Well, I think there are some Margate fans who are so arrogant and full of themselves that they simply can't cope with being beaten; they feel they have a 'divine right' to win matches, and when they don't, they either sulk by completely withdrawing from reality until the next time they thump another team (as demonstrated by no posts from Margate supporters on the Isthmian League forum I'm a member of, since their defeat), or they display their arrogance and stupidity with comments like the one on their forum. It's pointless arguing with such people, as they are too proud and blind to humble themselves and see anyone but themselves as the centre of the universe.
On the other hand, there are 1 or 2 intelligent and generous comments from Margate supporters on the same thread. I also thought Terry Brown's post-match interview was honest and generous towards Dulwich, while also expressing his understandable disappointment with the defeat.
There's a lesson here in the importance of continuing to communicate and maintain a positive outlook when things are going badly; hard to do, but I think we do it pretty well at Dulwich at the moment. Let's keep it up!
