Do you identify with a fanbase?

I was just wondering (and partially spurred from the "most annoying fanbase" thread), because I don't identify with any of the player fanbases...I have favorites players, just like everyone though. I guess I'm kind of a tennis loner.

Re: Do you identify with a fanbase?

ALG-Fanbase (but it is a small fanbase)

Something was bound to go right sometime today, All these broken pieces fit together to make a perfect picture of us
It got cold and then dark so suddenly and rained, It rained so hard the two of us were the only thing
That we could see for miles and miles
And in the middle of the flood I felt my worth, When you held onto me like I was your little life raft
Please know that you were mine as well
Drops of water hit the ground like God's own tears
And spread out into shapes like Salad bowls and basins and buckets for bailing out the flood

Re: Do you identify with a fanbase?

Identify most with: Maria Sharapova and Justine HH fanbases

Identify least with: Williams sisters fanbase (I actually like them but just not most of their fanbase. But there are like a handful of Williams fans I love. They know who they are.)

Re: Do you identify with a fanbase?

I wish I did, I mean there isn't enough Nastya fans to classify a form of a "fan base" on here. Wish we could be sneaky and gang up on people like the Davenport, Sharapova, Williams and JHH fans do.

It's just me basically... I'm the fan base.

Re: Do you identify with a fanbase?

Sharapova and Henin-Hardenne

But there are lots of awsome posters in other fanbases too. I don't identify with their fanbase, but they are cool posters.

I don't particularly identify with any fanbase, although there are many players I admire, but I have to say I do not admire the vast majority of the fan bases.
I post in ones where I am made to feel welcome and there is a sense of maturity, which isn't many.
Some of the fan bases seem to centre around a certain perception of the player and are not willing to have a broader view expressed about the player.
There is quite a bit of "be-one-of-the-gang-or-go-away" behaviour in the fan bases. I'm all for playfulness but not if it is mud-slinging or offensive. So you're not the only one Pheobo
