    Mac's tirade included telling Bohn to honor Embree's contract. To which some have accused Mac of not honoring his contract. I am no lawyer. But I don't believe some people understand what a contract is. It is an agreement between 2 or more people to abide by the terms of that agreement. In CU's and Embee's case, the terms were that he would be paid for 5 years of employment. But also in the contract are terms for early termination of employment by either party. CU chose to terminate Embree's employment and in accordance with the contract, will pay him for the remaining time on the contract.

    Similarly, Mac chose to terminate his employment and by the terms of the contract, gave up receiving pay for the remaining time on his contract.

    Sorry. This has been bugging me since I heard Mac's diatribe and wanted to get it off my chest.

    Not sure exactly what you're getting at.

    CU is certainly honoring their contract with Jon Embree. He is being paid in accordance with the terms of his contract.

    DBT, the point was not that CU didn't honor Embree's contract or that Mac didn't honor his contract... they did.

    The point is that if we accept Mac's definition of "honoring a contract", then he is also an offender and therefore a hypocrite.

    My point is that Mac doesn't know what "honoring a contract" means nor do those who said Mac did not honor his.
