Am I the only one who finds the reasoning behind this to be a little flawed?
Still crazy after all these years...but that's okay.

And *supposedly*, Rudy and Dr. Sean have been quoted elsewhere as saying that they didn't know about any of this.

Of course, the release forms Hatch signed before he could get on "Survivor" all said that he was personally responsible for all taxes on winnings, like all release forms for all game and competition shows.  I can't imagine that Burnett or any of his staffers don't know that that's on the release.

Not at all.  It's laughably flawed, reeks of desperation, and doesn't even cover all of the claims against Hatch.

"Oh, did I forget to mention?  Mr. Burnett said that if I won, he'd pay the taxes on the radio gig that I would end up getting too.  Swell guy, that Mr. Burnett."
