HE asked them many times to pull it
when his father was alive and ill with cancer. They kind of ignored him. His father died, and they still did not pull it. He got pissed.
Also, when he retired as a player, why didn't they pick him up instead of LA and then new jersey.
Sounds a little pretencious to ask to have your jersey retired at a certain time. Although I understand that he would of liked for his father to have been there, its the club that bestows the honor to the player, not vice versa.
