European Stars and Stripes (Newspaper) - May 24, 1968, Darmstadt, HessePage 18 the stars and stripes As a Tennis fan of Long standing begins a fellow whose angry greeting made up last week s fan mail i d like to offer a rebuttal of the sports column. In which my emancipation that was his backs ving. Then he ripped into me like so first it is not necessary to make a lot of noise in order to enjoy a sporting event. Second Tennis fans Are not inhibited. They refrain from Lou comment because they Are courteous. Yelling would bother not Only the players but also the other spectators. The statement that play is stopped during applause for an earned Point is presumably an attempt at , 1 doubt that anyone associated with Tennis except the promoters is particularly enthused about the idea of attracting More and More of the common Folk the cult of mediocrity in t quite that widespread , the analogy with baseball is not Apt. Tennis fans Are very much closer to the action than baseball fans Are. I doubt that even the most composed Batter would relish having people scream at him from Only a few feet away while he is facing some wild Rookie fire Baller. Fifth there is no language Barrier in Tennis. The rules an the method of keeping score can be understood by anyone of aver age intelligence after a five minute concept that s rarely honoured is live and let live i never heard a Tennis fan complain about the noise at a football s Only fair that he should be allowed his relative serenity. De Griffin Darmstadt that first Point i Don t hold it against anyone who does t feel it s necessary to make noise. Personally though find it More fun i can t really say necessary to Yak it up a bit. Second i know the Yelling would bother the fans As Well As the players for a while anyhow. But they d get used to it. The live and let live concept would win out in the end. The paraphrase statement was indeed keenly Analysed. Third i d include the players right up there with the All As attendance rises purses fatten. Amateurs would be Able to afford to turn professional. The cult of what in t quit what yet o.k., the baseball analogy loses. I should have tried basketball maybe or boxing. Those ringside Loudmouth Are right there where the action is no that composed Batter does t have to relish the screaming but he d accept it if he could hear it above the voices of the chattering , five minutes is reasonable. You Call it rules and methods of keeping score i Call it a language Barrier. Somebody name of Van Alen has come up with a simplified scoring system which May save a lot of five minute and let live has already been touched upon. I la let you come and shut up at my football game if you la let me come and Hoot at your Tennis match. Tennis is a great game. I enjoy watching it and playing it i just like to see it lose some of its stuffiness is All. I sure Hope dancer s image wins the Belmont. I Don t think he s really a Junkie and he showed me some class trying to go through pm instead of around pm in the Preakness. Then again so what if Forward pass takes it and becomes the first triple Crown Winner since citation. With a Little misfortune dancer s image could be disqualified again and How Many triple Crown cheaters have there been i hear Floyd Patterson the Guy who once regained the in regain Able is going after it again. Lot of people think it would be great for boxing to have Floyd Patterson at the top again May be so but i Don t think regarded Floyd a great Champion because he was such a Nice Guy. He was a soft spoken kind Man set a wonderful example for the kiddies. After 2l/2 years of fun with Guys like Tommy Jackson pet Rademacher Roy Harris and Brian London he had those three Good fights with Ingemar Johansson one with Tommy Mcneeland finally agreed to take on Sonny Liston. Of All Patterson s challengers Rademacher took the cake he fought his first professional fight for the world s heavyweight championship. Knocked Floyd Down too before said Rademacher was the Only Guy he d Ever heard of who started at the top and worked his Way to me it was pretty Boring during Patterson s time. Boxing needs something now but not him.
