Call me guilty there as well. I say "we" when discussing the Rangers even though I'm not any part of the organization other than being a fan.
One could argue that without the fans, the team folds up shop and moves to another location, so in fact using the term "we" is not really all that bad, since without fans there is no team.
Look at what the fans do. Take the Yankees or Boston and see how many tickets they sell, merchandise sales, etc. Always sold out as far as tickets go, and management spends money on players because the revenue is there. Take someone like Tampa Bay, or Florida, and see that management doesn't spend money on the team since fans are not in the stands (less revenue). Fans do have an effect on what happens with the team, so they really are a part of that.
Not worth arguing about, so I'll just say I'm guilty of referring to the Rangers as "we" sometimes, and I'm sure it's a habit that I probably won't bother trying to break. Sorry Havok.
