That mostly isn't.

My point is that there are too much fans of this team -- an especially on these boards -- that are more fans of individuals than fans of a team. Or, actually, of THE team.

Which is funny, considering that this mentality (individual over team) is the exact opposite of why this current edition is actually successful.
