Bryan Twins Forum Request

I know there are a lot of people who may not like them here, but a lot of people do, too. Their thread has over 900 posts in it and has been very active lately, especially with some new Chinese fans during and after Shanghai. Their thread has more posts than over 15 player forums that already exist, and has almost as many posts as several other forums.

Anyway, it would be cool to have a forum for a doubles team, too :)

Thanks :)

Since it's the off season, the admins will have more time to set this up more quickly than usual... not being distracted by actual tennis results or anything :D

AgassiDomination
12-01-2005, 12:19 AM
Sounds like a good idea, but then they would have to make one for like the top 10 doubles... and is there gonna be enough activity for that?

But yes, I do support the Bryan Forum Request!

Deboogle!.
12-01-2005, 02:27 AM
There are forums for all kinds of singles players that are inactive - some are for guys barely in the top 100 or even 200 in a couple of cases. I think it should be looked at in a case-by-case manner, such as these threads. If even half the people who posted in this thread come to a forum for the Bryans, it will be a very active place :)

And also, there's no risk of them splitting up. Many of the doubles teams that are at the top don't play together for that long, but the Bryans do. They also play mixed doubles at some of the slams and Bob might try to jumpstart his singles career so I think there's special potential for a forum for them to be pretty active :)

Noelle
12-01-2005, 02:42 AM
There's no chance of them splitting up since they're a winning combo. (Plus I heard that it actually benefits them a lot by being marketed as a team.)

So I say YES to a Bryans forum. :)

Can we puhlease have a thread for the Bryans!?! With their recent success @ the AO and Davis Cup, it just establishes them as the best doubles team in the world, and their wins have also brought many more fans.

They're very deserving of a forum and it would make me pretty happy if you gave them one. :)

As someone else said earlier, it appears that the admins here feel the same way as the ATP that the doubles game does not deserve any space in tennis which would explain why they ignore this request and hope we will just go away. :mad:
Well, the Bryans challenged that attitude with their lawsuit and now the ATP homepage has a doubles section and they are getting some coverage! :yeah:

I don't get it either Andrew, and something like 46 different people have voiced their support in this thread... even if 1/3 or 1/2 of them participate in a forum, which I think they will, that will be a plenty active forum to be worth having one, and it will be more active than a lot of the forums that are already here.

We're not gonna give up!

ae wowww
02-18-2006, 07:14 PM
Yeah, I noticed that. I saw some people have posted 2 or 3 times out of genuine shock that nothing has been done, months later. This is a mini Bryans thread in its own right, which must merit a forum alone!

Deboogle!.
02-18-2006, 08:20 PM
The thing is also that they're starting to transcend the sport. They appeared all over new york city yesterday - they closed the stock market!!!!!!! and did many other things. There is lots to talk about regarding them and a forum for them would be active, even when they're not currently playing. I just don't get why we're getting ignored :(

Yeah the section has been setup to be individual player forums.

Deboogle!.
02-19-2006, 01:35 AM
I don't understand why not - they're a team that are obviously functioning as if they are one player, they don't play mens doubles with anyone else and they're brothers so they're not going to change like other players do, and there's obviously enough interest.

No one posts in some of the player forums - even a couple of the USA player forums are almost completely inactive and are less active than the Bryans thread, I don't understand why we can't have a forum merely because of the technicality that they are two people and not one.

No offense to Jan-Mike but no one even really ASKED For a player forum for him and he has one - even though he is injured, barely plays and is ranked really low, and there's next to no activity in his forum.

I'm sorry but to me this logic fails in all respects.

I don't think there are any plans to add forums for doubles teams at this time.
Well, there comes a time for new things for anyone who is open to them. Just because there has never been a forum for a doubles team in the past is not really a valid reason to not have one now. The Bryans are now and always will be playing together. I can understand the logic of not making doubles forums for other pairings because none of them have a permanence that you can count on. Most people do tend to change partners which would result in multiple forums for some players if they wanted one with each new partner.... But the Bryans do not! So whatever logic originally decreed that doubles teams shouldn't get forums should certainly be reviewed in the case of this particular team.

buzzy
02-19-2006, 07:57 PM
OK I will raise your points with the decisionmakers and will respond here again when I can.

I'm pretty much agreeing with everyone here - I don't really see why they shouldn't have a forum, they're re-vamping the doubles scene, will be partners forever and are practically one person even though they're two. Having a forum for them, labeled "the Bryan Brothers" won't do any harm, and heck, it'll shut us up :p because we won't go down without a fight.

Thanks for reconsidering, Gravity :)

Boo...Hissss
Still no progress :mad:

I know very little about the technical difficulty of setting up a new forum. Is it really that complicated a procedure that makes getting this new one such a big deal? Or is it simply a specific doubles-hating admin who is stubbornly refusing to give in to the wishes of those who have been asking for what has turned into a ridiculously long period of time? Not that we don't all appreciate the work that the admins do to set these things up for the technologically challenged such as myself. We do appreciate it, but the fans here have provided a very logical argument for their case and have become extremely frustrated at the weak response. Can someone explain the continued resistance because it makes no sense that these guys aren't considered worthy of a forum. How many grand slam titles does someone need to win or how many weeks to they need to be at #1 before they can get a forum of their own? :confused:

Still waiting...though not so patiently any longer!

Doctor Dance
02-21-2006, 05:57 PM
doubles teams are proned to change partners - if you give the bryan twins a forum you have to give those doubles teams that have good support as well, and if that happens and the team changes it is a hassle to keep changing the forums as well

i'm just guessing here as to why they don't give forums for doubles, singles only.

Deboogle!.
02-21-2006, 09:02 PM
But I think things should be examined on a case-by-case basis and the Bryans are not going to start playing with other partners. Plus, they're the only doubles team that's really transcending the sport, doing a lot of publicity, gaining new fans, making appearances, etc. I don't think it's logical to compare them to the normal doubles players who switch teams all the time.

I really don't understand, why don't they have their own forum! :confused:
A lot of people like them and would like to talk about them... And yeah, they are almost the one man! For example, I can't imagine one Bryan without enother on court! :p
Pease, make this forum!!!! We really need it! ;)

Bob Bryan is playing singles in Las Vegas next week. So can we have a Bob Bryan forum and we'll just talk about the brothers as a team there, too? :angel:

rather than have an uproar from everyone why don't you just make the damn forum, it is successful or causes too much hassle then pull it from the board but you can't make an assumption that these things will happen. The bryans are practically one person dude, one doesn't be without the other (except when bob plays doubles which is incredibly rare).
Just make the forum please...there's more support/posts in this one thread than there is in some of the player forums y'all have already got. which is why i'm so surprised that there's this ridiculous amount of time being wasted on something as simple as creating another forum.

This is what's great about package deals: you get more bang for your buck.

Bryans forum, please! :D
