It's all about Nadal right now anyway. Seems to be a double standard though as I don't see many people (if any at all) complaining about all the Rafa gushing over there. But yet a few Fed fans are a bit obnoxious (sometimes baited by others) and we're told to be quiet and shut up?
That is precisely what I have thought lately. It wasn't always this way. In the beginning I thought MTF was quite a nice place....but now there is a double standard where by it's open season to post ridiculous stuff about Roger and then call any of Roger's fans overly sensitive for bothering to respond. I hope you guys don't think I am one of the obnoxious Roger fans. I did get sucked into giving my opposing point of view in that Charisma thread, however I didn't bash Nadal in the process or flame any other poster. I hadn't realized that the whole thing was baiting to start with. But the principal of the thing annoys me.....to be told to shut up when all I wanted to do was to point out that NO NOT EVERYONE
loves Nadal, or thinks he has charisma while Roger has none. If it's all based on opinion then what's wrong with hearing everyone's opinion?
You are right that we should ignore this and try to focus on better discussions.....but if that stuff doesn't stop, then I think we should unite and flood those baiting threads out of business.
