Quoted for truth. If we are let down by these people then how did we get so pumped up about them to begin with? Because he drive to the net better than most? Kinda a reflection on us and our values.

Now that I think about it, Mark Chipman probably deserves the most hero-worship out of any of the Jets. Educated man who runs his own (wealthy) company and made enough money to buy an NHL team. That's who I want my son to be like.
