At some point in its life, every team will have a bad egg. If it isn’t a hiring mistake that brings someone in, it can be a business choice or financial change that sours (if even only temporarily) a previously great player. What separates poor and mediocre teams from the great ones is their ability to effectively quarantine the disgruntled teammate until such time as the problem can be corrected. If the group can’t isolate the individual and continue to function at a high level, they run the risk of completely imploding. An ineffective dynamic can spread and negatively impact the entire organization.
