Yep, Haggerty's business is all about "attracting eyeballs" and he has certainly succeeeded in this case. On HF boards alone, his allegation has attracted >9000 views in a couple of days. This, despite the fact that it is totally unsubstantiated and inconsistent with the Jets stable marketing situation. Not only that, but, unless real intimidation is occurring, WHO CARES whether there are differences of opinion, bluntly expressed, in the board room. Anyone who has actually been in one knows that this happens and anyone who understands Chipman knows that he can handle himself perfectly well, thank you.
Anyone remember Macbeth from high school.? Let's give Shakespeare the final word on this non-story.

" it is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing."

(never thought you'd see a Shakespeare quote on a hockey board, did ya?
