Look man, I'm not trying to talk you into liking Drew Sharp. I honestly don't care if you like him or not. I loathe Mitch Albom, there's nothing that anybody's going to say to make me like his articles, so I understand where you're coming from. But what I would say is this. A) Being a ****, while irksome, doesn't mean he's got a bias against the team. I know lots of dicks who are fans of the team. The two things don't go together. B) As I've already said, 90% of fans don't like Drew because 90% of U of M fans LOVE that team...and he says bad things about the team. It doesn't mean those things aren't true. It just means they have an emotional investment in something he doesn't.
It's like how pissed off parents would get if you criticized their kids. It's not that their kids are infallible. It's just that nobody likes hearing negativity directed at something they love. But as a life long Michigan fan, I can say honestly, that a sober (and therefore negative since the team is bad) assessment of U of M football is not only justified but may actually be beneficial in the long run.
I really think you are missing my point on him. I really don't care if anyone says something bad about a team that is doing bad.heck I will say Michigan is not doing well and that they suck sometimes..just like with the wings...but to do it even when they do good...and to never really say anything good about a team much less the whole state of Michigan just is over board to me and just makes him look like a trolling d-bag.
