We may very well end up there actually... lol
In all seriousness, we are going to do big things but it takes a team to do it right. We all need to be 1 singular unit and realize that the whole is greater than the sum of it's parts... Meaning, the team comes first. No matter what.
Every player can be replaced, there is definitely not a shortage of players that want to play for the new team... So be aware of that.
There are going to be some things we do as a team that other speedball teams don't do... But it's going to be one of the things that makes us different.
This whole discussion will end up taking place when Dan gets around to making the thread...
Anyone who played with me knows that I lead by example... I wont ask anyone to do anything that I wouldn't do, and I won't ask anyone to do something that I don't think they are capable of. So if I ask someone to do something, it's because I believe that you can pull it off.
I have 1 major thing, and I'll go over it again at the field... If someone is coaching you, and they tell you to do something, you listen to it... Right or wrong, you do what they say... If you get shot out because of it, the coach gets yelled at for making the wrong choice... If you win the game because of it, you BOTH get the high fives for doing it right. If it's a 3 on 1, and the coach tells you to dive into snake and not worry about anything else, I 100% expect you to do that.
One of the big issues that I'm sure you guys saw at this event was that people were not listening to their team mates on the side lines... People were being told to bump up and they just sat in their bunker... TRUST US, WE CAN SEE MORE OF THE FIELD THAN YOU CAN!
I'm also proud of factory for NOT counter coaching syndicate... Whether some of them deserved it or not doesn't matter, you guys are a family and I respect that you held up your end of that.
If someone thinks people were counter coaching, I suggest you re-evaluate who you got your information from... There was 1 person on the sidelines yelling "Back left only" while 5-7 people were yelling that there were 2-3 alive still... So, don't blame the whole slew of people for 1 person for yelling "Back left only" That... is not counter coaching... That was someone who had too much to drink and didn't realize how many people were alive...
I 100% was going into this event wanting to counter coach both teams, I was asked not to so I respected that and helped out where I could.
Enough with this long *** rant... lol... We are getting ours this coming season... Overlook is coming with a vengeance!
