I've been outside the inner circle before. As the guy who had to deliver bad news I never expected upper management to have my back when I needed it or for that matter come to my funeral. When I had to fly my kid out of country because of a medical issue and he nearly died I did get flowers and one partner emailed me. The head partner never said a word despite being the guy that everyone loves. And i didn't care a lick because they paid well, completely left me alone to do my job and gave me great experience. SO when my contract was up I said thank you very much, took my contract bonues and never said a negative word.
So my advice to Deangelo would be to gain some self awareness. JR and your teammates probably had a good reason they didn't show up. Figure out why.
Having said that I think many of us are confused that JR wouldn't show up because of how mice and compassionate he is. JR is a hardnosed businessman who can be mean as a snake and has come off as a bumbling idiot at times. I have heard it from some of his family and people who grew up with him. Which is fine. People don't get to where they are by being nice all the time. He is probably not surprised that Deangelo did this and probably doesn't care.
Voth is probably the best source available for Panther info right now. That he has good contacts and sources within the organization is something pretty much no one doubts. Zod has testified plenty to that fact.
If you wanna say he's wrong, show some evidence that contradicts him.
If all you've got is you vs Voth, afraid you lose.
Well I can't argue against Voth apparently. Seems airtight.
