Out of 10 games, I'd say he went 100% in 3-4 of them, and he showed he was a great player, but in 6-7 of the games he was lazy, and showed that he shouldn't get a regular shift.
I know we are just playing for "fun" but it gets annoying knowing he can help the team sometimes, but most the time his play hurts us.
Ok, sound like no heart, no drive! So you want me to help you turn on the switch to make him go, do ya? How do your parents feel about his play? Maybe this is his way of getting attention.
Dude, I could spend hours and hours talking with you about how to help this guy get the jump. But to be honest, I have already wrote several articles on my blog about this. So, not to be an a** and put you off, but maybe if you took a few minutes to read some of the things that I wrote on my blog will or might just help.
If they don't, PM me and I will see what I can do to help.
