Alright, I will let you get back to practice.

---------

Ashley, can you gather the entire team and coaching staff on the practice field?

---------

Gentlemen, I know this season hasn't gone as we thought it would. But there are still a lot of games left for us to show why we are two time champions. To remind them all just how dangerous we can be. Because when I look around I see a team that is still capable of winning championships.

We have a defense that can keep other offenses in check, and an offense that can score points at will. And now that we are healthy, we can see all of that through. We can go out there and forge our way towards history. Towards a third title in a row.

I know we have the talent to do so, I know we have the personnel to do so. I believe in each and every one of you. So lets go out there and light up the Knights. Let's go out there and scorch some Earth like we know we can. Lets go out there and win!

I agree. I guess that's the risks playing against a defense like Vegas'. I think against a lot of others, we don't run into those interceptions.

I'm going to leave things the same this week against San Antonio. I'm hopeful we can build off of what happened last week.

I can understand that. I’m hopeful Pullen can bring in some out what Luis did across from you. Anyways, thanks for stopping by to talk, Alonso. I will let you get back to practice.

Coach Wright please.

Coach, I gotta say, putting up 29 on Vegas was nice. Seems like you balanced idea worked in the regard of moving the ball more. What did you think of the game?

I agree. I think last week was a good sign for us going forward so hopefully we can build off of it going forward.

Do you see any reasons why we might be struggling? I know it’s not something to normally ask a captain but perhaps you have some information I don’t.

Ashley, Alonso Lightner please.

Alonso, how are you doing? You’ve had a great season so far and are really a big catalyst for the defense. I wanted to take a moment now that we are at the halfway point, check in with you as the captain and see how you felt things were going.

That's my goal too, everyone making the plays that need to be made to get us back and keep us in the hunt. There are still lots of games to do that in. I wouldn't say you are holding the team back at all - we've been ravaged by injuries which I think caught up to us at points.

Is there anything I can do to help out a bit? As one of the captains on the team, I wanted to get your thoughts, see if maybe there's something going off the field I can help with.

Jose, how are you doing? I know this season might not be going as we are accustomed to, but there are still lots of games left to get things going. How are you feeling about the season so far?

Excellent, good to hear. With more practice and more games it should get even better.

Apologies for being all over the place with my questions Coach, just eager to get things back on track and last week showed me it’s on he brink of being there.

Ah well then perhaps we will leave our attack balanced and make them worry about them both. It seemed to work well enough against Vegas.

How did Pullen look in his first game for us?

« on: July 13, 2018, 08:51:34 PM »
That was my thought too.

Now we play San Antonio who is also having a good year. I believe they struggle against the pass more this year so maybe we should look to air it out more. How do you feel we stack up?

General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: July 13, 2018, 06:55:32 PM »
It could be a combo of those for sure. I plan to give a bit of a rallying speech to the team before we head to the game. See if maybe I can light  a fire under them.

It is nice to know we are close to being fully healthy. And when we get Salmon back it will be a big boost.

Hopefully all of that will get us on track.

What were your thoughts from this past game?

Thank you again sir. Take care.

—————

Ashley, can you send coach McCarthy in now?

—————

Well coach, not the outcome we wanted but I think there are positives to take from the game against Vegas. If that kick is made things are different, but we still had some good things happen. The defense had good moments, our offence found ways to move the ball and score against a tough defense.

Going forward, we’ve got a tough task ahead of us, but I think we can play some good games, win, and get to the playoffs. I want to get to the playoffs.

So let’s get down to brass tacks, what’s stopping us from doing so? Has it just been the injuries we’ve had that have made it harder to get as a team or is there something more?

We definitely have had our fair share of ZONKS, but I know we can right this ship and get us back to where we all want us to be. Thank you for your support and as long as we can avoid the ZONKS, we should have something to cheer about.

1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

That’s a tough game to lose. We battled Las Vegas all game long, went shot for shot almost, but in the end we came up just short. Kind of an unlucky way too since 99 times out of 100 Hernandez makes that kick to win the game. There are positives to take away from the game though like putting up 29 points on a historically good defense, which could of been more of it was any other defense. Richard Council stuns once again with another return touchdown. All in all we played a good game just came up a bit short at the end. There are definitely things to build off of going forward.

