If he doesnt stick to his guns hes a fool for wasting the money.
I'd agree with that. If he gets traded for the same money and then plays, there's a lot of foolishness in that. But man...I've done foolish things in my life out of spite. Quit a job over pay when a jacka$$ boss wouldn't pay me what I thought I was worth, and then took another job for the same money That sort of thing. Which, when you think about it, is exactly Bell's position. Just a loooooot less money. It's foolish to 'cut off your nose to spite your face', but people do it all the time. We even sometimes see it as 'winning', because we 'beat' the other guy, even if we didn't get what we wanted in the end. People are funny
