It's like we're trying to will ourselves to believe that Clark is treating Pioli like Charlie Brown.
"Hey, Chuck! Look at all of this money (football)!!!" Charlie Pioli comes running to snatch it...while Lucy Hunt pulls it away, hitting him with a smaller buy-out.
This is nonsensical at best. If Pioli has an extension, take it at face value; he's here for a couple of additional years.
