I am not a big fan of Tom's writing. He usually makes arguments that don't make any sense, and clearly is not a fan of the Bobcats. His writing reminds me of someone's random uncle becoming a sports writer.
With that said, you can't deny the significance of Gerald's comments in this article. Particularly the lack of comment on Rod Higgins. It's hard to imagine we will see Gerald back here in the future, but time can heal wounds.
