RS Posted May 22, 2010 Share Posted May 22, 2010 Doesn't stop him from being a cheapskate. He thought he could get away with paying less and it blew up in his face. Exactly. Mr. Impact can't see past the fact that a couple of people from Toronto are just repeating what everyone knows and a lot of Montreal people have posted in the past. Joey Saputo and his arrogance are what kept Montreal from MLS until now. He thought he could continue to lowball the league on the basis that "MLS needed Montreal" and the league called his bluff. Once both Toronto and Vancouver were in, Joey was all of a sudden willing to pony up the full $40 million fee to join the big boys club, lest he be left behind in the shambles that is D2 soccer in North America. I'm happy that he did, of course, as it's great for Canadian soccer, but that doesn't change the past and why Saputo didn't get Montreal in years ago.
