Gale always seemed to manage to be in the spotlight, leaving Brian even more competitive. During the second season, Gale has an injury that could very well ruin his career and starts losing hope of ever playing again. Brian decides to push him and train him back to playing again with the idea that if Gale quits, and Brian does well, it's only because he quit, not because he earned it.
