No I'm sure he'd search for the opinion of a c**t first.
I'm sure he's never even heard of the forum. Just find it a bit weird saying "thanks" to someone who doesn't even know you're saying it. If your friend John gives you a gift, would you then come up to me and say "Hey Federer, thanks John!" bit weird that.
Anyway, hopefully he stays on and coaches our defense next season, we are going to need it!
