Strangely I find myself being slightly more optimistic about next season. This is in part due to my expectations (no chance to make top 8 when Turbo went down) and in part to the fact that I believe the team has had a red hot go in the past few games. This speaks to me of a good culture and they are backing the coach. While I am not completely on the GCKT train, I will say to watch some of the moments in the game yesterday, his smile, DCE taking time out after the game with him - points to entering the off season in a positive frame of mind. If we have something like Turbo/Koula, Saab, Koula/Turbo, Garrick, Paulo/Tui, Brooks, DCE, Aloai, Ola, Burbo, Paseka, Croker, Jakey res Sipley, Bully, GCKT/Humprey's, Schuster, Keppie - then I think we will be competitive.
