Internet rumour has hit in a big way. I don't buy this as a "done deal" and I don't accept this source out of hand. The writer is a history teacher with some political contacts.
At the very least, it may indicate forward progress. Someone giddy at a positive step forward may have jumped the gun and leaked a "deal" message. We need to wait for the big media outlets to confirm.
Brian Robinson at SonicsCentral has heard conflicting reports that the previously scheduled Q&A session with the Muckleshoot consultant group scheduled for Monday has been suddenly cancelled and no new conference scheduled to replace it. The Muckleshoots are supposedly denying a deal.
I think we may have to ride this one out folks.
