Win or go home - Oct 21, 2012

Many players and all Americans know this and if you don't you will find out quick . The game brings all of "us" players joy and we love the it. But there are things that can be fixed and we can start with clubs giving up on the import players so quick. We all know the local players almost never get released. The first ones to go are the imports (players from a different country then he is playing in) weather your having a good season or not if your team is losing you will be the escape goat. They will find a loop hole in your contract to get out of paying and at the end of the day when a player knows the club doesn't want him there why put up a fight to stay. I had to go through this my first year in Finland. I had a one month try-out period everything was good I got by that I was playing well but my team was losing and mind you this team was coming off a winning season the year before and ended up losing in the championship round. So we start the season having cut the first PG we started training camp with. After 2 loses to start the season we again cut the PG. at this point I was worrying about my job. I look up and we are 0-5 and again we cut the American PG. now every practice every missed shot every game is replaying in my head wondering what I can fix. Going on the road and getting our first win was great but I knew we needed more wins after a home win and a 20 point 7 Rebs game things were looking up for the team and me. I was so wrong I got a TEXT saying they was bring in a more experience player. To make this story short the guy that took my spot on the team was released a month later and the American 5 man was also sent packing. Know local players were sent home. So back to my point. Many of these men and women have family's firing them at a drop of a dime could kill there family's and there career for first or second year players . The way clubs use loop holes and dumb reasons to change players need to be looked into by somebody. I just want to warn new players and players that don't know things like this does go on its not all preaches and cream like many on the outside looking in may think. Players cant just leave a team because they dont like the city or coach or whatever. Players have to deal with whatever is going on because if the player tries to leave the club they will not pay for the flight home they will not release the player so he can play on another team. So why should the club be allowed to do this so easily. With me saying that players look into player unions in the country you are playing in. They have your back because without you there is not a union so just look into it they are very helpful.....

ADA BLOIS we are 4-0 after a good road win. We play a French cup game on oct.23 wish us luck!!!

Until next time TAKE CARE and GOD BLESS.....chosen last but best pick!!!
