Kinda creepy actually.
I think this is a really good analysis. It happened to me with the Royals. I was a fan that just started getting mad at the team, and before long, I was turning on optimistic fans, a d wanting the team to fail, just so the optimistic fans would look bad, and maybe join me. I'm over that now, however.
