Just didnt agree with the timing of the contracts. Especially Rosehill.
Because you would have preferred that they use that space to get Hall signed now?

I can understand that--though, if you do the math, it doesn't seem like there would have been enough room--I assume Hall will get $800k+, and after Rinaldo's extension, there was only about $750k available. It seems, thne, that the choice wasn't Hall or Rosehill--it was Rosehill or no one.

I'd like Hall back, but the team does have other options at 4C (Laughton and Talbot), so perhaps they didn't see it as as pressing a need. I'm just happy that we are only spending $675k on our goon. While the timing wasn't ideal, the half-a-million discount from Shelley more than makes up for it.
