Fan opportunists?

How comes that some posters seem to be fans of about a dozen players (eg. considering their signatures)?

IMO, they can't be true fans. Supporting her and her and her and her .....
We should call them "fan opportunists" as they divide their attention, support and affection between various players. Probably to be on the safe side - when fave #1 loses, fave #2 is injured, then maybe fave #3 will win a match. And if not, there still is fave #4. And so on.

Well, I think some people put multiple players in their signatures as not to draw attention to their ONE fav player, which undoubtedly would be attacked.
