the hypothetical Watson that existed pre-scandal was worth selling the farm for.
the actual Watson that exists now carries too much risk to acquire IMO
I expect a payoff is coming for his current situation. But that won't actually close the door on that chapter. Could easily get re-opened after this group is paid off.
So... you're getting off on that. Just like you would if a player is released (in which case the team would be failing to uphold the contract they entered into).
Anytime you see the "strong man" winning you get off on it. It's weird.
