The irony is - don't many if not most sports fans want precisely such an atmosphere - players in constant fear of being benched or cut for making a mistake? How many times have we heard fans screech, "Cut him!" or "Bench him!" after a receiver drops a pass, or a kicker misses a kick, or a quarterback throws an interception? And yet you can see how something that sounds good in theory actually doesn't work well in real life.
