Indeed. Unlike some of the loyalty oath fare being pushed here on this site, declaring oneself a Ticat fan considering our recent lack of success is enough masochism to earn one a "Get Out Of Jail Free" card at least, I would think!
"Real fans" or "reeling real fans" don't need to sweat being called out by folks who more often than not are more concerned with their self-annointed status as being a True Believer (TM) that actually supporting the club through thick and thin, even if one is critical about the direction of the team's fortunes from time to time.
Living in Montreal, it is a curious thing to declare my football allegiance in Als country...I often get the requisite expression of sympathy re the Cats situation or (surprisingly often) I get the reply that the Cats are a team that many consider their #2. Funny how many Cat fans one finds in this East outpost if one talks football! LOL
If we can get past the collective offseason urination Olympics on ticats.ca until training camp, that would be nice...being prudent, I will continue to keep my umbrella low and avoid being downwind.
