John McEnroe likes to come out with controversial arguments.
The last one is about getting rid of chair umpires and linesmen. During a recent interview John said "I'd happily do without. You had no umpires but you had a challenge system and the players called their own lines, all of a sudden things would get a whole lot edgier. Obviously it would have to be on every court.
That goes without saying. You could challenge calls. If you thought the other guy was blatantly cheating you could challenge it. Then the fans would boo him and people would get way more into it. People would say: ‘See this guy? This guy is such a cheater’, it would attract at least 30% more audience".
Only BigMac can come out with this kind of proposals… but you agree?
