You're right, each to his own, but I think you got it backwards, Jones did what suits him and to heck with everybody else. But it's sweet of you to give Jones the benefit of the doubt that he actually gives a fig about integrity and all.
Btw, should the word integrity ever
be used in connection with the word sport? Also, title shots are not always
"earned". Sometimes Dana "giveth" and sometimes Dana "taketh away".
