Separate Section for Private Life of Players

Hi, can we have a separate section in the forum for discussing players private lives please?
It's nauseating to constantly see gossip in amongst the professional life stuff which is what i want to read.

I don't agree, they should stay where they are already, they get more read from people.

I think this is a ridiculous idea. If someone doesn't want to read something they don't have to click on that thread.

A place to discuss about tennis players, coaches, or fans, but have nothing to do with the game itself.
On MTF they have this section for anything not appropriate for GM. The section was created 9 years ago, so it's not really an innovative idea. Common sense >>>>> delete button.

Amen.

I think a mix of news anything tennis/ player personal on GM is one of the reasons it's become much more popular than MTF in the last few years.

People can relate to these issues and can express themselves in relation to players they like or dislike.

Not as many people would see these threads if you hide them away in some other section.

You will defo see post decline, something TF does not need .

The balance is perfect right now. 80% Tennis 20% Other news

Many people don't go to TF anymore because of strict rules. Please don't try to make this place more of a Ghost town.
