It could be spun that way, I guess. But I don't necessarily believe that. Saying you gained more from an acquisition compared to what you lost tends to imply as a whole as opposed to only certain aspects. James' knowledge was suppose to offset his declining physical abilities. Obviously his knowledge wasn't enough as he struggled & is now unemployed.
