Big egos certainly wouldn't last very long at Dundee United according to their manager Peter Houston.
The Arabs boss says that he has never had to use the big stick approach to keep his players in line, and besides Jon Daly is always there in the dressing room to keep everybody in order.
"One thing we don't have here is any big egos because if people are not prepared to work hard and muck in there's no place for them," Houston told the Daily Record.
"You wouldn't last five minutes with the likes of Daly around. Everyone gets treated the same and I don't have to police the dressing room because Daly does it for me. They sort things out themselves."
The Arabs already have a self-imposed fining system between themselves to make sure that nobody breaks the rules for long.
"They have a fine system of their own and are always catching each other out with things like being late or using phones in the physio's room," he added.
"Sean Dillon collects the cash. They give some to children's charities and keep some for their Christmas night out."
And it would appear to be working perfectly as Houston has been delighted over the condition of his charges following their return to training.
"I could tell how professional they are by the way they came back from the summer break," said Houston. "They had a lot of celebrating to do after winning the Scottish Cup but their fitness is great."
