Stop me if you’ve seen me write this blog before. Jeremy Jacobs, owner of the Boston Bruins, with a net worth of $3.5 billion, has decided to allow a family to set up a GoFundMe page to support the employees that work for him during the NHL shutdown.
Idk if you know this, but $3.5 billion is a lot of money. I’m thinking he can support the men and women slinging beer and popcorn for a few weeks. It’s baffling that multiple owners are choosing this approach. Not only can they afford it, they should, perhaps more selfishly, want the good publicity. I’d much rather be writing a headline that says “Good Guy Jeremy Jacobs Reaches into His Deep Pockets to Support His Hourly Employees” but here we are. The Jacobs have long been known as cheap owners. Refusing to pay their top players in the 70s to early 2000s before finally putting money into their team. A leopard doesn’t change it’s spots I guess.
