    i want to print out a banner that is about 8 feet long. Big enough for the players to see on the field, but not to sure what it should say.

    Winning is not everything, but wanting to win is.
    Vince Lombardi

    or
    There is no room for second place.

    What should i do?

    I like the one I saw a couple weekends ago that said, "The people behind this sign cannot see". At 8 feet long, that would really ring true.

    :D

    I think the Lombardi quote is "Winning isn't everything, but the will to win is everything.”

    However, he also said “If winning isn't everything, why do they keep score?”

    Why not just use the latter portion of the first quote... "The will to win is EVERYTHING"

    How about a sign saying "if you can read this, you're too smart to coach the Texans"

    I have a problem with anything that insinuates that the players don't want to win/aren't trying. Then again, I'm not the one making the sign.

    "Where are my playoffs?"

    "I can haz last place?"

    "I'm supposed to be paying for this?"


    I'll think up some more after I've had my after lunch coffee. :)

    You have to play this game like somebody just hit your mother with a two-by-four.

    I don't like to lose, and that isn't so much because it is just a football game,
    but because defeat means the failure to reach your objective.

    If you're reading this, the Texans are about to make a field goal, and your name is Kubiak :)

    Even better, dress up like a bar of soap, THAT would get the attention of the media :)
