I'd like to ask why I was banned for 3 days. I expressed an opinion. I didn't fight with anyone or break any rules so why was I banned?

Is it a banning offense to suggest that Murray is below par for number one. There are lots of people who hold that opinion. Is this how you treat new members here?

What an absolute disgrace. A's a longtime lurker I thought I'd take the plunge but now my reservations have been confirmed.

Hi nadal nation, rather than whining like a child just get on with it like a mature adult. If you are really interested in tennis your comments will show this. If you are just interested in winding people up with unnecessary childish remarks about a player - your comments will show this too. Respect your fellow posters, respect the community and respect the forum. It is not rocket science.

Why chose this thread to air your grievance anyway.. the issue was raised on another thread either finish it there, with the mods, or not at all

Hi nadal nation, rather than whining like a child just get on with it like a mature adult.   If you are really interested in tennis your comments will show this.  If you are just interested in winding people up with unnecessary childish remarks about a player - your comments will show this too.  Respect your fellow posters, respect the community and respect the forum. It is not rocket science.

Who the hell are you to call me a whining child. If you have nothing constructive to add just stay out of it. No one asked for your opinoon. I was banned after 3 posts! I voiced a commonly held opinion and was banned for it. That deserves to be known; that moderators can treat new members with such disdain, hence my reasons for airing it public. You should learn to respect the requisite for freedom of expression on a public forum.

I think Murray is a good tennis player but certainly far inferior in that regard to Nadal, Djokovic and Federer ergo I think he was very fortunate to reach number one at a time when those three were absent or playing very poorly.

There. That's an opinion. A tennis opinion. Do I deserve to be banned for it? I wonder who the real immature whiners are.

At 10 posts if I remember you can message people privately. That's where you want to take your grievances. It's pointless, but that's what to do

Freedom of speech arguments pertain to human rights and political expression not tennis

This isn't a publicly owned forum. It's paid for by the owners, they can decide how it is and is not ok to act at their own discretion. They own it after all

To be honest Nadalnation, I preferred you when you were just lurking.  

Look you weren't banned - you are still posting - so it was a suspension.   Using this forum is a privilege not a right.

I have repeatedly requested that you take your complaint/grievance/moaning/whinging/or whatever your problem is.. elsewhere or better still to the mods if you don't I will .. I thought by introducing this thread we could have some light hearted banter ..desperately needed at times on this forum me thinks. So have some respect please

When I tried to log on it said 'you have been banned from this forum' which is why I called it a ban.

Bertie, for a person who himself has only been a member for a very short time you really are overly forthright in establishing the rules.

Haddie, so it's OK for them to critique but I'm not allowed to respond. Don't worry i won't bother you again. I'm quite frankly astonished that a new member can be treated in such a manner. Banned after 3 posts for voicing a common opinion and then ganged up on. If this is the kind of place this is then I won't bother to post anymore.

I can also see why you don't get any new members.

Maybe it's best you ply your trade elsewhere in that case

If you are a supporter of Rafael Nadal then things are looking great.  There is already a troll called Jermaine who comes here just to sledge Andy Murray.  Everybody knows Andy Murray isn't as good as Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal - it's no secret to those that follow tennis.  In fact no-one is as good as Roger Federer or Rafael Nadal - apart from Djokovic 2011-mid-2016.  But Andy Murray is Britain's top male player by far in the modern era and has been more or less the best of the rest apart from a late resurgence of Stan Wawrinka.

Clearly not since I joined hoping to discuss tennis but have received nothing but abuse in return.

Thank you for the welcome. I'm sure this place will continue to thrive when you have such a 'pleasant' and welcoming bunch.

Hate to interrupt the thread again, but Nadalnation, I hope you can access the PM I sent you the other day.
I have no knowledge of your ban and am certain the tennis mods did not do it - there's only me and laverfan and we didn't do it. There is no record of it in the Mod section so I don't know why or when it happened. It may just have been someone's administrative error.

I just wanted to state that publicly for clarity - but please discuss via PM with me if you wish.
Any further off-topic posts will be removed and hopefully a good thread can be continued with some more video links.
Sorry H-N.

I agree with H-N. If you really need to air this publically at least go to the mods first. And then at least start a specific thread rather than gatecrash someone else's.

Back to the original topic, I have to admit I find some of Roger Federer's adverts rather cringeworthy. I like the one where it was a voiceover on Roger Federer's achievements being done by Tiger Woods when Tiger had more slams which he mentioned at the end. Although in the end the joke was on Tiger after Roger powered ahead and overtook him.

A lot of tennis adverts are pretty poor. I was struggling to remember a good one. Eventually I remembered this one:

It was pretty cool when it first came out anyway.
