Q: Did management coddle Dwight?
A: We didn't coddle him and I don't think he asked to be coddled. But in the last year, yeah, they tried to appease him — "You want this, we'll give you this." That has happened several times in this league and it never has worked. What Otis said was, "He has been with us eight years, he knows us, we've treated him well — either he wants to be here or he doesn't.'' You don't break down your entire value system or culture for anybody.
Well from the history and what transpired I can see this taking place behind the scenes. Our CEO is too blinded by the money to even think about championships. I mean even after the season when Dwight lived in LA during his playoff run ( or non run ), Alex had our new GM go to Dwight... I mean really? Your going to go to LA to see Dwight, your not going to make his butt come to Florida?
Yea, im not real happy with Alex. Because our franchise will never go anywhere if this is how he is.
