Exactly. It's not my issue, and it's not even media-worthy.

In fact, it's odd that this lazy media story is rolled out whenever the team stinks. Roloson and his kid in 2007. Penner a couple years later. Booing (oh dear me, Mr. Hall!) at the end of the 2nd against New Jersey this year. I'm sure I'm missing a few examples. All of a sudden the fans are stereotyped as snarling wolverines. The team's dismal performance is forgotten.

Welcome to the world of sports entertainment.
