[Richard Voice] Heeeeeeeeeeeeey, but I like their muuuuuuuuuuuusic. I don't want to miss aaaaaaaaaaaaaaany songs! [/Richard Voice]Thats what Richard thought, and we all know how that turned out! :shock:
Not necessarialy, Howard was doing XM promos back in the day giving XM some decent numbers. If Howard had done spots for Sirius who knows?However detrimental Howard's salary may be to Sirius now, the fact is that Sirius would have gone under years ago if they hadn't signed him.
Howard probably can't grasp the concept of a person being generous to his workers, as most of the Stern staff lives in poverty, having to rely on outside gigs and show prize money to pay their bills. Pretty pathetic for the "Number 1" radio show of all time.
He also most likely can't imagine anyone having the ability to turn down money. That thought has never made it past his wig.
The reason he dislikes Jay so much is because he's jealous of him. Jay thrives quite well without Howard, doing something Howard himself failed at, a talk show. He took John, who is doing much better since leaving the Stern show. Jay also works quite hard, despite not having to, another concept lost on Howard. Leno stays up late with writers to make his show better each year, not worse like Howard's.
The result? Despite badmouthing NBC for the last year or so, Jay is offered a new show, more money, and probably many perks. Howard? Losing listeners by the day, and bankrupting the company he works for.
I don't recall anyone saying that Jay Leno told his coworkers that he voluntarily took less money than he could. It is Howard's money crazy conclusion that Leno could get more money than the $20,000,000 he gets. And that skeeves (or schkeeves) Howard out?? Maybe Leno feels less pressure taking a mere $20,000,000 rather than squeezing NBC for every last penny? Who in his right mind would get "skeeved out" because some other guy is only getting $20,000,000 a year and maybe could get more? This reminds me of how Rush Limbaugh treated Bill Clinton. No matter what Clinton did, Limbaugh found a way to find fault with him for it. He could do nothing right.You are so deep into your psychology of Howard, did you even listen to what he was skeeved about? Jay didn't say "Give my extra pay to my employees". It doesn't make him any closer to his fans. If you or any of my co-workers told me they voluntarily took less money than they could get, I'd think they were assholes, too. I'm sure you just do volunteer work yourself, being that you are so magnanimous.
I never said that Jay is giving anything extra to his employees salary-wise. Although he does give them $1000 per year of service for a Christmas bonus. Howard won't even spring for a small holiday party for his immediate staff.You are so deep into your psychology of Howard, did you even listen to what he was skeeved about?

Its all a pro-Leno conspiracy. Are you even remotely familiar with the forum guidelines?I'm sure you communists think Howard should move everyone into a commune and pay for their retirement....
I can only imagine the Jay Leno ass-kissing forum you all must belong to. Bet there's no critical threads there...
