Good analysis, Thumper, but I think this line says it all.
It's probably the biggest reason for Roger's greatness.
White fell short in this regard ... heck, more than half the team wanted Hogeboom as the starter when that informal vote was taken in the mid-1980s. He didn't exactly inspire his teammates.
