It's like cheering for the Kings to fail.

If a player is donning a kings jersey, you cheer for him as if he were part of your family. You encourage him through his struggles and cheer for his efforts even without results-ESPECIALLY without results. You don't keep kicking a player when he's down, that's just chicken****.
