    I guess if that is considered a "legal investigation," they could go all the way back to the car dealers records...no?

    The VW they offered him probably did meet his demands.

    I have a problem with these guys coming out years later saying this and that happened. If you want to be a rat be a rat when you leave for the greener pastures of the NFL. And if your raisin sack is sufficiently large why not drop the dime while you are there?
