I don't like Rome at all. However, he's right about Lewis.
I've never been a big Rome fan, either. The guy is a Vanilla Ice wannabe when it comes to sports radio. I still revel in the memory of Jim Everett chasing him off the stage on live TV. Since then, he's become a total *ss-kisser to every jock who appears on his show.
But I do agree, Lewis demanding $50 million up front is not exactly the smartest move in the book.
