Why do people feel the need...

To defend their favorite players?

You don't know them...
They don't know who you are...
They have done nothing personally for you...

Don't take critical comments about a player personally- its just not needed and causes problems. You have a right to like a player but other than that?

If someone will enlighten me?

Let me rephrase my question:

Why do they take attacks on their fav. player personally?

well thats beacuse we are fans..

Of course its irrational ,but when does life ever make sense ,people have their faves and they defend them ,i see no probs with that ,the only thing i DO NOT like is unneeded nastiness when a player loses ,enjoying others sadness seems mean to me.

I mean whats the point of watching if ya couldnt careless about the players ,you need areason to cheer and its normal nature for people to react when someone is mean about there fave ,although some do over react ,thats is true!

when you love someone, you identify yourself in your idol so if anyone attack your idol, you feel that as a personal attack....

I doubt posters take critical comments against their faves personally, it's just who you like. If someone criticizes your favorite band or type of music you defend it.

I guess I know what ya mean, but some people are HUGE fans of their faves and you can't really expect anything less.

Half the time it's not even about the players.

In some arguments you'll find, posters are reacting to other posters, and not necessarily the subject matter. The players do matter and we take up for them, but once you open up a post you know the tone and probably the content before it's done downloading the page.

Venus might as well get her mail forwarded to Serena's shadow. She's going to be there forever!

If someone was to attack my fav, Venus or Serena, then i would say something.

I dont no why, i guess i feel like because i am a big fan that i should say something, and that i have every right to.

Maybe we should be asking why there is a need to defend the player?

Remember this is just internet.
and they defend cause they are their favorites. that word "favorite" thats what it is. you don't have to know them personally to enjoy the players. And you don't know if these people do take it personally but what you do know is that this is a Tennis board. To talk about players and tennis etc. so.........................
