You know RD, you have no problem with rooting for the Houston Rockets whether or not if they win or lose, right? It's the same thing for the Kwan mentality. It's just someone's love for a skater. I think you're taking someone's love of an athlete get to you too much.
I understand that a lot of the fanaticism is over the top and I agree that many could tone it down when talking in debates that SHOULD be objective, but you clearly are exaggerating the amount of people doing that. I mean if you go to a Kwan gush thread and get sick with the amount of love they have for her, it's your own damn fault for going to that thread. It's no different from any other skater. I don't go to Sashafans or Irina Slutskaya Fan Forum just to tell them how over the top they're being.
I think you and many other people like lumping Kwan fans into that group just so you can constantly tell them how wrong they are.
