Is this normal?

There is a certain poster who claims to be Russian (and in fact he/she seems to know Russian), but who uses every opportunity to bash/berate EVERY Russian player (male or female) whether it's deserved or not with exception of one and always cheers against the Russian FedCup team. Is this normal and do I need some urgent professional help or do you have the same reaction like I do?

Thoughts?

Don't let him bother you. He's a little nuts. In love with stats.

You're right. It's an internet board. I should just learn how to use the ignore button (never did it before)

Re: Is this normal?

There are sports fans in NY who root against all the local teams.
I've argued with him a little, he has a sense of humor. I don't think he's too over the top. Except for all the numbers. That puts me to sleep.

I have nothing against criticising players. God knows I have - even my most fav Russian player Sveta. But he does it even when it's not called for. Annoying.

It's only sports. It's all in fun. When I called him nuts, he agreed with me.
