Expenses are not the end all be all. If a certain fund is 1% more in expenses but outperforms by 3%, I would say that is a pretty trade off. Take VTI for example, compare it to YACKX, PRPFX, SPECX and the S&P 500. Compare it over the last 5 years and lifetime. I would have gladly paid extra for those returns.
ETA: I also own some vanguard funds, so I am not totally against those.
