The ones who matter.
In pro sports, players often talk about thankfulness for the team owners who gave them a chance, and the fans who show up for them. They work “for” them.
The owners are up the ladder. They have control and steer the ship on the highest level. They set compensation and get to decide direction.
The fans are more fickle and demand the best each day (especially when they are in the stands), they lift players up and criticize freely.
In what ways are your players owners and fans in your world?
