    Chub you need to talk to Joe Two Rivers.  I don't know if we'll be able to get your medication all the way back here in the bush.

    Joe MacCarthy got a reaction from General Apathy in Which defector are you least pissed at?   
    The whole snowflake argument about being cut from a youth team, and using that as an excuse a la Ho sickens me. 
    Angelo Esposito (once touted as a number one draft pick) was cut three times from the highest profile youth team in the country.  Unlike some, he had the nads to persevere and made it on his fourth try.  He ended up scoring the gold medal winning goal on a line with John Tavares, Nuf ced.

    Totally agree with this.  Was it Mike Tyson who said everything changes when someone gets punched in the face.  One goal, and its timing, can change everything.  It used to drive me nuts when people here used to deride Ali Gerba who seemed to be the only guy who could consistently score.  I could care less if he looks like Fatty Arbuckle if that one goal a game can change the whole complexion of the match.

    Totally agree with all three parts of your post.
    Simple logic dictates that if we can be competitive with a number six ranked Colombia, a few years ago, that with a few intangibles going our way we may get better results.
    How did Canada go from winning no gold medals at our own hosted Winter Olympics to being one of the top countries in the past two Olympics and forecasted to do well again this month.  We reallocated our resources, built upon our strengths and introduced programs like Own the Podium and the lesser known Top Secret program for Vancouver.  The Top Secret program involved many things, just one part of which are some of the things Herdman is trying to implement.
    Because of his success with the women's program he might be trusted to be given the reins to resources that a newer, lesser known coach may not have ie more money
    Just so people know we're I'm coming from, I have never said he's going to be a success and will lead us back to glory, but I have said he's done enough to earn that chance to try and prove it.
    We tried a lot of different coaches and most have come up wanting, I do know trying the same approach won't work because we've tried them and they haven't.  If Herdman can bring something new to the table I'm all for giving him the chance to do so.

    One thing amidst all this psychological mumbo jumbo Herdman may be bringing to the CMNT is that the women never seemed to have a problem playing in the belly of the beast, they never seemed to be bothered playing on the road.
    Granted, they might be afforded a far different audience and reception than the men but they never seemed intimidated.
    If Herdman can bring some of that to the men's team, it will hold them in good stead.
    This post is over, I've run out of cliches.

    I have always advocated that for years, people can go back and check, and the attitude among many soccer fans has not been good and I have been vilified and accused of trolling for pointing that out.  Soccer mom is a pejorative to many soccer fans.

    You mistakenly attributed the quote you posted about to me.  I would never, ever espouse that.  Mentioning Trudeau in a sentence would make me gag, it's doing it to me now.

    Sad state of affairs when I can't tell Jeffrey he is full of **** and he can't call me an ******* (with points and arguments).  Why change the tone of what has worked for over 20 years? Killing threads equals bad news.

    This is a funny way of showing it:
    Can everyone stop defending this decision, it is sickening. I am personally going to call for Reed to resign and plan to pressure so that Herdman is canned asap, it is intolerable.
    This guy is a bad apple and I frankly don't want him anywhere near our program, what a lack of team ethics he has
