I believe with Huet, though, because he's getting paid peanuts we expect the odd softy and therefore don't complain too vociferously. With Theo, being that he's getting paid astronomical amounts of cash, we expected big saves and certainly no softies. When a guy is receiving that much moula he's expected to be the "go to guy", "Mr. Clutch", "A God". Bottom line: Theo never demonstrated he could deliver us to the promised land and we were in a hole with his salary, so we had to let him go.
