I don't think anyone is downplaying his disease, but if it limits his ability to play and he can't be effective when he does, teams will take someone who can over him.

Would you rather have a career threatened limited Ritola or a healthy Miller?

Teams take the latter every time, its not different than an injury prone player.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, cause I really do feel sorry for the guy, but sports are a business. Take the Titans for example, they just fired their offensive coordinator who has cancer.

Its not like Ritola is out of a job though, he's just going to the AHL until he can sort things out.
