Carlsen's opinion on Vladimir Kramnik

LionVanHalen

And what about game 23...

How can we ever know?

Poor and heroic Bronstein, up against the evil scheming Botvinnik... hmm?

And game 24? a tame draw, handshake and smiles?

Well is obvious yes... under direct order from Kremlin, Kruschev or Brezhnev or... somebody... poor Bronstein took a dive, and the dastardly Botvinnik is champion.

Probably KGB involved, maybe GRU as well...

And the swarthy Petrosian, from little Armenia... Kremlin want proper WC, russian yes? And the brooding Smyslov, pull the strings, obvious coercion yes?

And Kasparov... Azerbaijan yes? Kremlin want Karpov, proper russian champ... hmm?

Match abandon,  just as Kasparov get momentum... Kremlin orders, KGB yes?

And poor angelic RJ Fischer, so humble, so modest?

Obviously a joint plot, KGB, GRU, Kremlin... make him unstable, irrational... hero Karpov is champion?

And wasn't Shirov from Latvia... hmm?

And what about Leko, game 16? Drawcula not get draw?

And remember toiletgate? Where was that match held...

And... can i play with Madness?

What is an "opinion"?

Definition of opinion 1a : a view, judgment, or appraisal formed in the mind about a particular matter.

You don't have to like it.  You don't have to agree with it.  And as much as having an "opinion" now gets so many offended.  Its still just that...an opinion.

And we don't have to respect Carlsen, for voicing or even thinking such an opinion either.

I dont think not agreeing with someones opinion should mean you dont respect them.  Of course that would depend on the opinion.

If Carlsen wants to form such opinions about others, then he won't mind if we form such opinions, about him.

Mind games has always been around and always be.

It is a two sided coin. If you win you can use such tactics to hit the morale of your opponent, but if you loose its shows bad for you. 

Personally i prefer humble approach even if you are No. 1, but i can't overlook that such attitudes gives or takes advantages at certain situations.

Carlsen is mostly humble... if he gave no opinion people would decree him a robot.
