Re: How to avoid sucking as a team and other insights

I see the issues of both of those teams being more grounded in a lack of leadership at the coaching level than any locker room shenanigans. One could say the looker room shenanigans are because of a lack of clear leadership.

Children will inevitably be children..... However, those with good parents tend to not get stupid about it.

I was implying the other insights would be yours, but if forced...

What does it say about a culture that prizes irrational destruction and degradation of its people, and blames the victim? Life is hard enough without getting blindsided by those whose fortunes are tied to one's own.

The smarts thing can work both ways. It can help absorb and process complex concepts but it interferes with reaction time.

Re: How to avoid sucking as a team and other insights

This thread title cracks me up...

Anyways, My first inclination about the Saints Locker Room is we're damn lucky we've got success on the field to keep guys from tearing each other up if we were losing...

But Payton cleared it out early in his tenure; and there's been continued subtle management of same...

Johnny Patrick, despite athletic promise, just disappeared in the night, quietly with little wah-wahing...

Chris Ivory, traded, and not too bad a return in John Jenkins, though I question giving up BOTH 4R picks when he probably would have been there anyways...

Carl Nicks, we really could have made the contract work considering what we've wasted/spent on Grubbs, but he got to Tampa and well, he did some wah-wahing...

Seems like if you start Wah-Wahing, you get the fleur-de-lis in the @$$ on the way out the door...

I don't know what you're talking about, Tim Tebow is clearly the best pure quarterback this league has ever seen, he'll win three Superbowls in the next two years.

















I'm sorry, I couldn't keep from laughing.

Hazing and harrassment (aside from sexually harrassing female military members) has been a court marshall/dishonorable discharge offense in the military for quite some time.
