People are willing to excuse bad games if they are few and far between.

In 09-10 nobody was getting on Miller's case when he had a subpar game. But Vanek was getting the "1M per goal" treatment when he struggled early in those seasons post-contract. "Thomas Vanish" and all, "10M player" and all.

Pommer has been lambasted (wrongfully IMO given his production among RWs relative to league salaries) the past few years.

The real question is when does Stafford get called out...despite his raise he has seemingly been immune so far even though he has had a relatively poor start.

The exception seems to be Jochen Hecht, who can do no right to justify his salary to some poster here.
