No, I think Allen wanted him gone. That was the whole point about "waiting until after the season to discuss contracts".
Allen wanted him gone last year and in 2000. Allen wasn't going to screw it up a third time.
Note, I'm not disagreeing with your opinion.. I'm just saying that even if Lark went to Allen, agreed to play for the minimum, and do whatever the team wanted, he'd still be gone.
Thank you Walt and Bob for going for it in 2012 AND 2013!
