Using the term "WE" when referring to our team

I disagree with the main point in the article. Fans have every right to use "we". There is an emotional investment in sports team that you don't really find in any other form of entertainment. The fans are a huge part of the reason why the team exists (not the only part) and they are mainly localized in the same area. This brings the fans so close to the team and makes them feel part of it.
The use of "we" is what differentiates a real fan from a casual fan. Sure, it might not be grammatically correct but does it really matter?
