Stating his opinion as fact. It is wrong to tweet at recruits. That is dumb. But calling for a guy to get benched doesn't mean you are a horrible fan. A player may in fact need to be benched. Fans have different personalities. Some fans are content win or lose. Some are a little more emotional and react to every play. Some are in between. It is not Jeff Woody's job to say who is and who is not a 'real' fan or a 'good' fan.
If you read between the lines when Matt Campbell and Steve Prohm speak, when they talk about ignoring what people say, it's not just reporters or opposing fan bases that they want their players to tune out. It's also the idiot upset "fan" that tries to address the teams and players directly via social media. There's absolutely nothing to be gained by having those people as part of the fan base and I'm not particularly inclined toward toleration of them.
