The consensus seems to be that "contract he wanted" was a higher priority, considering that indications otherwise were all advanced by his agents... and his agents also swore up and down that Nashville never made a comparable offer to them, which (thanks to an interview with minority owner Brett Wilson, listenable here) has been debunked. (I highly recommend that interview regardless. It's fun. )

Consequently, they're the folks I end up with the lowest opinion of in that whole mess. Matt Calvert works with them as well, and I'm kind of wondering if we can get his contact info and thereby send a few messages to convince him to switch.
