The hysteria is ridiculous, I agree.

Everybody thinks there is a silver bullet, they know what it is, and they are incensed it is not being used.

It's not that simple, Tspot, but people want to believe it is. Fans like you, who are not wetting the bed because it's a down year and their expectations have not been met, are willing to stay to the end of the game even when the team is losing. But the ones whose hearts are broken, who cannot stomach the thought of cheering for the team even though it's not performing as well as we'd hoped, leave the stadium in droves.

I don't know for sure but I would guess you'd see this behavior most places. Let them be hysterical, most will come back to earth eventually.
