You're right. They don't get it on so many levels. Their sycophantic ramblings are no surprise now, but they don't get the real essence of competitive sport. It's about struggle and effort and never give up attitude, and if you lose - you get up, dust yourself down, think about what you nay have done wrong, change some stuff and try again. This dickhead wants to give up now and tie one hand (or leg) behind our backs. All sport goes in cycles. The Magyars, Brazil 70, Cruyff's Ajax are all gone now. We'll be gone soon enough - enjoy the beauty while you can - and celebrate it.
