Most of us are all fans/supporters of some kind of club, team or group. I am a fan myself of 2 teams, Manchester United(a football team) and TSM(A League Of Legends Team).
When I was 4, I was introduced to the sport as we all know today as football(or soccer). I was surrounded by people who played football and took a huge interest in the sport. So, at the age of 5 from the influence of the people surrounding me; my family, friends and neighbours I started watching football and started supporting a team. Yes, Manchester United. I won’t go on about my boring childhood as I am not here to talk about that.
I was a fan of the team Manchester United since the age of 5. Most of you probably know that Manchester United is one of the well known or “popular” clubs. Well, back in the day Manchester United was one of the best clubs in the world. In my mind, they were. Well, throughout the years, Manchester United have won consecutive Leagues. Until one year when their manager, Sir Alex Ferguson left the club. From then onwards, everything went downhill. Don’t worry, I’m getting to the point.
Today, I still support Manchester United. Even though they are performing so horribly in the league this season, I still support them because they are my one and ONLY team. What I am trying to say is that some people around the world(including some of my friends) support one team in the beginning, and then when they find out that their team is performing horribly, they automatically change who they support. Hate is a really strong word in my opinion but I really hate it when people keep changing from one team to another every single time the team they support fails. If YOU support a team, you need to support them for as long as they are there, even if they fail or win you keep supporting them.
These type of people are not so evident in football. But in the competitive stage of League of Legends, there are also many teams that people support. The team I support as I said above is TSM(Team Solo Mid). Back in the day, they were known as one of the top League Of Legends teams. Now, they are still one of the top but not as good as they were back then. I didn’t care though, I chose to support them and I will keep supporting them no matter what happens. I don’t support them because of just one player in their team. I support them because of their whole team, each and every one individual.
What I am trying to say is when you support something, if it is a team, group, band or anything for that matter, you need to stick by that team for the rest of your life. I know I might be slightly exaggerating when I say “rest of your life” but in my opinion, once you make your decision on something like this, you keep it.
