Somethings just don’t change, they remain constant. At first glance they change, but they remain the same.
Entitled players are entitled players, everyone hopes they can change or will change and on the surface they do, but the undercurrent of entitlement remains exactly the same. Some players figure it out when it’s too late, they figure it out the hard way or blame everyone else for their shortcomings. Others will figure it out and learn and grow. It’s those types of players and people that will become ultra competitive, successful and the best teammates.
You see entitled players always think their right, and they can’t possibly be wrong. Even when they are wrong they always have an excuse, a reason.
Poor body language and selfish play are amazing indicators of entitlement.
I’ve written about entitlement before, but I witnessed multiple cases of it today during the Saint John Sea Dogs and Moncton Wildcats game. Trust me it was subtle, but it was there. You see it’s always there, it’s in the undercurrent, which is really unfortunate.
Did you notice two players arguing as they skated off the ice at the end of the second period? I know they are just kids, but where did the entitlement start and where and when will it stop?
Somethings just don’t change, they remain constant. At first glance they change, but they remain exactly the same.
Entitled players are entitled players, let’s hope they can figure it out before it’s too late.
Let’s hope their team can get past all the entitlement they possess, because it will be incredibly difficult to win the games that matter most when entitlement is ever present.
