I think A is the hopeful choice. Going by AirCoryell's other posts, I am going with option B, and AirCoryell was trying to dispel the Austin being a done deal scenario. After all, wasn't that his first thread?
Either way, AirCoryell is definitely an insider, although we don't know if the inside information we were getting is legit. I tend to think that his info was bogus.
Think about it for a minute though...if the SID wanted to make OB and other sites look bad, would they really have someone dispute that Austin was the guy, only to hire him later? That would make OB and everyone else that stuck by the story look better, not worse. So, I think that AC's information was legit - i.e. no offer has been made.
