This is Burke 101 media manipulation

Is Gillis going to call Cole's boss to get him fired if he doesn't get a bidding war? That's a Burke strategy too I think.

In all seriousness, this won't drum up any more interest in offers. GMs are not this gullible. All this does is to put more pressure on Gillis by having more questions about Roberto. It would be a foolish strategy to use this as a means to generate interest IMO.
