Fan poll #2 - more annoying?

What's more annoying to you, the tunnel-vision fan or the anti-fan.

Some characteristics of the tunnel-vision fan (a.k.a. people blinded by their fandom)
they perceive the most benign comments (and sometimes non-comments) as an insult to their favorite
they invade other threads and somehow make it about their favorite
they tear down players that could be a threat to their favorite in some way (whether on or off court) and belittle their accomplishments
they constantly make excuses for their favorites and/or the people associated with them
they attack other fans who aren't a fan of their player, criticize their player (even if that person's a fan), or sometimes fans who just aren't complimentary enough
they constantly make stupid threads about their favorite

Some characteristics of the anti-fan
they constantly make stupid threads criticizing a certain player
they attack other fans that dislike that player
they invade cheer threads to crap on the parade
they revel in every disappointment that player faces
they twist everything that player does, says, or has said about them to make them look bad
if that player does do something questionable, they bring it up for months, or even years, no matter what kind of circumstances there were, how young that player was, or how much that player has since changed
they belittle any accomplishment that player had

the anti-fan and the tunnel-vision fan generally have more than one of the above aspect

I personally find the tunnel-visioners more annoying because they tend to pervade the board as a whole. At least the anti-fan's annoying comments generally stick to topics about the players they hate so are easier to avoid.

I dislike tunnel-vision fans just purely because everything they say is about THEIR fave.
I can deal with anti-fans. everyone is an anti fan somehow.

every fan is like that. so ur saying u hate all fans. every fan is a tunnel vision fan, and an anti fan. that's what makes sports what it is. no matter how bad your favorite player, team, or athlete is in your eyes they are the best. that's the fun in rooting for them. they are the best in your eyes, and that's all that matters. tunnel vision is normal for any fan. everyone is biased toward their favorite player or always sticks with them, and brings them up in the conversation. it's the lifestyle of sports, and it's the way it works. no sports fan can like them all because if they say they do they aren't a true sports fan. a true sports fan has tunnel vision, and is an anti fan.

I think the 'anti-fans' or haters are the most pathetic. They are mostly trolls with nothing better to do than create other names to put down players and create controversies. At the least the 'tunnel vision' fans like certain players and say positive things about them, but the haters only live to put down others, and most of the time you cant even tell what players they like because everything they write is negative. They arent real tennis fans and have nothing constructive to contribute to the board.

I despise anti-fan

the proof is when a Williams Sister loses then this board becomes inflammed by them. Say what you want - anti-fan is a "HATER"

and everybody knows that a "hater" is just plain Jealous.

I would go with the tunnel-fans who usually cannot accept that there are other players that can have talent and play better than their favourite.

Laissez nous créer, une arme en amour, une bombe à lumière, un fusil à fleur, une vie sans barrière.
Laissez nous rêver, d’un enfant président, d’un roi sans couronne, d’un Jésus indien, d’un Dieu qui pardonne, même ceux qui l’oublient.

You left off an option. What about fans that can't handle the truth about Maria that they make up polls to get back at people who tell the truth about her and her inablities to be two dimentional.

I don't see why you people get so defensive when it comes to telling the truth about Maria i mean people on this board have wanted the WS baned from tennis, even sport commentators have said that the WS were bad for tennis the exact same thing they said before blacks were able to play tennis and other sports. I think that is where the problem lies you all can hate on the WS all you want but how dare we say anything negative about the precious, the beautyful, white Maria, but I guess if she were black it would be a different story. A lot of you would just want me and others to set back say nothing , but how many of you have gotten on this board and said the WS were bad for tennis without having prejudice behind it.
