In terms of a $3 million dollar + contract is it less than 8% and I find that utterly ridiculous. Im not saying Stepan isn't deserving of it by any means.

Perspective?
a quarter million is a quarter million is a quarter million.
You want to minimize the number by equating it to % of X by all means do so, at the end of the day it's still $250,000.00
translated that means it's ALOT OF MONEY
And we are talking per year so in REALITY it's half a million over 2 years.
Of course Sather and his team are going to try to minimize the impact by bring in fractions and such, but to the player they see the real number and it's NOT 7.6% or 7.1%
It's $250,000.00 per and $500,000.00 on the total.
