[QUOTE]We (you and I) are responsible for voting in our politicians as well, but we dont sit there and say "we" when speaking about our congressmen/women. Without us, there wouldnt be people in congress, etc. Also, we as fans are only responsible for keeping the Pats here in New England. If we stopped going to games, the team would move on to another city. I am as big a Boston sports fan as anyone, I just have a hard time hearing people include themselves in the decisions of the team. I agree WE are the ones who choose the colors, WE are the ones who buy the product, but WE arent the ones who throw the nut around, and WE arent the ones who make the tackles in the snow, etc. We weren't good enough to make it past high school ball (or some of us college), lets not live our lives vicariously through the players, it makes us look ignorant as fans.

This might be the single most retarded analogy I've ever seen on this forum . . . and that is going a fair country distance.
Politicians are voted in by whatever majority they can manage to beg borrow or steal, out of the people who even bother to vote, and then foist upon those who didn't vote for them whether they like it or not. And even beyond all that, the owner of the franchise, himself, includes the fans as an extension of his organization . . . or maybe you don't remember " . . . tonight, we are all Patriots." Hell, that night, it wasn't just us he was talking about . . . it was everybody.
I figure if it's good enough for Robert Kraft, I guess it's good enough for me.
