A reasonable position. Personally I'm willing to let it slide presuming that even if he's not performing at a level we'd prefer that he'll be a solid veteran presence on a team loaded with young talent.
However it's not my money and it pleases most of the
fans so it's not a huge issue.
I don't think many have noticed but RJ is the new Jody Shelley.
I've been critical of the lack of criticism RJU receives, but even I didn't find it necessary to resort to name calling. Thankfully, we have some who can set us straight, right, you cranky old galoot?
