b1gdon I am with you for the cases where someone has applied for a job where the company product is not affected, just more of a cost to allow the employee to perform.
In this case there is no cost that can be spent to get him to all games and the seperate travel and disruptions harm the product overall. Half a season isn't a result, you can't set up a defensive or offensive system with a vital part only there for certain games.... and then in the playoffs where you really need him he may not be there for a game 7.
They should try to treat, or BA Baracus him, to the point where he buses where possible but then air where required.... otherwise just like my lack of athletic ability holds me back from playing NBA this will stop him.
........ And World Peace
