This is the biggest thing that drives me crazy on this forum, is that people here don't understand that this is all politics. People read a quote and think that figure is sharing with the public exactly what is really happening behind closed doors. It's not like that. There's the reality of what's taking place, and then there's the PR statement. It is beyond naive to think the PR soundbites are gospel.This is a perfect example of why I rarely post anymore. I mean, if you're going to post quotes from what people say to the media, there's really no way I can counter it, or expand on it, or give any context to it, etc, without posting what I know, which almost exclusively comes off the record. And for what? To prove I know things here? I don't care about that.
And I'm not even just referring to this particular quote, but all things in general (FTR Dave Wilson really did want Kyle to stay. They have forged a very close relationship). People are extremely calculated when they talk to the media (well, the smart ones at least). There is always a bigger picture at play. So in that sense, I would just tell you to continue believing whatever it is you want to believe. There's really no harm in that. It's the desired outcome.
