You're right but I think what has happened here is that we are all sick of the mediocre journalism coming out of what is supposed to be the main source of Flyers info. We get one-sided takes on everything with little substance and so we discuss among ourselves to get larger perspectives.

Half of these journalists don't even consider the fans' opinions on what we want to hear about and then turn around and insult us in a public forum.

It's a culmination of things - she just happened to make a petty comment at the wrong time. You object yourself to criticism as a public member - whether you are the athlete or the journalist. If you can't take it, you are in the wrong field. It doesn't serve anyone any good by feeding into it and deciding to consider the commentary only when you want to insult us.
