I don't really understand this mentality. You got the record you hoped for this season. Shouldn't you be celebrating this, since it's what you professed to want? Instead, just more bitching, but now aiming the hate at other fans.
maybe its because throughout tghe season when knowlegable fans point out deficiencies in this team they are label 'non fans' are told to 'root for another team' or that the 'sky isnt falling and those loses wont mean anything because will will get things going and make the playoffs'.
now that those observations come to fruition, those 'non fans' wnat to make it a point that they were right all along and now the 'real fans' want to pretend they didnt say those things.
