Read some of the posts. They aren't simply discussions about him and his holdout. They're filled with vitriol and a "ha ha, told you so" attitude that shows their motivation.
Look, it's not my plce to tell anyone whether they should like or dislike Michael Crabtree. But let's at least be honest about why he's getting so much attention here. It's not simply because he is a guy the Raiders passed on. It's because there's a hope that he fails, and that hope exists because people are looking to justify the Raiders' decision.
