The Don Speaks and a Reporter Listens. And Writes.
So I just read this piece on Don Garber's speaking engagement at USC last night on 100 Percent Soccer. Allegedly at one point The Don said something he may have had second thoughts about and followed it up with "I hope there's no media people here, they'll get me in trouble for this." Personally I don't think what he says was that controversial or too off base but for his own reasons he thought better of it afterward.
Now if you're a writer sitting in an audience what do you do? Do you take that as a wink from Garber and keep mum in the name of goodwill or do you let your predatory instincts get the better of you and take the bait? I have my own opinion but I'm just a fan and not a member of the press so I don't pretend to have full knowledge of how something like that would typically get played. I do know that a couple of proper writers read TOR on occasion so if any of you would like to comment anonymously on whether or not you would spill Garber's beans in exchange for a story, please do so. I'm quite curious.
