Now THAT is how it's done! You can say that New York sports fans are spoiled far beyond the success (or lack thereof, in every case other than the Yankees) of their teams, but don't you dare tell them they give the city a bad rap as a sports town whenever a skilled player has the gall to take his talents elsewhere...
...No seriously, don't fucking tell them that insinuating a Japanese free agent is a coward on the front page of a publication is a fantastic way to scare off future foreign prospects that might be willing to give the states that are quicker to learn how to spell their last name than slander their character a shot. Let's just keep that one between us, because it's hilarious watching Yankees' fans stew every time an athlete dares to make vulnerable a superiority complex that has been passed on from generation-to-less-accomplished-generation and lived further past it's expiration than mold. Consider it our little secret, because the day New York City turns into an environment that breeds rational expectations that fall anywhere near in line with reality is the day that the cycle of self important, counterproductive douchebaggery wears off and players start choosing to play their for reasons others than an ungodly amount of money.
