Ignore these fools, knaves and incompetents Sweep. Sadly, they have descended into the abyss through too much porn and/or yoghourt knitting and are beneath contempt.

 

Wisconsin is the dairy state so it's inhabitants are known as cheeseheads. I actually have one here at my office! (a cheesehead titfer, not a native of Wisconsin).

Winning is not a sometime thing; it's an all the time thing. You don't win once in a while; you don't do things right once in a while; you do them right all of the time. Winning is a habit. Unfortunately, so is losing.

 

There is no room for second place. There is only one place in my game, and that's first place. I have finished second twice in my time at Green Bay, and I don't ever want to finish second again. There is a second place bowl game, but it is a game for losers played by losers. It is and always has been an American zeal to be first in anything we do, and to win, and to win, and to win.

 

Every time a football player goes to ply his trade he's got to play from the ground up - from the soles of his feet right up to his head. Every inch of him has to play. Some guys play with their heads. That's O.K. You've got to be smart to be number one in any business. But more importantly, you've got to play with your heart, with every fibre of your body. If you're lucky enough to find a guy with a lot of head and a lot of heart, he's never going to come off the field second.

 

Running a football team is no different than running any other kind of organisation - an army, a political party or a business. The principles are the same. The object is to win - to beat the other guy. Maybe that sounds hard or cruel. I don't think it is.

 

It is a reality of life that men are competitive and the most competitive games draw the most competitive men. That's why they are there - to compete. The object is to win fairly, squarely, by the rules - but to win.

 

And in truth, I've never known a man worth his salt who in the long run, deep down in his heart, didn't appreciate the grind, the discipline. There is something in good men that really yearns for discipline and the harsh reality of head to head combat.

 

I don't say these things because I believe in the ‘brute' nature of men or that men must be brutalised to be combative. I believe in God, and I believe in human decency. But I firmly believe that any man's finest hour -- his greatest fulfilment to all he holds dear -- is that moment when he has worked his heart out in a good cause and lies exhausted and bloodied on the field of battle - victorious.

Well I came runner up in my primary school table tennis competition and I was very happy with it. So tell Vince Lombardi to put that in his pipe and smoke it.

 

 

As the great man died of cancer in 1970, I can't.

 

It is good that you socialist types like coming second. In the coming years, I think you are in for a good number of happy days.

Got to admit, I really like Vince Lombardi quotes and I know very little about gridiron

 

Having said that I watched a programme on last year's Patriots that won the Super Bowl and I thought Julian Edelman came across brilliantly - ultra focussed and a brilliant winning attitude

 

That's about it :D

Back to the topic.

 

I much enjoyed jay cutler throwing another pick six and then fucking up him hamstring trying to make the tackle.

Almost as entertaining was Tony Romo having his clavicle smooshed

 

All them pads they wear must be faulty
