What They're Saying: Marc Dos Santos

"If he continues working like that, he can have a very good career. It’s important that we say why, why did he get to that? We live in a microwave society. The fans they want things now. The players want things now. Me I prefer the pizza in the oven -- that seven-minute pizza sucks. Even five-minute. You put your finger in the core of that pizza, it’s frozen. Unfortunately here in Canada, I saw it a lot: they want it now, there’s a big entitlement … Theo, he started here with a little bit of entitlement, I felt he was broken. Went to development squad for a month. He came back on a mission."
