Your post seems to have a certain 'I told you so' flare to it. But really you haven't proved anything except that people still circulate these rumors with no credibility behind them. People have speculated this is why the Giants have landed marquee players but I think it has more to do with the fact that players want to play for a high profile coach/team instead of a Prince Albert (no offense, PA fans). I think Hoople makes a good point. How would that amount of money not have a trail? How many 17 year olds could keep that completely under wraps?
