Simple question...tough answer...
Certainly not the Federer fans i can assure you.
the common tennis fan that watches anything are the most knowledgeable.
Not the most knowledgeable,but maybe the most fair? Id say the most knowledgeable might be the Sampras-fans because if u r a fan of Pete you probably have been around for quite a while and have seen champs come and go, i get the impression for example that lots of Nadals fans (kids) started to watch tennis at last years Wimbleon or this years AO...Based on some of their statements.
And where are Hewitt's 'Fanatics'?
Are u a Hewitt-fan? Sorry then, i went with the top 4,the old GOAT, and,the common tennis-fan and then the rest
Milos Raonic fans seem to be most fair(and knowledgable)here.
Nope. My favourite players are Henin (well used to be), Djokovic, Roger and Murray.
Roger's fans are okay, I guess. I don't remember them behaving in bad way during matches. You know, it's very hard to group tennis fans. This is not football. I'm not sure, but I think that tennis fans are not organised as football ones. When they start a fight or something, it's almost always organised in advance. And when it comes to tennis, I have a feeling that people just go with the flow. Everything is on the individual level.
I can tell you what you want to hear TMOP - that Roger's fans are just the most informed fans in the world m'kay. And did I mention that Roger is the greatest? I've heard it said he can fly and is currently finalising his plan to combat global warming before being crowned Emperor of The Known Universe.
Or I can tell you what really think - daft question. Any responses would be largely conjecture.
You should start boxing, get ur frustrations out.
I said i think the Sampras-fans are the most knowledgeable, im assuming this, i do not know.
Yeah, perhaps the most knowledgable since they watched tennis for a long time.
LOL 2 people voted for DJokofans
Good for you. Doesn't make the question any less daft though.
I'm going to say Alex Bogdanovic has the most kowledgeable fans.
Yes, that was my argument.
Well they just seem like a bunch of fair and knowledgable tennis fans to me.
I didnt say it did.
How so? explenation?
Bogo has fans?!?
The greatest thing the Djoker did, was convince the world his fans didn't exist.
They're just so fair...and knowledgable about tennis.
You dont' understand the argument.
It goes like this:
Statement A: My dog speaks English.
Now, I dont have a dog, therefore the statement A is true. QED
Aaah ok...how clever:neutral:
I have no explanation TMOP. I was being facetious. I honestly have no idea which player if any has the most knowledegable fans and can't think of any criteria that might be applied to answer the question.
I simply don't buy that the length of time watching tennis = increased knowledge and fairness (the argument that appears to be being made for Sampras fans).
It's elementary logic.
Raonic has no fans, therefore all his fans here are knowledgable and fair.
Do you go fishing in your spare time?
Alright, i didnt expect to find the ultimate true answer, i like the speculating and comparisons though, ones truth is different from anothers.
Fair enough mate.
Excuse me sir, but your signature is blatantly incorrect... The classiest player of all time is Manuel Orantes.
Oh, and to answer your question OP, the most knowledgeable fans are fans of the 70's... cause that was the golden era of tennis.
LOL,yeah I love fishing.
do you eat the fish or put it back in the water???
Tough to really say, which group has more knowledgeable posters.
Bodo, ~soso~, and blindism are all one poster.
Does this mean they only count as one? or three??
we also know veroniquem, the truth, and Nadal_Freak are all nadal haters that love to spew filth all over the boards (as do the first 3 I mentioned). However, which philosophical group do they belong to?? *********ism, or *******ism?
Lastly, we have gamesampras, cescfebreGASALOT, 380waterpistol, which have never seen sampras play, yet fill the boards with doo-doo about him.
To close, there is conquistadodohead, which is enough of a **** to count for about one hundred *******s.
Lot to think about here folks before casting your vote.
i wonder why you do not allow everyone to see who voted for what!
this one is easy: the nontards
I seriously lol`d so hard when i read this post, your a really funny guy:twisted: "cescfabreGASALOT and "380waterpistol"
That would be the common fan yes.
Sorry i tried to do that but didnt work...
Logical argument for Sampras fans being "best" answer in your poll.
ok then.. but you know that would make things much more clear no? am i right for once?
I would agree with the logic you are using here (more time watching tennis, means more exposure to the game, etc, etc.)
However, many of the Sampras fans here on this board, really fall into your assessment of the nadal fans (kids that just started watching tennis a few years ago). I could tell you gamesampras, cescfabregas, 380pistol, and some of the other sampras "die hards", as evidenced by thier posts, have never even seen the guy play other than youtube.
Guys like edberg505, breakpoint, myself, and many others are sampras fans, and have been for years, however, posters wouldn't know it, because we all feel Federer is simply a better player, and because of this, the aforementioned posters drown our posts with their ignorance, and simply call us "*******s".
Federer fans, fair? No no. Let's not forget there's more than just Magic who's a fan of Fed. The rest are goons. Hired to make other fans look stupid.
hmmmmm, so they are "goons", "hired to make other fans look stupid"??
Your feelings about "other fans" must not be too high, if "goons" make them look stupid, and are paid for their work.
Just because they've joined earlier then us doesn't mean they know more about tennis.
Some 'veterans' are plain trolls like NamRanger.
never alluded to, or said it did. However, like I said, one could tell from reading their posts, they have no clue what they are talikng about>>> knid of like you.
Only reason you call him a troll, is because he crushes you every time you two get into a debate. If you want to fix this problem, don't mess with him, or at minimum, make some sense when you post.
Yeah, u might be, for once
So according to you i am one of the good guys?
A goon like a thug. Not a goon like an idiot. Perhaps it means different things in different places. Chips/Crisps. Fries/Chips.
You just prove good Federer fans do exist. Hell, why not cheer for him? He's probably the greatest player tennis has ever seen. But it's nice to see that you don't need to be stuck up about being a Fed fan.
All fan groups have their share of nuts. Here is what IMO seems to be characteristic for the fanatics in each group;
- among Federer and Sampras fanatics: those who try to wax poetically about their games, many of whom have either never seen them play or have seen very little of them. Of course, they'll never admit this.
- Nadal: Similar, except many don't even try to put on a facade.
- Murray: On the surface I'd say this is a nice common balance, not too many trolls in this group (Then again that's probably because Federer and Nadal possess by far the most fans.) But oooooh boy do the trolls that do exist stand out. :twisted:
- Djokovic: some are guided by disdain for another player rather than adoration for Nole himself.
(not saying that the average poster of said-fans are like this, just the fanatics, which is what I'm alluding to.)
