Don't think these things end up in the paper by accident. More than likely it was coordinated by Cody's real peeps.
I think that Vogl was looking for a follow up to get the "other sideof the story" after Gillis opened his mouth, as Vogl should have. After all this soap opera is very interesting to many and a local guy where the player is now located is getting a scoop.
It may be that no one would open their mouth in the Hodgson camp (player, agent, parent). Cody took the high road. Was it calculated? Maybe, but it was the right thing to do.
It may be that the local reporter then reached out to Roberts, who has always been a strong personality and he spoke his mind and..... in the process....protected his client.
Hell, for all we know, Roberts having been through a horrible back injury himself and hearing how Cody had been treated and how limited he was, may very well be pissed at the Vancouver franchise.
His goal is about players taking care of tehmselves in the best manner possible to stay healthy and strong.
