Since starting my fandom in 1978 I've been this outraged exactly 2 times. Kotite '95-'96 and Ryan '12-'13. I'm allowed.
It must be nice from the cheap seats, Ebert.
From 2001-2010 I attended 5+ home games a season enduring a 10+ hour round trip drive to watch Herman Edwards and the gang lose more games than we won. 55 round trips in snow, ice, driving rain, never stopped believing.
New stadium? First in line. Like any other fan with 4 seats, spent $16,000+ on PSL's and committed to 30 years of season tickets to the tune of $240,000. I'll miss hundreds of my kids soccer games, baseball games, miss hundreds of my grandkids ballet recitals and theater performances.
So you keep your opinions on what makes a good "fan" to yourself there in the cheap seats. You don't live in New York, you don't make an effort to attend live games, you don't spend any money on the team, and we don't need an angry poster critic pretending to be a Jets fan taking potshots when true fans are at an all-time low.
Pitchers and catchers reporting soon, Mr. Washington Nationals fan.
