Do you suppose the phone conversation would go something like this?
Marcel: Adam, Hi it's Marcel
Adam: Marcel?.. Marcel who?
Marcel: Desjardins, Marcel Desjadins, Gm of the Tiger Cats
Adam: Oh hey how ya doing?
Marcel: Good and you?
Adam: Not to bad, once I'm done collecting all the fines that is (laughter)
Marcel: Looking forward to the next GM's meetings, your wife makes a mean trifle.
Marcel: Listen the reason I'm calling, I wonder if you wouldn't do me a HUGE favour?
Adam: What would that be?
Marcel: I wonder if you could see your way to trading me your 43yr old washed up who becomes a free agent in February, quarterback Damon Allen
Adam: Gee... I don't know, what are you offering in return?
Marcel: Well I could give you my overpaid $400,000.00 injury prone being run out of town Jason Maas AND I'll even add a box of Hamilton Tiger-Cats engraved and embossed pencils.
I know it's asking a lot of you but I'm kind of in a pickle here, what with fans expecting a winning season next year.
Adam: (silence)Gee Marcel I'd really like to help you out but I'm kind of busy right now with a few other things that need my attention right away. Can I get back to you?
Marcel: That's fine.. any idea when?
Adam: Tell ya what.. let me finish off these other pressing matters and I'll get back to you by say January 31st at 11:58pm
Marcel: Man that's awesome Adam, I know we are your arch rivals but I appreciate you thinking about this, you take care now
Adam: You to Mitchel, have a good day now
