    Re: Phil Robertson returns to A&E

    Phil Robertson may never return to A&E’s hit reality show “Duck Dynasty,” and the rest of his family is hesitant to carry on without its patriarch, a source tells FOX411. But the family may not be in a position to take an “all of us or none of us” stand.

    "It's not as easy as just not returning to the show, since they all have binding agreements. It's the network's option, not theirs," an insider connected to the production told FOX411. "Plus the family makes far too much money selling merchandise because of the show. It would be a bad business decision to leave it."

    According to Beverly Hills-based entertainment attorney Julian Chan, each show participant is generally under a separate deal when it comes to these types of contracts. So each family member could be subject to a breach of contract claim regardless of what happens to anyone else on the show, no matter what his or her role.

    We're also told that the contracts have morality clauses that give the network the right to get rid of cast members -- but the others still have to keep the show running.

    Multiple industry players assured us that even without Phil Robertson, there is just no way A&E will dump "Duck Dynasty" now. With an average of 14 million viewers each week, counting reruns, it’s the highest-rated show on television.

    "not be in a position"?

    All they have to do is start saying the same things.

    They won't.
    They are too smart.

    So you are saying that they are not rednecks then. Interesting.

    They absolutely should to force A&E's hand.
    As I doubt A&E would cancel their cash-cow.

    It is interesting... I am saying that they PLAY rednecks on a TV show.
    Buddy Ebsen and Max Baer Jr were not as stupid as they appeared to be on the Beverly Hillbillys show either.
    I doubt that the brothers would open themselves up to the expensive litigation of a breach of contract suit when there is still a lot of money to be made from their "cash cow".

    If they chose to say the same thing, it would not be a breach of contract.

    It would be A&E exercising their moral clause if they have one.


    So again.

    Again... what you feel they "should" do and what is smart to do are two entirely different things.
    They are rich but they are not stupid.

    A&E is not going to cancel their own cash-cow, so the smart move is to force their hand into rehiring Phil, by all saying the same thing.

    Again I don't believe that they are that stupid and I don't believe that the brothers are assholes like Phil is.
    If they were they would have already acted like assholes.
    They haven't.
    Everyone said that The Food Network would never cancel their "cash cow" ...
    But Paula Deen is still out of work.

    OyVey.
    Believe what ever the camera tells you. D'oh! iLOL


    If this suspension is real and not just something designed to bring publicity, all saying the same thing would not be stupid.
    It would force A&E's hand. Either suspend/fire all, or un-suspend Phil.
    And as it is not likely they would cancel their cash-cow, it would result with their un-suspension of Phil.


    Frankly, after all this uproar, it is highly likely they are going to reverse their decision anyways.
    Just like Cracker Barrel.
