What if that Wiley scoundrel sits back and does nothing? Tues comes and goes..and then everyone thinks Charlie folded and is now only focused on Clwr and then Charlie sits and waits a few days to see what, if anything, S or SB may do regarding Dishes 3.40 bid for Clwr..and then Charlie storms in with his Sprint rebid, that all encompassing best and final offer? A few things come to mind here, Charlie punks everyone and smokes out his competition and assuming his Sprint rebid is in the form of a Godfather offer, does anyone think that Sprint would mind that this master poker player has one upped the market place and Sprint would have the nerve to say.....Charlie, your a few days late, so we cannot accept your mother of all offer's? Now I
know everyone must be beside themselves reading this post, but could Charlie be that bold?
Fun week ahead. Hope to see all the S and CLWR players active this week. Still believe that 25% CLWR Charlie wants is absolutely critical and his top priority. If he can get that and a DISH + strategic partner acquires S then they control a pretty nice enchilada, maybe vegan style. Great Poker match playing out.
From all I read Sprint has cut off connect with Dish. Plus there are a ton of terms in the new softbank upped bid for sprint that make Dish buying them even more difficult. There would be another 180 day review, and other obstacles. I just don't see Dish getting sprint.
I think Dish has a much better chance with clearwire. Depending on what Softbank does and how much Dish is willing to spend. I still think softbank will up their bid.
