No..no one is mad. But the contract would have been his current value + potential value. $5M over 6 years would have been good for both groups. Salary is important in today's cap world. Every bit counts.
Now he will get $7.5M over 6+. He's going to get his Doughty money. The team was unsure about him, period....and gave him the bridge because of that. It's simply silly.
Still, that PK holdout thread was downright pathetic with some of the crap I heard in there.
