They just haven't been doing the right thing. It's unfortunate that I have to take the heat. If I'm not there, I don't know what's going on. It's a call for me to really tighten down on who I'm trying to take care of. When it all boils down, people will try to take advantage of you and leave you out to dry. Lesson learned for me." (Gorant, 45) The Operation "Vick would be the money man and (Quanis) Phillips would oversee the operation while (Tony) Taylor took care of the dogs" (Gorant, 30).
