Just get over it. Be supportive. Again, if the players were reading these boards,they wouldn't be inspired to play better. They'd be more inclined to get pissed off because they get very little support in here. It's your team. You shouldn't be proud of them only when they are playing well. They represent your city, your childhood or your identity - whatever it was that made you become fans in the first place. In European football, there are thousands of thousands of fans that turn up to the fourth division teams matches, not because they are good or even have a chance in hell of winning any major tournaments. They show up because it doesn't matter if their team loses 9-0 or gets relegated to playing in the worst league in the entire world. It's still their team and they are proud of it.
So be proud. Stop acting like the rangers owe you a perfect start to the season. Be patient. You can be upset, sure, but when you're only upset you're not a fan. You're a pissy little kid who needs to go take a time out.
You make a lot of good points. There are times I'm down on a player or a coach but I tend to be a glass half full kind of fan. The glass is always empty, complain about everything types of "fans" seem to have some sort of real world issues and they spread that misery on sports boards. Its a shame but nothing we can do about it.
While I would like to see some player personal changes I'm still hopeful for this season. 1-3, or 0-10 will not stop me from rooting for this team.
