    I want Sami and Rafe together in a loving relationship without Ej always interfering.
    I would love for Sydney to be Ej and Nicoles that way it should of always been.
    Danloe is another great couple. Along with Bo and Hope.
    These are the couple I would love to see in a loving family relationship
    SAFE,BOPE and Danloe my 3 favorite couples.
    Ej and Sami should never be a couple. People he lie and manipulate and do other things should be a couple. There is no love there just people who hurt each other all the time. That isn’t love that is obsession.Ej is totally obsessed with Sami and can’t’ let her be happy. He was brought to town to make Sami’s life a living hell and he has done exactly that. He really needs to move on and find someone else. So sick of this stupid stuff. Sami does need to pay for what she did.
    I know there are others out there that think just because Sami has kids with Ej they need to be together. but she has kids with Lucas to and there not a couple. Just because you have kids with a person don’t mean you have to be a couple. Ej only thinks of him self. Ej is a true Dimera evil person. just like his dad. They need to keep him that way. That is the only way I can tolerate to even seen him on Days.
    Sami wouldn’t even have johnny if it wasn’t for the rape. Which then then tells me she would of never ended up with Sydney when Lucas went to jail for shooting Ej. Sami would of never married Ej if it was for the stupid vendette against the Brady’s. Sami was wanting to protect her family from the idiot dimera’s exspecially after John got hit by the car and died.
    Sami deserves to be happy with the man she loves and wants a family with and that is Rafe!!!!!!!

    I have watched a lot of soaps for a lot of years and few couples can compare with Ejami or even come close and they haven’t even officially been a couple yet. Imagine how good it would be if they were. Now that’s what I want to see, the reason I came back to days, and what I have been waiting for – Ejami. There is unlimited sl potential and off the charts chemistry with Sami and EJ.

    Favorite Flawed Heroine: Kristian Alfonso (Hope Brady)

    Sami is not a heroine and never has been and never will be! I love her…but that’s like a joke to actual heroines…lol!!! Nah, Sami doesn’t belong there AT ALL!!! She’s done so much stuff and so much just nasty and horrible stuff, she’s my very ultimate favorite, and that’s like a disgrace and joke to Sami fans to even have her there. LOL!!! Girl, is no heroine at all! She’s definitely a “flawed” baddie way more than heroine! Heroine and Sami doesn’t even go in the same sentence. And that’s one thing that irritates Alison Sweeney and that she hates…she’s always said that she can’t stand and hates when people say to her or call Sami “good” just in general, because she said that’s not who Sami is and that’s not what she built Sami to be as the actress playing her, she said that she didn’t build Sami to be good in anyway like that at all, and that she can not stand to hear that about her character because she’s not good. And I love that she said that! Because Sami isn’t! She’s a twisted and flawed BADDIE!!

    EJ is more of a flawed hero than Sami is! LOL!!! SO, HOPE BRADY all the way for favorite flawed heroine! (and Chloe too!)

    FAVORITE DUO: DEFINITELY SUPERCOUPLE EJ & SAMI!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! EJAMI!!!!!!!!! (James Scott & Alison Sweeney!!!!!!!!)

    I agree and don’t understand why they keep trying to make us believe that Sami is a heroine and Rafe a hero it’s like trying to stick a square peg into a round hole it just doesn’t fit. How do you call someone who won awards for best villian a heroine? LOL!

    I agree Sami is a grey character character (and it is rare on soaps) she is an “anti-heroine” like Jack Deveraux was an “anti-hero” they are baddies with deep down a good heart but certainly not “heroes” like soaps want to also have ..and IMO because of their ulti-dimensioned persona they are much more interesting and fascinating.
    However if Sami has to mature a bit (i agree with that) give her a career, some girlfriends and above all show us ON SCREEN that she loves her kids, more Sami scenes with her children otherwise we can’t buy her speech about how she loves them..we have to see it ! Not hard TPTB listen for once.

    Love Love Love Crystal Chappell. I started back watching DOOL because of her return. Seeing her and Peter Reckell together again has definitely ignited my CarBo love. After all those years apart, Bo & Carly still have such amazing chemistry. They are what I’ve always considered a “real” supercouple should be like.They compliment each other so perfectly. BTW I’m glad I’m not the only one that thought Crystal looked like Madonna especially during the whole Princess and the Pea fantasy. That’s when I first noticed it.

    lol IMO Sami Brady is not, was never a heroine. But that’s just me.

    I voted for Carly. Now that’s a flawed heroine who does not look down on other people. Human.

    My 2nd favorite heroine on that list would be Hope. Her holier than thou attitude ever since she first debuted, however, is what’s keeping her from being 1st on the list, for me.

    -I agree, I don’t see Sami as a heroine at all. She’s a ‘badass” just like EJ; they’re mirror images of each other. The storylines of the spring, summer and fall 2010 have been really difficult to digest, but I haven’t given up hope on these 2. That must mean something, right?! So: EJami all the way!

    -Also voted for Carly in the “heroine” department. I rather like her.

    Of course that means that J&A are my absolute fave couple. They have such great chemistry and history together, I just hope the writers of Days, will realize this soon, and give them the airtime and storyline they sooooooooo deserve. Bringing on some of their kids would be great, too.

    Humor what humor in this pairing ?
    It is the problem actually with them, they have no internal conflict, there is nothing “special” there is no humor no witty banter, Sami behaves totally out of character in this pairing. If they wanted a girl for a character like Rafe they could have bring back Carrie Brady but Sami is not the character we were many to love or love to hate with this new couple. And when you are a Sami fan first you can’t root for a cutie cooker couple like that, it is simple to understand.

