I don’t agree with the idea that the "fans are turning on Roy."
The majority of the criticism I see is not directed at bRoy the person: Most of us are being realists and we simply want to WIN. Since when does an NBA team sacrifice winning a playoff series for history or loyalty? Or to spare the personal feelings of a player? Or to prevent a player from crying?!?
Also, a lot of this drama has been created and/or stirred up by John Canzano, Glen Beck style, or Lars Larson, (a guy that Canzano allowed to walk into his radio show one day and go off on an impromptu foam-flecked angry rant against Obama one day).
Just because you can dig into the muck and find a few horrible evil comments directed towards Roy, doesn’t mean you should compile those, spread ‘em out and stick them right under Brandon’s nose, and shine a national media spotlight on said comments just to further yer career… Unless you are the Glenn Beck of sports media.
Canzano is just as bad, or worse than, the immature fan-comments wishing for Roy’s death; if Canzano had never spotlighted those comments and showed them to Roy, during a pivotal and emotional time of his career and during the PLAYOFFS, no less, Roy, and the team, and the fans, would have all been better off.
And then Canzano has the gall to paint himself as some kind of saintly defender of BRoy. In a few years when Roy grows up and thinks back on these events, he’ll realize what a self-serving tool Canzano was to play Roy’s emotions and fan the flames like this.
Shut up Canzano, yer not helping anyone but yerself.
