You will sometimes, actually. A pitcher struggling to find the zone is more likely to get cheered than bood. Getting on Bryz last year seemed to become a trend for bandwagon fans as much as it was for his haters. That's why an NHL goalie and an NFL QB are the two toughest positions to play. Anywhere from 20-50 saves/passes per game, and one bad goal/interception and that player is the scapegoat.