    Reply

    Judy T replied

    Fortunately, I disagree….we are all entitled to our opinons. Sami & Rafe are opposites and that is why they work …. they complete one another …. with them there is pure chemistry and passion……. at one point Sami & EJ went well with the story, but her character is no longer that person…. she has the same rashness and illogical mindset, but she has endured much and the death of a child scars the soul….she has matured. Rafe understands her and loves her unconditionally. EJ may “love” her, but he had to lie and manipulate her to make her love him….she cared for the man she thought he was, not who he truly is….that’s not pure love. Sure, back when EJ & Sami were on the screen three years or so ago, their “love” scenes were intense….but Sami had never known what real love was…she was always searching for it. Now she has it with Rafe who loves her totally…..EJ needs a new love interest to expand his character….Sami weakens him…this was proven at the wedding scenes with her & EJ….he needs a partner who will work with him, either for good or ill……Sami can no longer do that…Rafe will always be in her heart now and there are too many deep scars between her & EJ to ever have a happy relationship……….sadly, EJ’s core is too twisted and corrupted by his father to change. EJ & Sami can’t go back to what it was back in the day…. Sami & Rafe have also been scared by all that has occured in the past year and a half….we may not like it, but that’s the story…..it’s a soap opera and you suffer through it…….I have watch Days since the first day it came on the air, and I can tell you there have been many disappointments, but good times too. They will tease you, anger you, then draw you back in……..I know, I’ve been doing it for 45 years! Enjoy!

    Liesbeth replied

    Hello, Judy T. You’re right, everyone’s entitled to their opinions regarding who belongs with whom, which (non) couple has more chemistry and so on. Personally, I don’t feel Safe- AT ALL- never have and never will.

    True, they are opposites and yes, Sami loves Rafe (at the moment) but that doesn’t mean they belong together or that they’re even soulmates. Rafe belongs in a long list of men that Sami idolizes and looks up to (eg Austin and Lucas). Due to her unstable childhood with her parents magically dropping in and out of her life, it’s only logical that she wants stability, safety and a “hero” who protects her. Rafe and her life with him represents all those things. EJ doesn’t fit that profile because (a) he’s a Dimera (ie “the enemy”) and (b) he’s done so many nasty things to her. And, as you’ve mentioned, their history has scarred them both. But Sami is NOT a damsel in distress and she gave as good as she got (if that’s the right expression. Please bear with me, English isn’t my mother tongue and not my second language either. But I digress…).

    Sami has put all of these events that led up to the Sydnapping and EJ’s shooting in motion-if she hadn’t lied none of these things would have happend. Period. She has NOT “matured” as you put it: I still see the bad, selfish Sami willing to do anything to cover her own ass (including using her own son). She may attempt to justify her actions all she likes but what she did was WRONG. I understand her motivations for doing what she did BUT shooting a unconscious, heartbroken, drunk in the head is COLD. It was attempted murder for christ sake! And it’s just as bad as what EJ did to her regarding Sydney, probably even worse. In my opinion, EJ and Sami are equally crappy parents, putting their needs and feelings before their children’s. Eg: EJ using his kids as weapons against his ex and Sami constantly dumping them off at their great grand-mother to boink her bf. But, they do love them. Anyway, even if EJ is “evil” and even IF he wanted to take his kids from her (which is doubtful, since he was incapable of doing anything is his inebriated state) she still needs to take responsibility for what she did. That is what a “mature” person does-look at Hope, for instance, and she also has a young daughter depending on her. Also, I wonder how Rafe will react once he finds out that Arianna has proof of Sami’s guilt? And that’s what ultimately led up to her death. Her lies and concealment of that fact from him is yet another example of Safe’s not so “open and honest” relationship. Moreover, Sami has actually “corrupted” Rafe-she’s a negative influence on him and his life. Therefore, I really don’t see them as “the endgame”: it’s only a matter of time before Sami, the black widow, consumes him and moves on to her next victim.

    What I like about the romantic potential between EJ and Sami is the fact that he’s a bad boy and she’s a bad girl. These two characters falling for each other is an ORIGINAL concept; whereas the bad girl falling for a good guy and vice versa has been done tenfold. DOOL also needs to modernize and drop these old-fashioned clichés of good vs evil. It’s far more entertaining to have well developed characters who are capable of both positive and nefarious deeds; NOT these cartoonish individuals that the audience can’t relate to. Everyone has good and bad in them. If they continue in this way, they might as well have them all wearing costumes….Hahaha! Moreover, if Safe is such a great couple than why don’t they have a story of their own, WITHOUT EJ having to prop them up at every twist and turn? Well, I know: because they really aren’t compatible and have no substance to them whatsoever. Remove EJ and what have you got? A whole lot of nothingness…

    In conclusion, someone can’t manipulate or make someone else love him or her. I believe that she does love EJ, it’s just buried very deeply beneath all that righteous indignation. Or at least she did, back in 2008 and 2009 before the EJole wedding. Hell, Lucas kept mentioning it too and it wasn’t out of jealousy or spite: he had moved on with Chloe. And I might add that EJ wasn’t manipulating or lying to her at all when those scenes aired… There are various examples that I can cite to back that up. But, don’t worry, I won’t because, otherwise this comment will be even more tedious than it already is, for those like yourself that disagree with me. Also, I don’t believe Sami “weakens” EJ- he screws up a lot but he does profoundly, unconditionally and passionately love Sami, far more than Rafe does in my humble opinion. She’s his world, his universe-everything really. And Sami from her part, knows exactly who EJ is, she just needs to accept him wholeheartedly and completely, flaws and all-because she’s just the same. As for chemistry Ejami has it abundance (Safe, on the other hand, doesn’t-they’re a BORING, lifeless, and a run-of-the-mill couple): I discovered a music video of these 2 by accident and now here I am watching DOOL-something I never imagined myself doing, since I don’t waste my time with soap operas. They are UNIQUE and evocative-they generate buzz regardless whether one is a fan of this pairing or not. In a few years time, when this soap has run it’s course they will always be remembered, for the controversy surrounding this pairing alone. Can you honestly say the same for Safe? Nope!

