Oh no, I wasn't referring to you in that post. There is one particular person (whose name I won't mention) who does it all the time, though, and it's pretty ridiculous.
The problem with Sammy having been named Whipping Boy as soon as Lang stared packing is that now those who bash Sammy for fun and those who are calling them as they see them are saying the same things and it's hard to tell who just likes to be mean and who is being honest. With Sammy right now, reality isn't nice. He hasn't been performing well.
I just feel for the guy since he was projected to bomb before he hit training camp. For that reason, I'd love to see him excel and prove everyone wrong. It's those decades of mental conditioning as a Lions fan in Vikings/Packers territory. You tend to root for the underdog.
Heck, the way things are going right now, I just want to see someone start excelling.
My money on the board pledge:

An additional $5 for each hat trick scored by a player after whom I have named a hamster.
An additional $10 if any of the above goals is the GWG goal that gives us the series win.
An additional $50 if it is the GWG that wins us the Cup.
$5 for a SO by Jimmy.
