I always thought that Jermaine was a class act. He was a good voice for the team, and like it or not, the guy put out a lot of himself for the franchise, city, fans, etc. He loved it all.
As for the injuries, etc., the guy just worked too hard and his body gave out too fast. It's that simple. Now is he the same player that earned that $20+ million contract? No, not close. But as most of you all said, he definitely deserved it when he got it.
It's hard to put my head around why anyone would criticize someone for being upset over losing something they genuinely loved. If Jermaine wanted to remain here, then so be it. It'd be just like any of you devout fans moving because of your job, etc., and having to be so far away from the team you love. Granted, it's on an entirely different level but I'm sure you all could relate if put in that position.
