(Insert disclaimer about haters gonna hate)
It took me a while to realize why playing against Red was so frustrating. White has been beaten worse (e.g. Against Helen Yeller last night), so it's not *just* that Red is good. It's that they are the only team that can put 7 players on who all:
Own cleats
Know the force
Have ever said the word "stalling"
Can run
Can run to where the disc is going
Can jump (without injuring themselves or others)
Can throw something other than the dad-at-the-beach sidearm backhand
Are between 8 and 45 years old
Are taller than 4'9"
Know how to run into (and out of) open space
Etc.

Every other team I have seen/played against this league is playing a bunch of very rough rookies, and winning or losing by how they manage their team's weaknesses.

So yeah I guess it's great that Lawson is doing what I tried to do in 2010 (and ironically, Lawson was one of the unknown ringers that I was hoping would skyrocket the Orange team to victory!) and blowing away the FDA with a bunch of unknown athletes. But for the rest of us, we are arguably in the iteration of summer league with the least average talent.

See you in the finals, Lawson!

It was definitely a gamble, but it has paid off so far: we have an army of players (which has its pros and cons), they all know how to play a basic zone, and all work well together (along with the other attributes Chuck pointed out).

However, injuries are caught up with us a bit last night resulting in a great comeback by green and a humbling loss for us.

Looking forward to donating some more blood next week!

Cam's posts remind me of when we dressed up as wrestlers and said stupid shit in to the microphone about what whuppins we'd be dishing out.
