What's different then about Smyth that makes fans forgive him for things like that?
If you actually try to answer that question you'll probably get some insight into why fans get on other players in the same situation (I don't know the answer myself, but I would think there's a least a tinge of the notion that Smyth, without a doubt, does whatever it takes to win, demonstrates that every game and as a result gets mulligans when he has a lapse like that.)
