I would always see comments about how the fans would take credit for everything that a group does. For example, "Group X got their first win because of us. We finally got our first win you guys yay." They make it seem as if they're the ones who got the award and then next thing you know, that ends up becoming a bragging right and then next thing you know the fandom gets a bad rep, and to some that could end up reflecting onto the group. If you asked me this months ago, I would have said yes, but recently my answer has been no. I've learned that it is possible to like a group but still hate the fandom. In case you are still confused with what I'm asking, I'm pretty much just asking if you think a fandom and a group work as one, as if the fandom is part of the group or do you think the fandom and the group are two completely separate things.