    I totally agree with your wonderful comments!!

    I discovered Ejami in a similiar way too, and their wonderful chemistry captured me totally and now I find myself watching this soap daily because of these crazy two passionate compelling characters. I agree Sami does not weaken Ej at all, they are both passionate and temperamental so she can give as good as she gets. That is something I love seeing with these two, and the clever banter they share is so funny and entertaining. I love how Sami can keep pushing Ej until he is ready to blow up in fury and yet she still continues to push him not scared of his temper at all, but the funny thing is when she pushes him he actually calms down again. I love how she does that, it makes them more equal. Sami on the other hand spits out before she thinks sometimes, and certainly says some nasty things and gets out her claws from time to time. However, because Ej is self assured and demands respect he always keeps her in line and is able to handle her like no other man ever has. He brings out her confidence and passionate spunk like no other. I think that is what they need to look at when putting characters together, what are their strengths and weaknesses, their personality traits etc. Instead of just putting them together for sake of story plotting. When they do this it takes out all that romance we should feel and leaves us with a feeling distsatistfcation as a viewer. I like Sami as the anti-brady and Ej as the anti-hero perfectly flawed and so passionate and powerful. My favourite grey couple Ejami!!

    I wish you had Ej and Nicole up there, Nicole cares way more for Sydney then Sami ever could. Sami is always dropping off her ‘daughter’ with Grouchy Gramma Caroline. That’s not mothering. Nicole had what it takes to be a Dimera wife. She over looked what Ej did, Sami just wanted to change him. Bring back Ejole and Sydole, and bring back the best evil power couple in daytrime. Nicole should definetly be Sydney’s mom and Ej’s wife, never, ever Sami. My thoughts, save the bashing for else where please. It will make anyone who trashes my thoughts look really bad.

    Reply

    Tara replied

    Naaaa, I like Nicole, and don’t ever want to see her with EJ ever again! She shouldn’t have been there with him the first time either. And Sydney has nothing to do with her, I want Nicole so far out of that as a Nicole fan. I care about her character, and that is just all the wrong place and life for her. She needs to be able to move forward and move on, not always have to constantly go backwards to a life and people that are not meant for her and have nothing to do with her. EJ can’t stand her and hates her, he even hated and couldn’t stand her when they were together. Dude doesn’t like her at all. Just likes to use her, and if she offers and allows that, he’s going to do it. Then trash and dump her. A lot of Nicole fans don’t want her in that anymore ever again or at all! Neither her nor EJ deserves that. That was horrible and terrible for the both of them. Just Sami’s daughter Sydney alone is not going to do it and no reason for either one of them EJ or Nicole to be there with one another. It was horrible!

    Nicole definitely belongs with Brady or Eric Brady! That’s for her. And Nicole isn’t really evil, she’s just often very stupid at times, but not really evil and not a good fit or right fit at all with the DiMeras. When she was there it looked stupid and just so odd, because that’s just not Nicole or her history or persona at all. But definitely is Sami’s. Sami was always built up for and down right bad and evil a lot of times, the perfect DiMera and always belonged with that family. Nicole is more of the Kiriakis empire type and definitely the thorne in the Brady & Black family sides by being with either Eric Brady or Brady. Now, the DiMera part where Nicole fits in is through Brady as Brady. As Brady is actually Brady Black Kiriakis-DiMera. Brady’s mother is Victor’s daughter & Brady’s father is John Black, who is Santo DiMera & Colleen Brady’s son [from EJ & Sami's past life together in Ireland.] Brady’s father John and Stefano have the same dad [Santo DiMera]. Stefano is Brady’s uncle. And EJ is Brady’s cousin and step-brother (through EJ’s marriage to Sami before.) So with Brady, Nicole gets both Kiriakis and DiMera as Brady is both. And with Eric Brady, who is the heir to the Brady family, Nicole gets that as well. (Much better than her being with EJ. EJ doesn’t like and can’t stand her. Nicole doesn’t need that in her life. Sami is a much better DiMera fit and wife for the the family and EJ. It’s not always about being evil, as that’s not EJ, its about just being you the character. And evil is not EJ or Nicole. Sami is more evil than the both of them and when you know her history and with the things she’s done recently…she definitely is! LOL!!!

    And Sami has never wanted to change EJ, she makes EJ want to be a better man, a man loves that with their women. It’s not about change, she knows exactly who EJ is and what he does or can do and what he’s capable of, because she’s done it too and wrote the book for it all as well. And she told the audience herself that she’s very much aware of it and knows and even joked around with him about. Sami used to work for the DiMera’s. Sami was a DiMera. And was always with them and involved with them, even before EJ. She wants EJ to be EJ, not his father, she just wants EJ to be his own man, with his own family and life, not his father’s. Just like EJ wants Sami to just be Sami and just be a woman and mother, not live her life by other’s rules and regulations for her. Not live her hypocritical families life who constantly treated and did her wrong before, but to just be her.

