Re: What type of player's personality attract fans?
I don't think the initial attraction of most fans to their faves has much to do with actual personality, but rather that they project the personality on to their fave that they would like her to have. Same applies btw to hated players.
The initial attraction/repulsion is usually based on appearance, results, and in the case of more serious fans, style of play. Once a fan decides to follow/hate a player, every word or action is carefully interpreted to fit the desired personality.
The blandest and most innocuous statements by those players are thus interpreted as classy shade or classless bitchiness, kindhearted generosity or insufferable dullness, etc., depending on whether the fan has decided to love or hate the player concerned.
