    I did think indiscipline and entitlement was at the root of iffy performances.

    @soulberry_______ya I agree. Aussies ruled the world as they were aggressive; but there's a thin line between aggression and indiscipline. In other words, one can say that, the trait that served them then, is hurting them back.

    Entitlement can also arise from the feeling of invincibleness; and aggression constantly feeds invincibility.
