I love Coppock.IMO, Coppock on Sports was easily the greatest radio sports show in Chicago history, it launched Dan McNeil's career. OTOH, it probably cost us 25 years of listening to Terry Boers, a guy who never would have been on radio if it weren't for Chet, but I would bet him the $500 about Reinsdorf not seeing the fans. I was at a patio party last year and he was there shaking hands and taking pictures. That is not to say that Chet's thoughts are totally incorrect. I do think JR needs to make himself a little more accessible to the media. He and Eddie were probably overexposed media-wise when they first began, but I think now it's just the opposite. Jerry needs to find a happy medium. I really think fans like to hear from ownership.
