Well, that's great but we did give up Ford. So you can't just take him out and look at it as Rasho and #17. Ford was an asset to some teams (Indy) and Rasho's contract was an asset and so was the #17.
I love the Indy deal for us, but it was good for them too. My point is that it wasn't a rip off of a deal for us where we won big time. We gave up a lot to get a lot.
