I know you hate everything about that message, but I don't see it as nearly as toxic as you think.
You think a blue chip prospect, or any prospect for that matter, thinks that when they're 38 yrs old they'll have a retirement home, so take the demotions to Grand Rapids with a smile because, hey, when you're 38 yrs old and broken down you'll always have a spot in Detroit?
