Yea, and people got all over him for it. He electrified the Cincinnati market back in those days and gained listeners and interest. If you listen to him year round, he does that from time to time. He'll pick on a fan base for something he probably doesn't have much conviction for and he does it to generate listeners. It's low-hanging fruit to get more listeners but it works.
He picks on Cam Newton incessantly.... Cam is as elite as it gets IMHO. Same thing as Votto, or at least a comparable situation and fan base.
