    It's a matter of respecting your old fanbase.

    It's different if you're a role player. Russell Shepard did the same, but it's not like he had any more options on the market, so I get it. It's not revenge, simply signing the best offer to continue your career. That's fine. I never said anything about Russell because I'd do the same in his situation. Totally understandable and, in fact, it was the only rational move.

    But it's not the same with GMC.

    Gerald had THREE more offers. Browns, Ravens (similar deal to Carolina's, and he was going to sign there, according to... well, himself!), Carolina (not in the picture until the Bucs unveiled Suh's number) and another team that hasn't been made public that had a significantly better offer than any other (although not a contender... that and that the amount was significantly bigger is the only thing that has leaked).

    So it's no the same as Shepard's situation, not at all. And, what makes things worse, he texted two Bucs beat writes about getting revenge as soon as he signed with Carolina, to later deny it as soon as they went public.

    So he's not a bad guy (I'm certain, he's always been one of the nicest guys in the locker room, maybe even too much), but he's acting like a spoiled child. Now deal with the hate coming from Tampa. It's only natural.
