I can't get behind this guy

I just can't get behind Son. His blind optimism seems to border on arrogance.

We are the alternative, we are the right choice! Just give us a chance..... please?

He just seems disingenuine to me, like a door-to-door sales man that promises you the world and then doesn't deliver. His poor grammar doesn't help, either. it really doesn't. I can't specifically put my finger on it, but I just don't like him.

I don't want him getting his hands on TMO, but I don't blame him for trying. Seems he did a lot of good in Japan.

Do you all even know this guys past???? If he says it, it will happen. He is near God status in Japan for his wireless abilites and took an ailing last place provider, combined some companies and dominates Japans market. The same principle can work here, its all finance and economics for him. And yes he has a huge ego, just look at the house he bought in silicon valley 🙂

Sprint has MORE than enough spectrum to build out and compete on their own. ANY carrier adding 1+ million subs quarterly will get the latest and greatest hardware. Needing T-Mobile to compete is complete malarchy.

Sprint needs to build their network out, raise their customer satisfaction scores, and lower their prices. May the best carrier win.

I don't disagree that they do have the capability, however, that is a huge risk to take with their stock prices barely staying around $7.00 a share. That large of an investment would be quite risky with how fickle Wireless Carrier Investors are.

But who is going to invest in Sprint when they have only a piece of a third of all wireless customer in the US. They need T-mobile's customers to compete

So is Legere, he is also known for turning companies around. John Legere was most likely brought to T-Mobile to make the company more attractive for it to be sold. Look at how much their share price increased over the past year (2013).

How do you expect the CEO of a major corporation to sound if not confident to the point of 'blind optimism'? He has to sound upbeat and optimistic, trying to put a positive spin on everything, or else the investors could bolt. CEO's sounding ridiculously optimistic to the point of delusion is situation normal.

Still better than John Legere.
