FWIW, I don't see how anyone can fault a man who believes he has earned a certain amount of money, for not wanting to sign a backloaded deal with lots of deferred money.
If you think you're worth $140 million dollars (or whatever the number) you think you're worth that money as soon as you can get it. And at that level of income, you can turn it into considerably more with proper investing.
Why would you be ok with a team holding on to your money? Why should they earn the interest on money you believe you have earned?
Can't fault Wright if he hedges at this approach. I hope it is properly addressed.
Any why would anyone trust the Coupons with THEIR deferred money, they're crooks after all.
