Quote from: Waffler on February 22, 2024, 08:27:07 PMPeople compliment how calm and cool we are when behind and you can't tell we are worried. Veteran poise. When we come back and win this is a great thing but when we don't it's terrible. Not enough fire. Two sides of the same coin, this is the team we are and it wins more than it loses.Well I do. We have nobody who gets in the grill of players and gets them going. Harris used to come onto the field and get the O line going before the first snap and then when he d get a decent gain, he'd work on whipping the crowd into shape and get them going. Brady tries to do that but he doesn't do it to the extent Harris did. Harris refused to lose, he would not have anything to do with that, he was possessed to win and he singe handedly willed us to win the GC. Without him we wouldn't have done it. And after he left, we haven't won it since. Coincidence?? Hardly
I have zero worries about someone stepping up on this team, we have leaders here aplenty.

This was a weird year with our top $$ FA questions unanswered for an extra couple of weeks. Biggie hints that this may have caused the comms trouble. Maybe.
My question is: so how did we handle top-10 player shedding in the past? Is this normal for KW? Or is this year really out of the ordinary? Who are the departing stars in previous years, and did they get better comms? No? Then this is normal and just the way KW does it, for whatever reason.
We all know the famous AH debacle, but how about non-AH players?
I'm sure there are very good reasons for the way KW handles it other than "I'm a mean guy". You could also try to compare to how other teams handle things...
