- AFL Club
I don't stress *during* games too much, because I know our best football is good enough and you can easily tell when we are "on" and when we are not. If we get to half-time and we're not playing our brand of football, then a loss is almost certain (e.g. the game against Norf). Luckily that doesn't happen too often.Don't get me wrong, i used to stress and worry with the best of them but then one day a few years ago i thought to myself after worrying myself sick with stress................
why am i stressing, it's not my contract on the line, i'm not the one facing being delisted if i have a shocking season or two and from that point on i decided to just have fun and be positive because losing is going to hurt the players more than me.
I'm not stressing *before* the PF because you can just tell - these guys are ready. We'll win. I don't know if it will be easy or hard, but I know we're a better side than Geelong and we're going to beat them. Only injuries can stop us on Friday night, but there is nothing we can do about that other than cry into our beer (e.g. Leon Cameron when he heard about Lachie Whitfield).
