Not that I don't agree, but you should know the opposite of love is not hate, it's indifference.

They do it for the same reason you love them. Because they did love, and still love them, but got their hearts broken. I've been guilty of this myself over the years.

In fact, if we go 0-3, you're going to hear me bitching about all kinds of things. In the end what everyone wants to see, is us winning. Some guys take it better than others when we don't. I don't take it well but Sunday's game was an exception due to Cam's performance.

Shows passion. I have nothing wrong with someone bitching about things they don't like. If everyone was a yesman sheep, it sure would be boring around here.

being realistic about expectations and giving constructive criticism =/= ripping on your team

i wonder how many of the so called "fans" will still be the vocal "i only see the silver lining" fans if this team continues to lose games.

My goal when discussing the team is not to make myself feel good. I leave that up to the team; if they win games I'll be happy. When discussing the team I only seek to have an accurate understanding of how the team operates and what strengths and weaknesses they have.

I don't differentiate saying something positive about the team from saying something negative about the team. Saying something that is correct about the team is fine by me regardless.

A fan cares. If they didn't rip at times...they are indifferent and really just don't care about it other than having a team to pull for.

I wish I didn't care so much at times.

I look at every game as a possible win. I had the same mindset last year, and the year before that, and so on and so on.

I expect CJ and Hardy to beat the hell out of Rodgers. I expect our run game to finally take off this week. If not, I expect Newton and company to torch the Packers secondary. A team , over the last few seasons, known for giving up big plays through the air.

It's just some people's nature to be negative but it doesn't mean they aren't fans.
