My statement is not meant to be taken at a dig at 187, Fox4, or Dave Painter. Its more of an alternate view to all the fanboys who post how loyal the team is to one another and their sponsors, yet fail to realize why they are so loyal to each other. Granted that they are all friends NOW aside from being teammates, which I feel is the most important aspect on forming a winning team, whos to say what would happen if someone with a bigger wallet, more exposure, more sponsorship opportunities came in and tried to purge 187 of its top talent.
