It is a perfectly fair critique of KK.
I agree, KK's public statements are fair game, and Hersh is free to criticize him for not doing what he said he would. The thing that bothered me about the article today, and also the one from 2006 that was linked to it, was the tone. Hersh seemed to be deliberately making it personal. Even the headline seemed to be unnecessarily inflammatory. I agree with the poster above who saw a similarity to Hersh's column last year about Hall- he sets himself up as someone who knows better than they do, and then is just mean-spirited and nasty when some pro athlete makes a decision he doesn't like. It's bush league. I used to think he was a pretty decent writer, but now he comes across as a bitter blowhard.
