Yet the writer frames it with this...

A large portion of the fan base have not warmed to Kane. I doubt they ever will. It matters not how productive he is on the ice. Judging by the fierce, intense reaction to his posting of playful pics from Vegas and previous perceptions of the 21-year-old left winger, it's painfully apparent that Kane is going to get crapped on from high heights if he so much as picks his nose in public.
In the most simplistic terms, fans just don't like him.
Is it a large portion of the fan base, really, or just a minute and vocal minority?

So, you mean like when a local blog posts an article written by Toronto-based blogger that suggests fan behavior in Winnipeg is to blame - when that blogger isn't even positioned in Winnipeg to gauge how the Jets fans on the whole feel about Kane? Like that? That sort of stirring the pot, is that a part of the constant barrage of crap and drama to which you refer?
