WTAWorld - A Question?

Are there any players that you WOULD like, BUT

The fans of that player on WTAWorld cause you to not support them or dislike them?

If you're not paying for something, then you're the product.

Re: WTAWorld - A Question?

No, I am perfectly capable of forming my own opinion, thank you.
I just look at their performance when playing the game.

Re: WTAWorld - A Question?

when I'm not bothered about a player, the fact their fans are nice and I get on well with them surely helps.
So answer is yes.

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.

... i wont even reply to that one ; i have many comebacks for it.

no not really, i just judge for myself. I just look at their style of game and what it interests me in them, their character and sportsmanship. I mean why would you hate a player just because they have bad fans. I mean almost any top player has a few horrible fans or more, but its not like they are directly related to any of the players. So it wouldn't be cool judging a player by his/her's "fan" opinion.

Re: WTAWorld - A Question?

No offence to anyone, BUT- if someone stopped supporting player only becouse her fans on interet board (that means people who You dont even know in person) are annoying, then something must be really wrong with that user

I'm alaways right, even when Im wrong...

Re: WTAWorld - A Question?

no, I base my favoritism on results:
If they constantly get beaten by my fav - me like
If they constantly beat my fav - me hate

This is the only type of valid response to this thread. A "no" response, would, I'm afraid, give this debate credibility, as if a "yes" answer if somehow rational or acceptable.
