Anoddah week.... anoddah beating.
Boy, wen it rains it pours for our young men in green and our Warriors suffered yet anoddah humiliating loss.
But wea were you?
Ok, so maybe not WEA were you but how come all da boo's? I know Halloween is coming up but c'mon no need put down da only team we "should" be supporting. Wen we were winning, it was green fever all ovah and people were jumping on da bandwagon left and right but now in these hard times you couldn't give away game tickets.
Wassap Wit Dat!
I know wat you guys thinking *BL already hearing OLis saying it*, it's always been - and forevah will be - about winning and da Benjamin's.
But last time I checked..... support was free.
You no like support 'em? No buy da ticket, no go to da game, no buy da hats, no buy da shirts and then go moan and groan and b!tch all you like.
There's no need to boo, cuss, yell things you wouldn't say in front of your mother to da players who are buss'ing okole right on da field. There's no need to pour any more Hawaiian salt on da wound during a game wea da seconds couldn't tick any fastah. You don't think da player's hearts are hurting by their (lack of) performance? You don't think they have any pride? Then you hear, "fire da coach!".
WASSAP WIT DAT!
Brah, give Coach Mac a chance. It's only his second year and on top of dat a new system, new direction and let's not fo'get all da injuries! Jus' imagine if you nevah got a "chance" for dat job interview or given a "chance" to make right.
And Coach Mac, we heard you da first time wen you said da players are buss'ing okole but it's getting old wen you say dat ovah and ovah again at every press conference. I hear ya! I personally wish I had a coach like you dat cared about da players almost, if not more, than da game itself but in today's world, sadly, nobody cares. It's about instant gratification and immediate glory.
I can guarantee you that on ANY team, while they preach team work and "there's no 'I' in team", there are more than a handful of players who are out for their own. I've played/coached on literally wat feels like a thousand teams and trust and believe I haven't witnessed one team wea EVERY single one thought about da team first.
So wat's da solution?
I have no frickin' clue oddah than Trust and Believe. You gotta trust and believe dat da coaches and players can get in synch. You gotta trust and believe dat our Warriors can dig deeper in their hearts and overcome. You gotta just trust and believe.
Oh yeah, all you guys who are da LOUDEST complainers and back seat coaches of them all......... STOP BETTING ON DA GAME and maybe then you'll be a true supporter or just no bet at all!
Or at least bet on da right side then maybe you not going get all agro and nutz eh?
While we all worried about not evah revisiting anoddah VonAppen era, we can be frustrated and express our disappointment but let's show a little class and not do it during a game crushing any spirit left by da players trying to gut it out. While there may be nothing to cheer about, negative energy works da same as positive energy, it can either help or destroy.
Let's keep da faith..... or at least keep your negative energy away from da game should you be at 'Aloha' Stadium.
