Its like this...
Im a director for our company and have a sales team of 30 under me.
I am constantly afraid of losing my top people...im always aware of who is looking...im always aware of who i need to potentially replace.
At my small little level...if i am wise enough to be aware of someone leaving or being stolen away...i sure as hell have to believe a man of JS's position and acute awareness has a plan and list in place at all times.
he may be a lot of negative things to many but lets not assume he has no back up plans in place
