Not too bad - but not a million bucks.

She seems like a nice lady. There is a video at this link of an interview with her from CBC.. ... -1.4205370

Re : "She seems like a nice lady."

Agree. :thup:

Pfft. You two are just gold-diggers. I'm sure she's getting "nice lady" messages from the likes of you two from Victoria to St. John's.

I never said she would win. I'm pretty sure it would be thrown out pretty quickly.

But imagine the bad press that would result from her filing a lawsuit. Much better to head the whole thing off before it gets out of hand, and get public opinion on your side early.

Only way a lawsuit happens is if CFL awards TD to argos, 105 yd return to returner & informs public the Bomber win still stands. Thus, Sobeys has to pay up.

CFL informs Sobeys there were 2 TD returns on kickoffs. WINNER.

Only problem is Sobeys legal staff might think other-wise!

Hence, a stand-off.

Either resolve in court - or compromise solution evolves.

Compromise might be $50k per year for 4 yrs.

(but only after CFL restores the TD on the official scoresheet)

Noticed the Sobey promotion absent from last nite's broadcast . . . . !!!! W/U
