Why are Seles fans so arrogant??

I found "some" Seles fans really arrogant...possibly more arrogant than Williams fans. What do you think?

I wouldn't say they were arrogant but there are some obsessed and dramatic Seles fans out there.

not only are they arrogant, but they downright mean spirited1 but of course no one comments on that. several of them have said that the sisters belong on the men tour, so maybe they should start an overweight tour so Seles can beter compete!

some people don't see monica in the right perspective anymore imho. that's what I noticed so over the years. (and I am not talking about her tennis)

In the middle of the night
I go walking in my sleep
Through the desert of the truth
To the river so deep
We all end in the ocean
We all start in the streams
We're all carried along
By the river of dreams
In the middle of the night

When you start a stupid thread like this you are bound to get some stupid posts like that.

I would go so far as to suggest that all fans of a particular player are by nature arrogant whenever they refer to that player, because they are championing their favourite's strengths over everyone elses. However, fans of a player usually reflect that player's personality, and Seles seems one of the least arrogant people around to me. Noisy, it's true, but not at all arrogant.

They act like Victims out to live their lives through the biggest Victim they know.

What's unfortunate is that their chief Victim is no longer in the top ten and has diminishing skills - I see some of them getting more vicious.

You seem to know Seles fans rather better than I would expect for someone who's only been here for 6 days.

Tell me, how did you get to know us all so well ?

I post on Go tennis.com AND yahoo AND VenusSerena.com...and you ALL act like victims seeking refuge through Monica. It's quite obvious.

However, I must admit....Monica's follwing is the most diverse group of all.
