What are you supposed to do? Keep him in a cage? He's not allowed to move up in his profession? I've lost people as a supervisor that I didn't want to lose, but I was happy for them to get new and better opportunities. That is how the working world works, at least that's what you hope for.
I was counting on us to lock him in a basement watching old tv shows, while from time to time his ignoramus brothers would come in yelling at him, throwing food on his floor. Then one day a fat kid (who was abandoned by his friends) would befriend him, and help him get to the freedom he deserved. Maybe the Bears were that chubby kid.
