Default Re: Burns fight off, Allegedly claims Derry Matthews knocked fight back...

As for Mathews, I don't blame him for turning down 15k, he's on a bit of a hiding to nothing, especially with only a few days notice. He'd be doing Allegedly a big favour so is entitled to a bit of a premium.
what sort oof options does he mean?always wondered what they meant when people mentioned them?
