RE: MESSAGES OF SUPPORT
To the 17 heroes we saw last saturday night -
“Fight one more round. When your feet are so tired that you have to shuffle back to the center of the ring, fight one more round. When your arms are so tired that you can hardly lift your hands to come on guard, fight one more round. When your nose is bleeding and your eyes are black and you are so tired that you wish that your opponent would crack you one on the jaw and put you to sleep, fight one more round — remembering that the man who always fights one more round is never whipped.” James C Corbett
“They overcame the impossible by doing the unthinkable”
Teamwork is what the Green Bay Packers were all about. They didn’t do it for individual glory. They did it because they loved one another.
The greatest accomplishment is not in never falling, but in rising again after you fall.
"Winning is not a sometime thing; it’s an all the time thing. You don’t win once in a while; you don’t do things right once in a while; you do them right all the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.
"There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that’s first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don’t ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.
"Every time a football player goes to play his trade he’s got to play from the ground up — from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That’s O.K. You’ve got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you’ve got to play with your heart, with every fiber of your body. If you’re lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he’s never going to come off the field second.
"Running a football team is no different than running any other kind of organization — an army, a political party or a business. The principles are the same. The object is to win — to beat the other guy. Maybe that sounds hard or cruel. I don’t think it is.
"It is a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That’s why they are there — to compete. To know the rules and objectives when they get in the game. The object is to win fairly, squarely, by the rules — but to win.
"And in truth, I’ve never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn’t appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat.
“I don’t say these things because I believe in the “brute” nature of man or that men must be brutalized to be combative. I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man’s finest hour, the greatest fulfillment of all that he holds dear, is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted on the field of battle — victorious.”

RE: Frawley taps into flatmate Reynolds' advice for Bulldogs-Tigers clash
But the truth is -
Frawley asked over a few beers - truth poison - " what is Wests game plan?"
Reynolds - " To beat us you guys will have to play your best game of the season"
Frawley - “Who’s shout?”
Reynolds - " mine"
RE: Hayne is the King of Campbelltown today
Not only the Op Ink - but tomorrow’s papers.
Sorry to be a party pooper.
Yep… You’re on a par with the daily tele.
There’s no party
Sorry I don’t know what you are talking about Ink -
i think we’re on the same team -
- please don’t antagonize for me stating the facts - not only the tele but probably the Australian and the San Franscisco Times for all we know.
I’m with GNR - We’ll bounce back next week. Can we focus on this please.
RE: 2009 again Hayne flukes it
It stings, this one
ditto. but it was no fluke. He knew what he was doing cause that’s what he wanted. He stake a claim in the turf of his hometown. He wanted to acknowledge the birth place of his dreams. He acknowledged in the same breath that Moses and Tedesco are the future of the west.
RE: Team List R23 - NYC v Titans..
they made it look so easy - then mentally they collapsed in the second half. That’s a big problem. Good luck fixing that before the semi’s. The problem in First grade is only goal kicking. Less complicated. Or so it seems.
