Booing, completely classless according to some Cardinals fans

Was reading the game thread from Viva El Birdos from yesterday.  Of course there was rejoicing when Dempster gave up the 3 run HR, but the commentary following regarding the booing of Dempster and defense of Zambrano's comments were quite appalling.  made for interesting reading anyway.  Apparently it's OK to boo Kip Wells off the field after getting knocked around the other day, but not OK for showing disappointment regarding your closer's failure to close out an important game like yesterday or to boo your star pitcher ($90mil) for not showing up to pitch the last 5 starts.  As discussed on here many places, booing certainly has it's place and is certainly the right of the fans, when done appropriately so.  Interesting commentary from the game thread as posted below:

Dumpster hasn't blown a save in months...
...so naturally flub fans boo him to the dugout.

Flubs fans are right there with mets, yanks and bosox fans as the least classy in all baseball

Didn't he blow one
right as he came off the disabled list in the last couple of weeks?

Too bad I wasn't at home today watching the game.  Dang.

I know a several nice ones, . . .
. . . fine people and  fairly good baseball fans, but this statement of yours, IJR, is too often true:

"Flubs fans are right there with mets, yanks and bosox fans as the least classy in all baseball"

It was almost enough to make you feel sorry for Zambrano the other day. Earlier this week I had to explain that mess to my nephew up by Chicago. I found myself not completely disagreeing with Z's initial expressions of being hurt and betrayal by the fans. I found myself completely disagreeing with the part of his next-day apology in which Z said Cubs fans were the best fans in the world.

Almost, but not quite, sorry for Zambrano.
