He's an idiot? Really?
I can't speak for anyone else, but the last person in this world I'd expect to screw me over financially is my mother. It's one thing to be awful with money, but what they did with his money goes beyond being financially irresponsible - they milked the **** out of him. They treated him like a cash cow and ran his debt into the ground. The amount they spent/lost has more to do with their greed and taking advantage of a situation than it does with making smart decisions. Disgusting on their part.
I'm a cancer survivor myself. I was fortunate to catch mine early, but it still took 2 surgeries and 2 years out of my life. What Murray is facing is something I can't imagine. I would've vacated my job by now if I was him. But he's a stronger man than me. Goodluck to him and his family.
Back in September Matt (different Matt) said he was no longer doing articles and write-ups on prospects on Red Wings Central. At the time he said that the forums would stay up, but a week ago he posted that they were being closed as well. I didn't see anything posted here about it, HFboards had a farewell thread at the time. I do have to say it was one of the better assesment sites for Wings prospects, especially the rankings.
Some of you may be familiar with the forums there, as it was pretty laid back...well since there was little to no moderation (so quite the opposite as here). I would assume he's going to dedicate all his time to CapGeek (if you didn't know a Wings fan runs it) and everything will be pretty much frozen in time. Just thought a post here wouldn't hurt as we are losing an exclusively Red Wings blog/news/forum site.
