It happens. A disconnect occurs between fanbase and player, between team and org and player.
A good player RR, didn't care anymore if he was here or gone and everybody at the game noted that. RR got boo'ed off the field easily 10 times in the game. Again this not being some pundits online, this being actual people paying to be at the actual games.
I was there, I was completely disgusted.
You seem to really be hung up on the 36-1 game, yet you fail to memtion that every esks receiver was injured that game. They had to bring guys in days before the game just to field a lineup. That would be like judging an oilers season based on a game where the entire top 6 is injured.
