    So we cannot be upset after a loss? If we were not true fans wouldnt even care if they lost. The players need to take a look in the mirror before the bash the fans.

    simple solution: play better. If not that, play harder.

    Taking on the fans works for every player. Creates nothing but good will and good vibes for the team and program. Good idea.


    Since we are an elite team now, let's go get that One Cyclone Moment.
    Make this one for the ages!

    Fans can be upset after losses...However, harassing players on Twitter after a loss is crossing a line IMO. That's one of the negative aspects of social media...Just my opinion, doesn't mean it is right. There's a difference though.

    Well, people are acting pretty butthurt on here, so Korie might be acting a little butthurt on Twitter. Glass houses everyone...

    Some people do take it a bit far. Attacking an amateur ath-a-lete! They need to go after Fred! He's a man! He's 40!

    Fred should have a no Twitter/Facebook Policy IMO.

    OK the fans do need to show some respect to the players. Ripping them on Twitter does no good.

    Lots of butthurt to go around. It was CFHs worst loss since we needed to win before the next five games.
