I agree with the guys that think there will be a mutual parting at the end of the year. As pointed out Romeo is of retiring age. My grandma went into retiring age thinking she could work well into her 70s, but that didn't happen because she faced a year in her career much like Romeos. Failure by her entire staff, and a tramatic real life event at work, ala belcher. There comes an age when a year like this sends you to the beach.
And ***** is a smart enough guy to know enough is enough, it's time to step away. Job just didnt work out.
