Does anyone know if the big guys ever says anything

Postby MarioLives on Wed Jan 30, 2013 2:33 pm

I know it is a hard question to answer since none of us are in the locker room. But does anyone know if Mario every adresses the team when they go through these types of situations? I ask because as much as I love Mario, he was never known to be the hardest worker and pretty much got rid of coaches throughout his career. I am just curious if he has changed at all being an owner?

My guess is that he leaves it up to the coaches and the players. As he should IMO.

Mostly this from what I have gathered, but he does insert himself on rare occasion when needed.

Example: the texts he sent to the team following the game 5 blowout loss to Detroit in the SCF in 2009. Many of those players have pointed at that as a huge help to refocus and win 6 and 7.

Here's the thing though: we are not in dire straits right now. We are 3-3, 2 points back in the division. It's not closed door meeting time yet.

No preseason looks to be effecting some teams hard and we are one of them. The teams effected are some of the top tier franchises in the league.

Shhhh... don't you know it's total melt down / freak out time? We're 3-3 and not 6-0 with Malkin and Crosby at 20 points each. That means we stink, coach needs to go, star players are not interested, role players are no good, GM does not know what he's doing, and basically we're the worst team in every major sport EVER! Come on, get it together, man!

He says "this team stinks." You can read all about it in the thread above this one.
