nuggets is right, youre just not gonna get it i guess.
(1) You're telling a Red Sox fan that he's not going to, "get" how Red Sox fans feel (or should feel) about Damon going to the Yankees. Huh.
(2) You're relying upon Nuggets for backup. Huh huh.
You can separate out players and teams. Plenty of Packers fans were plenty angry with Javon Walker; ditto for Eagles fans and TO. Even when they were playing for their team.
It doesn't come down to: plays for my team = someone I like and cheer for. I've liked Damon for the past few years. He helped us win a championship. And he didn't leave the Sox in a bad way. They didn't pursue him. They didn't make him feel wanted. And he didn't try to play them. He just signed somewhere else.
Besides, Steinbrenner has signed about 25% of the 2004 championship team by now. Am I supposed to have a hit list of, "I can't like you any more"
Now, to go start a thread about how White Sox fans should feel about the fact that their home stadium is in a war zone......
