Vitali Klitschko versus sportswriters and fans absurd comments

Why do sportscasters in the USA in general choose to portray Vitali Klitchko
in a less than positive manner. He probably has the best KO percentage of any
Heavyweight boxer in history. Vitali is a former WBO and WBC world champion.
When we pause to ponder why it is that they portray Vitali
in such a fashion we can solve the riddle. Vitali is 6' 7" or 6' 8" whichever
height you percieve. He is also fast in the ring, has good hand speed,
hits as hard as his nickname implies (Dr. Iron Fist), and is a man who clearly is thinking
while he is fighting. He exposes his opponents weaknesses and makes them
pay for their mistakes.
What reason could these sport's writers possibly have to condemn
Vitali then?
1.Bias. Bias based on the fighters they support and want to see
become Heavyweight Champion.
2. Fear-they fear that their fighters will
not become World Champions if Vitali stands in their way.
3. Love and obsession-
this group would include all the sport's fans (mostly female) that want to see
Vladimir have all the belts. If I were a biased sport's writer I would want all of them for
an audience to write too.
What would I write about?
All you have to do is read some
of the posts written on the Klitchko forum by fans about why Vitali should not
come back.

What is the answer to this puzzle then?
It is not a sacrifice if both brothers
share the same dream. It is a Sacrifice though if their fans do not share in their dream
but support them in the achievement of their goals anyway.
Isn't that what Easter is all about? Sacrifice?

Happy Easter!
