Default Which fans are the hardest to argue with?

Or communicate. Maybe debate...Or discuss. Whatever you want to call it.

I've just visited some other NBA fora and it seems that certain 'team orientated' board have way moe silly discussion, one-sided arguments, strange dialogues.

To me, it seems that Toronto and Laker fans, in general, aen't that easy to have a good discussion with. Since this season the same feeling arose about a lot of Mavs fans.

I'm not bashing fanbases here, I'm generalizing to make clear what I mean.

I think it might be due to the age of most fans. The Lakers and Mavs seem popular among a lot of younger fans. Somewhat like the Pacers about 10 years ago. Younger people have more difficulties seeing the difference between facts and opinions.


Thoughts?

I am a raps fan and you are correct, there are a bunch of retarded raps fans running around shooting their mouthes off without putting their brain in gear...

this is the only board i ever post on, and i really don't know that i could generalize by team fans. certain individuals are awfully tough to try to get through to, and there are definitely lakers and mavs fans among them. the suns have some stubborn fans too. but us old-timers can be pretty set in our thinking and fairly inflexible when it comes to some subjects too. we just have a little more perspective because we can actually compare what we see now to our memories instead of just to stats and highlights. of course memories are fallable

I'd agree with the statements about Raptors fans. Just look at all the ROY arguments around here.

I don't know about Raps fans being difficult.

I'm a big fan and I readily admit their strengths and weakness.
Kwajo and Qwigybo(sp) also seem to be rational and reasonable sports fans.

Obviously any fan is going to take up their teams cause somewhat, but most of the Raps fan on here seem to do it civilly and maturely, without resorting to ad hominem attacks and baseless statements.

Raptors fans and they take pride in this kind of topic also. Not ALL Raps fans, there are some you can discuss, debate, argue and even smack a lil that are cool. They've consistently been the most unreasonable fans to debate with since I've joined this board. And hate to lump them all in together, as i said there are some that arent of this mold. Qwi and Kwajo. But most are. I bet Ranger is over at realgm incorporating scriptures in a Raps debate.

yup, Lakers and Toronto fans. Strangely, as of late I've been feeling the same way about Nuggets fans.

Too many of them don't seem to realize what position they're in, and most all of them think the Nuggets are better than they are. It's unfortunate, as they weren't this way before (in my eyes).

I suppose it’s counter productive to argue bitterly about how reasonable my fan base is, but I do think the Raps are getting an unfair label here. I can understand a new Jersey fan seeing it that way: since we have an eternal and wholly justified contempt for Vince Carter, but in general I would say it’s the same demographic spread as any other fan group…part a.sshole/ part respectful human being.

Easily Laker fans. Within this board and my friends because:

1. They have this sense of entitlement. They've won many titles and feel that the rest of society still owes them for it.

2. They put Kobe on an unreachable pedestal. They don't say anything bad about him.

3. They hate on other swing players like Wade, Lebron, T-Mac, Carter...etc.

4a. They hype their team too much for the first half of the season, only to be shown the truth during the second half.

4b. As they limp into the playoffs they believe this "we're the dangerous team nodody wants to play" bullsh!t.

5. Ridiculous trade scenarios like KG for Kwame, Sasha, and draft picks.

I completely agree with the thread starter, Mavs and Laker fans are the silliest to argue with. Dudes always bring up ancient history like "We Beat you guys last year" & "Kobe has 3 championships, how many does your favorite player have?"... Like if any of that is relevant now, I cant wait till the Mavs and Lakers get smacked in the playoffs so that we wouldnt have to hear from them anymore!!

Laker fans hands down, not saying all but most. They always bring up the past, like it makes a difference on what this season will bring, along with over rated their players. I've heard some say Kwame is the best post defender in the entire league, or Odom is a top SF in the league.

Maverick fans.

Laker fans are all depressed now, but they'll go on a 3 game win streak and they'll be reminding us all that the Lakers owned the NBA in the 80s.
