Fox seemed he was just going through the motions. I personally didn't blame him. If you don't have the support you need from management, why give a rats *** anyway? IMO.
If I am going to cash someone's checks, I am going to do the job until the end. Didn't Fox get about $5 million last year? He was offered the chance to go somewhere else. He chose not to. He was not a victim. So, "going through the motions" (and doing it poorly), reflects on his character.