2. Give us an evaluation of the first half of the season for your team, who has stood out both good and bad?

Not quite where we wanted to be halfway through the season, but it’s not the end of the world. The way we have played recently, we should be able to right the ship and make a serious charge for the playoffs. It won’t be easy but I have faith that this team can come out guns blazing in the second half.

Who has stood out? In the flurry of injuries that have hit us, Morris Kennedy has stepped up to be a big contributor on our defensive line. He’s been a pleasant surprise for us and has opened up some possibilities down the road. Jason Webb continues to light up the opposition with tackles trailing only Larry Stevens in that department.

3. With where you sit in the standings, how do you feel about your chances of meeting your owners expectations and how do you grade your performance as GM, what about your job security?

We might not be able to satisfy all of the owners expectations, but I think we can still satisfy most of them. We sit 4-4 but there are still a lot of games to play. We have to chase down a few teams to get further, but it’s not an impossible task.

As for myself, I’d likely rate my performance as decent, around a B- somewhere in there. I had some missteps early this season but I think that since then we’ve got this team pointed in the right direction.

4. Who is your league-wide Mid-season MVP?  Who has been the most surprising under performer?

Seeing what he did against us, it’s hard not to pick AMC. He’s got talent in spades and when he gets the chance he really shows it. Seeing it first hand really shows you how good he is.

5. Which of your division rivals has surprised you the most? How and Why?

Seattle and St. Louis. Both have talent on their rosters but going into the season I didn’t think they would sit first and third in our division. I thought St. Louis would struggle and Seattle would sit middle of the pack. They have both definitely surprised me.

6. With the Trade Deadline coming up this week, Do you see yourself as a buyer, a Seller, or do you plan to hold fast with what you have?

We made a deal last week to bring in a player so I think we are going to hold tight and move forward with what we currently have on our roster. We should also be getting Salmon back soon which is a trade in itself.

7. What is your opinion on the league's newly announced luxury tax rule, do you believe it is fair, and do you believe it will benefit the league?

It’s an interesting new development, and I think it will benefit the league. It will likely cut back on the salary trades around the league, and might have some rethinking trades at this deadline.

8. Talk about your game this upcoming week, what do you need to focus on most?

We take on the San Antonio Knights. They’ve had a great season and are definitely a force for us to take on. To have success we are going to have to make sure our defense is on point, and contain their offense. Keep the pressure on Daley and force him into some bad choices. For us, we will need to spread the ball around, to keep their defense off their game. These are both things we should be able to do, and it should result in a win for us.

I’m inclined to check on Gates. I find it slightly odd that as soon as Kirk throws out his lame “nobody talks in day one so they’re scum!” post that he immediately comes on and says he doesn’t remember where the Mafia forum is?

I didn’t say I forgot where it is, I said that I hadn’t checked because it’s been awhile since we had a game (let alone a game I’ve played) and it had slipped my mind.

17
Vote: Kirk

That seems like too obvious a move and that you are trying to piggy back off the argument from Day One to catch the inactives into a mis-lynch.

18
I kept forgetting to check the mafia section further down the board, that’s why I only had the one post. This is what happens when we don’t have mafia for awhile lol. I will do a better job going forward so that I can add in more of a contribution.

Beyond that I don’t have anything to add from last night. I’m of the mind that one of Powers or Pancho are scum, I just don’t know which one as of yet. I’m going to go back and read their argument/discussion to see.

Alright, gentlemen, I made a trade to improve our defensive backs. Hopefully that gives us a bit of a shot going forward. As discussed, we will go with a more balanced offensive approach, and hopefully we can give the Scorpions a run for their money. It won't be easy, but I think we should be able to test them.

I can see the gears starting to turn about all the possibilities.

While I have you, do you see any other areas we should likely improve upon? I had thought Linebacker, but with Salmon due back in a few weeks, we could always slide Gaskins back if we felt we needed more help there. Getting Salmon back is almost a trade in itself.

