Think about it. If seeing the team win is secondary to the process, wouldn't it be more likely that a person would gravitate to whatever team best fit their "model" rather than adopting a team that isn't doing things "their" way and gnashing teeth over it?
If a person doesn't really care about a team, why would they gnash teeth over them?
I think a lot of fans here do gravitate toward teams that fit their model. There are plenty of folks who seem to spend a lot of time following the A's, which is fine.
