Don’t get me wrong: Hockey - especially professional hockey - is grueling, and fixing matches isn’t as easy in theory as it would be in other sports.
That being said, seeing how the Jets - and even their fans! - were this afternoon, it makes me wonder if they just succumbed to the seeming inevitable.
