I thought when Billy said to the Fox commentators after the Shark’s game that the plan was for him to play as long as he felt comfortable with in the game and then they’d send Paixy on to finish off the game was such a poor egotistical boast. All he had to say was words like each game is different and I just do as I’m told by the coaching staff.Sorry for the cliffhanger. Figured it would come out soon. Apparently Paix and Kev had an argument on Tuesday regarding Paix’s role in the team.

It was live and he didn’t have much time to think but a very poor response nevertheless that made Paix sound like he was purely Billy’s stop gap. If I was listening to that I’d have words with the coach as well.
This father /son arrangement now has the potential to stuff an otherwise brilliant season.
I disagree. I think it shows passion and drive to want a bigger role in the side.I think this is a case of Paix convincing himself he's playing better than he actually is. When Billy is showing himself to be the better option at the moment I mean....What can you say about that?
I agree, I think Billy is going far better than Paix these last few weeks too. But I think how he handled the Fox interview was pretty insensitive from a team perspective.I mean, Billy has been doing really well. I’m probably Paix’s biggest supporter but even I can see that right now, Billy is going much better. I don’t want players just getting minutes ‘because’. Even if Paix isn’t happy, where’s he going to go?
