why are they scum? they negotiated a $50MM out and paid it. i was expecting them to fight it. you shouldn't hold it against them for paying $50MM and walking. would you have preferred them to have not paid the $50MM and walk? or to have gone ahead with a deal they didn't like anymore? if you have a beef, have a beef with PBY's board for (1) not negotiating a tighter contract and (2) running the company into the ground to the point that PE firms are kicking the tires.
