A real fan can also care enough to vote with their wallet to inspire/encourage
and even force change. (if enough fans vote with their wallets in the same way)
I dont really fully agree with the idea that there is something good about blindly supporting any team, business, or entity that is getting worse in what they provide for fans/customers. Frankly, as a BYU fan, I'd be fine with some big money donors saying they arent happy with the program and are going to no longer support it if changes arent made....I'm not saying that is appropriate in the middle of the season but if things dont get better then I'd be fine if a fan voted with their wallet and said they arent going to support things that are going the wrong way.
