doesn't mean we feel the same about him as a person.
I think it is a fair assumption that comments people make about players generally refer to their performance on the playing surface and do not refer to them personally, unless otherwise stated.
Yeah I understand that is likely what they meant but I still think there are better ways to refer to his play on the field.

If someone said "Koch's play is garbage" I'd be fine with that. But no matter their intentions saying "Koch is garbage" sounds pretty ugly.
