I just don't think we can beg for people to go, watch and appreciate and then call them out for being bandwagon fans.

Whether we like it or not it's those folks who fill up the seats and put cash in the coffers.

Plus, we sound condescending and petty when we do it IMO. Some of the most knowledgeable and loyal fans I know won't go until they're done being made fools of for spending money on a laughable product. Maybe those people are slowly coming around.

What is a bandwagon anyway? :TD:

That's easy, Rosie O. Who want's to follow Tom Arnold?

I don't hate them now. If we make the playoffs and I get shut out on tickets and have to pay over face to go, then I hate them.

See 2007.

I never would've thought winning would increase attendance but go figure. ;-) ;) :wink:

But it's good for them to be winning games especially in walk-off fashion with a crowd like last nights because it's only going to create more of a buzz. Keep it up cause this is fun.
