    Grizz do you here this, Dirtball still does not get it. Holland was able to order x amount for the year, JUST LIKE THE REST OF THE YRC COMPANIES. They did not receive Yellow's shipment.

    Jimjoe you will learn to not under estimate the inside knowledge that Dirtball has established throughout his tenure with USF. If you don't believe him then just wait till the BIG ANNOUNCEMENT NEXT MONTH!!!!!! GRIZZ

    JJ I was getting ready to PM JimJoe and see if it was you. Have you been up to meet our new TM? He's a 20 year Roadway man. Local man and has a plan. Good news to some and to others look out. Nice guy but is all business. Any good rumors? Our board is boring. That's probably a good thing, meaning everything is running smooth. GRIZZ

    I heard that Yellow cancelled the contract Holland had with International for several hundered new tractors, then International sued and won. Now Holland is going to have to buy the Internationals they orginally contracted for.

    Yeah this Lawsuit from International happen last year! Yellow wanted International to paint them all Orange and International said they wouldn't because it wasn't the way the contract was set up! So we will see if yellow pays International extra money to have them painted one color!

    I seen a driver on I70 West near Columbia MO. in a green sleeper pulling 3 Volvo's twin screw day cabs the two on the rear were white Frito lay tractors I thought the one behind the sleeper was a new Volvo for Yellow thats how it was painted but when I looked at the door it had a Holland decal on it.
