Update and More on JR

Meeting are still going on at this hour...looks like some more late nights ahead....good thing I pay myself myself OT....wait a second....

Anyway, More on JR...

People are really overreacting to JRs rant...The clips you've seen were taken out of context as will be shown clearly in a story that Tim Panaccio is working on for tomorrow's Inquirer.

I would like to say a few words about JR...This guy plays for the fans more than any other guy I know. In Philly we've seen him in play-off games with wired jaws and deep grade concussions..."spoiled players" don't act like JR.

He has also been one of the most active players out there. JR made several proactive attempts to get the puck dropped. He was one of several who were predicting where we'd be now, but he actually did stuff about it as well. The unfortunate thing is that all that stuff has to be off the record. Trust me if it was on the record, there would be ten times the good emails heading to JR as there are bad ones now. And you would now why he personally would take offense to personal criticisms.

It wasn't until recently, a few months ago, when replacement players were taken off the table, that most of his fellow players got active as well...and rumor has it that the recent activity of the players, is why we are on the verge of a settlement...

Also, one quote i haven't seen from the PC was when JR said, "The players won in 94, the owners in 05...when do the fans win?"
