I've always had the impression that he is a former disgruntled employee/insider. But I could be very wrong.
CM clearly has an awful lot more knowledge and experience in this aspect of the game than I do. I want him to know that I believe what he says. What I don't understand is why he gives the impression of revelling in the game's discomfort - rather than passing on all of his hard-won knowledge and wisdom to the game's authorities so that together (CM, you and everybody else) we can enjoy a vibrant sport with a burgeoning sponsorship/media profile?
