Re: PEAK Maria vs PEAK Vika
I wasn't the one who brought up greed. Fact is, Sharapova is by far the greediest of all current players, aside from porn she's pretty much doing absolutely everything she can to make a dime. I wasn't the one who brought this up but this is the one area where Sharapova stans really have to sit down...there's no bigger money-whore on tour.
Truth time: Do you guys really like this stuff and support it or do you secretly cringe as well? If it's the first then you have to be the most gullible sheeple ever
Why do you bother with any secret cringes of Sharapova fans?
Obviously you're so obsessed with Sharapova you can't even ignore her fans let alone the player itself. But you're not the first not the last poster here who pretends he doesn't give a damn about this greedy bitch, yet posts in almost every single thread about her
And it's because of people like you, die-hard haters, who fuel the attention around this money whore and make her such a stand out figure among bunch of other player whom nobody really cares about for a change. Only the most important players in any sport can create such a stir and apart from Serena and Wozniacki nobody even gets close to the attention Sharapova gets. Whether it's justified makes no difference.
I see. Using your athlete image to push unhealthy candy = doing your job. Actually showing up at tour events and trying to play instead of just staying home = greedy. Makes total sense
And by the way, there are a ton of athletes out there who turn down offers and don't attach their name to every single thing just because it pays. Don't act like this is normal behavior because it isn't..she's doing it excessively.
The answer to that is very simple. Most of the WTA players come from a wealthy background, they don't need to earn as much and can afford to lay back the money milking. Sharapova is rich as hell now but if someone told Yuri when he was fleeing towards Syberia that his daughter would become the most paid female athlete in 20 years time nobody would believe you. You don't understand poverty - in relative terms - if you hadn't tasted it. And you'll never want to go back once you've started making the real money. And that is why Sharapova is doing it IMO. To get rid of the wretched past of Siberian forests. Too much drama? Life is full of it. It's a similar case with WS, just replace Siberia with Negro prejudice.
