Texas Tech fans are bigger brats than Adam James


Probably the most annoying thing about the Mike Leach mess is the reactions of his supporters. They've basically made Adam James and his father, ESPN analyst Craig James, into their whipping boys. Adam James in particular is getting his manhood called into questioned.
Adam James may turn out to be a bit of a brat, but the bigger brats are the Leach Supporters who are using the younger James as the target of their protests over their fallen idol's firing. This includes booing him as he entered and exited the field while surrounded by "body guards." Or selling shirts on e-bay that say "Real men aren't afraid of the dark."
The level of maturity in Leach's supporters has to be called into question. Blindly accepting Leach's side of the story shows severe lack of critical thinking skills. It's obvious many of them have not considered whether in a time where concussions are a big enough mainstream issue to warrant Congressional hearings if Leach's treatment of James was a logical move.
It looks harder and harder if Adam James is going to be able to continue attending Texas Tech in this environment (much less play football there). Leach's supporters have shown a lack of maturity in handling the issue logically as oppose to going after the James family like the rowdy, reckless kinds of pirates that Mike Leach likes.

You really think that people are BLINDLY following him? The Red Raiders are the only ones who know what's actually going on because the mainstream media are siding/leaning towards the James family because of his father's past. Only an idiot wouldn't be able to see that.

I can definitely see how it may be difficult for Adam James to continue playing football in the "hostile" environment at Texas Tech. However that may be a blessing in disguise since it appears little Adam is more cut out for selling girl scout cookies than playing football. How dare those coaches move princess Adam to third string! Daddy showed them didn't he?
