Fans can exercise control in two ways: by deciding to attend/watch games, and by communicating their relative satisfaction through forms of media.
It's obvious that Missouri fans have been vocal and vociferous (not to mention correct) in their excoriation of Haith, who is a tactical buffoon and a leader that commands no respect. They've also started largely avoiding the games.
Why should fans choose to attend games if the product is so horrendous?
For someone who crows incessantly about all the good things that the soccer team in Kansas City does, you sure don't seem to be able to apply or understand those concepts in any meaningful fashion.
You took this completely wrong. Not surprising...you often are.
I don't really question Missouri fans in a "you are not real fans type of way" but more so that Missouri fan seem only have way dedicated when they are doing really well....there are times when it doesn't seem like Missouri has fair weather fans.
I wonder if the pendulum has swung pretty far to football.
Also, aside from Missouri being an average team...college basketball simply felt awful this year. Could be the conference switch but fouls felt like they didn't have any rhyme or reason to it and.....I don't even know how to explain it. Was hard to get into this year.
