AFL Legends 'The Coaches'
Regardless of all the theories and the strategies and all this. All it is is basically this. The ability to win the ball under pressure, select the right option, and execute it correctly. And the other thing is when you haven't got the ball is the ability to apply pressure to the players at all stages.
You've earned this opportunity. Some of the greatest players that have ever played this game has never ever been in this situation. Don't waste it, regardless of what goes on out on the ground. And long as we have the respect of each other, the respect of our supporters, anda the respect of the football community, then we have known we have done our best.
What you're gotta do is your gonna win this game today. Not only are you going to play it moment by moment, contest by contest, quarter by quarter, and regardless of what the scores is, do not accept what's going on. When the occasions come, lead by example, lift yourself and win the contest, that will win the game.
In every game there is going to be a crossroad, and when you get to that crossroad, you either step up, or step you down. It is entirely all up to you. You make the decision, not me.
