When did the word "Fan" change to mean....

.... ".a person who gains encyclopedic knowledge of a team so as to accurately direct hatred toward various players, coaches, and supporting staff of the aforementioned team."

I think I liked the old definition better:

1 : an enthusiastic devotee (as of a sport or a performing art) usually as a spectator.
