As sports fans, do we have the right to say "we" when talking about our favorite team? Yes, we sure as hell do.
When you're watching your favorite football team play this season, and you're saying to yourself “we need to block the kick” or “we won!” it's okay.
Its all about being part of something bigger than yourself. We all yearn for that. Whether its sports or clubs or fandoms -- they're all different breeds of the same thing.
To put it in the clearest context, we support the team; when a team wins, their fans win as well
The fans are the ones supporting the team.
If it weren't for fans, sports teams would simply not exist.
The supporters are as much part of a team's success as the coaches and players.
Coaches and players come and go but fans, for the most part, are forever.
While we don't take part of the action on the field, court, or in the ring, we definitely take part to why sports and sports franchises are so popular.
We spend money on merchandise and tickets, and we spend time watching the games and looking up statistics.
We have every right to celebrate as if we were part of the team.
Also, have you ever heard of "The 12th Man?" It's a football term; because in football only eleven players are allowed to be on the field -- but the fans are the 12th man.
