Maybe Dish was pushing and hoping for this... requiring Softbank to over-leverage itself for the buyout... which ultimately results in a weaker Sprint once the buyout closes since they likely move the debt onto Sprint... then Dish can pick up Clearwire OR Sprint for a song in a couple of years?


Or maybe I'm trying to hard to get inside Charlie's brain.

Paulson Sees T-Mobile Takeover Target for Dish, Sprint
By Kelly Bit - Jul 17, 2013 11:43 AM ET

John Paulson, the billionaire hedge-fund manager whose firm is the largest outside investor in T-Mobile US Inc. (TMUS), said the company is a likely takeover target for Dish Network Corp. (DISH) or Sprint Corp. (S)

Paulson & Co., whose biggest fund specializes in buying shares of companies undergoing mergers, became a 2.3 percent stakeholder in T-Mobile US when the mobile phone company merged with MetroPCS in May of this year. The $17 billion firm, which had bought shares of MetroPCS before the merger, plans to hold the stake in the new company in anticipation of further consolidation in the industry, Paulson & Co. said in a letter to clients, a copy of which was obtained by Bloomberg News.
