...thing is a myth. Read this- story further down, not the headline.

He didn't take 3 different captains out to dinner...

And the fact asking the two most obvious critical thinking questions you'd expect anyone to come up with;
"What larger effects may these proposed changes have? How will you be measuring success in this project?" is enough to gobsmack our current CEO says it all really.

Yeah, Toddy is an impostor. He must go. I'm not basing my opinion on that article written by the Gorilla Pirate. He's an elitist snob with poor punctuation and a leftist ideology.

I'm not sure that disqualifies his story about Toddy.

I didn't give a hoot about Gorilla-Pirate's political leanings (one paper goes one way, one the other- remain skeptical of both) and I avoid the political thread.

It was more the sheer toadying of how he probably thought he was being consultative and seeking consensus but managed to do it in a way that marginalised most players and fed into an already perceived bias. And then got the first two intelligent questions that sprang to mind... but clearly hadn't even factored said questions into selling the rule changes in the first place... and was floored when a player came up with them. Anyway.

My question is why he needed their support and how much would he have compromised to get it.
