The "We" discussion

12 September 2012 - 05:55 PM

So, I have a couple of buddies who agree that when you are talking about your favorite sports team, you should never use "we" in place of the team name. For example: "we just can't catch a break," or "we struggle with runners in scoring position." I know I have pulled this move plenty of times, but now I'm going to be conscious of it. Their theory is simply that you are not on that team, so where exactly does the "we" come in? I would say that "we" would be all Cubs fans, right?... but now I don't know what to think.... so I decided to bring it to Bleacher Nation for thoughts?
