Is it Ethical to Root for a Team Yet Not Support, Agree with or Condone One of its Players?

As Jesus makes clear in the parable of the weeds and the wheat (Matthew 13:24-30, 36-43), good and evil mingle closely in our broken world. We are always wrestling with the mixture of good and evil in ourselves individually and in our human institutions and organizations. It might be impossible to find a team with no skeletons in its closet. On some level, to support any team or group is to support its own best version of itself, even if that is something it is still striving to become. On the playing field, this means cheering for your team whether they win or lose. Off the field, it takes on added meaning.
