It's good to hear his side of the events that took place... kinda helps close things out properly. Fans certainly deserve to exspress their opinions... but I don't think the average fan understands the impact of continuous negative response to a players confidence.... It's too bad Joey didn't get to experience the positive energy from a winning situation in the D. I just hope the fans give the next guy a fair shake and understand that new systems and new players will make mistakes... I don't know many pro athletes that can perform at a top mental level when his own fans hate on him all the time... even Sheed couldn't handle it in Portland. It's more healthy to start off with lower expectations... not as much of letdown... there's hope for even the worst losing teams... GO TIGERS!
