Default Re: Lambert missing?

I think the last sentence of this article says it all............ the while we, as fans, would have loved to have seen him there, he has other priorities.

Jack Lambert rarely returns to the city, save for a handful of lucrative autograph-signing sessions each year. He wasn't available for an interview Thursday, but the conclusion of his Hall of Fame acceptance speech on Aug. 4, 1990, spoke eloquently to his priority in retirement.

"I would like my wife, Lisa, and my daughters to stand (his sons were not yet born)," Jack Lambert said. "There, ladies and gentlemen, is my Hall of Fame."
"We're not going to turn our backs on him," Ward said. "We're going to treat him like our brother. We're going to accept him back and be very supportive of him and help him get through this. In this locker room, he's still our quarterback."
