How I think fans should feel now that MJD is back **EDIT

MJD is back, and based on the childish bickering in the comments for the press conference post, I think there is a lot of confusion as to how fans should feel right now. On the one hand, you have the people that realize the MJD is a phenomenal player, and are very happy with MJD returning. On the other hand, you have those who feel betrayed by MJD and think he is too much of a diva, and so he is no longer deserving of the fans liking him. The way I see it, both sets of people have valid points, and the ultimate stance fans should take is a fusion of the two opposing viewpoints.

I think that every single Jaguar fan should be very excited that MJD decided to return and wish him all the success in the world. No reason to want to trade him any more than you would have wanted to see him traded in the past. Truth be told, he is still a Jacksonville Jaguar, and nothing has really changed with regard to how we should view him and his role with the Jacksonville Jaguars.

HOWEVER, I definitely think that the fans can view him quite differently when it comes to MJD the human being. MJD, having claimed this holdout was all him, and not his agent, basically came out and said "I am a massively stubborn idiot who refused the come to terms with the fact that he had no leverage." MJD made a stupid decision, that is almost undeniable. It was a very understandable decision, but nonetheless it was not a wise one to make, and the fact that he chose to keep holding out once the team came out and said they would not give him the new deal proves that MJD is stupid, stubborn, and selfish.

So truth be told, I think it is fair for every single Jaguar fan to have a worse view of MJD, but under no circumstances is it really a logical view to not cheer him on and hope he doesn't continue putting up those elite numbers for the Jaguars.

**EDIT: I do not know if the 14 minute clip on jaguars.com is the entire press conference, but I just made my way through the entire clip, and I am really confused by what people have against what MJD said. He was honest and said exactly what I wanted him to say. He wants his money and will not fully be happy until he gets it. If he said anything else, it would have been a lie and I would have been upset.

As I think it over some more, I am not sure I am going to think a whole lot less of MJD than I did beforehand. He made a bad decision, but an understandable one, and while he is stupid not to have realized that Khan wouldn't budge, he still knew to show up early enough so as not to become a distraction to this team.
