    The team benefits by having passionate fans. The thing with passion, though, is that it sometimes gets expressed in less-than-ideal ways. Pro athletes should know this, and should also be pro at expecting and dealing with it.

    If Joe Ingles is so worried about players feelings maybe he should reconsider his relentless trash talk which could be construed as workplace bullying ?? After all the opponent he is belittling and dehumanising in front of both his teammates and a crowd of 18000 could suffer some kind of emotional trauma ?? I mean the guys he’s hitting 3 pointers on aren’t trying to play badly, they’re trying but they can’t win every contest ...

    Tbh, guys like Ingles get the greatest respect cause everyone thinks they're so chilled and cool.
    He is definitely trying to pretend like he hasn't changed etc over the years.. But even watching him carry-on to the refs every friggin time he drives the ball says he is pretty full of himself these days.

    Not that it should matter - but I found his comments so unAustralian as well. I hope he is booed when introduced next game. Get his head back to what it use to be.

    If Joe or the team in general is supposed to be not so thin skinned about booing....doesn't that work the other way around too? Maybe some fans on here shouldn't be so thin skinned about Joe or someone else on this team making/showing their disapproval of the "fandom" playing out in the stands.

    I don't get to watch the games in the arena but I'm sure if the team was sitting in my living room they wouldn't have liked my commentary :). However, what Joe said in his tweet doesn't bother me either...

    That last line was obviously a joke.

    So you didn't get any of the humor in my post, either?

    But that line about people's little lives was arrogant and ugly. This isn't a big issue, the booing or his not liking being booed or the fact that he outed himself as thinking he's that much bigger and better than the people there to watch him. It did sort of shatter my previous image of him, but not that it matters, really. I was never going to be his friend. I watch the guy play basketball. He's good at it. If he's arrogant then he's like many of the other people that are really good at basketball.

    What self righteous nonsense. We boo opposing teams' players until our throats bleed. But when it's our team, it's just so dehumanizing. :rolleyes:

    Don't play like *** and go down 21 in the first quarter, at home, against a terrible team, and you won't get boo'd.

    I listened to Locke's analogies about booing on his podcast and they're so infantile. Booing professional athletes is akin to bullying the shoeshine boy at a country club, lol - get the **** out of here.

    Naos put it perfectly in an earlier post - Jazz have as many emotionally invested fans as any other franchise Those emotions are not going to run one way 100% of the time. Does it sometimes come from a place of bad form or ignorance (like Wednesday night)? Sure.

    But I can tell you as a guy who has been to NY Yankee games, Philadelphia Eagle games, NY Ranger games, Boston Bruin games, The Jazz are wayyyy ahead of the curve when it comes to positive re-enforcement from their fans.

    Booing at a single player is a much uglier look I think than booing at the whole team because of lack of effort. The latter is common and should not be taken personal like Joe did, heck I even remember the Jazz causing a few boos to come out at other courts last year because they were dismantling the opposing team. It's part of sports and the fans passionately expressing how they feel about their team because they care. Would fans not showing up be better? I doubt mgmt would prefer that.

    Utah Jazz fans are generally quite savvy, boos were coming from a quite visible lack of effort on defense which is inexcusable at the pro level.

    This.

    Also, refs get booed way more than players. Like every game all game, **** em though right? Poor millionaire bball players though.

    Are you ok with booing bad calls by the refs?
    (I know you will say you are not)

    I think many people saying we shouldn't boo the players and that booing is stupid would probably boo the refs.

    Could booing just be a form of criticizing them when they are performing poorly at their work?

    I get criticized if I perform poorly at my job. I could even be disciplined, suspended, or fired depending on how poorly I do. Am I being dehumanized when I disciplined for sucking at my job?

    Snowflake culture is ruining this country.

    Booing is not hurting anybody

    Neither is calling out the fans who did

    Grow up...