    It’s not about changing a man or just accepting them, deep down that’s not what EJ wants to be, he doesn’t want to be evil, and he doesn’t want to do those things, and he doesn’t want a woman to bow down to his every beck & call and just accept things. He wants his woman to tell him when he’s wrong and that he can do much better in life, and that he is his own man with his own family, and his father doesn’t have a say in any of that when its his life and his family. EJ wants and loves a challenge and loves and wants Sami. So, I don’t want Nicole anywhere around that anymore, that just isn’t for her. And I don’t want her just there to just accept and beck and call at EJ’s and Stefano’s every move and word. That’s so weak and pathetic. Anna doesn’t do that, Lexi doesn’t do that, and neither does Sami. Those are DiMera women.

    Now, Nicole does that with her ex-husband Victor and the Kiriakis’ she doesn’t beck and call at his every word and command and Brady’s either. Much better fit for Nicole. Much better life for her. Brady and Eric truly love and care about her. EJ could care less! If Nicole drowned in the Salem river, got ran over, or died…EJ wouldn’t give two cents nor would he care at all. He would probably cheer over Nicole’s dead body and have a cheerleading squad come and hold a pep rally over her body to celebrate her death. That’s how EJ looks at Nikki and thinks of her…he doesn’t and doesn’t care. Nicole doesn’t need someone like that, EJ doesn’t need a woman like her, and neither one of them are good at all for the other. They bring out the absolute worst in each other and something neither one of them wants to be. Nicole wasn’t really happy there either, it was way too much pressure and all about Sami & EJ and their family, and all about Nikki trying to lie and cover up such a disgusting thing that she did. I don’t want Nicole going through life just obsessed with Sydney. Nicole doesn’t deserve that and that’s not fair to her or to Sydney. It’s none of Nicole’s business or place. Like it or not Sami’s her mother and Sami pushed her out and carried her and she does love her daughter. People just need to let Sami be with her family and stop trying to pin her up against every man in Salem. She has a family and people should just let her be and start her life with her family instead of this man this and this man that. And the same with Nikki…what kind of life is she going have there in the DiMera household. It would be completely horrible for her there. As opposed to the great life, love, and family that she could have with both Brady and Eric. Two men that actually love and care about her. It would be a disgrace and horrible for Nicole to go backwards like that, when she could have a great life, love, and family with Brady and Eric. What’s much better for her and meant for her.

    I just can’t stand it when people are ready to serve Nicole up for more crap and just toss her at the DiMeras and EJ. For what? Why? She doesn’t deserve that and or be there or with any of that. They don’t like her and don’t even want her around, and would kill her if they could and really wanted to deal with it. She doesn’t deserve that kind of life at all. And people should just leave her alone, and stop trying to pawn her off on EJ and the DiMeras. That poor woman would be miserable there. People need to just leave Nicole alone and let her move on with HER life. Not trap her down with the DiMeras and EJ and just throw her under the bus like that just to beck and call at their every move and command. Nicole’s life is much better without them in it and with Brady and Eric in her life. Much, much better for her and a chance at a real life, love, and family with Brady and Eric and to be a great and much better woman, not a just settling one and beck and calling one!

    Nah she just never wanted him at all unless her “other” options were available. So yeah she never wanted to change him, she just didn’t want him.

    Liesbeth replied

    I’m sorry but I have to disagree with you regarding EJole.

    First of all, EJ was never in love with Nicole. He loved her, yes, but it was on a superficial and a conditional basis: he only married her because he thought she was the mother of his child. He even admitted as much on the plane when they were on the way to Paris. But once her deception came to light he dropped her like a hot potato and has hated her ever since. Moreover, Nicole was literally his rebound: he jumped into a relationship with her after Sami kept pushing him away. She was also a substitute: Nicole is very similar to Sami (which EJ has mentioned a number of times), and due to the fact that she was pregnant, it gave EJ a second chance at having that family that he craved so much.He was grateful to Nicole for giving him the stability and love (as Lexie perceptively pointed out to him at Grace’s grave)-something he couldn’t get with Sami. Simply put, he settled for her and his love for her was an extension of his love for Sydney. Once the illusion of “the happy family” crumbled, his affection for Nicole evaporated very rapidly. Sami, on the other hand, he never stopped loving her even when he “hated” her. Even now, when he knows that she put a bullet in his brain for christ sake, he STILL loves her. It may come off as a tad bit pathetic on his part, but that has always been the one constant in his life since his debut on DOOL. One can’t help who one loves.

    Second, Nicole is no match for a powerhouse like EJ. Yes, she supported him, accepted him and stood by him BUT EJ needs someone who can challenge him, and allow him to become his “own man”-not Stefano’s clone. Nicole is NOT the woman who can do that. During the EJole era, EJ became more and more “evil” and was someone he didn’t want to be (as Sami pointed out to him in the park when they were discussing Johnny’s custody). EJ is a bad boy, true, but he also has good in him and unlike Sami, Nicole only brought out the worst in him. She was also pathetic, needy, clingy and weak when she was with EJ. EJ was very abusive towards Nicole (and still is): manhandling her, choking her, sending her to the hospital, etc…. In addition, the only time that EJ ever showed any real affection for her was when (a) Sami kept rejecting him & pushing him away (b) Sami was out of the picture, staying at the Safe house (no pun intended) (c) during her pregnancy and (d) when he was pissed off at Sami regarding the whole Grace debacle. What it all comes down to is this: he was really just reacting to Sami and her behaviour towards him. That, and as I have mentioned before, his desire for a loving home.The fact that he kept putting off the EJole “honeymoon” spoke volumes as well.

