The OP knows none of that is true. Hell I doubt we even talked to half of those people. Tee Martin I think will be on the staff still also. I think the only guy who actually turned us down was Fedora. Applewhite wasn't offered as he would of taken it in a heartbeat.
While I am underwhelmed by the hire I do legitimately believe only one person turned us down and that is Fedora. Manny had to wait till after the Natty and Enos (rightfully) weighed all of his options. I have no sauces, just adding it up.
