It definitely takes two to tango. Sprint wanted Nextel's resources, and the BOD & shareholders of Nextel were indeed in it for the money.

That said, in my guesstimation the combined company would have been much better off to have immediately dumped Forsee and let Tim Donahue run the show. I think everybody would have been much happier, and I believe the $30 billion write-down in value would never have happened. There still would have been difficulties, but operationally & culturally Nextel was so much better than Sprint, we'd all be better off had Donahue taken the helm.

But as you implied, he took the money & ran, and it's all water under the bridge now.
