message 1: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) I usually try to give them the benefit of the doubt initially if the player actually has skills. Sometimes a new team/city changes an attitude. However, I would never buy anything with that players number and if nothing seems to have changed re:attitude, work ethic, etc. I wouldn't cut him/her any slack and would heckle relentlessly. I also would send a message (probably by snail mail because it would more likely be read than one of thousands of e-mails) to the ownership/mgmt letting them know how I felt as a fan. It won't change anything, but it would make me feel better.

Jonathan Lopez | 4728 comments It's tough. I really haven't been able to watch the Yankees with much enthusiasm since they signed A-Rod. He may put up great numbers, but he's just not a person that I can admire. Probably a similar situation for you and Shaq, Charly--no?


Stacia (the 2010 club) (stacia_r) I've been a longtime Cowboys fan and stuck with my team even when TO was on it.

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments This is an excellent question. For a bit there were rumors of Brett F. joining the Bears...that would have been really, really hard. I don't mind crazyass players (e.g. Rodman) but the currently playing equivalents of Roger Clemens...I'd have a hard time with that.

Does the F stand for Fonzie?

Arminius | 1037 comments I continue to hate them unless they play well. I then magically start to like them.
I also like a big star acquisition unless he plays bad, then I hate him.
