The president plans to ransack the country’s health insurance coverage, and his voters seem entirely unfazed. When a pro football team disappoints its fans, most of those fans are back in their stadium seats or chained to their televisions the following Sunday. For the most part, sports fans mate for life, and so they rarely abandon their fealty to their team, regardless of how often it craps the bed. There’s absolutely nothing wrong with this fan/franchise relationship because, win or lose, the outcome of sports competitions don’t really precipitate any serious consequences to society outside the fate of the players and staff.
