You'd think so. From what I understand, he's annoyed because he already paid for the players taxes in question at Kaunas (his other team). And he's the kind of guy that will go for brinkmanship until the last minute. Sometimes beyond the last minute. He wants the fans to pay for this through a share issue from what I can see since he believes he's already paid the tax once. It would be hard to believe that he would let Hearts go under to prove a point, but I wouldn't put it past him. Oh, and Hearts personally owe him something like 25M.
