The thing is he didn't lead 989 or Verant, he was part of a team. His one chance to lead was a complete and abject failure and the stories from that really don't give me any confidence. It's not about second chances, more about a man knowing his limitations. I seriously doubt Mcquaid can lead a company, even a small one, to the promised land.
Maybe someone else will lead it, and he'll work mainly on The Vision©, but Based on what we've seen he is not capable of being in charge. I'm a firm believer in second chances, but this isn't that. It's just someone who had passion before and was in the right place at the right time trying to get back to 1998. It ain't going to happen.
