are you kidding, this chapter actually supports your theory.
"these men, who are to form a new pirate age..."
now them forming one big crew or group, nah afro's right, too many clashing personalities.But like PoC, there wasn't really a leader and they werent really allies until a time of crisis when they needed to pick a leader they all picked themselves. But maybe law could be the one to vote for luffy. Either that or this chapter was just one big PoC reference cause brownbeard looked like that teague guy.
I could imagine it be the supernovas vs. the WG. why else would oda make all these supernovas if he's not going to use them
