Err, it's not an unfounded generalization. It's a generalization founded in the realities of the period between the second and third war. The orcs who entered Azeroth during the second war, especially late in the second war, saw their leaders engage in a series of elaborate and unsuccessful gambits, ultimatelyosing the war and the dark portal. They then succumbed to a lethargy brought on by withdrawal from fel magics. In came a daring and brave young warrior, Doomhammer's son, Durotan's student, able to command the respect of Hellscream.He led a broken and dejected group of imprisoned or scattered refugees in a successful bid for freedom and spearheaded the foundation of a new city-state and a return to a sense of both racial and nationalistic pride.It's no more controversial to say that Thrall has the respect of his peers who lived through this period than it would be to say that America hailed Washington or Eisenhower as war heroes after the American revolution or World War II respectively.It's very fair to say that this is the default attitude, and that those who disagree will tend to be in the minority, at least within this demographic.