    Third, like yourself and Tara, I rather like Nicole now-provided that she stays away from EJ. She deserves better than him: she deserves someone who can truly love her and appreciate her for who she is. Brady, Eric or someone new are far better options than EJ: Brady was always there for during her miscarriage and helped her out in her time of need. Right now, he’s a bit of an ass but she did hurt him. And as for Eric, according AZ herself he is the “love of Nicole’s life”.

    To conclude, Nicole isn’t EJ’s “equal” and their history has proven that they aren’t compatible. Sami is a far superior match for him: she calls him out on his shit and almost everything he has done, she has done herself. They are truly mirror images of each other. The most recent scenes prove that. As for Sami not loving EJ-yes, she hates his guts right now and is “in love” with Rafe. But considering what he put her through it’s perfectly understandable. EJ always seems to be Sami’s second choice but that has a lot to do with her unstable upbringing, her need for a hero figure (which EJ obviously isn’t-quite the contrary in fact), her need to be accepted by her family and her desire to be “good”.

    Sorry for the long post, but that is just how I feel about EJole. For the record, this isn’t intended to “bash” your opinion.

    When you mean she calls him out, does shooting him in the head count? Cause the Sami I’ve seen the past 4 years is a former shell of herself, a weakling.

    Liesbeth replied

    PS: I do agree with you on one point though: Nicole is a much better mother to Sydney than Sami is. However, Sydney IS Sami’s daughter and despite all her faults, Sami does love her. Sydney belongs with her mother and Nicole isn’t that-there’s no way she popped out a baby while switching Grace & Sydney. Perhaps her child is alive, but it sure as hell isn’t Sydney.

    I agree with you a 100% on Nicole. Nicole does have everything to make the perfect Diemra wife. Her and Ej were perfect for one another. I loved it when it was Ej,Nicole with Sydney. Sami is hardly ever with Sydney. In the two years of her life. So I sure hope they are going to make Sydney Ej and Nicoles. I would love for somehow since Nicole was far enough along to have a premi and baker decided to keep the baby and tell her she misscarried. Ejole have what it takes to make it as a true family. They always have the same goals. Just like SAFE does. That is when the ratings were at the highest when it was Ejole and SAFE

    Michael, just wanted to say have enjoyed your inteviews with the cast of Days.

    Not sure I would give the results to this poll. If you can enter a vote more than once in a day or week it is going to be spammed and looking at your results, I think this is what has happened.
    I agree with Maej26….could you not find a loving picture of EJ and Sami? Who ever put those together looks a little biased. Just Sayin.

    Michael Fairman replied

    Hi AnnDee:
    First, as always thank you for your comments.
    I wanted to first let you know, and many others who have echoed your sentiments, a few things. We have changed the image of Ejami in the Favorite Duo because I want it to be clear that I hear you, and that if you think this is somehow indicating by the choice of image that On-Air On-Soaps is anti-Ejami or swaying the vote or showing this site is biased against Ejami, James Scott, etc, that can be taken out of the equation.

    In addition, I want to point out to all Ejami fans, that I have brought you more James Scott interviews, and am happy to do so on this site than any other online property. I have also consistently and happily wanted to give you a great place to share with others your incredible well-thought out and passionate comments on all things EJami, you are truly a remarkable bunch!

    That being said, I don’t think it would make any sense that I, or my site are anti-Ejami..James Scott or Alison Sweeney.

    If you are meaning by “Spammed results” did someone find a way to beat/cheat the system’, I am sure a compentant hacker could do so, but is that what is really going on here? I thought it was odd that as vocal as Ejami fans are and how often they place posts on this site, they are not leading the duo right know, but could it be that perhaps, Danloe and Bo and Carly fans got their entire fanbases mobilized to vote, and that is the true vote? I am just putting that out there as one option.

    We are looking into anything that could possibly technically be going on. But, we are going to continue to show the voting results throughout the process as that is the fun of it. And if we can’t all have fun with this, it really takes the purpose of why I created it away. I really wanted to celebrate the 45th Annniversay with you the soapers, and then in turn with the actors letting them know your thoughts through the vote come this weekend.

    You may Vote one time only in each category from the same computer is the way this is set up. So if people are beating that system, what I mentioned above, that is the way we set up the voting process to hope for a fair vote.

    I hope this can put to rest some feelings about something Anti-Ejami going on from On-Air On-Soaps.

    Best always,
    Michael

    lovingit replied

    MIchael,
    Just want to say thanks for doing these polls and for all your great interviews of the DOOL cast. Of all the interviews I’ve read I definately have enjoyed yours the most.

    To AnnDee you may want to consider the current sl and frustration and disgust many, including Ejami fans, are feeling at this time especially with Sami. From the many comments I have read on many different boards I would bet that is a contributing factor in these poll results. And Carbo and Bope have huge followings and are currently in the midst of huge campaigns for their couples. So for the most part this poll makes perfect sense to me.

    Hopefully Michael will share some of the comments as well as the poll results because despite everything they have done to them Ejami is still one of the most sought after couples.

