There's a dynamic where the local hero [anywhere] is over hyped, than turned on when their mistaken beliefs don't work out. I remember hearing of how Comrie was loved in Edm. as the face of the new young Oilers and then hated when he couldn't work out a contract with Lowe. In fairness to Oiler fans and media I'm just going on something I heard on the radio, but that's a good example of how public opinion tends to swing too hard both ways, esp. when helped a bit.
