It was Thomas who started this by without provocation declaring that he was going to take the season off.
So he's had his season (or most of it) off now and is ready to come back (hypothetically), and his decision didn't affect the team in the least. He likely will still be our starter upon resuming play again! He would be playing his first game at the same time everyone else is playing their first game, so do we the fans still have anything to hold against him? Yes, I'll admit I am one of his biggest supporters for sure....
