He took about 5-7 million less a year than what he could have made on the open market. Yeah, it's huge money, but it HAD to be done. If he was allowed to leave the fans would have torn the new stadium down and abandoned the team in droves. He's the face of the franchise and of all sports in the state.

Now that he's locked up they just need to work on getting a closer to replace Nathan. There are a few in house candidates but only one has any experience closing (Jon Rausch closed a few with the Nats a few years ago).
