Afternoon Line

Any job I can think of that makes lots of cash..that person is a specialist. Meaning other people can not do the job as well. They train harder, are better educated or just plain blessed. They are not a dime a dozen unlike many other professions.

Sigh. Perhaps true in a perfect meritocracy, but not on this planet.

Clearly, other people can do the job better than Ellis, or else he’d still be in Dallas.  Instead, he’s been sent out of Dallas, and now Nashville.

I think by “other people,” he means the general populace, not other “goaltending specialists” who get paid more/are better than him. I do wonder which group Ellis classifies himself under though:

- Trains harder?
- Better educated?
- Just plain blessed?

Anyway, I guess it’s good to know he’s the kind of elitist turd who looks down on us “dime a dozen” sorts who allow him to make a lot of cash.
