I dont have a problem with Drury wanting the extra money at all. He doesnt want to lose almost 25 percent of his salary.
Lets see how many of you who make 80,000 bucks a year with a mortgage, 2 car payments and a family who would piss away 20,000 bucks just to increase your employer's (who is basically laying you off with a severance) chances of hiring the guy who is basically replacing you as a key leader on the team.
More like $600k after taxes and agent fees. Still no small chunk of change but it helps me hate him at the end of the day.
