fan for life is nice and all. personally i agree with you. but some people root for a team because it's close or just root for it on the basis of liking a certain player.
all being a fan for life really does is allow you to go through the entire ups and downs of the franchise. generally that's how the Bengals and other ****ty franchise stay afloat. because they know that despite the fan unrest they can still make money and not really have to do well because people would rather complain and be a part of something than to leave and force change.
