Veteran Clarifies: Management Quit, Not Players

Yesterday we wrote an article referencing a player quote from Kristian Dyer over at the Metro, the player wanted to clarify what he meant with his quote, and as such contacted the Metro again.

Sometimes meaning can be lost, it's not intentional it just happens. When you believe you're being clear, other people misinterpret it, it's nobody's fault it's just a part of communication.

Yesterday we quoted an article from Dyer regarding a player seemingly suggested the players had quit on the team. However the player contacted the Metro yesterday to clarify the situation and we urge you to head over to read the full article to get some context.

There are several quotes in that article regarding the players still going all out for Rex, but we're focufing in on the 'quit' factor:

"I wasn't trying to say that we've quit, that any of the players quit. I don't think any of us have quit in this [locker] room," the player told Metro. "But it seems like those above us, they've quit on this season. You can't do that. Players need to make a living, get stuff on tape, play for that next year. But it seems like that isn't important, that winning this year isn't a big deal to them anymore. Like they're already looking at 2015 and beyond. Maybe they felt that way earlier this year and stuff but I don't know."

I'm not sure that makes me feel any better and to be perfectly honest, I'm not sure I 100% believe the players haven't quit at least a little bit. It does still show us the faith the players have in management at the moment. Management in this sense is the GM and the owner. If you read the article, you'll notice it's not about Rex.
