Why Azog will be a servant of the Necromancer Can't Post

First off, I would like to point out some parallels between Azog and Saruman. For one thing, they are both portrayed as white in color. Saruman in robes, and Azog in skin. Also, in Fellowship of the Ring, there are two main standpoints: Saruman and the Fellowship. Likewise, the two main standpoints in The Hobbit are of the the Dwarves and Azog and his hunter orcs. Saruman was the antagonist of Fellowship as Azog was to The Hobbit. But there's one more thing. Saruman was a pawn of Sauron, someone more powerful, yet in the very much kept in the shadows. If these parallels between these two are anything to go by, it could mean that Azog is also a pawn of Sauron (The Necromancer.)

Other than through similarities to Saruman, their are other reasons that having Azog serve the Necromancer makes sense. For one thing, makes a correlation between the otherwise irrelevant Necromancer subplot and the story at hand. Sauron sends a pack of hunter orcs after the dwarves so he can use the dragon for his own purposes. It's concise. It's perfect.

It also fixes one problem with AUJ journey: Between Smaug, The Necromancer, and the orcs, there were TOO MANY VILLAINS. Seriously. If this idea goes along, it would fix this problem completely by making all these villains connected in some way.

In addition, it would get rid of that whole vengeance subplot between Thorin and Azog. Honestly, why would Azog follow Thorin all the way from Moria to the Misty Mountains just because he cut his arm off? And how?
