That's amazing news, I was waiting for the other shoe to drop on the Dreaded Dallas NTC (DDNTC) and that's not so bad. Not as great as no NTC at all but having 20 teams to trade with is pretty excellent.
My intention isn't to stir anything up, but this is just so peculiar:
Lites: "It got done in ... basically last night in a long conversation between Jamie, his representatives, and ours ... and concluded this afternoon ... and we were able to get it finally done and announced tonight."
Just a thought, but maybe this is simply spin and PR from a carvinal barker like Lites after a tough negotiation, making it sound like they were singing kumbaya at the end when there was really more to the way it ended, maybe a take it or leave it kind of offer to break the stalemate. We'll probably never know and it doesn't matter, Benn's back and he's here for five years.
