Quotes about McGeever edit

  • [Charlie's] an awful man for answering his phone. I couldn't get in contact with him to get a challenge game... He [David Power] gave me the number, Charlie still didn't answer! If you know Charlie, he wouldn't be bothered. He'd just say I'm a low level guy - he only answers to a few of the big people, presidents of the US and that sort of thing.
