What else is he going to say? But yeah, it is a great show.

Mo Johnson seems pretty honest in his interviews and not afraid to express his opinion. I think if things weren't going well in the negotiations he would say some along the lines that we are having trouble coming to an agreement. Based on past interviews with Johnson if he is saying that Saputo is wonderful to deal with I take him at his word.

Very interesting show as far as I'm concearned. Missed it previously.

Still no Sutton announcement but an announcement could (hopefully) just be a question of media timing.

Seems like friendly matchs, and their gate revenue, have become part of the transfer fees for players/coachs in Canada. Not a bad thing, eh?

Oooh. Bob got a full broadside in on Even, and the CSA in general once or twice there. Ha, got to love this guy even if you disagree. Great fun.

Very good show and this one at least, a required listen for all Voyageurs who've got 3/4s of an hour to spare.

P.S. No commercials.
