I read that too, I rememer when that happened, I had a slightly diffrent take on it than and somehwhat feel the sameway now, but I can see how that would be the begining of the end as it was. I Think Mess would feel diffrently.

We will just never know what would have happened to the Franchise had Mess never left for Vancover.
