    I personally don't believe it.
    This could be so many different things, I'll worry about the possibilities later. O & G biz can be ruthless. People are losing everything and looking for ways out, looking for ways to cut and run, looking for ways to blame other people and looking for ways to balance the P & L statements.

    Who the hell knows..

    True, but even if there's no truth to the allegations, the defendants are going to have to spend a lot of money (installments shall we call it) to keep themselves out of jail.

    Good post.

    Should probably let it play itself out then judge.

    Is Superior Energy Services a public company? If so, this will get even more messy before it's over.

    Look I hope this article is full of crap. Just kinda ran across it by happenstance. Robe should have had his palace after the CWS run. We need to get this stadium completed the right way and on time.

    For me it's not a matter of pronouncing anyone guilty of anything. It's a matter of trying to imagine how Mr. Russo is going to make $5,000,000 in installment payments starting this year when he's being sued by someone who claims he stole the money from them. Innocent or not, that's a heck of a hurdle to overcome.

    I hope as much as anyone that somehow someway Tony and his program get the ballpark they deserve, I'm just skeptical that any funding from Russo will be forthcoming at this point. Hope we've got a Plan B in the back pocket.

    Edited to add: I assume we're talking about the same Russo.

    It would be best not to jump to conclusions.

    And, don't let Cajun Disaster Syndrome set in.

    Superior Energy Services (SPN) NYSE - traded at a high $35 and change in August 2014, closed Friday at $15.99. Don't know when they acquired Stabil Drill.

    With today's crappy oilfield environment, the downside for Superior will be a potential class-action lawsuit by investors.

    Stabil Drill was acquired in '97.

    They better make a better case than 'we sold property and the purchaser sold it for a profit.'

    True in past instances. However, this is one I'd expect for us to be kept in the dark on, for obvious reasons.

    Exactly. I found it odd that the author used that piece of "evidence".

    Well we won't be in the dark long. We should know the first week of June at the latest. If we don't see heavy equipment being brought in by then.. then we know no stadium.

    You hit the nail on the head so damn hard on this one. Sounds like someone who knows their time is limited and is trying to hit the chord on their golden parachute.
