peruytu said:Fan is short for fanatic. People abuse this word way too much, especially here in the United States.
Some people like Deisler (not the player) from the Bayern thread that calls himself a true fan. I have to ask my fellow american friend, how can he be a true fan when he knows nothing, first about futbol/soccer/football, and has no connection with the club whatsoever. It's people like him that abuse the word way too much and go out of their way to prove something is isnt and will never be real. He is a pitiful boy, thats for sure... but I do respect some people that do LOVE clubs that are in no way connected to them, because they've shown and proven that they are true fans. But sometimes its hard to distinguish the fanbois and the true fans.
As for myself i'm only a fan of ONE club, and thats Universitario of Peru, I will live and die for this club. I like other clubs like Barcelona and Inter, but I couldn't call myself a true fans of these two clubs since I have no emotional attachment to either club. Its not like when Universitario loses, I literaly get depressed... but when Barcelona and Inter lose, its ok, its just another game. Same can be said for clubs where Peruvian players play in like PSV and Bayern. I like these two clubs for only one reason, because of Peruvian players. I'm not going to sit here and try to make a fool out of myself, like Deisler has in the past, and try to prove something that can never be proven. Once Farfan and Pizarro leave their respective club, I will probably not bother with the clubs anymore as I will be following their current clubs. But what I dont understand is why cant people understand this? Why do they feel offended that i'm not a "true fan" of these clubs, especially when they're not either. Its just silly sometimes to try to argue with kids... but sometimes you have to just to stimulate their brain (Deisler needs alot more help though).
Another thing I can't understand is punks who support other NTs rather than their own, like pitiful Deisler, who is an American but would rather support Germany. Thats just pitiful.. truly truly sad. As far as NT's go, for me, Peru is first above everything, then comes the US NT. I've followed the US NT throughout the qualifying games traveling to Columbus OH, Hartfor CT, Foxborough MA & Washington DC to support the US NT. That can be said, is a TRUE fan.
In the end, I piss on pitiful boys like Deisler who will never have a life, because he depends on this site for his lifelyhood.. and the fact that he's a fake futbol/soccer/football fan in general pretty much says he's an absolute idiot.
