That was a very different era. Players were treated like adults back then. Head Coaches had carte blanc to discipline players on the sideline during the game on live TV. If the team sucked, they heard about it. If the fans booed, it was because the team sucked. Blaming fans that have shelled out significant cash because they booed and are done with the "wait for it" approach is just plain old bullshit. I guess Saleh would be happier with 10,000 homers in the stands cheering 3 and outs while 50,000 empty seats chanted positive things.
