I actually think they've been pretty smart and controlled about the battles they've chosen and how hard they've fought them. The PA has clearly won the messaging war, as well.
They've won the PR war for the most part but they really haven't gotten anything of substance out of the owners...they've lost, but its a matter of mitigating the long term losses....but a loss was expected from the outset, it was just a matter of how much they were going to be able to get back in contracting rights in exchange for their monetary loss.
