Bandwagoners only stick around for a year or so.
The Ducks had their season tickets all sold out for ONE YEAR only. Look at it now. The season seats are available because the wagon fell apart after their 1st round collaspe against the Stars. (Most of their season seats were almost always sold on Ebay. Some people had like 30 seats to one account. They were just hogging up the spots to make the playoffs had the Ducks gone deep in the playoffs again.) I'm sure the Ducks will still draw some strong numbers in the 2008-2009 season, but I don't think they'll sell out more than 15 times this year.
That's fine and all, and I respect the history the Dodgers have. But you can't seriously use that argument forever.Quote:

I personally don't understand the people who try to use that as their argument for having a better team. If the championships are before your lifetime, it doesn't count. Especially not for fans who use that reason to back up their team. The fact is that the Dodgers have not won a title in 20 years. It's like Yankee fans who brag about their 26 Title, when they've only been along for the ride for a year.
I didn't like the baseball and the Angels until 1999, so the 2002 was a very awesome time for me personally. (It was with the Lakers 3-peat and my High School Gradation all in that year.)
Just like with the Lakers. I've only seen 3 world championships in my lifetime. I didn't get into basketball until the 1992-1993 season. I don't try to argue with people about the showtime days and the days before that.
Bottom line. The Angels have been great the past 6-7 years. The Dodgers, have not. But again, I have nothing against the Dodgers. They still have a great shot in the NL West right now. But Dodger fans need to stop being so bitter, because their argument looks weaker and weaker as the years go on.
For example... this guy.
