athletic clowns for our amusement
. We boo stand-up comedians off stage, or give actors bad reviews, for the same reason we boo players that suck.
I wouldn't make it any more complicated than it needs to be.
Haha, love it.
Booing your own team is kinda like your parents giving you **** when you screwed up. I have no problem with it.
As for booing Dion, I wouldn't do it. I understand why people would, they might feel he "wronged" us in some way. I don't think he did.
