I think it is pretty apparent that Toye assuming the role of Sheepdog is his way of how he would view as a means to redeem himself, I think that is his perspective and what fuels his behavior.I disagree. What drives Ron is insecurity, self-loathing, and his twisted drive for control. He couldn't care less about redemption because, in his delusions, he's rationalized away the burden of responsibility for his bullshit. He's precisely one of those "Well, I said it on Twitter so it must be true" types of human garbage. Further, he won't care about redemption or actual change until someone or something makes him care.
People like him and many of the others involved in this mess can't be reasoned with or talked to like rational people. Vic's lawsuit might recover some of the financial damage they've done to his career and professional reputation, but it's not going to make them actually sorry or see the error of their ways.
His whole sheepdog bullshit (which BTW, fuck you Grossman for inflicting that bullshit on us) reminds me of an analogy I use for people like this. Say you're a farmer or rancher. There's wild dogs that would love to get at your animals. You build fences and other defenses, you remain attentive to maintaining everything. If the dogs aren't doing anything, just eyeballing your shit from a distance, you leave them alone. Not worth your time and effort to try and hunt them down. However, if they cross the line into actually going after your livestock, you shoot them. You wouldn't trap them, sit down with them and try to lecture them into not doing that again. I think one should treat people like this similarly. They want to talk shit about you, say patently false things about you online, fuck it man, just ignore that. But if they actually go after you, you make them sorry the thought ever even crossed their mind.
Not a great analogy, but you get it.
What he does now will offset what he did earlier as it exemplifies the product of him being a changed Man which, eventually, creates this fucking stupid LEGACY he speaks of.
He has created a public record that further CONDEMNS him rather than REDEEMS from the perspective of any rational mind. He does not look through that lens, a rational one, and operates from a position of Savior of Wahmen, the complete antithesis of his prior, repugnant behavior and the reason it is all the fuck over Twitter is to showboat for EVERYONE that has changed, he is different, he is the Sheepdog and he is redeemed.
He is absolutely compensating for the bottom-of-the-barrel behavior that he exhibited. Look at the degree of and the extent to which he goes, it is completely excessive in both measures.
I do agree though, that he is insecure, self-loathing and has a twisted drive for control which seems to be a shared set of qualities amongst these fucking cast of clowns.
