    Bill sounds like a nice option (sharing liquor revenue) to have. But there are other issues as well.

    those other issues are minor compared to the State Law, LS, which is why the litigation blew up the way it did in August, and forced both sides to move on for this season.

    the Pirates have to be the liquor licensee, not just sharing the revenue, which is where that lease broke down, and the 66/34 revision which the franchise never signed.

    the Pirates were seeking an equivalent to 57.5%.
