"Every moment that you spend upset, in despair, in anguish, angry or hurt because of the behavior of anybody else in your life is a moment in which you have given up control of your own life." ~ Dr. Wayne Dyer
I can not believe the number of people that allow this board, this game we play & the politics it produces to control your life. I mean it is so totally unbelievable! I see it on Facebook, I get phones calls, I hear it in person & all I can do is sit back & laugh. If you guys are going to let all this CONTROL YOU, then maybe you should go & find a different hobby.

I happen to enjoy the game I play, I have never been in a fight on the field or in the parking lot, I have never been suspended or ejected from a game & I have never complained about the referees winning or losing a game for me. Every game, WIN OR LOSE, the only thing I look @ is "Did I do my job to the best of my ability?" That is it! I can not control what the other 30, 40, 50+ Players & Coaches, nor the Refs, what they all do on or off the field. All I need to do is worry about me & trust the guy behind me.
When I no longer enjoy playing this game, when a message board or the politics of Semi-Pro Football start to try & control me, is when I will hang up my cleats. Its called just being "Professional". Its called just being "Mature".

Take a moment & appreciate that we all are the ones that are able to wake up this morning & enjoy another day. Appreciate that we all are the ones that are still fortunate to still play this game. Even though we have all grew up from different areas & raised in different ways, even though we may play for different teams & in different leagues, even though we go to battle against each other & try & destroy our opponent each & every play, we are all out it for the same reason & for only one reason, FOR THE GAME WE LOVE! Don't let message boards, politics & gossip & rumors rob this away from us. To accomplish this is real easy to do! It is EXACTLY what I do!
"All YOU need to do is worry about YOU & trust the guy behind YOU." and ask yourself after each & every game, "Did I do my job to the best of my ability?" ~ Tailgater
i have asked my players not to comment on this sub its not the proper place to discuss league bus ,yes i have vid no the league will not be getting acopy no reason hard fought game but one thing jj is just aplayer when he is on the field he can not control this team its not his job his job on game day is to play football if we had aprob i would take it to league other players in thi sleague have thrown punches it happens doest make it right but emotions run high so remember if we are not pissed off why should anyone else be other than players threating us after game have no prob with playing them again
fact is we won and will win again if you make it to the ship to play us. if you dont like it tough. it is what it is.
ok CRUSH players we do our talking on the field with pads not on here!we make no promises other then we will give are opposition everything we have and win,lose or draw leave the field knowing we left everything on it ...coach eric
As a CRFL player who WAS at this game, I am going to try to be as neutral and factual as possible. I don't know if CRFL FAN has a personal vendetta out on the Crusaders or not, but I did indeed witness everything he mentioned in this post. The refs sucked in that the called almost everything (for both sides) and didnt let the game be played; penalties would have been about equal if it werent for personal fouls and sorry C-nation you can't blame the refs for that or for losing the game...it's your fault you have some dumb mouthy people on your roster...nuff said. Other than that game was fairly clean; I didnt see JJ punch #58, but did hear it on the Crush sidelines...if there is film of this it need to be shone. Crush, you wouldnt get the same courtesy...just saying. Most of the crusaders were good sports, but there were many that didnt even shake hands and one (#7, I believe) whom keep telling people to not even touch him.
@ "without a name it is rumor": I dont know how you can be so blind to what is being said from almost every team about the kind of (lack of) class from most of the crusade players. They are not all out to get C-nation, I mean look at crush they arent spreading any gossip. I am however personally offended with #28, whom which did grab his junk right in front of my nieces and nephews; what kind of pervert does that.
Apart from a couple of d-bags on the crusade (I mean every team has them, crusade maybe more than most), there were some good players and sportmen on both teams.
On a final note, returning back to blaming the refs...C-nation you guys CAN beat the crush I am sure, but from what I saw in that game it was only close because crush has a suck ass special teams. I heard from my teammate that their special teams has given up more points that their defense...ouch. Peace...
