I was wondering Deano ;)

FWIW I agree with Matt, the players do try, rarely have I seen players not sweating and blowing out of their arse at full-time. Occasionally you see someone coasting, or not busting a gut but it is quite rare and it stands out.

Playing sport full-time at an elite level is hard to achieve, and even harder to sustain. That's bloody obvious. Same as being in the top 2-3% in any discipline. Ok it's well rewarded for the most part but that doesn't mean it doesn't require discipline and commitment.

I'm not criticising the lack of effort on the most part. When they do appear to ease off it's not about fitness, it's about motivation. Motivation to keep going when everyone is performing badly around you is bloody tough, if my colleagues are fucking everything up, it affects my motivation, it's natural. Why should I bust a gut if I know a colleague will still be shit and only fuck it up anyway.
