If the rumors are true and Parise's agents really did dupe Lou into thinking he would re-sign, then he probably started doing the math based on the supposedly agreed upon amount.
Lou even said publicly that when he sat down with Zach that weekend, there was never a question of asking for more money than what was offered. So that's why contracts started being signed.
Yeah I think you could be right about what happened with Parise, and Lou, and when other contracts started to be signed. I don't blame Poni for walking, but I think we would have kept him had he wanted to wait. I don't blame him one bit for walking on the 1st.
