I really wish there were a way to institute a universally accepted 3-year "shut up and know your role" policy for all new fans of teams. You can become a fan of any team whenever you want. You must watch and support the team for 3 years before you can start **** talking people about it. That's it. Pay your dues, then go nuts. Everyone has to start somewhere, so its fine to join later on than others. But sit down and shut up for a while first.
I've put a lot of Nets fans in their places, and by a lot I mean like two. All you have to do is ask to name the starting 5 last year, or at least who played center when Lopez went down. If you can't muster up Petro and Williams, then you haven't "always been a Nets fan, even when they were bad."
