I can't believe that a certain individual can't fathom the possibility that a 40 y/o man wouldn't take 30-40m(after making a quarter billion already) and retire to a life of leisure rather than face, at best, a hostile workplace. A workplace where he's just average, at best, after being one of the best of all-time.
Some people just don't need the aggravation. Hell, if someone said to me "This is what you'll make over the next three years. We'll give you half right now if you go away", I'd take it. It's a lot less than 30m and I wouldn't be able to retire but, I'd take it and do something else.
