Please don't let Phil Taylor go! Don't have us go through the next three weeks hanging on tenterhooks. Sign him to a long-term contract now! If he leaves, what will I do with my old Taylor jerseys and especially my old Taylor shoes? Oh, wait. Those are Chuck Taylors. Never mind.

It makes me sick when those in the press bemoan the monsters that they themselves have created. If the media feel uncomfortable with the extended trade and contract talks, exaggerated rumors and constant me-first attitudes, then they should stop reporting every sigh, sniffle or sneeze by the athletes involved.
