Williams fans: Something to think about

There have been a couple of threads created by non-Williams fans such as "Serena kicked Venus' butt" and "Serena is the better sister as Richard Williams had stated. " It's ironic in that the last two seasons when Venus was dominating everyone the popular opinions wer Serena was the weaker of the sisters, she won't be able to establish Venus success, and she will never match Venus' mental strength.

I just can't help but think some people are trying to stir up conflict and division among the Williams fan base. The strongest defense for Serena and Venus against their detractors have always been the unity among a Serena fan, Venus fan, or Venus and Serena fan to dispel or question an unsubstantiated negative opinion or view concerning the words, actions, or tennis game of either sister.

Yes, its all a big conspiracy.

We are all conspiring to run "Williams fans" off the board.

So far its been totally uneffective, but in time our plan shall unfold.

But she seems to have found it!

Topspin, if Venus and Serena had Mashona Washington's results and ranking no one (even people on this board) would care. Case closed.

P.S. Becca, it's INeffective...unless the say UNeffective in the Great White North.

Beige - I could go through your posts and correct spelling or grammar, as I could mine.

However, I have a life.

I'd also like to add, that I've seen more threads and posts dedicated to "Williams Fans - dont repond! They are all out to get us", then I have posts and threads from the so called evil-doers who are pissing you off.

What is with people clinging to a fan base anyhow?

If someone made a post about how all Ferrero fans were cold fish and pillow biters I think I'd laugh - and do something like write "I LOVE COLD FISH" in my signature.

I dont know, maybe thats just me

While I'm on the topic, whats with the gloating from fan bases?

I'm not even talking about Willie fans, I mean from everyone.

The whole idea of "my player beat your player so I'm better" is rather sad.

I mean, can't people accomplish stuff in their own lives, instead of bragging about what someone else did?

When Ferrero beat Agassi or Safin I didn't feel the need to post about how I'm better than their fans, cause he won

Just a question.

LMAO at this thread. they are out to divide us!!! lol!!! in other words, Venus and Serena are one and you can't like one and not the other. oh well, so much for my always liking Serena and not being too drawn to Miss Vee. she reminds me of a certain "cold fish" actually now that i think about it. but then again my real agenda is to divide and conquer! too stupid by far.

Topspin, I noticed that on Saturday after the women's final. I stayed away from divisive threads because I love both girls. Saturday was Serena's day. She deserved that title because she played with all her heart and soul.

tennischick - when you say "cold fish" do you mean Sampras-esque? As in, boring and reserved ?

Andwhen you say Baracuda, do you mean bubbley, and wears their heart on their sleeve (though not to Hewitt-esque proportions)?

altho "barracuda" also implies a willingness to fight aggresively.
