Re: [Hyenas] Current situation!
- Hey (apparent team)
Ive just got back from a two week holiday in greece
tanned de-stressed and looking forward to suiting up
again for the Hyenas - OR I WAS.
I dont like taking sides in any argument as both sides
are a certain percentage correct and incorrect - so if
you wanna call me a fence sitter - thats exactly what
i am - andy im with you mate old school. I havnt
voiced my opinions in the team and after hearing what
Kay said in the AGM i didnt need too. Well said. : )
Since i joined in October the team has taken a sharp
vertical drop into minor junior league hockey between
players. This was one of the reasons i left playing
the sport when i was 14 and i dont intend to leave the
SPORT at 26. If a player does something wrong or gets
in the wrong position, they dont wanna be shouted at
in a "you dick head manner" (CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM IS
THE KEY) and ive only seen and experienced this a
couple of times.
Im not going to talk about any of the issues ive waded
through on email this morning but i am going to say -
Dave Simms you have helped me since the beginning and
i thank you for that, i will be sad to see you leave
the team, so stick around - its a crap situation for
you - the team and the board.
I have got on with the team since i joined and ALL
have helped me since october, just wish that
differences between players can be resolved, but i
think - and hate to say it that there is a certain
amount of unnecessary rebellion in the Hyena camp.
(Star wars punn intended)
I wanna play Hockey as much as possible and with all
this shite going down i would rather play chess - as
for sitting up all night editing the new york game for
the next four weeks after i finish work i ask you -
where am i surposed to get my inspiration from.
As for training this weekend im gonna take another
week off to de-stress it takes alot to stress me out,
and push my buttons, but by joe they have been pushed.
Good luck to those who play tomorrow.
Thought i would leave you with some definitions:
1. a group of people forming one side in a sports
2. a number of people organized to function
cooperatively as a group
somebody who is willing to work cooperatively with
others and to subordinate personal interests in order
to achieve a common goal
an enthusiastic attitude toward working productively
with a team or work group
