Stern signs a new contract with Sirius, announced on 12/9/2010 to take effect 1/1/2011. Then on March 22, 2011, Stern sues SiriusXM for $300million with an other additional multi million $ chunk for his parasitic agent Don Buchwald. That's 102 days since signing the contract or 81 days since the contract took effect. Aside from trying to extort money he didn't deserve on the basis of some sloppy contractual language loopholes, how usual is it for an agent to get his own share, not a customary percentage out of his clients' earnings? And even if Stern legitimately earned that $300 million, what the fuck did Buchwald do to help bring about the merger? IMO that's just unwarranted exploitation of some deep pockets. So if Howard were an honorable man, shouldn't he have in good faith informed the company, prior to signing the new contract that within 3 months of it taking effect, he intended to sue them? Shouldn't he have said: "fellas, hopefully this won't matter to you, but being upfront about it, Don and I will be suing the company soon for in excess of $300million for the work we did in helping to orchestrate the merger." ?? And if that's what management intended, wouldn't they have settled instead of fighting it tooth and nail? Why didn't he? Was he afraid SiriusXM would not have agreed to the terms of the contract which pays him a Kings Ransom for doing next to nothing, on a part time basis if they knew of his intent to further take them to the cleaners for what could be considered unintended legalese? How honorable is it to take their money, bind them into an agreement with no escape clause and then try to extort them when they were a captive audience? And how many times has this "company man" spent his whole show promoting AGT and calling it his "real job."? And what about all the on air Sirius bad-mouthing once they chose to contest his suit? He can't really believe this shit, can he?
