I guess Chris got his team's deal in place before JU got Hammer's deal done. Some folks are still being hush-hush, which inserts some WTF-ishness to the whole deal. When everything is signed and in the sunshine, we'll certainly read another release about it.
But for now, my statement stands until JU prints something to the contrary. In the meantime, to paraphrase one of his own quotes: 'I'll believe it when I see it grid up at Daytona.'
