Establishment Mentality: Yes, It Also Exists Among Fans Base

Fans of some players have long accused various tennis federations of excluding (or faliring to help)
their faves because she does not conform to the establishment approved, unofficial code of conduct

On this, fan base of different players have argued both sides, forcefully and with vitriol a times.


So it was surprsing to see these same fan bases close rank and show disapproval for Rezai for her on court and off court behaviour.

They were in fact saying that Rezai behavior and attitude is deviating from the established behavior set by the collective body of their respective faves.

Please discuss...

perhaps if this was reworded in our every day language we might know what it is you want us to discuss!We get bitch, we get cheat but I am afraid 'establishment' and 'deviation' and perhaps even 'collective' are a little removed from the little bit of chit chat we do here everyday.

Rena- a tennis great! 22 at striking distance.

I agree with tennisfannn, I think you are trying too hard. Put away the thesaurus (since most of your word choices are hardly fitting) and try to more clearly state what it is you want us to discuss.

Posts here are so snappy and perhaps showing a hint of jealousy and discrimination.

Aravane is deviant.

Discuss why posters of different fan base are united in their condemnation of Rezai?
There was even a thread asking whther she bad or good for tennis.

The same fans have argued tooth and nail when a player a given fan base happen to support find herself excluded, whether from national federation and internation tennis body.
