Jerry Seinfeld has a famous bit where he says fans don’t care about the person they root for the jersey. That’s typically the case.

Reading the fan submissions of "Why Your Team Sucks" is Exhibit A

Oh yeah, some of those stories really highlight the bottom of the barrel in terms of fandom.

The fan submissions he posts in the WYTS, or the emails posted after the fact from people bothered by WYTS?

Because the latter tends to be far worse.

Does anyone else feel like the media is treating Luck retiring in the preseason differently than Ricky Williams retiring in the preseason?

People crucified Ricky, called him all the worst kinds of things, for “selfishly” trying to leave football while he was still young. A lot more people seem to be understanding of Luck.

Maybe I’m reading too much into it.

Different climate most likely. It's warmer in Miami versus Indy.

Really though, media has softened their stance on the "tough it out" mentality and mental health in general.
Open your heart.
