I want the team I root for to win because I enjoy watching them more when they do. If they don't win, and we somehow end up getting a great pick as a result, that's super.
But my rooting for them to win OR lose doesn't make them do either. I guess if I'm at loud enough at Conseco, they may feed off of the positive energy, but what impact does my rooting for or against them have when I'm sitting on my couch?
You think rooting against my favorite team is being a team player? What are you talking about?
