Those bonuses really screwed you guys over IMHO. Dirty pool so to speak. I hope you guys find a way to keep him and that he is happy to stay.
That is the question that only the ownership can really answer. We fans have our suspension, but we don't have any clue what kind of money they have or are willing to spend.
