Well, that's an important distinction, but I don't know how relevant. I can think of a lot of examples of cities in pro-sports trashing their biggest stars, but most of them have a successful or rich history that pre-dates the internet era.

Lots of star players getting the same or worse treatment. Mats Sundin comes to mind. Many more examples in the NBA and NFL.

And again, it assumes that the internet and call-in radio shows are representative or impacting Naslund.
