Comments on sports news published on the digital platforms of newspapers have turned these spaces into forums for debate in which homogeneous social communities are established. The aim of this research is to find out how the participants of these platforms interact in the sports press and what impoliteness strategies they use when evaluating the text of the news and the comments of other users. For this purpose, a qualitative textual analysis of a corpus of 1,000 digital comments produced on the Australian Open 2022 final in four of the most widely distributed Spanish newspapers with the highest national circulation, El País, ABC, Marca and Mundo Deportivo, was carried out. The results of the research allowed us to know how communities are grouped in these forums, the discursive strategies used by their members to relate to each other and the differences in affinity, tone and ideology that are established between them.
