The author of this article didn't interview any Bengals fans.

I didn't see any mention of hopelessness, depression, and nausea.

It also failed to mention damage to hearts brought on by years of rooting for a victory you know is never going to happen.

The stress of rooting for the Bengals has caused all the sysptoms above and none of the ones mentioned in the article...lol

Rooting for the same team creates an immediate sense of family, says Daniel Wann, PhD, a Murray State University professor who has been studying the psychology of sports fans for over 20 years. If you identify with a local team, you build an instant connection to others around you, he says.
He could have added that bashing an owner also creates a sense of family. Right, my MBS brothers and sisters?
