Nope, never met the man, and I make under $100k (you insulting $hit). Saw him once in the elevator. Seemed like a nice enough guy. He obviously had the brain power to build a business big enough to pay for your lavish condo (and my modest dwelling), but apparently not enough to satisfy your sense of entitlement. Enjoy your life blaming successful people for your poor decisions.

Sure would like to know who the Tom Ward Glee Club member is, backing the Bastard Up. Probably ol homo Tom himself, or one of his ass kissers that made 1/2 a mill or more a year, shining his knob for him. F--- You Tom.
In case you have not noticed, the Lawler's have a way of finding their way on board of sinking ships...just look at Chesapeake...David Lawler will run BP into the ground as well.
Lawler is to blame for a large part of the shit you are in, he couldn't run a hot dog cart.
You wanna bitch about Tom Ward? His "greed" paid the mortgage on your shitty condo for the past 10 years. Oil takes a dump and you wanna blame management for the misfortune? Sure, we could've run fewer rigs and taken on less debt, but we would've seen less profit over the course of this run and employed far fewer people. If you can't stomach the volatility of the oil business, get out.
You should get into teaching! You'll have a nice cozy setup valued at approximately $33k/yr for life, and you'll never have to worry about the pesky volatility of your market providing great wages. I hear the state is about to mandate a salary increase! Better yet, you might learn the proper spelling of "lose."
"Loose" = opposite of tight
"Lose" = opposite of win
You = Loser
Try TOM WARD whose greed & stupidity screwed all shareholders except for TOM WARD and DOOMED this company with debt, I am sorry for all the employees that have lost their jobs & will loose in the future!
Why do people still call these f---ers, "Mr. So-and-so"?
Blame being overzealous and running up 3 billion in debt in a play you didn't understand and not thinking to stop and consider the downside past hedging a year out. We never should have run 20+ rigs in the miss. You can't understand what you're doing at that pace you're just populating the rig lines. It's a guaranteed recipe for disaster. Slow and steady. Low debt. Grow organically. That is what works. Go go go borrow borrow borrow drill baby drill puts you overleveraged and unable to survive the downside. Basic business school 101.
If you want someone to blame, blame Mr. Ward.