    Melissa replied

    Polls are definitely false here. I dont know anyone that I speak to that does not want Bo and Hope together. They are the number 1 super couple of all time. Carly and Bo have no chemistry and not nearly as much history as Bo and Hope…Bo even loved Billie more then he loved Carly… we havent even heard him mention her in the last 15 years. All those times when Billie was around you always heard him say things like she was the only other woman he loved in life besides hope. You never heard him say anything at all about Carly. And now Bope fans are slapped in the face with this Carly storyline. I will watch again when Bo and Hope arfe back together.

So many of us were watching to see if Daniel would be the babydaddy and then tuned out after the paternity reveal with Melanie because it = Danloe is doomed, Darly is coming etc. Who wants to watch your favorite couple be destroyed? I came back to Days because I saw a Danloe scene in Dec 2008 and I won’t watch this show without Danloe. In scenes together, not constantly apart. Thanks again.

    EJ did not Rape Sami. He refused to help Lucas unless she had sex with him. Also remember Sami drugged Austin and had sex with him. Her husband Lucas actually put a bullet in EJ. Sami blackmailed Lexie to tell her own sister that if she had a baby the baby would be born with birth defects, she caused Phillip to lose his leg. She lied about Lucas causing him to lose custody of Will. Sami is every bit as evil as EJ and she was this way long before he came to town.

    She did not have to have sex with EJ, he just wasn’t going to save Lucas if she didn’t Sami would have had to take a chance that she could have found someone else in that horrible blizzard to save Lucas. Sami did one of her very few selfless acts, she loved Lucas so much that she was willing to sleep with a man she did not want to sleep with in order to save Lucas’ life. It was wrong of EJ to not be willing to save Lucas’s life without putting conditions on it, but no more wrong than lets say shooting an unconscious man in the head!!!

The writers have really screwed this up they shouldve killed off Hope again if they wanted Carly back in the picture with Bo. That is the only time Bo makes sense with anyone else is when Hope is “not alive”. We are all entitled to our opinion so I am not bashing yours but I will not watch with Bo and Hope not toghether.

I love Chloe as I love almost all the DOOL characters and my opinion on that list I believe comes from a fair POV. and I think Carly is more fitting to that title i.e. flawed heroine. And Hope definitely is way more fitting than Chloe.

    I definitely agree with everyone who has said Sami is not a heroine. lol She never was and she never can be at this point. And I like it that way. Scheming Sami works.

    Danloe doesn’t get a lot of love on the message boards because we get viciously attacked and called ugly names by a small group of hateful people. A lot of people on our board & in our fanbase won’t post if it means being attacked. But we do come out to vote in anonymous polls where no one can call you a mean name. And given how many of us have quit watching Days these results prove that we do have far more fans than the boards will ever accept. They’ve done very well in poll after poll on multiple boards. And the views for their vids on youtube are insane, although one of our vidmakers pulled her account because she wanted a permanent break from this disappointing show. IMO, all fanbases spam to a degree so if someone has figured out how to spam this poll then all couples are going to have a few who are spamming and its going to even itself out. And no doubt I will be bashed for having the nerve to suggest that Danloe is a popular couple in public, but I’m used to it by now. Danloe is a popular couple and they were a huge part of the reason the ratings were great back before TPTB made them look so doomed.

Its impossible for a supposedly tiny fanbase to spam polls on multiple boards like we’re being accused of doing and most of us are busy people anyway. Careers, school, family, other interests besides DOOL. And once again, even though I have a million things to get done, I’m using my free time to defend a couple who have lots of silent fans and feeling sick to my stomach because I know I’m going to be mocked for suggesting its not just 8 Danloe fans voting in this or any other poll. Their vids have hundreds of thousands of views, and the ratings were great for their reunion last year. We were even accused of working for SC last year when a small group of us started posting pro-Danloe over on the NBC board. I wish I got paid to do this, its a headache.

    This poll shocks me. First, I’m amazed at the Carly/Bo support. I’m behind Bo and Hope, even though I actually got hooked on “Days” during Bo and Carly’s romance in the 90s. Hope was presumed dead at the time, and even then, it was clear that she was the love of Bo’s life and that Carly could never replace her. Come on, Bo and Hope are it. I want to see a love that lasts. And anyway, I haven’t found Bo and Carly very interesting this time around. Secondly, I can’t believe there aren’t more votes for EJ/Sami (though at least they’re soundly beating Sami/Rafe), as they seem to create the most buzz, and I find theirs to be one of the most wildly original and entertaining love stories I’ve ever seen. I never gave a flip about Sami until Elvis came along, and suddenly, he saw something in her, and I believed it too. EJ’s all consuming, consistent passion for Sami, that he cannot escape, even when he tries—that’s good stuff. I also feel like her love for him is just as profound, but she’s terrified of it and refuses to embrace it. It’s classic Heathcliff and Cathy fare, whatever souls are made of, theirs are the same, so they’re always drawn toward each other, despite everything. I absolutely love it. It keeps me watching.
    P.S. Chloe and Daniel? Really? And I thought they were incredibly uninspired and uninteresting. Bizarre.

    I FLOVE Danloe…so sexy and in love. Has there ever been a better looking soap pariring??? They ooze sexual chemistry! I’m a sucker for pairs that only have eyes for each other..totally refreshing on this show. None of the other pairs listed deserve my vote since half of each duo would tap out another Salem resident if given the opportunity. Danloe are the only true love pair!
    Chloe is the most interesting and beautiful heroine on DAYS….
    Love ya Michael…lookin’ good!!

