It's called being a professional. It's one of the reasons why he is respected in the sport. He isn't Terrell Owens, Ozzie, Zambrano, etc.How about Jeter never having the fortitude to say what he really thinks. All you get from him are the usual cliche answers to every question.
As mentioned, you hate a person for something he has no control over?How about the fact that he has won several gold gloves, but yet rates as one of the worst fielding starting shortstops in the game in most seasons.
No doubt the team he played for helped get those rings. You hate him though for being on a good team built to win?How many "rings" would he have if he was on the Royals?
I seriously think you're looking for reasons to hate him..... It's been awhile so I don't remember everything from 2004, but what did Jeter do that directly hurt the Yankees in that collapse? What would you have him do as captain to stop the collapse?The second year he was the Captain of the Yankees (2004), Jeter aka "Captain Colapse" presided over the worst colapse in pro sports playoff history, blowing a 3-0 lead and losing 4 straight games to the Red Sox, the first and only time any team ever blew a 3-0 lead and lost a 7 game baseball series.
As stated above, you're looking for reasons to hate him. He could do a lot worse to show his excitement over something.... He could dance like some do.....The Fist Pump.
