You know those situations aren't even remotely comparable. Gronk retiring was not a surprise, he almost retired last year. Luck retired, out of the blue, in the middle of preseason and the new literally broke during a game. It was a shock. It is a shock.Was there a lot of booing of Gronk I missed at the parade?
There’s plenty of things wrong with every fan base but I disagree that this means we can just assume specific fan reactions are all transferable. The reactions happen in the context of the relationship of the player and the franchise to the fans...and some are better than others for various reasons.
Colts fans suck and Irsay is a bad dude, but I understand their reaction and the booing, because it was booing out of sadness and shock, not rage. But mostly shock, I bet.
