A good fan is behaving like a good marriege.....going through thick and thin. Being negative helps nobody on your team. So supporting them when things go wrong is very important.....maybe Dinamo Riga and Latvian have a certain number of fans that are less "good".
But that goes for any sport in any country.
It's when your team suck, weather sucks etc that you truly see who the good fans are.....
Example of a loyal fan is the the lone Italian football fan that defied the weather and showed up alone in Genoa to his great surprise for the away game against Sampdoria! (actually Udinese are doing quite well at the moment).
