Because that's what you're supposed to say when asked about Trevor Gillies role. Lets just say that JT thought that Gillies was a waste of space. Would he ever admit it!? Heck no.

Goons are a vestige of way back when, when goons could literally knock JT out of the game if they pleased. You haven't been able to do that for ages. I don't want to get into this argument again, so I won't say more. But I just want it to be known, I am patently against goonery (Boulton), but I appreciate guys who play physical (physical as in actual physical play and not fisticuffs), guys like Martin, CMac.
