loyalty to a team

if you follow a football team (or any other sport for that matter) and attend the games would you stay loyal through bad times as well as good(keep buying season books etc)or would you not attend matches because things arent going great?

do you think a team is for life and not just for good times?
an MT member that springs to mind is twizted clown who is an avid motherwell fan who attends games and is far from a glory hunting fan and im sure he will back me on this.
iv been a celtic season ticket holder through all the good times and bad and i will suport them no matter what.
so what are everyone elses feelings on this?

    Yes stay with them of course.

    I'm sure 99% of people will feel the same.

    I support Leeds and I haven't decided to switch teams lol.

    Ah right.

    I rarely go to matches anyway. Only away games when they play within a couple of hundred miles of where I live. I can't go up to Leeds all the time, I don't have the money to travel.

    I'm with drab, as a Leicester fan I can't afford to switch alegiances every time we have a bad patch...

    It's a little harder to keep up to speed with the foxes now I've moved away and we're rooted in the championship, but that's what the internet and trains are for!

    Motherwell til I die!

    Been through the good time of Europe, to the bad times of nearly going out of business. The bad times are worth it as it makes the good time even better!

    People that don't attend games if they're team aint winning or if they don't think its a big enough game are not fans- they are glory hunters, the scum of the football world.

    knw exactly wat you mean.

    been a Mclaren fan since Mikka and Coulthard days and seen Mclaren through some real sh*t seasons. this season somehow i have noticed there are ALOT more fans of Mclaren n Renault......3 odd seasons ago you ask any Joe of the street about F1 it was all Ferrari.

    oh and im an LCFC fan....kinda sucks hopefully be in the Prem next season.....cross ma fingers lol

    Stay loyal. Distance is the problem for me at the minute as a Stoke fan in Colchester, but I was a fan during the bad times and the worse times, and travelled everywhere. If I stopped going everytime we had a bad patch, then I would have only been to a couple of dozen matches in the last ten years

    Me too been a McLaren fan when I first started watching when shumi was out and it was eddie irvine driving. Hakkinen just about won it that year.

    BTW Hakkinen is back racing in the DTM and he sure is blitzing the rest of the field.

    I'm an Everton fan & always will be!

    I'm 26 now & when I was a lil kid I remember some glorious victories, then as I entered my teens we turned into a relegation struggling outfit, but it was during thoses times I held a season ticket and watched them religiously! I remember the famous Wimbledon game that kept us in the premier league.

    Now we have the prospect of entering the champions league group stages & I cant wait!

    I will follow my team through thick & thin with the same loyalty! Its just that bit easier when yer winning!

    Me too! Everton through and through. Always supported them but used to live in Germany so had to settle for the TV. When we moved back to UK we all got seasons tickets.
    I was at the Wimbeldon game too, I even got onto the pitch

    I have and always will support Everton!

    Getting my new shirt on Monday morning just in time for Tuesdays game.
