It doesn't take a rocket scientist to know implicit agreement is 
meaningless in business .  Also I don't think this was the case.  Kemp 
basically signed a long term agreement & the market jumped and scrubs like 
Macilvaine were getting $5M a year, and he wanted to renegotiate.  Ho many 
players do you know who have signed large $ contracts only to stink it up, 
and go back to management looking to adjust there contracts down ?  Long 
term contracts are the risk both parties take.
