Saccomanno talks about fans as extended Broncos "family."

21

"The biggest single question one ever has to ask oneself about anything in the world — a team, a belief, a relationship — is, "Are you in, or are you out? If the answer is you’re not sure, you are out. If the answer is you are in sometimes, or depending on team success, you are out. A friend of mine in local television often jokes that "we are with you, win or tie." That is kind of amusing, always worth a chuckle, which we always share. But as to where they are in the Broncos family, the answer is those people are out. It is perfectly understandable that there are a great many fans who have their most vocal support when the team wins. That will never change, and it is the same in every city. Not to be overly harsh, but sometimes you just have to dismiss the rest of them. The fair weather fans will always come back when you win. The critic is by definition someone looking for something to criticize."
