    i never thought he would finish this contract. I would not be the least be surprised if they are negotiating a buy out now. Probably wont happen until AGT is over, the infomerical is too good for NBC.

    Howard will not leave marbles on the table ever. It is a physical impossibility right down to his DNA.

    Why would Howard leave? All he has to do is barely show up for work a few days a month and he rakes in an obscene amount of money. By the way, Rev. I like the name and the avatar. I have Full Custom Gospel...., Liquor in the Front, and Martini Time.

    I wish Sirius would stop broadcasting his show but still make him come in and do a show. That on top of "cheating" him out of his hard earned marbles would be a nice FU. Wiggy just giving never ending AGT plugs into a dead mike would be priceless.

    Sirius should keep up their end of the bargain and lock Howard out of his obvious plans to go elsewhere .

    He'll finish up his contract unfortunately. Too much money to give up. Seeing how bad the show is now, just imagine what the last year of his contract is gonna be like.

    Thanks Fuck, diggin your av also. The Rev live is soooo good! I am thinking that Howard is getting tired of Sirius and Sirius is tired of him - I foresee some sort of split. Either Sirius finding a way out of his contract or Howard (or NBC) buying his way out of his contract - obviously at no loss Howard.

    What does Sirius need Howard for anyway? He is averaging what, 2 live shows a week. You think Sirius is living and dying on his 8 hours???

    Clear Channel had a contract with him also. They threw him off of several stations......and greedy Howie sued.

    By the way he cried about it every once in a while, I get the feeling he wasn't paid in full by a long shot.

    Hopefully, Sirius finds some performance loophole somewhere in their agreement with the beanpole and fires his lazy ass.

    If Mrs. Stern dies, the old Mrs. Stern, I mean the really old Mrs. Stern (Howard's mother) he will go off the deep end and that will be the end of the show.

    I had previously thought end of this year after the summary dismissal of his case. However, after learning an appeal takes at least a year I think he will stick around on-air because he'll need an appropriate venue in which to harrangue Sirius about it. If he bails and sticks to TV he won't have that, as they can't have him ranting for 10 minutes in between juggling acts and dancing bears.

    As for Sirius being able to "fire" him, they might have some tactics to pursue legally. There are concepts such as "good faith" and other vague stuff I've forgotten from school that they might try to invoke. It's if you were hired to MC the Miss America show and went up on stage and disparaged the producers there to damage them. They probably have some legal right to prevent that. This is, however, why they have real attorneys.

    Some case law on that:

    In U.S. law, the legal concept of implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing arose in the mid-19th century because contemporary legal interpretations of “the express contract language, interpreted strictly, appeared to grant unbridled discretion to one of the parties”.[SUP][1][/SUP] In 1933, in the case of Kirke La Shelle Company v. The Paul Armstrong Company et al. 263 N.Y. 79; 188 N.E. 163; 1933 N.Y., the New York Court of Appeals said:
    In every contract there is an implied covenant that neither party shall do anything, which will have the effect of destroying or injuring the right of the other party, to receive the fruits of the contract, which means that in every contract there exists an implied covenant of good faith and fair dealing.
