What have we done!
You know I'm going to lose,
And gambling's for fools,
But that's the way I like it baby, I don't want to live FOREVER!

As they say in Germany:

"in der Not frisst der Teufel Fliegen" - Literally, "in an emergency, the devil eats flies".

Did no one thing to mention the words "Vulture Fund"?
Mirror, Mirror on the Wall who's the greatest player of them all? It is Drico your majesty.

Can someone explain to me how they are suddenly calling all the shots having only bought a 7th of the entire thing? On the other side of it, how do they make their money back if they dont gain control of the TV rights?
