That's a way for fans to connect to a team and a community, more so in times of when teams are successful or winning. It's nearly universal for team or sport and isn't limited to a select fanbase.
Those same fans will generally say "They suck" in times of despair but "We win" when things go swimmingly.
Back in the early days of cable TV, a now-defunct financial channel broadcast sports on the weekends and there was a straight-laced talk host who would disconnect people when they said "We" or "What do you think about...?" It was humorous.
