What Dominic Moore said on Toronto radio about Marty, losing and next season

DominicDominic Moore was on with Brady and Walker in Toronto this afternoon and said:

  • He is happy with how his Smashfest tournament has grown bigger and bigger.
  • On the season and losing, “We had high expectations for this season after where we were last season and it was a bitter pill to swallow losing how we did. All the teams that get to that point are good and the margins are small and we didn’t manage to pull off what we hoped to. It’s a war of attrition at that point and it’s a matter of who can finish the job.”
