I actually disagree. Elway said $8m, not $12m.....and he stood his ground.
They were waiting for the paperwork.......and when it didn't come, he cut him before the deadline....as he said he would all along. Elway wasn't bluffing, and he didn't allow himself to be scammed for $4m by an agent who thought he could stall, making the current contract remain valid.
The agent didn't believe Elway would cut Elvis.....OR the agent was a bumbling idiot, or both.
