If it was UKA induced, I think there may be some explaining to do. Anyone got any news about this one?

It strikes me that finding out who is telling the truth here would be remarkably simple.
Tom McNab clearly states in his letter:
"I received a performance-based contract from his agent".
"....everything that I have written above can be confirmed from other sources".
Andy Rutherford's letter states:
"Tom would not take his (Greg's) calls".
So, TM claims to have a contract he was offered and has sources who can confirm his story. AR/GR on the other hand can provide only a telephone bill which will show several calls to TM's number from when messages were left.
If it wouldn't upset UKA too much, perhaps AW could check the details and report the truth? It does appear to me that TM has evidence.
On another point, don't UKA and Stellar have a conflict of interest here? UKA coaches Ayo Falola, Frank Attoh and Tony Lester all have close links with Stellar. Can they or UKA offer unbiased advice?

You pay for what you get, TM did not incur any costs whilst coaching AR (this is not in dispute) so should count himself lucky as most volunteer coaches do incur costs and would have had a moralistic gripe where there is a split but TM was paid so has no moralistic ground to stand on.
TM in my opinion was in a business relationship which ended when AR moved on to another service for which TM is now not receiving payments. It was a business relationship that has ended and that is all it is.
