...and I am saying, as a Managing Director of a Consultancy company, that this is not how risk/reward equations are typically done in business.
I am certainly with you on the issue, no one is paying out the best possible outcome of your pick/prospect to you now and eat all the risk.

It's the same with the other Edm-Car-Pit proposal, where PIT gives up the best player for a couple picks and everyone is whining about how Yakupov is maybe going to be a 50+ goal scorer and the next coming of the almighty. Just thought the effort was kinda futile on both sides and did not want to just be a homer piling on the Gudbranson fans.
