    Seen several people on the internet claim that he actually never said the "no EC for 100 years" stuff and the quote was heavily changed over time to make for a good story.

    Alternative version seem to differ though and I've only found one post showing some primary source:

    Anyone knows more about this? Newspapers from back then and the first time the "curse" was mentioned would be great.
    wm442433 and Gregoriak repped this.
