Some Training Camp Notes

17 posts in this topic

One thing I've never understood: why is it considered a 'veteran' move for a player to bark at his teammate for a mistake?

His teammate KNOWS that he's made the mistake. He doesn't need some jackass rubbing it in.

A veteran move would be to take that player to the side to explain what they did wrong and how to fix it.

I wouldn't try to over analyze the first day of camp. I tried to post facts with minimal opinions because the reality is everyone practices at their own speed. Some guy are in the best shape of their lives while others need a week of camp. There are no pads so some guys aren't being physical. Andre Neblett is trying to save his job after a failed drug test. Silatalu is locked into a multi million dollar deal. So read it, digest it, but don't lose sleep over it.

Everyone responds differently to criticism. For some people yelling works, others need to an arm on the shoulder. It's good that the rookie has pressure applied to him to succeed.

Sione Fua after his pick, "Damn, big man, run!"

That's funny.
