I understand them being angry at the situation. Doug Baldwin, one of the best WRs in Seattle franchise history (#2 in TDs, only second to Steve Largent) retired after only 7 years. It sucks and Hawks fans are upset (including me) but nobody is angry at him for it. He put himself through hell trying to play through injuries for a long time and itís understandable.

So why do Indy fans have to be babies about it and boo him? Doug even composed a farewell letter with notable snubs in it, and heís still forgiven. Is it because Doug was part of a more successful team, and helped give Seattle one championship and almost a second one?
