They Said It

1986: The only area we did not have problems was in the location of the team. It was the only area we agreed upon 100 percent.

--Ron Adkins's only comment on the reasons the deal was not completed.

I thought I was coming to a wedding... (not) a funeral.

For the soccer player, there is always Somewhere Else.

--Sidekicks coach Gordon Jago.


I found (Dallas) new and exciting, I thought I might be around a while.

--Doc Lawson on his thoughts of setlling down in Dallas, which he eventually would.
