I also am saddened by Comcasts firing of Bob Cousy. To try and put it in perspective, listening to the old timers is like talking with your grandfather. It doesn't so much matter what your grandfather says or how he says it, it is just nice to be able to hear him, knowing that all too soon he will no longer be around. The Celtic greats such as Cousy and Heinsohn were responsible for making many of us life long fans. For that reason alone they deserve to retire on their own terms. Yes, Comcast has the right to employ who ever they want, but they could have handled this situation much better. I wonder how long it will be before Tommy Heinsohn will be the next victim. My hope is that he will be allowed to retire when he choses.
