I think people are getting the choice to hold on to hope, to unreasonably pull for the team even when the odds are strongly against it, confused with having to like everything about what's happening to/with the team.
Being critical is different from giving up. And it's fairly easy to distinguish those who are critical from those who have waved the white flag and are just watching Dallas now to see what draft pick it gets or if Garrett gets fired, or what disaster might happen next, etc.
