While I would strongly disagree with both of these statements, I understand the frustration with the parade of goodbye tributes that have made 2014 into one giant Farewell Jeter tour.
I understand the ire, but I find the criticisms as unconvincing as the allegations that Jeter murmurs his own name during oral trysts.
Not since Broadway Joe had the women of the five boroughs gone into Beatles-on-The-Ed-Sullivan-Show ecstatics for one of its athletes.

Hell, even Tom Brady has admitted to man-crushing on Derek Jeter.
