We don't want to be right; we just want them to leave us alone.
Didn't intend to insult. If it's not being right then what is it? The only thing you get by being uber negative is the satisfaction of being right if they fail. If you hold no hope then why be a fan? Is it some sort of defense mechanism to ease the pain if they fail, as in "Geez they suck but at least I was right"? Do you bet against the team as well so you win SOMETHING?
