Anyone know any studies on the of sports fans? Especially when the team is bad - staying loyal to an awful team, believing the league is out to get them instead of accepting they are bad, along those lines.

Watching yesterday's game and do fans realize they have little to no impact on free throws? Just watch interviews with players, they don't notice the chanting, signs, etc. And in the case of Giannis, he's already bad at FT, you're not making him worse. Is it like pushing the button while waiting for an elevator or light to change? Just need to do something to feel like you have some control or influence when you really don't?
