And I totally agree with his comments, but when the public gets to hear comments like that, it means he is losing his team even more, not gaining them.
Seriously? No, really. Is that a joke? What if it was the other way around? You'd say the same frickin' thing. This kid can't win with you guys. That comment is a hilarious, yet abundantly accurate view of many fans completely illogical placement of Alex into the lose-lose scenario where nothing he does can be seen in a positive light.
For the kid's sake, and for our team, I hope he shuts everyone up with a stellar season, eliminating any future comments like that.
