McLaughlin 'Haters'

From the point of view of a casual observer, after winning race1 in Tassie, I was surprised to hear Scott McLaughlin remark over the team radio.. "That will silence the Haters!"...Then, in his Flu affected victory speech, he made another remark regarding the "Haters". I always assumed Scotty was reasonably popular, both with drivers & fans alike, so my question is, who are the "Haters"? ...and what are they Hating ?

I think it is more a Holden versus Ford thing, I don't think there would be too many McLaughin haters out there, but I guess there could be a few. But more likely Holden versus Ford

I was told that it's a reference to negative people on social media and the abuse / troll behaviour that goes on there.

Not 100% sure but I think that he referenced them after one of the AGP races as well didn't he?

Maybe he should drive for Redbull then?

As for haters, it's all a load of immature BS. People read way too far into things, and warp reality into something completely different, to suit whatever agenda they're trying to push.

Some call it passion for the sport, while experts call it cyber bullying and a mental health disorder.

Unfortunately social media has given a voice to the w@nkers who hide behind anonymous screen names

With one forum I frequent there was a bloke from W.A. who was a full on troll (created heaps of multiple logins to troll people) so the forum owner banned him a number of times, the W.A. bloke cried and sooked to be allowed back, so the owner let him BUT only if he posted under his real name, which he now does, posts very different these days of course, the owner monitors his IP to ensure no multiple logins. You have 5 minutes to edit your post after that the owner reckons 'you post it, you own it" so will not edit, modify or delete posts. I am talking about an un-moderated motorsport forum BTW

Agreed that social media has given far too many a soap box from which to air their nonsense.

Back in the day, they'd just shout at the TV and be done with it.

I think any "haters" are just part of he territory for a modern sportsperson

Best to just forget about them, SM giving them airtime just gives them more ammo

It's called the tall poppy syndrome. The McLaughlin haters were most probably previously Whincup haters and before that Skaife haters, and after McLaughlin's time in the sun fades, will hate the next successful driver. The haters are just jealous keyboard warriors who probably never have and never will achieve much in their miserable lives.

Where is the like button for Jack65’s post!

Scotty, just drive the Mustang like you stole it- put it on pole and just win as many races as you can, and enjoy your driving and career!

Just flick the bird, after every victory to the keyboard warriors!

Funnily enough here is an article about sports people generally talking a little bit about this but also team experience generally.

Haters are suffering from tall poppy syndrome and trolls. They're the same people who bag out any driver who does well alongside the team and manufacturer. They're also bleating about the whole Foxtel/Pay wall thing too.

Personally I've stopped reading Speedcafe and almost want out from Facebook. The comment sections are more toxic than a radioactive dumping ground.

It doesn't matter if you are a Ford person, a Holden person, a Collingwood person, a Manly person, a Catholic, a bikie, a B&S chic, they are all 'clubs' and every single one of them believe their 'club' is the best and will roundly criticise anyone who doesn't believe in their 'club'. Then there a bigger clubs like 'motorsport', 'AFL', 'soccer', 'religion,' they all recruit to increase flock numbers, they are ALL just 'clubs' and 'club members', the sooner people understand that the better .

We used to belong to (ethnic) 'tribes' now we belong to 'clubs'

Same goes for political parties, which probably has a lot to do with creating the abysmal standard of politicians and legislation that we have.

It does seem to be the way of the world (or at least the way of the land of Oz).

It isn't helped by the constant regurgitating of clickbait news items reworded and designed to maintain the rage.
