Jacobs giving some of that wealth to charity is nice but it also comes with the condition that interested parties are meant to know about it. It needs to be taken for what it's worth. JC in one of his parables pointed out that an old lady giving only a small amount--but a real sacrifice for her was giving much more than a wealthy man giving a much greater amount but with no sacrifice to his lifestyle. By the way I'm a non-believer but there is sense in this.

Losing the hockey season is at stake here. Jacobs seems willing to lose the season just to see if he can force the NHLPA to capitulate. Charity giver or not--the last minute deals to secure some of his biggest assets strikes me as hypocritical--smells bad anyway. Strange to me how anyone can defend him.
You dont see how anyone can defend him when hes being called "a ****** person?"

Regarding the Forbes article, read BrooklynRangersFan's post. If you dont believe their numbers thats fine - next step is using your brain.
