Sports are a business, and you are supposed to understand that, in this day and age, no contract is guaranteed as trades can occur at any time for any player. Would it have been nice to keep Richards? Sure, but, the team now has much more flexibility down the line and landed the best prospect in the world by trading him. It sucks that he won't be here anymore but to say that you're switching allegiances because of one player doesn't show pride or integrity...it shows naivety.
So people aren't allowed to follow other teams or players they like because you don't care?
If anything you should understand why people may not want to buy a Jersey with a name on it. I mean

It is one thing for someone to say they will now start following other teams, and another thing to say they hate this team and they no longer are a fan.
