Some of those terms definitely are heavy handed. It may seem surprising, but those kinds of terms may be perfectly appropriate and acceptible, depending on the nature of the business and the circumstances.

If your only chance at success is to step up and hit a home run, then what do you really care about all the other details? A proven home-run hitter may be in a position to get a sweet contract while others may need to apply their lips respectfully to somebody else's backside. Interplay wasn't a star and agreed to bank on its ability to hit a home run.

Unfortunately, it failed.
