Did these fans pay attention to the the FSU player taking a swing at Grayson Allen in the play?
Did these fans even watch the entire game and see the FSU player and Grayson playing a very physical game?
Look...my point is if the ACC was even considering suspending Grayson then they would NEED to suspend the FSU player as well. Hey... let's be fair right?!
But the media... needs a villain. The media needs the "bad boy" to talk about. But let's be real.... I have talked to Grayson many times. Grayson Allen is a good person. He has a great personality and is a very likable player. And I for one don't blame Grayson one bit for sticking up for himself in games when opposing players are hacking, punching and attacking him any way they can in an effort to get Grayson out of his game mode. Don't let these opposing players of other teams off the hook! They damn well know Grayson Allen is the "go to" guy for Duke and that's why they attack him. They can't guard him and they get frustrated. Grayson is having an amazing season for Duke.
Maybe the media needs a wake up call and focus on the big picture of that both guys could be at fault...hmmm... Imagine a well rounded and balanced media... lol!
But that will never happen. As with the media, social media, fans and pretty much 99% of the word population.... everybody needs a villain in their life. It breaks down to basic psychology. It's funny that billions of stars can exist in the universe in peace... but not human life. People need a hero and they need a villain in their life to talk about. And guess what... this all rolls over into the sports world too. Sports needs that "bad boy" to talk about.
Well... I guess the athletic white boy at Duke will be the college basketball villain. Imagine that lol! Duke fans have been down this path before... with Redick, with Laettner and now with Grayson Allen.
As a Duke fan myself, I welcome that path. I have said this many times before, and I will say it again. If Duke is hated and being talked about..it's a good thing. It means Duke is relevant in the college basketball world! It's the day Duke is not hated and not talked about is when I will start to worry.
But as we can see with the sports channels, media, and social media... that day is not happening anytime soon.
