    Not a penny.
    He wanted out....he got out.

    Don't believe all of the after the fact double talk.

    Things worked out.
    The show went on....and Jackie lived...and laughed.

    I don't believe it was that high... Remember it was many years ago. However, the number $500K/year comes to mind.

    I truly believe he was tired of the mornings. The money demands were a way of justifying to himself having to get up.

    Sure he probably has never made as much since leaving, but I don't think he kicks himself as much as the show thinks he does. The rest of the crew has continued to stay, so they're projecting their life needs onto him. The Unabomber was happy living in a shed in the middle of nowhere.

    I remember there was an interview with Jackie and he was making something like g00k a year at the point of negotiations. He wanted a new 5 year contract I believe where it would increase every year and in year 5 it would be 1 million.

    I believe their final offer was a scaling that ended up in the neighborhood of 900k in year 5 and he walked.

    Fucking idiot

    I understand not wanting to get up early, but come on, he was being kind of a pussy IMO

    Money isn't everything but people get up at 4am to make $8/hour. Him not wanting to get up cuz it was too early is kind of a slap in the face to people like that

    But those kinds of people have to get up early. Jackie may have had enough money for his idea of a good life that he didn't need to do that.

    This seems like such a hard concept for a lot of people to get. Howard seems to have been very successful in getting his "never leave money on the table" concept out there, forget about personal integrity and contentment with less. Jackie was in a position where he needed to get clean or go down the road Artie did, he seems to have done that, if he had continued to work who knows what would have happened. Jackie probably gets a lot more contentment sitting in his shitty bay house, grilling a steak and having a beer than Howard ever will in a 5 star restaurant with his beautiful soup, getting "high" on $800 wine. I also give Jackie credit for remaining his own man and not signing up for the Buchwald gravy train like all the rest of Howard's lackeys did.

    Exactly. Someone is baking those bagels and donuts at 4AM and they are not living in a house with 7 chimney's

    Gunky runs Jackie down all the time because Gunky has to run EVERYONE down but, he should be sending Jackie X-mas gifts ever year. Just think about the money that Gunky gets to pocket every year for the last 14 years due to the discrepancy between what Jackie would have been making and what Benjy actually makes. I think we are seeing Jackie's potential K-Rock/Sirius money every time Beefus walks a red carpet with a different dress/shoes/handbag that she throws away after one use.
