You accepted a tough situation with optimism but wit ha toughness and resolute approach that probably has upset the more sensitive-type player and fan.
I cant comment on what all the recent firings, demotions and shuffling of the roster has done to "team spirit". But given last night you've done alright, Coach.
Also you had every right to blow a gasket last night on the poor officiating but you mostly kept your cool and showed some class.
Stomping up and down the sideline screaming at the refs with eyes bulging just would have made you look like a jackarse and would have set a poor example for team discipline.
You shrug off all the negativity and sniping from last week and led the team to a gutsy and RARE road win with a well prepared but still injured squad.
Coach Paopao deserves credit aswell. Once they discoverd what worked he stuck with it and didnt muck it up with any fancy stuff.
Coach Reed too, the defense took advantage of WPG's weakness which is what good teams do.
Well said!!! I too am happy with the Job Lancaster has done so far.
As for Paopao, I will definitely give credit where it is due. The offense came through and played well. We found our running game for the first time all season. Hats off to Paopao for coming through. Lord knows I have been on his case all year.
Once again the defense plays well. Nice to see them continuing to play well.
Does it in a professional way as well. I also liked the way he kept his cool when things didn't go well. You could see in his eyes that he was livid when told about the audio problem on the challenge but he kept calm. This kind of behavour sets a good example for the team. Get the win, don't let mistakes drag you down along the way.
