    and got invaded by bandwagoners who are only here for the good times? You know like 50 percent of Warriors fans.

    Should we welcome them with open arms? They weren't part of the pain and the frustration but are here for the glory. I for one can not stand these type of fans and will accept them.

    So, you can't stand them and you will accept them?

    Ok?

    Not every fan of every team was a fan from birth. Many of today's fans became fans in 1994 & 1995. Who cares why they become fans as long as they stay fans when times aren't good?

    And if the Rockets suddenly became real good, I wouldn't give a flying f*** who the fans were. I'd just be happy about them being really good.

    Ironic, since looks like you jumped onboard after our first WCF in 18 years.

    Who cares? Who made us the authority on who can be a fan and when?

    a little too worried about others it seems like. that's not something you can control. if they aren't doing any hard towards you, who cares. Worry more about yourself and enjoy it

    Geez, I don't care if fans are bandwagon fans or not, who the hell are we to judge what other people's fandom is like.

    Just enjoy that the team is good and more people are talking about it.

    Don't be THAT GUY!

    If I was THAT GUY - you would all be bandwagon fans. :)

    You should build a wall around the Toyota Center to keep out non-Rocket's fans and have them pay for that wall as well.

    50% of Dubs fans are bandwagoners you say? That's a really low estimate.

    There are no Warriors bandwagon fans. We are all Warriors fans. The Warriors are something bigger than what we can understand. Open your mind to the Warriors.

    Ha, you bring your racist garbage here too.

    Hopefully it will hasten your demise.

    What was wrong with the fans in the video? I just don't understand the correlation at all. A most unfortunate thread on Clutchfans.

    To be grossly generalistic, you can put half of GSW fans into a basket of bandwagoners, which RocketsLegend calls deplorables.

    I would welcome them with open arms. The garm has the ability to educate those who want to learn.
    When I first started reading the board I knew nothing about general mangers or salary caps. Clutchfans Took me from being a casual fan to being well informed fan of the NBA in general.

    There will be idiots, there always are. But there is also the opportunity for there to be a new generation of Jrs and Carl Herreras (pre Patterson trade).

    New blood keeps the board healthy.

    Bandwagoners aren't here permanently. That's why they're called bandwagoners

    Oh god. Does this mean that you'll be here permanently?

    Was hoping you'd just go away when Trump does.

    Trump is going to win Jackass, so I'm going to be here for 4 years and then another 4 years and then 8 more years through Ivanka's presidency
