I wonder if this has ever happened in another sports fanbase before, or if the RF Fans have finally done something original for once.Very very very simple.
RF fans (just the fanatical ones) force themselves to denigrate RF's 30s career to prove that this is the weak era. That's all it is.
They are so hung up on everyone declaring 2002-2006 Weak Era that they desperately try to fight fire with fire. Trying hard to boomerang these facts right back. Or at the two players who have de-GOATed the GOAT in the last decade.
Instead of ENJOYING RF's great improvements and applauding them, they keep putting him down.
Yes, it's ironic and plain silly. They put down their own hero - for his own benefit!
