Elliott has 2 t's but...
I agree with most of what you are saying.. besides positivity is so much better than the constant negativity on these forums. It's nice to know you believe in the team and havent given up hope. You know i wanna add this, you mention all the injuries and all that, the road trip (dont think its a factor), but... for all our injuries, 4 game road trip, for all of that...
we are only 2 games out of first with 12 games to go. That's the reality.
People writting the season off, 2 games out of first in the east, let's write the season off cuz yup, the next 12 are gonna be crap too. <-- thats the attitude that seems to be running wild on message boards and so called "fan" forums.
12 games left, 2 games out of first with all the injuries, the schedule(eventho i dont think its a factor, i think injuries to key players are tho) and people wanna give up, well to those people i say, please do, go away...don't post, you have written them off already, you know. how many times does it need to be said, THIS IS THE CFL, last year we started 7-1, finished 10-8, BC started 1-5?1-6? won the cup, sask this year, 3 weeks ago, 3-0, today 3-3.
Its just hillarious that people are writing the season off.
We need more posts like this on here, its positive, its interesting and it's not the same constant crap that you see on these boards.. EVERYONE KNOWS IT ALL yet most have probably never played a sport in their life..
blame this guy, blame that guy, unless this is the olympics and its the 100 or 200 metre dash..man, football is truly the ultimate team sport.
In hockey a good goalie can steal you games, and a superstar sniper too.
In baseball, a big time homerun hitter can win you games.
In basketball, kobe,lebron,durant.. they can win games themselves.
Football, its truly about the team and i think when i see topics based on "JOE MACK IS AN IDIOT" "IT'S ALL HIS FAULT" "LAPO IS AN IDIOT, FIRE HIM, ITS ALL HIS FAULT" "BUCHKO is a moron, its his fault".
Like im pretty sure most those people that are saying things similar to that, im pretty sure most have never played a team sport in their lives.
How is it the gm's fault? how is it the presidents fault? how is it the coaches fault even.. are they out there causing injuries? are they out there missing tackles, dropping balls, fumbling, throwing interceptions, are they the ones out there playing even? NO , they arent. Too many people blame people who dont deserve the blame and fail to realize that football is about team, ONE SUPERSTAR can not win games alone, the qb needs the receiver to catch the ball, he needs the oline to block, he needs his rb to do his job, the d needs to do theirs, special teams also, its the ultimate team sport. More people need to redneckonize that.. Oh ya, here comes honey boo boo.
a few years back i played soccer and hockey.. we won the city championship actually, represented manitoba even one time at a tournament in alberta. In hockey we won the cities also, i got to play in an all star game, even played a little bit for the st boniface saints, eventho i was underage and just basically a call up. i played. i remember what my coaches said tho after every time we won, and eventho above i mentioned football is the ultimate team sport and it truly is, the coach was asked by a friend and the friend said... i cant believe i did it... i cant believe i won.. the coach said to him and this is what sticks with me about winning championships and games, he said.. NO,WE DID IT, WE WON. There is no I in us, there is no i in team, you may have scored the winning goal but if he didnt score the other goal, or made that pass to you or he didnt make that big save with a few minutes to go in the game, we wouldnt have won anything.
It's not "i" and it's not about me and him or her or whoever, ITS ABOUT US, its not the winnipeg blue bomber.. Its the winnipeg blue bombers, meaning more than one. Sometimes people need to be reminded that its not always 1 or 2 people that win the games or lose the games, Its a total team effort when you win and its a total team effort when you dont.
