make sense. It costs money, we can't do it. The money they give us has to go to us. We're (apparently) not allowed to give our own money to the MMB becasue we can't? It's not like they can't afford to front 400k then get it back from Jerry World in the pay-out.
If he was "no happier not having our band down there than anyone else", I feel like he would be less calling the band not going a "practical reality" and more "we're looking for other ways/methods of funding" something that opens the door and not just "too bad, so sad, I'm really chewed up about it too, oh drat. This is very, very sad."
