WD, it's only human to be that way-I can't really fault people too much for that. I recently started digging through some Redskin fan forum archives-and other similar forums out of curiosity to get a sense of fan reaction during last season-both the first half 6-2 run and the second half 2-6 collapse. Generally during the first half the Zorn/Campbell combo was the greatest thing since sliced bread, during the second half they were tar-and-feather worthy. It's just how we react to things. I don't expect everyone to react the same so I have no problem with homers or the critics either-I pretty much understand why both feel as they do. People just react differently, that's all. I'm a Redskin fan who roots for the team but tries to stay honestly aware of where the team has weaknesses as well as strengths-and why they're there and I enjoy discussing and exchanging ideas on them.Let's face it DC likes a winner.
However, I find it interesting that now Ovie is here and the Caps are winning, everybody is a Caps fan and have been lifelong fans.......
bandwagoning at it's best.
Wait, the Caps have more players than just Ovechkin?I've seen it and heard it from people about how the Skins are so terrible and the Caps are so great and always have been The Team, yet you ask them anything about the Caps other than Ovie and they have no clue but they love to rub it in your face about the Skins being bad.
