View Full Version : What is w/ the Williams sister Fan Bandwagon?

I don't recall ever seeing so many people supporting two players in my life. It's like a bandwagon that many sports teams go thru. They have like a ton of fans while winning, and then they fall off the face of the earth when the losing begins. I can't help but think the only reason many posters here support them, and there are so less of other players supporters on this board, simply because it's a bandwagon chain event. As soon as they lose, you'll see a drop in the number of Sister Supporters.

As Pam said, the injury bug, has to bite soon. ;)

I have a been a fan since 1997 when venus was not even top twenty or fifty. I have been through bad press, allegations of match fixing, players saying rude things, obnoxious commentators and reporters as well as other fans, knee tendenitis, wrist tendenitis, sprained ankles, food poisoning and bitch slaps by martina hingis and jennifer capriati spanking my favorites and guess what..... I'M STILL HERE AND WILL BE UNTIL THEY RETIRE.

GO WILLIAMS!

PS even after they retire I will still be here so dont get your hopes up :wavey:

Could have guessed you have no life. :wavey:

I don't understand it however, I wonder if they run drug testing accurately at tennis matches now? There is some reason why those two are dominating that is unfair to the rest of the tour.

wow so the best response you could do was attack me? typical. Being a martina fanatic how can I expect anything less?

Speaking of martina perhaps thats why your favorite fled the sport with the oncoming drug tests? She probably resorted to everything she could to compete in today's game against the best: venus serena kim lindsay monica justine momo and couldn't cut it. I'm sure martina has few steroid cocktails floating in her system.

Thanks for sharing, hater.

I thought we all just liked them because they were black
:confused:

You guys are running out of criticism angles.

This one is too lame to even inspire the oO0Oo's of the board to join in.

Back to the woodshed and give it another try. :p :p :p

I guess you don't know what a bandwagoner is.. Haven't you noticed that the more the sisters win, the more haters pray for them to lose?? No one jumps on the bandwagon. They just hate more and their supporters stick with them through thick and thin :fiery:

tour attendance is down, sponsorship is down, fans taking part in actually attending events are down?

if they and their fans are so good for tennis, why is the tennis world going under with them at the top of the ranks. the only good part about having them on tour is they don't play every event meaning i don't have to puke after watching their faked matches.

I don''t see it like that all.
Their are tennis fans becoming Williams fans becasuse they see the talent that these two have, the hard work they put into it. They are getting more and more respect, which they deserve.
Maybe it's because they are winning, but society, and in general human nature, doesn't like losers. Sorry to bring her in, but Anna lost so many matches, and people don't have respect for her TENNIS game, or lack of it. Why jump on her 'bandwagon' if she is not winning? Why jump on Venus and Serena's 'bandwagon', because they will continue to rack up the majors, rack up the endorsements, make movies, make commercials, be successful business women, have education, etc...

Not to add to this ridiculous thread, but drugs probably wouldn't help much with tennis. There are those who are strong and powerful, but if they can't keep the ball in play and place it well, they are going to lose! There are those who are fast-fast-fast, but if they can't do anything defensive with the ball, they are going to lose. There are those who have many weapons, but if you're not mentally prepared to excel, you're going to lose. There are those who have potential to be on top, but if you're not going to be consistent, then you're not going to make it to the top. What Venus and Serena have is the COMPLETE PACKAGE. They have poise, style, power, mental toughness, smarts, athleticism, determination, weapons...they've got it all. And that's why everyone talks about them. Even when they are not in a tourney, they are the bar to which excellence is measured. To take a set off them is to accomplish something special. I guess, in a way, EVERYONE has jumped on the bandwagon. Why not?! They are the best. Theirs is a story that will never be repeated again. WE are the lucky fans who get to witness it all. We get to be a part of this special tennis moment in time. Magnet, just enjoy it! Get rid of the bitterness and just enjoy the BEAUTY THAT IS VENUS & SERENA!!! :worship:

bitter martina lover. So sad you have no one to cheer for anymore. hater is what hater does i guess even resorting to lies to defend themselves. Its okay we all know its because your torn up inside that your precious martina is no more. Take heart because you can still watch as she spirals down the rankings... yippe!

Probably the same way most Martina fans became Martina fans, after she started winning. :rolleyes:

considering you are a martina groupie I guess you can't figure anything out. Truly you can't even make a point without implicating yourself. Are you ten? I can understand a ten year old making such a careless mistake. on the other hand I'm selling ten year olds short.

Who cares what martina achieved? I don't. I'm sure venus and serena don't either. Of course if you must cling to past achievements in your desperate attempt to justify your has been favorite, well, I understand. I won't spoil what little fun you have left. Go ahead relive martina's past glories maybe they'll keep you warm as her career goes cold. :wavey:

Martina left the game because she couldn't stand losing to the sisters anymore. Magnetic is probably the loser racist zero of Blogger Dufus. ;)

LoL I haven't gotten anyone banned. I'm just following up a comment that certain banned players feel the need to return under different names. Funny though they always reveal themselves by spewing the same old hate. No worries its kind of funny in a childlike Rain Man sort of way. :wavey:

Joeys I've got no problem with ya. Youre actually usually one of the sane martina fans. Hey even I, despite some of my posts, don't hate martina, I simply must retalitate when the Magnetic Losers rear their ugly heads.

last time I checked, Jelena Dokic, Elena Bovina, Justine Henin-Whatever, Elini, Ai, Monica and many others weren't black. I don't see what that has to do with the posts in this thread Joey :confused: :confused:...maybe I'm slow and missed something. And how could you not see that the reaction the thread starter got was as a result of his hostile attitudes towards the sisters and their fans without even knowing them? That's ish in my opinion. The sisters can get bashed and the fans can't say anything? Whatever :fiery:. That's why I hate this board sometimes.

I mean even when losers like Blogger Dives show up and take pride that their country slaughtered half of europe, well, you just have to laugh that someone is that much of a hater of V & S that they will stoop that low. Its amazing how serious people take their tennis.

Posters like Magnetic Loser are laughable because they have no credibility. I say toy with them and move on. :kiss:

Damn some people are so full of hate- you just can't admit Serena and Venus are simply better players and that's why they are having great results.

Before I understood why the Hingis fans were venting, their favourite player had called it quits at quite an early age so it was understandable but the hate they spew in their posts is DISGUSTING .

Joey - do you stereotype all fans?

BUT.. what about all the people who only like the white players? or the Asians? or the Spanish or the Russians. Why not include them in your dislike of posters who like only one race of players. LMAO
