How Rumours Get Started
Confidant: So Shannon, is it true that you’re about to sign with Seattle?
Stewart: Huh? I’m thinking more about my golf game at this point. Players are reporting and my phone hasn’t even rung in-
Agent: If you finish that sentence, we’re through. I mean it. You and me are done.
Stewart: Uhh, I mean I haven’t had any serious offers for a player of my calibre lately.
Confidant: But you have received some offers, right?
Confidant: Thanks for your time!
