I will not be in the week to week 3.5 loop and will not be able to do a very good job at 3.5,
    So there is a job opening, be advised the pay sucks and it is very thank-less.

    maybe If Cary gets bumped down to 3.5 me and him can just switch places, I may have to appeal him against his will.

    ReplyDelete
  130. Why are we calling him Big Ego Gerber when all you must do is read that last post by LT BL

    ReplyDelete
  131. In reading Marc's 6:55 post, it sounds like Kenneth Linton (Kenny?) was the culprit of what shall be known as the "Weinstein Conspiracy". It's hard to imagine someone being upset about not getting enough playing time with Kaiser. That is one dysfunctional team.

    ReplyDelete
  132. Since my name has come up (thanks Marc), I feel a need to clarify. I've only made two posts ever:

    The first was in defense of a 30 year friend, Captain Bill Kaiser aka BigBird.

    The second was the "intenet porn" reference yesterday. And yes, beating off and cumshots have been prevalent on this blog.

    I never saw the Andrew W. posts. I was informed of them from an email. Andrew, I had no idea you even played this last weekend until yesterday, which is admirable given the injury you're recovering from.

    I hope you can rest assured that myself nor any other LTF team member would make such childish comments. You've been around for a while, and pleny of people know you. This was some loser trying to stir up shit, and it worked.

    Whoever did post the comments is the shot his mother should've swallowed!

  133. Who cares about Weinstein, why are all you clowns making such a big deal of it. There is not one team out there that doesn't have a disgruntled player on the roster at one time or another. If you are competitive and on the team, you want to play, period. The problem is that some people think they are better than they are and always have an excuse for losing. LTF may be a disfunctional team, but they are playing next weekend which is more than the other so called functional teams can say. In fact, look at all the teams playing this coming weekend, I would say all of them (except for maybe low lying Greenhill, and we shouldn't count Brookhaven cause they stink) have issues, so perhaps that's what it takes....

    ReplyDelete
  134. Kenny, don't get upset with Marc, he is not the one that posted your name, that was somebody else. If anything, Marc deleted it and only recapped it today after all the bs. Let it go, who cares.

    ReplyDelete
  135. Wow why is Brookhaven taking such a beating? They have some very strong players but they are probably happy to be under the radar.... We shall see this weekend.

    ReplyDelete
  136. I never said Andrew sucks. But I do agree that Andrew has not done anything this year to help the team.

    - Kenny

    ReplyDelete
  137. Kenny, if you have anything to say about your own team, why don't you do it with your own team and not on the blog. Who cares what you think anyway, your record looks like crap, but let me guess, wasn't your fault.

  138. Don't tell me you really thinkg BH has a chance?

    Garland 2:1

    Any takers? House makes 15% juice.

  143. Linton must lead a miserable life if BigTURD Kaiser is his best friend. Imagine that . . .

  144. Those odds seem about right. The only thing BH can hope for is not to finish in last.

    ReplyDelete
  145. Are you kidding Marc, I click the appeal button everyday, so hopefully John or Ed will pay me $100 to play. I am broke.

    ReplyDelete
  146. Get bumped down to 3.0 and you might get a car from Bender.

    ReplyDelete
  147. I am not sure who is doing all the reckless posting about LTF team mates but I assure you it was not Kenny. If it is someone from my team, I take the full blame as that should not be happening. If Kenny's record looks like shit it is because he played with me and I suck.

    For the person who made the comments, you know who you are and you should feel like a real ass regardless if you play with us or not.

    Enough of this he said she said crap. If you want to blog, blog about the weekend matches. If your 8 year old mentality gets off on hiding as an anon and making fun of people,throw the puches at me. I have a lot of thick skin and big yellow feathers to deflect it.

  150. Marc is right. I think he did put us over the top, well at least thus far as we are in DCC. The guy went 4-0 in the QT when it mattered and we will see what happens this weekend.

  151. I wonder why Cary thinks they would actually offer him money. :)

  154. If LTF didn't have Marc, they'd be sitting at home this weekend. They wouldn't have gotten past Fretz at the QT. It took Marc a close match breaker to beat Fretz's S1. I don't think Gerber would have beat that guy and Lifetime would have lost 2-3. I hope you got a signing bonus Marc.

    ReplyDelete
  155. To Mr. 6:38pm July 13th, I like how you call someone out for talking big and not posting their name then you dont post yours... your pathetic!

  156. Aren't you doing the same thing you idiot.

    ReplyDelete
  157. Keep talking about Gerber, you guys in love with him or what. 4-0at QT. You know what they say, scoreboard talks and bullshit walks.

    ReplyDelete
  158. Who cares what anons think, it is meaningless.

    Played the worst tennis (or push ball) possible on Friday and still came out on top.

    I'll take Chen down, guaranteed.

    Marc has played every single match for us and has come thru. The man is a true competitor and anyone that says we could have done it without him is a complete idiot.

    Looking forward to the weekend, win or lose, will be some good fun. Some great teams in it with good guys all the way around.

    Gerber

    ReplyDelete
  159. Gerber,

    It must be nice living in your fantasy world. Klamecki and Chen are LEGITIMATE 4.0 players. Look at their records and how close their match was. You are an above average 3.5 player that resorts to push ball when you can hit your shots, which seems to be a lot lately. If Marc wasn't there at S1 Friday, you'd be pumping iron and taking roids instead of playing tennis this weekend. Too bad you won't be playing Chen next season, he'll be 4.0 and you'll be playing push ball with the 3.5s.

    ReplyDelete
  160. Brookhaven should not even be in the DCC. They are not one of the top 5 level 3.5 teams in Dallas. They'll go 0-4 this weekend.

    The fall winner should be given a spot in the QT not the DCC.

    Marc, any way we could get a poll on sending fall winner to QT instead of DCC. Probably an interesting debate.

    ReplyDelete
  161. Hey 6:43 pmer, you are a real tough guy and have no idea what you are talking about. Again, anon trash talk is meaningless and nutless. So unless you post your name, go blow yourself.

  168. If I would of had Marc for Nationals we would have won it all. He is the best 3.5 in history. Had he got his victory vs Puerto Rico, everybody else would have fed off that and we win 5-0. Jerry or Harvey can't touch him. He is the real deal, good luck in Tucson Marc- I still have 100.00 for your travel!!!!

    ReplyDelete
  175. Oh the drama. This blog is worse than a fading reality series. Created tension to keep interest. Boring. Let's talk tennis. Here are my predictions:

    Garland 4-0: Best depth head to toe. Not the powerhouse some think, but good enough to take it all.

    Greenhill 3-1: Best doubles depth and a great captain keep them in the thick of things and make them the surprise runners up. Lack of a knock out singles player prevents them from taking the gold.

    LTF and Huffhines 2-2: Mirror images. Stellar players, no doubt, but a lack of total depth and too many egos keep them in the middle.

    Brookehaven 0-4: Let's face it, they shouldn't even be here. Will win some random matches, but can't put together 3 against the other stronger teams.

    ReplyDelete
  176. Correction on previous post. LTF and Huffhines. One will finish 2-2and one will finish 1-3. Flip a coin.

    Those predictions are for entertainment purposes only.

    ReplyDelete
  177. I think it is possible for all teams to finish with a loss. GTC is not near as strong as some of the rabble says. LTF appearts to have some internal strife right now. Huffhines and GH are sitting quietly. These are probably the teams to watch. BH probably is the weakest.
