Just a thought, but maybe this is simply spin and PR from a carvinal barker like Lites after a tough negotiation, making it sound like they were singing kumbaya at the end when there was really more to the way it ended, maybe a take it or leave it kind of offer to break the stalemate. We'll probably never know and it doesn't matter, Benn's back and he's here for five years.
