You have those that are more loyal and refrain from criticism and then you have a "loyal opposition" as they call it. It's necessary and healthy. The "hater" angle that some people trot out is more a gimmick to me and just a red herring for those that actually take it seriously and seize upon it ...

I see your point and agree. You can be a true fan, in every sense, and criticize the organization, management, etc. etc. and that's healthy and needed.

I just find it a little over the top when one fan of the same team says to another that he doesn't have the education to understand 4th grade math.

That's just a LITTLE insulting.
