I hope you see the big picture. Not sure where you're background is from... I know Mr. 97 is a former Saint/ Viper... I cant imagine how far from that "same outfit" they will grow. Even when notable teams change names but keep the same players - they're really still the same...? Im afraid "you" Mr.97 - dont realize that... Before the Tornados regrouped in '08, my best two moves happen before the idea spawned... In '05, I went and joined the Hurricanes (after the Tornados ceased operations) - that created some new alliances, new exposure to talent in the city... Then in '07 (when the Hurricanes ceased operations) I commuted to Chicago - because all of Indiana was "bush league" - and played for Kane County (Il.)... this allowed me to see how a 1st class multi-National Championship tram operated... needless to say - experience speaks volumes... There is no advice I can give that will make the ship sail smooth for you... just a warning! If you as an org is inapt at any point, whether its on the field, coaching, or management... its over... period. So dont think year 1 - "its bumps and bruises until the next year" - its too late by then... too many sharks in the sea - just ask around...


I understand what your saying triggs. The thing about our situation is those who we felt could help us win is staying. We have talent but with the things we had to endure last season, will give us a better understanding on what to expect and how to go at certain situations. All im doing from my prospective is instilling a winning attitude in my players. All we can do is go up from here. We have a chip on our shoulder, and the only way of getting it off is by going out and winning next year.
