Fedal, predictions of GS results next year, WTF, and where Fedal are in terms of the greatest of all time? Why is everything on here so driven by only the top 2-5 players (and Del Potro)? They aren't playing this week, so I sort of don't get why no-one is focusing on other things. Davis Cup, several challengers, tournaments coming up next week. Most of the people on this forum seem like player fans, not tennis fans. What gives? There surely are different things that can be discussed and thought of outside of the same things over and over.

It's just normal. The most popular persons or events get talked about the most. It's like that everywhere.

And as for Davis cup and Challengers, I don't know about everyone else here, but where I'm at, they don't show those on tv. Hell, they don't even show our own davis cup team playing at the nation's capitol! Pathetic.

let's see.. it's been only 2 days since rafa won the us open, an event many on here claimed he'd never win as long as hard-court aces such as nole and murray were still around.. yet he wins the whole thing only dropping one set and becomes the youngest player in the open era to complete a career slam and yet you want folks to discuss davis cup????? for real?

No, it's normal that most on here have a very narrow perspective on the tennis world and Nadal fans want to gloat as well.

The problem is mainly Rafatards. They are trying to push Nadal into the GOAT discussion. A claycourter with a bunch of nice hard court titles. Who gives a crap. He won't be in discussion until he wins at least 14. Good luck. Rafa won't win more than 1 slam next year and that'd should be his career. Body starts breaking down, people start moaning again. ..

I have counted every freaking comment since the past week. It's all Rafa Rafa Rafa Rafa. I am sick and tired of it. Talk about the moon. Talk about a crippled mule. I don't care.

Yeah, the Oscar thread is fun. It's cool that he knows about the King nickname, supposedly. But, yeah, we've talked about this before, when I came on this forum, I thought it was a place to discuss tennis and the ins and outs of the game, but it's really not that way. I definitely didn't expect as many gloryhunter tardish bandwagon fans. I still like this site, but it's just a bit different than what I thought I was coming to, maybe a bit disappointing.

I wasn't moaning, I really don't care either way, I'll easily just ignore GM and that's it, until something different comes up. It's more of a question than anything else, questioning whether anyone has anything different in mind, wondering if anyone focused on anything outside of the same subjects. It is what it is, I don't really care, it's just a computer forum.

I know, you seem really cool personally. There are a lot of cool and knowledgeable people, but they are overrun by the trolls, because obviously they are attention seekers. The discussions about WTF and Fedal are all cool, but it's nice to talk about something else also, change it up a bit.

I guess I would be a little less annoyed if these discussions all didn't end up with Rafa sucks or Roger needs to retire, things like that. That's the sort of funny part, you know where it's all headed.

We're all tards to a point for a certain player.

Though, since it's Rafa, it'll always be like this. Same goes for Federer. The two have a huge fanbase, so it's obvious that when either win something, the more asshole-ish fans will come out in full-swing and gloat like they themselves won the title, lmao.

I agree with all of this, but there are other players outside of Rafa. This isn't Nadal tennis forum. The opening up new threads about Nadal of the same exact subjects that one can just search for and continue is ridiculous. Because tennis never stops, tournament last week, Davis Cup this week, tournaments next week, worlds moving while some are spinning in circles.

You know when Federer fans were rocking the boards after his victories, I just stayed out of the way and let them have their fun and enjoy the moment of their guy having won.

These moments are fleeting. They should be enjoyed.

And in case somebody missed it: Rafa achieved something not ever achieved to this point in tennis history. The closest to it is Laver who won RG Wimby and the USO two times in a row many years apart, but did it on two surfaces only. I don't put Rafa in Laver's class, but this is a stunning achievement. I've watched tennis for a long, long time and to me it's stunning. I never expected it. Never. It's a brilliant achievement. And obviously, I'm thrilled that Rafa was the one to do it!

It's only been two days and since there are no ATP events going on there are no new result threads to discuss. Things will settle down once the Davis Cup rubbers get started on Friday. There are challengers going on but those usually don't get much discussion, unfortunately unless something weird happens or a popular joke player loses again.

He does? I gotta find that thread.

As for GM, maybe I'm the minority, or even the only one, I like GM. Tards gloating, tards bashing, trolling, name calling, sarcastic remarks, etc. sometimes there are some really funny posts here. It's a jungle, but it's fun. Don't get me wrong, though, I also like the serious threads that gives good information. But I gotta admit, most of the time I come here to have fun and have a laugh :D Don't hate me for it, please...

Bottom line : serious or fun, still love MTF :yeah:

The problem is, a large percentage of these individuals are tards and gloryhunters.

You got 20 replies. I made a few threads, got some decent replies, but as soon as everything got back to "normal", these same things pop up. If I made a "Rafa said Roger has a big nose", I'd probably get 20 replies within an hour and a half. In fact, many people admittedly say they only follow the top players. Rafa, Roger, Murray, Nole, JMDP, Nalbandian, Soderling, and that's pretty much it in terms of active players. Then a few retired players like Sampras or Agassi. Same discussions, same players, same discussions with different names. The way I look at it, if you really love the sport of tennis, you can find time to check out the challenger thread to see if Muster won. Or you can check ATP tennis.com to see if a young up-and-comer is having good results. Tennis is more than just a few players, without the other 98 in the top 100, there is no Fedal, and I can go on from there.


But like I said previously, I'm not going to whine about it, everyone can do what they want to do, and quite frankly I don't care much. I just know what to expect now.

Roddickdominator summed it up perfectly. Basically you got a bunch of starfuckers, gloryhunters and tards who don't have a clue or want to understand about the game outside of their immediate top players they love.

Next of all, with this that they denigrate anything outside that sphere because it's something they can't comprehend that people like the sport for what it is and not "the whole my grandfather is tougher than yours:, so the circle continues and the same shit regurgitated.

Automatically they think anything before Fedal is shit, because they want to apply and can only apply the standards now to a previous period when it's not possible at all.
