Just curious what you guys think I was talking to a friend about the Wizards and I said we need to get this player and he said I shouldn't say we as if I played on the team. He said we only applies to people in the organization he made a good point but I pointed out that sense I'm a fan that has spent money on game tickets ,concession stand, team merchandise that I was entitled to call the team we,after all a Team is nothing without it's fans ask the Vancuver Grizzlies if fans don't support, teams will move to more favorable locations, what yall think.

hmmm.

I have to say no, I only think that Players, Coaches, and high executives can say that. I really don't think the Assistant Traveling secretary ever hit a buzzer beater.

Without fans, there is no NBA. We have earned the right to say "we" when referring to the team we root for.

I think this is another matter of fans that can and will say what they wish. It isn't like it is a law - set in concrete - and can be enforced. Know what I mean? ;)

Well, what do you do? Do you say "we" and if you do, do you feel comfortable saying it, as if you are part of the team?

It depends on the situation. Sometimes I have said "we" and sometimes I have said "they". It is something I don't even think about, as it isn't something that matters to me all that much. Again, if it was a "law", it would be different.

If someone corrected me when I said "we", I'd just smile and walk away. To each his own...know what I mean?
