Just because a player holds out does not mean it's always their fault. I'm not saying that Dubi was completely in the right last time, but the salary he ended up with certainly wasn't ludicrous (and he actually earned it unlike some players on our team).
Because when you are negotiating your first contract after your entry level contract, you should not be the one playing boss. I love Duby, don't get me wrong, but who the hell does he think he is holding out all the way until September for his first real contract, demanding 4 million?
