These posts are starting to assume me at this point. I don't know if people are just bored and trying to make conversation or what. I am in no way a fan of Bagdad let me first state that. And for the most part do not condone the immense trash talking they do on the field. None the less anyone making a post that doesn't say Bagdad winning this game like the one before and before and before and so on is nuts. Those people bottom line just probably haven't seen Bagdad this year. Mogollon will not have nearly the size to compete with them. I think they dominated a big st. David team with there speed but Bagdad isn't far behind if not faster then them. The low's will swallow despain up. Gilbert Christian will be even less a competition. I'm actually glad after all the talk this year about gc competing with them to get spanked. Sure they have a fast offense but they will not be able to get passes off with the rush they face and there defense will not get one 3 and out the whole game. Pima will go into it trying to play smash mouth Pima football with them and will learn quickly that's not an option and will have to rely on there pretty good pass game but it just won't be enough. Sucks to say but those three teams are playing for 2nd place. Just gotta face the fact it's been bagdads year from the start. I don't mean to offend anyone on here and I'm no way trying to bash anyone else's team. If you have any objections I suggest you wait to speak them till the seasons over and see for yourself.
You misunderstood, Headthrough. My point was that Baller had assumed Bagdad and Pima would be in the state championship. I think that's a very big assumption because Mogollon might actually be the team that makes it in from that side of the bracket.
Trash talk? Maybe so as I haven't been on the field with the team during games. I for one have stated that character will be what wins a championship for BAGDAD. I have questioned if BAGDAD can win a championship because of their toughness and character. BUT... I have witnessed how the coaches have dealt with the team, and also as a parent have worked hard with my son to show strong character. I will say this, I was so proud of these boys when I witnessed how they played against PDS. I saw Bagdad plAyers slow down on tackles by picking them up and setting them down, helping them up and so on. This showed their character.
So to me you are questioning their character by your comments. I think you are being petty and looking for way to diminish what they have done this year.
Please read the famous quote the Man in the arena by Theodore Roosevelt... Are you a Cold Timid Soul?
Maybe HT99 wasn't trying to be petty either, Chapo. That was my point. I know the quote well and you implied that maybe HT99 was the cold timid soul that never entered the arena. It just amazes me how often people will accuse someone of something while simultaneously doing that very thing. So, yes, Chapo it looked to me like you were being petty while accusing HT99 of being petty.
And, by the way, that was a mostly pro-Bagdad post by HT99. It's the poor, hopeless other three remaining teams that were slighted.
Ok Dog I can see your point, but there is such a thing as a "back handed" compliment. Also remember that we are humans- we compete, we fight, we lose in agony, and revel in victory. Most of the time while we do these things we are opponents with differing opinions and insights. It's ok to disagree.
