    I was wondering about that and can believe it. When Habana signed there was a full on press release, Im sure the same would apply to Fourie.

  • @Original Pierre (Comment 26) : Oh boy the had better be :evil: If there are the same depth issues as last year, I will guarantee Mr. Streauli that I will not buy season tickets, and will NOT buy a single ticket to the home games. So if he thought the Stadium for the semis was empty, he will have another 5 spectators missing this year :(
