Is This McIlroy Hating The Start Of A Bad Guy Good Guy Thing With Jordan Spieth?

I was surprised yesterday at the overall reaction to the news that Rory McIlroy had injured his ankle.  There was actually a lot of criticism of Rory; the general jist of which went "What the hell was he doing playing soccer anyway? He should be looking after himself and preparing for a Major. Sure playing a game like that he was asking to get injured."

Then we had the Fox News Anchor calling him a "leprechaun" on air and saying she "hated him" just to top it off.

I'm trying get a handle on all this new hating on McIlroy.  The only way I can figure it is that the same knockers are on the other hand lauding Jordan Spieth and his achievements. It's like there's now another option now to Rory McIlroy, a fallback plan, and like always happens in the media, one of them has to become the bad guy and one the good guy. I can hear the panel saying "Oh Jordan wouldn't be foolish enough to risk injury playing soccer...he's too classy for that and understands he has history at his feet."

That is bullshit.

Of course it is absolutely nothing to do Jordan Spieth but that's just way the media works.  Once it's safe in the knowledge there is another hero coming, the first hero gets his legs cut from under him. And not in a soccer sense.

The only way to see the Rory McIlroy injury is not as a golf fan, but as someone who has no interest in the game.  Yes Rory is a super dooper golfer and lives his life in the glare of a camera, but off the golf course he's just an ordinary lad.  A 26 year old who craves more than anything to live like one of the boys for an hour every now and then. Someone who is just normal at everything that is not golf, but dreams that he's Wayne Rooney on a astro soccer pitch with his mates.

Soccer had nothing to do with Rory's injury.  Soccer just provided the social vehicle for hanging around with his friends, all wearing the same simple jerseys, with the tens of millions of dollars left in the dressing room.

Rory McIlroy is not a golfing machine who exists for our viewing pleasure despite what many people and his sponsors think.  There's more to life than money, you cant buy real friends and true happiness.
