    That era was sooooooo bad. Pubescent teenagers screaming obscenities and racial slurs, ugh.

    Fortunately however that seems to have absolutely died. I'm not sure when it happened, but whenever I fire up a competitive multiplayer game on Xbox now it's dead silence in chat.

    People forget players are human. Janssen told he was not wanted on transfer deadline day, do you want to go on loan to Brighton without any consideration for his personal circumstances. Players including Trippier wondering all week if they will get a game. It is ok for the likes of Kane who is guaranteed a starting place but Trippier fought to get the number 1 place with Walker and thought he had achieved it and then the club bought Aurier. He probably is very insecure at present wondering how many starts he will get. Then these idiots make these comments. It can only increase his insecurity which if picked could result in him playing under stress and having a poor game.

    That's because the victims of their abuse figured out how to use private chat which left them to cannibalize themselves.

    It's variable depending on the player, however. There are many, many top level athletes that feed off of negativity and use slights, perceived or real, to fuel their competitive fire.

    It's really the same in all walks of life - some need to be reassured and supported while others do their best under the pressure of proving others wrong. That's why management is so very complex and difficult...the HR staff of the world will tell you that you simply must treat everyone the same, but in general that's a path to mediocrity.

    I think the E-sports scene played a part as well.

    The rise of e-sports have lead to a clamping down on such behaviour. Effectiveness can be debated but it could be seen as a factor, at least in the way that some kids/people that game tend to take it more seriously in hope of going pro and thus have no time to chat shit

    I wouldn't abuse anyone on social media, whether they were a Spurs player or whatever. It's cowardly bullying, full stop.

    The only person I have ever told to eat shit on any social media is a British pro wrestler (of all things). I stand by it tho since he is a convicted wife beater who locked his x girlfriend in a room after beating her.

    Still thinks he can just walk around like nothing's happened so I'm fine throwing a curseword his way.

    The worse thing about it is there'll be a dozen that do that cause bad reputation for the majority. They're weasels, sad little men that have little pleasure in their own lives so take the piss out of others to make themselves feel bigger and better than they are. Children basically

    Fair one. I assume he's not the bloke in your avatar. If he is, you've got some fair sized balls on you...

    Nah. Hama (the man in my avatar) is too pure. His one flaw is when he forgets twitter is an open social media and he retweets BBW porn and his timeline freaks out.

    It honestly shocks me that anyone would write those things about Trippier, a player who has only ever given 100% for the club and has always been respectful to us.

    I can understand it more when a player has been disrespectful e.g. Rose. Still wouldn't do it myself though (and not just cause I don't know how to use Twitter)- not my style.

    ....and that's your opinion is it...?
    Pfft!
    :pochrolleyes:

    Agree wholeheartedly with the general consensus on here... social media is the 'vehichle' many people live by nowadays, and it's also the same vehichle that will see many of them crash and burn eventually.. .
    It's become a 'necessary' and unavoidable part of daily life now...

    I guess it has a bubble... and will most likely pop at SOME point...
    But I think (and this is my opinion) that most people would hope they could do without it... yet many will have a sneaky look occasionally "Just to check" the rest of society is being ruined by it, and satisfy themselves that they'd never become so dependant, over reliant or obsessed with such a medium!!

    BTW... what's "@ing" anyway??

    If people on here have twitters maybe write something nice on Trippier and Sissoko's pages please, just so they don't have to read a sea of stupid comments from idiots.
    These are 2 of our most dedicated players, Trippier never got down or spoke shit when he was 2nd to Walker, he got his head down worked hard and did a great job when given the chance.
    Yes he makes a mistake but who doesn't. How many pens does Messi miss.
    And Sissoko, haven't heard nothing bad from him, a player with a supposed bad attitude. Nothing but hard work and effort, he started preseason training on his own before the rest of the squad in the attempt to get himself fitter and more ready for this season, and you know he actually looks pretty decent.
    Certainly looks like he will offer us something different, that could alter games in our favor.
    Its nice to see him playing with confidence, it would be a terrible shame for any abusive comments to ruin that. This is without a doubt the best squad we have had in years I just don't understand why these mugs want to undermine that and throw abuse at people, its bizarre.

    ...erm, 'cos they're probably not ALL Spurs fans, and because this is the best squad we've had for years!
    a lot of people can't handle that, but will try anything within their power to try and undermine it!
