Sorry, you guys had your chance - no credibility remaining at this point.lol.
There is no damage so there is no strategy.
Unless you have any plans to come clean, I suggest you just don’t respond to anything here as opposed as to digging yourself a deeper hole.
As you know, all this controversy could easily be put to rest with a tape measure, a couple of pool balls, and a camera/smartphone. What you can’t prove you have no choice but to run with the deception plan.
