    Congrats! We applaud our players for doing the right thing. You deserve all honors that have been bestowed. But let’s get real……….. we want to see them getting trophies for winning games, tournaments. This is why they are called “football” team.

    Let’s get real indeed! If we want them bringing back trophies from winning games and tournaments, then we have to INVEST in them and SUPPORT them – BEFORE we send them out there, not while they are out there playing the game already.
