Something I have never been able to understand is when people enjoy "calling" bad things on the horizon.

For example, Coco comes into a game and someone promptly says "We're gonna lose! I know it!" Why do people find an inherent need to tell everyone that they think the game is going down the tubes?

I get frustrated with Cordero as much as anyone, but am I the odd man out who actually hopes he does well?

I'm confused, maybe someone who seems to prey on disaster can help me out with this one?
