You're right. $ 1.6 M to coach and $ 6.4 M for a fictitious executive job is much easier to swallow. Oh - I almost forgot about "ownership considerations" - how the guy managed to get cash for shares he never paid for in the first place, shares of a business that was losing money left and right, is beyond me.

Now - I'm not saying he did anything shady or illegal. It was a valid contract, and no-one was forcing Moyes' hand. But let's not kid ourselves - he was being paid an outrageous amount of cash and we got very, very little in return. Pretty much the worst signing in franchise history.
