    Rob you are the man! Wow .... way to scoop the story before the story. I wonder if they mention the page by name as the source for the Maloney-Spain rumor. Interesting to say the least ... wonder if Maloney comments on that news piece.

    They just mentioned the page for one second by name, showed a screen shot of the main page (framed!) and said something to the effect of "if you logged onto clutchcity.net today, you may have seen the rumor that has Matt Maloney in negotiations with a team from Spain..." They then went into the story where Maloney denies it.

    Congratulations Clutch! You now officially have only 14 minutes, 57 seconds left of fame! [​IMG]

    WOW!

    Man, I can't believe that! I just am stunned... even though they tear up the report, it's amazing to me that a report on the page could be taken to such a magnitude.

    Maloney's response to the rumor cracked me up .... "No... (chuckles) ... not even close."

    BTW, the Maloney-Spain rumor was in a Spain Hoops mag, for whatever that is worth [​IMG]

    Major props to you Rob in Spring. Thanks a million ...

    Man, this is a red letter day in the history of Clutch City. You don't know how much I have enjoyed watching CC Online grow and to think that you got a mention on a television newscast is just remarkable. I must say congrats, Clutch!

    Right on!

    So many lurkers back in the day (I was one of them for sure)... now folks sign up the minute they hear about us and go hog wild on telling us their opinion. Many of those opinions are now stated as fact and include the word "fact" within their opinionated post. And that, Sooner423, is a fact.

    tilman refinanced to further amortize the maloney devastation.
    We will now be paying him through 2042, if he is still alive, and if he's not, then his estate.

    Man this was back in the day when people cared about @Clutch and their fellow Rockets fans instead of Stephen A Smith and Max Kellerman!
