My take is he did not want MCD allying with TR. I smelled fear in those words he wrote.
I think we read two different mails...Seems like PH would like to recruit a proven quality defender, But doesn't because of the MCD pact.
I'm not seeing that at all...The guy seems like a decent recruit. But isn't in the alliance because of PH honoring his council's decisions.
Yeah PH just reacts on impulse, whatever he thinks is a good move at the moment is what he will do only to change his mind shortly after. Backslash most guys have honor here, PH is just one of those exceptions
