You kinda had to know him to really get him, and some folks didn't care to look any deeper than the surface. That's just how people are.
Some people have personalities like that: easy to like, but also very capable - usually without meaning to - of rubbing people the wrong way.
I've said for a while I think Cam is one of those people. Smitty probably is too, but for different reasons.
Bottom Line: Big fat hairy deal. As long as his teammates like him, I don't really care who else does or doesn't.
