Re: Among Saints' issues: Too many guys late for meetings, flights

There is a mantra in the military...if you can't pay attention to detail in the office & during exercises (i.e. being on time for work & meetings, doing your job during simulations), how in the hell can we expect you to help us win on the battlefield?

It's a whole attention-to-detail mindset for an entire organization...Payton lost this team from the get-go in 2014 apparently. Borrowing from Barney Fife, he did not "nip it in the bud" early enough. Folks being late for meetings & flights is not "fine worthy"...like somebody said earlier: that multi-Super Bowl winning Head Coach up in New England handles his business.

Re: Among Saints' issues: Too many guys late for meetings, flights

I dont see how people struggle to turn up on time. It drives me nuts, my sister is like it. Im on my walking to work now 05:33 , ill be there in 10 mins and I dont start till 06:15. Why? , leeway, if I wake up a little late or get stuck on the way in I have 30mind to make sure im not late.

Everyone will be late once in a while but it's generally the same people time and again. Its nothing but a lack of respect to your teammates, organisation and fans

I read a very interesting article the other day that correlates anxiety with being late. Basically, people who are habitually late are that way because getting there early makes them feel self-conscious without other people around to divert the attention.

Not that this has anything to do with the 2014 Saints, just maybe something to think about next time you're mad at your sister for being late. If it applies.

No way does that apply to her,she is a nurse is around people all day and the very outgoing. I'm the one who doesn't like being around people.

Interesting though as i have never heard that

Re: Among Saints' issues: Too many guys late for meetings, flights

It doesn't matter who the offenders are. What matters is that Coach did lose the team which was evident on the field. He loosened his grip and paid for it. The coach must keep the respect of the players, treating everyone fairly no matter what their status is on the team. He has to set the tone and keep the team in line. it sounds like that never happened this year. I don't know why he was easy on the team in 2014. The evaluation of what went wrong starts with Sean Payton. A lack of discipline does affect what happens on the field.

To me it matters who the offenders are. I want them gone. If you can't hold up the standard then GTF outta here.
