Marty handled the losing 80's teams (that were far worse) with class.
Joe always handled losing seasons with class.
There's a difference between pointing out the teams weaknesses and constantly railing on them.
And yes, if I was on the radio, I'd tone down my criticisms.. there is a big difference. Marty is a professional. I'm just some anonymous fan on a message board. What I say means nothing..
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
