I genuinely can't see how someone can call themselves a fan of anything when they're so negative about it and only look for the bad stuff. Where's the enjoyment in that?

Sport is all about emotional investment, I don't understand how a person who claims to love their team couldn't be emotionally invested personally.Hard not to get emotionally invested I guess.
i kind of agree with this.The injuries are as big if not a bigger concern.
Quite amazing how many we have had in the last 18 months.
Must be reasons beyond bad luck.
It's borderline propaganda. Should work for a tabloid.You just have an ulterior motive to drag the club down at any opportunity. Most decent fans see through this and can see what a negative boring twat you are.
Well boys, so what you need to do, although Case is too polite to say it, is fucking stick some money in the pot!.....everytime i try to go on this website on my iphone it tells me i have won a iphone and i have 5 free spins, cant get onto the site so wondering myself whats going on behind the scenes! ochfacepalm:
You are entitled to doing it as you prefer, but it did interest me.I am a teacher, not that it should make any difference whatsoever and there is a reason I use a forum and not social media for this sort of discussion, if I wanted short form discussion I would be on Twitter.
I am also aware that I could be more concise but most of the posts that aren't concise involve me arguing with the same 6-7 posters about them calling other posters negative for having a different opinion to them.
probably about saving energy (or having energy) for things you really can effect (affect?)... which in reality, for most, would likely only be things in direct contact with ourselves, job, family , friends... i'm observin from afar so dont have your level of emotional and financial investment, so easier for me to redirect my energy eslewhwere, saying that, the game wouldnt be near as good without the hieghtened passion from the fans....You can't see how someone can call themselves a fan of something when they show concern about the thing they love?

How is me showing concerns for one of our best players being dropped and two of our best players running out of contract me "looking for the bad stuff" or not being a fan?
Surely that means I actually give a shit about the state of our team or I wouldn't even be wasting my energy writing about it?
I was being called "negative" for worrying about us possibly not signing anybody as well and was being told signings don't matter and yet here we are, days after Ndombele, a new signing, broke the deadlock against Villa, I would say that signing was pretty important...
I take plenty of enjoyment out of watching spurs, I love watching us play, win lose or draw, just because I take enjoyment from it doesn't mean I should shut off my critical thinking abilities and ignore any concerns I have.
