I think that only applies to the weirdos that live vicariously through their football team. Normal people don't feel that way.Can't argue with that statement at all. We went through a very similar thing.
Plenty of opposition fans can tolerate or even "like" your team, providing you are no threat, and depending on the arrogance of the supporter, know your place. What they don't like is when you dare to start winning, and even worse, become genuinely successful by winning premierships. That apparently is just too much.
And like all bullies, when the maligned team turns around and starts handing out some smackings, the supporters tend to throw their hands aloft and plead "why are you so mean?"
