Difference is that I can't affect the success of a sports team from my position. So whether I have a positive or negative outlook means nothing at all towards or against the success of this squad.
You are absolutely correct so why come in with a negative attitude? No one said you had to wear rose colored glasses and be a 100% homer but expressing a concern and bitching just to bitch are two totally separate things.
You got a beef. State your case.
Example: Bell on the Left Side. Management thinks he will be a better LT than a RT. Who are you and I to disagree. You think he has slow feet then there is your case. Say so. To say he sucks and we have never seen him there is ludicrous.
Too many people see these players as Madden objects. Give them a score and that's it. You got your label but in real life players change, grown and get better/worse as time goes by. No one knows for certain how well he will do on the left side until he actually plays there.
My point is,. have a little faith in who was hired to do this job. If they prove otherwise than we discuss options. Like you said we can't change anything. But we could discuss it without being negative or overly positive.
