Had you asked me yesterday, I would have said that it would be tough to make Dion's fight any harder. As happens often in my life however, I stand corrected.
After reading this and this, it would seem that there is some mysterious star alignment out there, determined to give Dion the fight of his life.
I don't know how or if this book will have a major impact on Dion's fortunes, but certainly raising the spectre of division within the ranks, makes his life more difficult.
I suppose it could be argued that he could cite that as being a thing of the past and show concrete examples of how things have changed, but the media are obsessed with the "in-fighting" meme. I don't think it would be noticed, no matter what he said. They do not follow him. Too sorry they.
While my honest desire is for unbiased, insightful, reporting, at this moment in time, it would be nice to find a reporter sympathetic to Dion. I'm not suggesting that either of these writers is not. In fact, I think they are simply telling us what a gossip-fest this book is going to be. The fact remains however, that the timing is not good.
Well, one thing I do know for sure, Dion is no coward. I understand that is how the con's would like to portray him, but that does not add up with the facts about the man.
I guess we are about to see how honed his "avalanche survival" skills are.
