Oh yea but as a person I also just felt strongly against the actions of fans in this case. Just because atheletes should be able to weather the criticism doesn't mean I have to accept that people try to bully anonymously and attack others with no repercussions. I dunno it made me think of a guy surrounded by dozens of others who sticks his hands out for some high fives like a dunce after some lame taunt. Mind you I am the furthest thing from a fan of this player right now and his signing in general.
