    Bubba is Bubba. He is a super talented and nice guy. But he has made some questionable decisions and historically has not had a good work ethic. With little or no training, Bubba can do things that most people would never be able to do. Garrett Scott was the same way. He could be in Atlantic city gambling until 4 am, get a ride back, and beat everyone in the room during a noon practice. It is easy to see why guys like that sometimes don't work all that hard (can anyone hear Allen Iverson right now?). The problem is the effect those guys have on the team, especially when they are nice guys and charismatic leaders (true of both). Suddenly, they are leading the team down a path where most people on the team won't succeed.

    Troy Sunderland declined Bubba's RS request as well and would have let him go after he tried to force RS. Both he and Cael knew what effect he was having on the team. Maybe being on a team with Robles showed Bubba what he could do with work on top of his talent. Maybe it was just his time to shine...

    Wow. This is like trying to explain stuff to little children. I was writing in response to comments that "Bubba got the last laugh on Cael" and "be careful who you kick off your team". I don't think Cael would be affected by such concerns in the least - which is what I was talking about when I said he wouldn't be bothered by the finals results. Do you think Cael had any second thoughts about his decision? I don't.
