Maybe I'm taking that out of context, but why would they? They're skill players, not grinders. Just because your not playing like Dubi and Callahan, doesn't mean your not putting forth an effort.
When they're producing, playing more of a skill game and winning, why try and make them something they're not? Let them play their game.
I don't know if I'd call Cally and Dubi grinders exactly. I do agree that Gabby and Richards need to at least make their skill more evident during their shifts, because they're both absolute no-shows right now, especially Richards.
