They don’t have to, sure. But they aren’t entitled to us liking their decisions. They aren’t entitled to us feeling like they respect us. They aren’t entitled to our respect. They aren’t entitled to us not voicing our concerns about where a franchise we care about is headed. They can ignore what the fans want all day long, but they can’t do it and expect us to be happy at the same time.
If you don’t care about your concerns to get heard and get neglected then this attitude is absolutely valid, yes.
