Ronaldo fans are worse and if you read between lines your comment almost confirms it. If you think they are still rabid in any capacity to this day imagine how they were before they got shot down with the WC victory.
Does it? Ronaldo fanboys are deluded and weirdos for sure but Messi fanboys take it to the next level in terms of nonsensical parasocial relationships.
You'll see Messi fanboys openly twerk for below average players like De Paul just because he 'protects' Messi. They'll hype up anyone who gives a positive statement about Messi. Hate on anyone who doesn't suck him off. They'll defend Antonella on social media as if it's their wife.
This kinda parasocial relationships are just cringeworthy and retarded.
You're a fan. You love Messi. You follow his games. Good for you. That's normal.
But picking fights on behalf of Messi apparently and forming opinions on famous Footballers based on what they think of Messi is so cringeworthy that it's unbelievable. Abnormal. Yikes.
