Ol' Tom is getting man-handled and he don't like it. He got popped in the mouth in the 1st quarter and looked like he sprayed blood on the ref while complaining. Got the first Un sp con flag of his career. But don't count the dog out...
This is such a typical response from the uninformed and happy-to-be-ignorant.
Instead of recognizing that two exceptional teams are playing and one has to lose, this particular writer blatantly stated that since one team was losing (at that point in the game), they were looking BAD. (Not dignifying his intentional misspelling of an expletive.)
This is the same we hear on TNet all the time. There's no patience for the development of players, the psychology of the game, the occasional "off" game: It has to be perfect every time.
And consistently perfect is hard to pull off, even if you're a salesperson, a doctor, a teacher, a student, or an athlete.
But, let's just continue and enable the culture of attach and demean.
