this never happens. they'll complain, they swear they're done with the team but the reality is that fans would rather suffer through a bad franchise and be entertained so that they can say they were there through all the bad than to actually take their money away and force the team to improve.
look at almost any sport and pathetic franchises. fans won't give up something they enjoy to enact change.
