2011 + 1 game is a much larger sample size than 3 games. I don't care if it's a new season. Inertia is a nag. That said, some people need to realize that blowing off steam is part of being a fan.
Really it should be 2011*+1 game since he was injured for all of that season. And I suppose you're right, but for me all my steam is blown off over the offseason and by the March I'm nothing but excited (while still trying to be realistic) about the new season.
