I agree completely. He seems to be a great guy and he's somebody you want
to see succeed. Unfortunately, that hasn't happened for various reasons. I can't stand all the excuses made for him, but he has, at times, shown he is capable of running the offense and is looking like the best option available outside of a trade whenever the lockout ends.
Doing things like this, basically rallying the team (at least some of them), and financially supporting these get-togethers for the benefit of a team with a fanbase that has grown impatient with him is something most people would not even think about doing. If his play on the field was anywhere near his play off the field, he'd be a perennial league MVP.
I know people don't want to talk about him and that's fine, but what he's doing should be acknowledged, in my opinion. He has a LOT to do with the team's offseason workouts, obviously.
