Yeah, winning is fun. But if I can't be proud of the guys I'm cheering for, then I'm not interested. Call me provincial, call me unsophisticated, call me a meathead. All good.

You hit the nail on the head about the attitude of fans in this town, and I'm fine with it.
Ray Lewis is one thing to have a problem rooting for. A guy who occasionally loafs like Rios is another.

Sports are also more important a hobby to some than others. I don't think you win at all costs (see PEDs), but really, really wanting to win and not finding entertainment in losing teams is fine. So is your opinion.
Ridiculousness across all sports:

(1) "You have no valid opinion because you never played the game."
(2) "Stats are irrelevant. This guy just doesn't know how to win."
