Yeah, bit of a cultural difference though. In europe you don't go to the games to be entertained, you go to support your team. If you don't support them when times are rough, you aren't worthy of supporting them when they're doing well.
Or as a swedish proverb says "Love me when I least deserve it, because that's when I need it the most."
