I don't see the issue either, its not an issue for Eakins and he's saying its not an issue. He's saying the feedback is fair and reasonable and expects it. He's stated that he would hate coaching in a market that lacked this type of passion. He's saying the same fanbase heckling at a gaspump might be buying him gas at some future point (hey he can think that but highly unlikely...)
You mustn't have kids replacement. It's one thing for fans to come at him, entirely different for kids to come at his kids. It's tough enough being a child today- they should feel safe and comfortable going to school. I have a little one- and I can't imagine how hard it is for him to see his daughter having a hard time. Kids do not have the thick skin of adults and take everything personally.

As for his comments, when he's saying he doesn't want to coach where the fanbase isn't passionate- he is referring to himself. He can handle fans coming at him- his kids- entirely different matter---I feel for him. It's hard to send your kid off knowing they'll be teased and picked on.
