    I posted this during last year's finals series but it now seems more relevant than ever.

    Can someone get this to Geoff Pacino so he can use it on Any Given Friday before the boys head out onto the SFS?


    I don't know what to say really.
    Three minutes to the biggest battle of our professional lives all comes down to today.
    Either we heal as a team or we are going to crumble.
    Inch by inch play by play till we're finished.
    We are in hell right now, gentlemen believe me and we can stay here
    and get the **** kicked out of us or we can fight our way back into the light.
    We can climb out of hell.
    One inch, at a time.

    Now I can't do it for you.
    I'm too old.
    I look around and I see these young faces and I think I mean
    I made every wrong choice a middle age man could make.
    I uh....
    I pissed away all my money believe it or not.
    I chased off anyone who has ever loved me.
    And lately, I can't even stand the face I see in the mirror.

    You know when you get old in life things get taken from you.
    That's, that's part of life.
    But, you only learn that when you start losing stuff.
    You find out that life is just a game of inches.
    So is football.
    Because in either game life or football the margin for error is so small.
    I mean one half step too late or to early you don't quite make it.
    One half second too slow or too fast and you don't quite catch it.
    The inches we need are everywhere around us.
    They are in ever break of the game every minute, every second.

    On this team, we fight for that inch
    On this team, we tear ourselves, and everyone around us
    to pieces for that inch.
    We CLAW with our finger nails for that inch.
    Cause we know when we add up all those inches
    that's going to make the fxxxing difference between WINNING and LOSING
    between LIVING and DYING.

    I'll tell you this
    in any fight it is the guy who is willing to die who is going to win that inch.
    And I know if I am going to have any life anymore
    it is because, I am still willing to fight, and die for that inch
    because that is what LIVING is.
    The six inches in front of your face.

    Now I can't make you do it.
    You gotta look at the guy next to you.
    Look into his eyes.
    Now I think you are going to see a guy who will go that inch with you.
    You are going to see a guy who will sacrifice himself for this team
    because he knows when it comes down to it,
    you are gonna do the same thing for him.

    That's a team, gentlemen
    and either we heal now, as a team,
    or we will die as individuals.
    That's football guys.
    That's all it is.

    Now, whattaya gonna do?

    Didn't the coach and the best player leave the team exactly one half of one game after that speech?

    Hahahah this work colleague, who is a massive Tigers fans comes into my office to ask a question about a customer he's sitting with. I tell him to sit down, because I have something very important to show him, and that takes priority over the customer.

    He sits down.

    I start playing Eagle Rock. He rolls his eyes.

    I say to him, "now go back to your customer, because I want you to think about that, and come back to me by close of business, to tell me how it changed your life".

    "it makes me nautious" he explains straight away.

    I reply, "no mate, that's a D minus. Bzzzzt, that's a fail. Think about it some more, and come back by close of business. If you don't get to at least a B plus, your fired".

    He exited the office, to ponder his life, and hopefully his allegiances to those pathetic Toigers.

    I'd fire him just for not being able to spell nauseous. He'll never make management material with that literacy level.
