Well, the bad thing is, Phil was 90% irish and as Jimmy P. said he could not be promoted in the mafia hirarchy doe he wasn't italian/american. But I didn't like what he did at the(revenge) ending, calling niko and saying "I'm out, goodbye" is not really friendship anymore, it's more just used. I heard that in GTA 4 beta version you could have abbilitys with him to go out by calling him and Ray Boccino would give Niko backup by sending 2 Mafia guys to protect Niko, after Niko has done all missions for Ray.
Hard decision if you would have the chance who to kill, of course, I would love to see what happens if you choose Phil's dead, but I personally liked Ray more, yes he was more like a coach-oroach and abused his rank(caporegime), but he gave cooler and better missions(than phil), also, he helped niko to help him with darko gravic and Ray has always niko's back unlike Phil that much.
Note: It says that if the player would choose Phil's dead, Ray would appreciate it to Niko and would give him a gift/reward that if Niko is in troubles, Ray would send 2 mafias to protect Niko(like dwaynes gangsters).
