    Maybe take a deep breath before stepping in for the Interview or perhaps he should of declined.

    Situation 1: Player gives cordial and vanilla corporate responses in interview ("Would've been nice to make a few more putts, just happy to be here").

    Wrx response: These guys are robots and have no personality.



    Situation 2: Player speaks their mind in the heat of the moment and essentially summarizes the vast majority of their peers' opinions.

    Wrx response: He's a tool/fool/whiny b***h/etc.



    Can't win here.

    You guys are special. Fox knew **** well what they would get with that interview. He is pissed easy to see. Now guys in the booth running the buss over him. The real clowns are the interviewer and the announcers. All the players should I refuse the rest of the interviews to protest that type ambush tactic

    Finally the truth. After so much spin it's good to hear what everyone knows. USGA screwed up again, the greens suck, turned a major into a goofball tournament. First three days put the pins where the balls don't go. Last day put them where they naturally go to salvage something out of the mess.
  • MalvernMalvern Posts: 415 ✭✭
    You will get what you get when you ask Player to give one of his 10,000 opinions or stick a mic in the face of some guy who has just come off the course. Would be nice to hear a considered opinion from the Players Aassociation or some of the games better thinkers like Geoff Ogilvy a week or so after the event.

    I don't think it matters whether their underlying opinions are correct or not. You're diminishing the event for the winner, you're making yourself the story instead of putting the attention where it belongs, on the player who handles the conditions the best.



    I used to think he'd be an amazing Ryder Cupper. Now I'm embarrassed by his antics on the course during his national open. The Ryder Cup doesn't need another spoiled crybaby.

    That is what I have been saying. These guys don't have to play. How about you think about where you are Bill? How about instead of what you are doing you could be putting on a roof in 90+ degree temperatures, or sitting in a cubicle with a boss who won't let up, or collecting someone else's garbage everyday?



    The whining ungratefulness of some of these people is simply breathtaking.

    I don't think he made himself look stupid at all. Billy is always going to say what's on his mind and if somebody doesn't like it, tough sh!t. I wish everybody would do it. Makes me want to puke with all the politically correct **** that comes out of most interviews.

    I don't see why he's a jerk for stating his opinion??? Maybe he should have stated the obvious in a more appropriate/tactful setting... The USGA, as the game's governing body/organization, has made some questionable moves that do impact the game (beyond the scope of just this particular tournament).

    The existence of this thread is proof Fox got what they wanted. Leave BillyHo alone, he's usually one the good guys and was pi$$ed walking off a disappointing weekend.



    All of you clowns criticizing should think of an analogy for your own lives:

    Let's say you work on a computer daily. You're used to having something reasonably current - more than quick enough to keep up with whatever menial tasks you perform. Now let's say a week before quarter-end you have a "major" (see what I did there:) ) project due. Now instead of your normal PC I swap it out for an old Pentium 1. Sure, you can still do your job. Sure, the star employees are going to get their work done. But wouldn't you be just a little annoyed that one of the 4 weeks out of the year that you know is going to be critical to your success is now going to be that much harder because of something beyond your control?

    he can say what he wants, but to think he can say it without consequence, is naive. right or wrong, he may be apologizing for those comments later.

    Taking the PC stance isn't always a cop out and speaking your mind isn't always the right decision - Billy seems to get these confused all the time - There's an awful lot to be said for the guy who can navigate this reality and say what needs to be said w/o coming off as an idiot...
