I was speaking generally. Sorry. Only the first part was for you . I have a bad habit of rambling.

I wish I had the soundbyte to show you the full quote, not just this journalists hacked up version of it, but I don't. They played it on TSN1260 a few times though.

The short of it is this. Don't take everything you read from a journalist to be the gospel. This is a perfect example of a reporter "TMZ'ing" something to get a buzz story, rather than reporting the facts.
I completely agree and I admit I am certainly not as familiar with your media as you are.

If you have the full sound clip, I'd love to hear it. If you do not, then I have to go by what I have. I can't take your word for that. Because you might be a little biased, naturally, when defending your stud prospect. We all would be.
