Looks like that's exactly what Afr has gotten, to me.

Now, I do have several questions that are not answered in the articles quoted. Did Afr file _personal_ bankruptcy, or did the corporate entity that owns the Jackals file _corporate_ bankruptcy? Or did the Jackals themselves file _corporate_ bankruptcy? Which entity is bankrupt would affect what the effects of this action are.

Also, if corporate, was this Chapter 11 re-organization or Chapter 7 liquidation?

So, before we jump the gun to "NO HOCKEY THIS YEAR", let's get some more facts.
Heres what he filed:

Chapter 11.
