I holler about Gold Rush
You need no further proof than when James Harness brought his girlfriend into camp during Season 2. Any real leader would have stuck a boot in James’s ass and made him either repair the equipment or leave the camp permanently.
Just imagine for a moment if James Harness would have been working for Dakota Fred. Dakota wouldn’t even let his son Dustin rest in the trailer when he was sick and running a fever. Instead Dakota Fred pushed his son to get inside the equipment and run dirt.
Dakota Fred would have lit a fire under the ass of James Harness and made him produce… or Harness would have been dismissed from the crew immediately.
And that’s exactly why Dakota Fred will bring in the biggest haul of gold in Season 3.
Todd Hoffman lacks the ability to call the shots because he is lazy (damn just look at him). Most often he doesn’t even know what is going on (cause he’s not really interested) and then feels timid about telling anyone what they should be doing.
If Todd was really in charge he would simply tell the guys what they should do. He would be involved… heavily involved and wouldn’t care if the guys liked it or not. He would have a vision and implement it… even if he pissed off a few people along the way.
And that my friends… is the difference in Todd Hoffman and Dakota Fred. Dakota will make it happen… because he IS A LEADER. He’ll piss off whoever is necessary to make his boys get off their asses and give 150%. Period.
It’s no wonder that Dakota Fred took the mine from the Hoffmans. My goodness.. how long should a capable leader stand aside while a bunch of half-asses ruin a good gold claim?
Good for you Dakota Fred! God bless you in Season 3!!!
If the Hoffman crew was smart… they would fire Todd Hoffman immediately and anoint Dave Turin as the leader of men. Dave has all the qualities of a great leader… that man will produce gold… I’ll bet my blog on it!!!
