Did Lafontaine hire GMTM to fail?

I don't think this is right. I'm almost positive that Patrick was part of the Lafontaine/Nolan reveal and that Lafontaine had a history with Patrick.

EDIT: My apologies. You are right and my memory wrong.

It's OK. I have to look it up EVERY SINGLE TIME.

I'm trying to remember the Patrick history.  He bailed quickly as well, or was he cut loose by the Pegulas?

 My memory is that he quietly faded away after Pat left.

Ah, a Battista sighting.  The Comet Ping Pong of Sabrespace.  How I have missed him.

I always hear it a la Seinfeld's "NEWMAN!"

Well, some do, but they signed NDAs apparently. 

And this, I believe, is why PLF's departure was, at least technically, a resignation. NDA's are standard fare in employment agreements - boilerplate even. But the silence that has surrounded that dust-up seems to emanate from an NDA with more teeth than your average employment agreement's covenant. Like, an NDA that was part of a severance/buy-out deal -- i.e., something with real money attached to it.

This was never a question, to me.  Same goes for Ted Black.

It's been a minute since I thought about it. But yeah - those dudes definitely "resigned." It is sort of amazing that nothing much has leaked. Ever.

I for one just find it hard to believe that Lafontaine was that smart and that devious to enact a plan of that magnitude, yet couldn't keep his job for 4 months.

He probably mean that he hired him to "fail" in the sense he hired him to "tank". I.e - Pat was complicit in the plan to tank. That Pat left for other reasons, not because he was anti-tank. He was "actively sabotaging the organization" only in the sense that the plan to tank was, as a whole. 

Saying "hiring him to fail" is just a click-bait way of putting it.

I'm still curious as to what happened with the PLF/Pegula break up? 

To Quote Mia Wallace  

"Truth is, nobody knows why Marcellus threw Tony out of that four story window except Marcellus and Tony. When you little scamps get together, you're worse than a sewing circle." 

Marcellus is TPegs

PLF is Tony.

The similarities also follow 

Mia : He Fell out of a window.

Vincent : Hmm, hmm. Well, that is one way to say it. Another way to say it would be that he was thrown out. Another way would be that he was thrown out by Marcellus. And yet even another way to say it was that he was thrown out of the window by Marcellus because of you.

Mia : Is that a fact?

Vincent : No, no. It's not a fact, it's just what I heard. It's just what I heard.

 

PLT was fired by Terry because of something.  Probably not for giving Kim a foot massage.
