WGN is basically saying we will still pay you your huge salary because we have to but we are going to make you suffer, you Cincinnati hick.
I'm not in on the street "rub" like you seem to be but that's the way it's coming across to me as well. They're going to make it very stressful for him to go to work everyday. Problem is that WLW has cut expenses so much that I'm sure they can't come close to his WGN money. My guess is they'd love to have him back but at Walmart prices
