Vamos Rafa merged with official site - any alternatives

now that VR has merged with the offical site can anyone recommend another good fan site? or does anyone know where VR regulars have switched to?

rafa's official site is pretty lame, and the banter on the VR forums were so much fun - i feel lost without my VR buddies!!!!!

Re: Vamos Rafa merged with official site - any alternatives

sorry for you, but i really prefer the official site ....even if it sounds much more like a commercial site

Thank GOD! The official message board will never be able to replace the wondrous frivolty of the ex-vamosrafael one

Rafa's official site is a mess, indeed.

Re: Vamos Rafa merged with official site - any alternatives

I'm sorry but i always found the people on the vr boards really rude and unwilling to accept new people, i was one of the original memebers and i felt like if i didnt post every 5 minutes no one would respond to me, if u are looking for a new site you should just start your own...sorry about my rants

In fact, I only went there to drool at pretty Rafa pics!

I don't know whether the people over there were actually unwilling to accept new people, but I think I get what you mean... also, there always seemed to be quite a high percentage of very young fans talking about Rafa's love life - including the incidental Xisca bashing - rather than his assets, and I can't really appreciate that. So I've never posted there, just lurking.
Even more, I've always feared to get bashed over there when people find out I'm actually a fan of Rogi as well!

But in any way, both the vr board and the new one seem to take care of their job a lot better than the official site... all too PR-driven to me.
