Could he simply have think about it in private? Sure.Are those comments bad enough to deserve the kind of reactions you would expect from a bunch of hysterical schoolgirls? No.
Because let's not lie to ourselves , what I see in this thread is very similar to how a schoolgirl would react to anything that piss her off.How about a little emotionnal control?
Of course Cole's behavior isn't the most sympathetic at the moment , but reacting that strongly to it is juvenile at best.
Could the same emotional control be expected of our 4million dollar man, or just to those fans posting on a discussion board?
Having an opinion on something doesn't make someone an emotional wreck.