    It’s easy to see that this poll is spammed when you look at the number of votes cast in this poll, compared to other ones on this site where fanbased wars aren’t at play. Spamming polls like these is incredibly easy to do. In fact some fanbases post instructions on Twitter and brag about how they are voting “over and over” again. Obviously some people have a lot of time on their hands and an incredible amount of patience and good for them. These polls are something fun to do, but the results don’t really mean a lot in the grand scheme of things. No disrespect intended Michael.

    Hi Izzy:

    Thank you for your sharing your comments and opinions. There has been such negativity posted about these polls. And, what a shame… I thought I was doing this for the loyal fans of DAYS who frequent my site every day, and who we are always trying to listen to their voice about who they would like to hear from in the cast. How incredibly disappointing as we get ready to celebrate the shows 45th, and all they have tried to do to stay on the air through difficult times.

    We did contact the polling platform and it is possible, although we cannot prove who, or how, that the polls could have been “spammed” only in the Duo category which could be why the large disparity in numbers. But what would you like On-Air On-Soaps to do at this point? Would you prefer I cancel the whole thing, right now? We can shut down all the polls if this is something that is really upsetting everybody so much. I did not make this invalid or not something worth treasuring for the actors from the fans, that would fall on the voters, if this is what you are saying happened with the “spamming”. Perhaps the thing to do is.. re-set the vote only in the Favorite Duo category and have a new vote-off Thursday and Friday. Would that satisfy everyone? We can shut this poll down and start from scratch. But if the percentages are the same, then we still end up at the same conclusion of who is the winner. Will other fan bases except that? Will everyone still cry foul? I don’t know. Or, we can just cancel the category all together and not honor any couple from DAYS. That is another option. If it is going to be a bone of contention for my valued site audience we have got to iron this out within reason.

    I, more than anyone, wanted to run a fair contest. In all honesty, we never ran polls on this site, ever before, just for this reason. I can honestly tell you, for all our hard work and plans we will truly have to think twice about ever doing another voting poll on here.

    Best regards,
    Michael

    Michael.

    Since it is possible for the votes to be spammed my recommendation is to cancel the polls. I am a Bope supporter like many others. And everyone that I speak to are Bope supporters as well ( not to say there are not supporters of Carbo). But clearly with history of Bope and the amount of years they have been on Days together..their fanbase is bigger. To many they are days..just like Alice and Tom. The reason many Bope supporters are not on here commenting or voting..is because they are not watching anymore and are not following anything online about Days. They have tuned in elsewhere because not only of Bope being apart but the way the writers went about doing so. I happen to only look up spoilers which is how I found this. Because I am curious and want to watch but I will not until I hear the writers have redeem themselves and put this couple back together. I am also curious to why the Carbo fans are not upset that in all the Billie years never have you heard Carly even mention..all the times Billie was coming between Bo and Hope you always heard the line Billie was his other love in life. So the “5 minutes” Carly was around cannot hold a candle to Bope. Thank you!

    Hi Melissa:

    Thank you for your comments! I appreciate your sentiments very much.

    It is around 4PM on Thursday here in Los Angeles on Pacific time. And only about 4 to five people expressed their thoughts since last evening when I threw my comments out there to the fans of DAYS and my site about a re-set of the Favorite duo poll, canceling everything all together or continuing the polls. So since there was a limited response, after so much negativity being thrown at this for days and days, it shows to me that no one really cared as much as they said, and so I should continue on what I set out to do for the actors on Saturday.

    So, I am continuing all polls through to the end till Tomorrow, Friday at 10PM PST. I am not going to let spammers or hackers or whatever the case ruin what should have been something very neat and special for the actors and the characters you love everyday.

    If you disagree with the votes, I cannot help that. Next time, everyone should play by the rules and control themsleves from spamming. Since we never did polls before, we certainly learned something here, and it leaves us with not a good feeling.

    I am presenting the awards from the fans to the DAYS actor, I am sorry if you disagree with results. But this is the situation that was created…sad to say

    Best regards,
    Michael

    Michael,

    I just want to say thank you for thinking of the fans of Days of Our Lives by trying to organize what should have been a fun poll.

    Your heart was in the right place and I’m so sorry that you are getting such flack.

    BTW – I am both a Danloe and Bope fan.

    Bo and Carly fan #3 replied

    I’m sorry that you are getting caught in the middle of all of this Michael. I think it’s a bit sad when you are such a supporter of this show and it’s actors. I agree that the whole point is to have some fun and support DAYS on it’s 45th anniversary. I am a Bo and Carly fan, but I don’t question other’s love of their couple. I want Bo and Carly to win this poll because they DO have a strong fan following and it seems that everything else is stacked against them, as is repeatedly pointed out to us by other fans. If I were not a Bo and Carly fan, I would want Danloe to win this poll for the same reason. No one likes being told their pairing is pathetic or has no chance. I don’t know what to say about the “spamming”, but I hope that this poll isn’t cancelled for that reason. I do think that people who don’t even watch and support the show anymore because they aren’t being given what they want shouldn’t be the ones to decide what happens. Just my opinion of course.

    Melissa ….

    “But clearly with history of Bope and the amount of years they have been on Days together..their fanbase is bigger.”

    Clearly?

    Oy I am so tired of hearing this. 12 long months of the same thing.

    So can I throw out a few sweeping assumptions of my own?

    Perhaps Bope are past their used by date and this is why the pairing were backburned until the show secured Crystal Chappell’s return?

    Perhaps this is why, since April and the clear shift towards a pro Hope (and therefore a Bope SL) the ratings on this show have bottomed out?

    Give me a break.

