Read that before continuing to defend any one of THQ's upper management. And yeah, studios have been shut down.
I'm not defending anyone. My comment was specifically directed at the tone of Alex's article, and even more specifically his tone regarding the pay cuts. If Alex had criticized upper management for being incompetent, I wouldn't have batted an eye. It's obvious they're not a very well-run company.
I have to agree with you, Kevin_Cogneto. While this CEO is (probably) incompetent, I don't think taking a 50% pay cut deserves the amount of scorn present in Alex's article. Ultimately, even if the CEO had his salary reduced 100% it wouldn't have made much (if any) difference. Not that it wouldn't be admirable if he had taken a 100% pay cut, of course.
