As much as I despise Vince for what HE did to us I can still recognize that he put our franchise on the map for a few years and generate more excitement than this team has enjoyed since.
But it wasn't just The Decision. It was his comments after about being from Akron and about taking names and shit..... the guy was a moron to not let it go and just go about his business. His arrogance was unfathomable. That shizz breeds hate.... He brought it upon himself. Even after the final he still was intent on making everyone know that he's still fighting the battle with his opposing fans. Why is that even coming into the discussion..... just ignore it. He just can't or refuses to.
