    Quite an imagination

    I agree its stupid but only because Ott isnt world champion yet. On the other hand it shows how much Estonian fans believe in it and how much they support.
    Have you seen estonian rally fb groups lately? If you read carefully my post I'm saying that some abnoxious behaviour has been spotted there lately. That describes the whole majority's mindset very well. And this sticker describes it as well. While I also want to believe that Ott will be crowned as a world champion one day (the sooner the sweeter) I'm far for believing that the fight is already half-over. And dissing Neuville (in fb forums) in every step of the way is also abnoxious. I like the 2019 edition Neuville a lot more vs 2018 and enjoying the 3-way fight. What a time to be a rallyfan!

    It's not an Estonian thing. I've noticed identical things with fan groups of Neuville since 2017. Any form of objectivity is missing from those fans, also respect towards other drivers is quite rare... I choose to avoid those kind of facebook discussions, fortunately this forum is a better place to follow the sport.

    Shame that one of those three muskeeters isn't in the mix aswell: Meeke, Latvala & Mikkelsen.

    No, im not following those groups at all, for the exact reasons you named. And like tommeke says, its not only a estonian thing.

    Please, if one retard misbehaves somewhere, he/she does not represent entire nation, fanclub or community. It's just one retard, no conclusions.

    Now, this sticker "#TnakJrveoja, WRCchamp2019" - I can see it as "declaration of hope" or dream or something like that. Usual fanboy stuff.

    And if people lose their arguments from "conversation", it turns to blind believing and religion. No point to have "conversation" with those...

    Personally I feel that Estonian rally audience is quite educated, they know a lot of background information etc. It's almoust impossible to ignore rally-related news, because those are everywhere.

    btw, it's a bit offtopic here already

    No, no, no. It's quite on-topic more than ever.

    Finnish rally fans are a different breed. Most people just keep mocking Latvala year after year.

    Maybe we're so accustomed to having multiple factory drivers year after year. It would be so different to look at the sport through one single driver.

    totally agreed. second year in a row on Rally Finland we try to cheer up your guys at the stages, that Latvala is on the podium, but all the answers are like: "meh, its worthless, he is a nobody now, Kalle and Teemu are good boys and the future!"

    its crazy how much people already are cheering and loving Kalle there, it feels like they are almost certain he will be a champion one day.
