Obviously, a lot of people are fearing the fire from the smoke that John Fay saw. I'm content to believe it was just the smoke from Dusty's cigar. The smoke cleared when he stubbed it out in the CVG airport ashtray and flew back home.
Hopefully it is just smoke....I think the reason I'm worried, because this isn't the first time I've heard his name mentioned by people with a foot in the door ...off the record (I think I made reference to it in the final game thread, whether I should have or not is another story
). When I heard it then, I shook my head in fear.
....This is the first of it being made public as far as I know.
