I agree. He's been made the scape goat one too many times on certain instances.

There was a point and time when he was the only real competitor on this floor, he's always out doing community events and when you see him on the street he will always stop and say hello or thank you, regardless of fan feeling towards him (which I've NEVER understood).

Anyone who's been in a bad work environment could likely sympathize with him. I for one really hope he can move on.
