Do you realize you sound just as bad as the people you are criticizing?
Everyone on here is a fan - I know some here feel superior to say otherwise when any type of critique is made, but they are.
How about this:
"I am a bigger fan then you because I am super upset we were the first team eliminated this year.
So how about you and your seemingly impervious reaction to the success or the lack there of team that I am a huge fan of can be quiet."
I can understand being upset. I am upset as well. But I don't go on the internet seeking some kind of justification for my feelings like some of you guys do. I don't see how bitching/pouting helps cope with the loss. If that's what the "bigger" fans do then I will gladly remain with the not so bigger fans. Hopefully there is a message board for those kinds of fans.