    You have absolutely no more basis than I, as a fan, to make such sweeping statements.

    Perhaps fans have enjoyed watching Peter and Crystal rediscover the little piece of magic their unleashed 20 years ago.

    Heck 20 years later and back the fans came. Back hard.

    Heck perhaps it is as simple as people just enjoy watching Bo and Carly smooch more.

    Who knows? Fact remains that despite having an “assumed” superior fanbase build on a 20 year head start in year, Bo and Carly are consistently out polling Bope in just about every forum, including the ratings if we are to review the Bo and Carly focussed SL very the Bo and Hope foccused SL.

    I have tried really hard to not be condescening over the last few months but I grow tired.

    You don’t have to like Bo and Carly. You don’t have to watch the show. Both your right. But don’t come here and whinge and moan amongst fans who are engaged and who want to see this show make good on the golden opportunity presented them with the return of Crystal Chappell.

    Voted Danloe. They are the only couple who have that old school sexy, romantic chemistry. They are 2 people who love each other unconditionally. Together, they share undying passion and define true love. Love Danloe. Voted Chloe too. She is my all time fav heroine.

    Thanks Michael.

    These comments only prove my point for me – Danloe fans don’t post much or leave comments because you will be attacked if you have the nerve to suggest this pairing is a hit. So thank you to all the haters who make it so abundantly clear that posting pro-Danloe is a nightmare and not fun. And now back to my online homework, a lab that makes it impossible for me to clear cookies if I even knew how to do it. As for our fanbase supposedly spamming this poll en masse, we’re the most unorganized fanbase you ever saw and getting cooperation is like herding cats.

    From THE Bo & Carly fan ;) —> The Bope crew keep say there are only 3 of me. Pretty sure me, myself and I don’t have time to submit 5000 votes.

    All joking aside.

    I know I gave you a smidge of a hard time over twitter the other day Michael .. during a drug induced haze (post dental surgery .. and I no lie) of frustration over this show in general but really people? Giving Michael a hard time over spamming.

    Perhaps some fanbases just really want to get behind their favourites in this poll. I for one have not found the magic trick to spam out the poll. Ok so I lie, I voted once from home and once from work. So shoot me.

    Michael I have enjoyed this process. I respect what you are trying to do here. I don’t think you should restart or “can” any polls or the results as they stand because honestly how can you be sure that the Danloe and Bo & Carly fans simply don’t care for their couple a little more? Or a lot more as the evidence suggests.

    I’m so sorry to hear you’re cancelling the poll, this was very exciting for some of us to see because it proved what we’ve been saying for nearly 2 years – that there are more Danloe fans that just a few of us. No one I know has been obsessively spamming, our board has very little participation at the moment and we all felt very happy seeing how much support there is for Danloe. I guess part of the problem is the accepted “wisdom” that Danloe is a flop, has no fans, so any strong support must be rigged even though their youtube vids have hundreds of thousands of views, the Sony fanthread has almost half a million, no of course its got to be spam even though the reality is our fanbase can’t stand to post on nasty message boards and those of us who do post get bashed.

    This is disappointing but I guess you have no choice since its causing such hard feelings. Its typical though, anytime Danloe gets any kind of support haters come out of the woodwork to say mean things. Even leaving comments on NBC episodes, things like “the one Danloe fan posting over and over” get said when a bunch of us left comments one day. Oh wel, c’est la vie, thank you for taking the time to have this poll. I’m sorry it turned into such a headache for your site Micheal.

    Hey Beth:
    The Polls were never canceled they are still on going and I am going to set out to conduct them the way we stated right through to the end. So please if you are a Danloe fans, tell others to continue to vote. I threw that offer out there to fans last evening, if everyone was so outraged by the outcomes, but i am continuing onward and upward.

    Thank you for your comments and you know I love Shawn and Nadia as Danloe to pieces, too.

    Sorry you have to go thru this nonsense,seriously this is just a fun poll.
    There’s no million dollar prize in it, why do ppl make it so difficult.
    I truly appreciate your efforts in this, and even if my favorite duo doesn’t win, I am not gonna cry, or complain. Everyone supports their favs -but not everyone can win.
    Anyways I enjoyed to participate in it., whatever the outcome.

    All these polls on the internet IMO aren’t real due to all the spamming! I hope Michael knows that some posters are masters on beating the system. There polls just seem to bring out the obbession of wanting to win and voters work at it as it is a Job! Vote ahead. I know that you have the best intention Michael, but really? Ture sampling of what the fans want? don’t think so! JMO

    I am really sorry that there has been negativity regarding these polls. Honestly, I do not know how people are spamming, but then again I am a bit clueless when it comes to computers!!lol

    I just wanted to say thank you for allowing us to comment our opinions about the characters, couples and the show in general. It feels good to be able to offer compliments to such a wide scale of excellent actors.

    I do have one question though, why is Sami put in the herione poll? I mean considering we are celebrating 45 years here and Alison won several emmys for being the best villan.

    Once again thx very much, I do like your website. It’s nice to see how many people care about this show.

    I am so tired of hearing that Bo & Carly fans spam all the polls. I personally do not know how to spam this poll and only voted once. But it really doesn’t matter if it’s spammed because spammed or not, polls like these let TPTB know that there IS an audience out here for this couple. They can write for them and people WILL watch. And if the Bo/Hope fan base is soooo much bigger than ours, then it should be soooo easy for you to out-spam us and sweep all the polls. Obviously, that’s not the case because we keep winning! Bo & Carly are love. Recognize it!
