All I have heard all year - except for the arguing over Ron is - Poor Reggie, a shame that this has to happen to him in his last year... poor poor Reggie.
The man has a contract he is walking away from.
The man can still play.
The man is by no means being pushed aside - quite the contrary, he is being asked to stay.
This is Reggie's choice - one that you can agree with or disagree with.
But no one should feel sorry for him for this happening to him in his last year. Because it does not have to be and he could come back to a contender next year.
If you want to feelo sorry for him for the George Irvine/Dick Versace/Bo Hill years then fine - it is a shame that he has no ring.
But do NOT cry for him because this is his last year. It is his choice. One that quite frankly, I wish he would reconsider.
