"I as the president of our club could have taken more time to not only explain the circumstances around our decision," Schuerholz said. "Although we made that decision in unanimous fashion, I wanted to express our high regard for him and our view of him being with this organization for many years to come in some sort of connective fashion.
"I'm not regretting the decision making. I'm regretting the manner in which it was portrayed and explained to Tommy. I feel like I could have done a better job with that."
John Schuerholz is a class act and this should prove that the organization and the folks who run it do care about the players and what they mean to the team and the city.
