I think it was partly about cap space but more about cash. And I think the market will prove just how overpaid Doom was. He probably won't get $8 million, let alone the $12 million he was scheduled to make. That's why I think this move was "warrented". And if not for Doom's idiot agent it would have worked out for all involved.
