Keeping the fans entertained is the most important factor in owning a sports franchise. Their loyalty to the team’s ups and downs just shows how passionate they can be. However, it’s not always sunshine and rainbows as most teams have to go through some kind of adversity. There are a ton of fans who want the heartache to end and they’ll do anything to take over the franchise. These fans take it upon themselves to get ownership’s attention, whether’s a championship drought, poor play or incompetent front office executive. Feel free to shout out your frustrations if this applies to you.
