When I see him say: "I never gave an awful lot of thought to retirement. I guess I thought I was going to work forever," I get more upset with the Jazz organization. I like Corbin; but, Jerry Sloan is such a solid individual. He didn't do it for anymore than the love of the game. I learned a lot of "life lessons" from watching how he carried himself.

Yesterday I called my Satellite company to cancel my automatic renewal of the NBA package. I'm sick of the non-sense from these young, naive, greedy "ball players"!

He looks good and I wish the best for him. He just showed us all what the greedy players are all about.

I remember Sloan being interviewed, as a player, in a post game show in the 70s. It is the only player interview I have ever heard that was was worth remembering. This guy is thoughtful, smart, and classy. He always has been. He has always avoided the standard sports cliches; has always been candid. The NBA needs him back.

Clearfield, Utah

I'm glad Sloan, unlike Stockton and even Malone to a certain extent, maintains ties with Utah, and recognizes how important the Utah community was to his team's success. It would be fun to see him back in the NBA, but I seriously doubt he wants to deal with the crybaby players ever again.
