To me, it was a slap in the face, turn your back on the team and it's fans kind of a deal by doing such a thing. It's not like they slaughtered his family or anything. They tried to play hardball and it backfired.
Well, the first slap in the face came from management; don't forget that. Also, I'm sure that the way that it was taken by the fans wasn't the way that he meant it to be taken. His taking the C back after he saw the reaction bears that out. He reacted impulsively to the slap in his face in one of the few ways that he could, obviously without thinking it through enough. Can you really blame him or hold a poor, impulse decision (that he, later, rescinded) against him for even 5 days, much less 5 years?
