Bandwagon fans

I just had this conversation with my dad, and I was curious to see what you all thought.

When the Cubs are once again contenders (hopefully in the near future) and all of the inevitable bandwagon fans start jumping on, what will your attitude be like towards these fans? Take the Blackhawks for example, before they started their dynasty I knew very few people who cared about the Blackhawks or hockey as a whole. Now everyone and their mother is a HUGE Blackhawks fan. Every legitiment Blackhawks fan that I know does not like the bandwagon fans, and I don't think I'll like the cubs bandwagon fans. Why? First of all becuase they will drive the price of tickets through the roof, and how do I respect someone who only started following the team when they made the playoffs?
