IMO, If you want to talk about the incident you need to stop blaming just Ference and include the others involved: Mike Komisarek, Brad Boyes, Matt Stajan and some HR consultant and leave the personal agenda crap out of it.
Not saying you are btw.
Good point. Fair. From the reports, it certainly wasn't just Ference.
Bothers me still though since in everything I read about Kelly, he just seemed like a pragmatic problem solver kind of guy. Of course it was all just words and who knows how he would have handled acrimonious negotiations, but I liked his approach.
Short on bluster and philosophy and more tuned into working with ownership as a partnership. I'd like to think he actually understood the power dynamic between ownership and the union. Could have avoided a lot of this mess. Maybe, maybe not.