Coach, I know Vegas is tough all over on defense, and while we have found success with more passing, I was thinking of maybe leaning slightly more on the run. Looking back at some of their games this seasons, teams seemed to have better success on the ground. Admittedly it’s limited. It would likely be the same splits we’ve been using, just flipped. What’s your thoughts on it?

29
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: July 02, 2018, 06:18:12 PM »
That’s fair coach. I only ask because it’s looking more and more unlikely that we are able going to be able to trade for an improvement so was hoping that we could work in house to try and get him on track.

Beyond that though coach, I don’t think there’s anything else to discuss. Unless you have anything pertaining to this past weeks game or next weeks that you want to talk about.

30
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: July 02, 2018, 06:33:58 AM »
You’re right coach. It is tough especially at this time.

I’m thinking of sending Richmond for a little extra positional practice this week, see if that helps spark something in him. I know before you said that really all we can do is wait and see, maybe get lucky with a speech, but do you think he’d be accepting of extra practice?

31
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: July 01, 2018, 10:59:29 PM »
That’s what I was afraid of. Alright we will roll with what we’ve been doing and hope our defence can hold them at bay.

Speaking of the defence, with the trade deadline coming up, I was wondering about upgrades. Obviously defense is where we can try and upgrade and I assume you and Coach Barbour have discussed this to some degree...is there a position you and the staff think we need to upgrade at? Or would we be alright holding tight?

32
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: July 01, 2018, 05:15:51 PM »
The only thing I could see changing is the blitz, but nothing personnel wise. But if you feel like everything is as it should be, then we should be good to go for our next game.

It was nice to see Pruitt find the end zone through the air though, nice to see our passing game get back on track. In regards to that, I was wondering...Vegas has a tough defense, is there anything to changing who our primary receiver is? Would we actually gain anything by doing that?

33
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: June 29, 2018, 12:12:55 PM »
That we did coach. We went shot for shot with them for awhile until the end there when they got those last two scores. Do you think there is anything there we can change going forward or keep things as is, considering we are facing some tough teams coming up.

34
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: June 29, 2018, 10:24:35 AM »
That was a good moment wasn’t it? Sure, I wasn’t happy when AMC ran it back for a touchdown, because usually those don’t get returned in kind. But once Council got free running room and was gone I was fist pumping with the best of them. Council, just like the whole team, gave it their all and never gave up.

That whole sequence was like a roller coaster.

35
General Manager's Office / Re: TEAM: RAPID CITY INFERNO
« on: June 29, 2018, 06:42:15 AM »
1. Talk us through this weeks game. What went wrong?  What went right?

We played a good team but were on the wrong side of the outcome. What went wrong was that we ran into the buzzsaw of AMC. That kid has a lot of talent, and he showed it and we couldn’t stop him. He carved us up and was the main factor that we lost. If we would have been able to contain him a bit more we could have snuck out with the win. St. Paul also has a great defence and an impressive front line which limited our rush game.

It was nice to see our passing game having success. The media was worried last time about Pruitt’s lack of touchdowns, but I never was. I know he had the talent and ability and he showed it. He’s always been a driving force with his game management. In the end our performance wasn’t enough, and we end up taking the loss. However it’s not all bad as our division is still pretty bunched up.

2. Talk about this weeks league news, what stood out most to you? (cover at least two topics)

There were a fair number of trade rumors in the news, whether it was the big trades the Insiders has thought of or the players requesting trades. It’s always eye catching because things like that can shake the foundation of a team. Plus, it’s nice to know who might be out there for trade to help our team.

And the big news of the week is the Crowe news out in Atlanta. Its a tough situation that’s for sure. I guess Crowe finally reached his breaking point with the GM he hired and didn’t care what happened. In any case, it will be interesting to see what happens with the sale, and if the team stays in Atlanta or not. And if Lucas stays or not.

3. How did you feel about the first annual HIFL/NCAA Showcase?  Do you feel like it was a beneficial addition to the league?

I think it was beneficial. It definitely gives us a bit more insight into certain aspects of the rookie pool and allows us to have a better idea of where we want to go Come the combine.

4. What was your take on the amount of GM errors that occurred during the bye-week?

Whenever trade fever hits the league, there are always a ton of errors to go with it. Math, roster spots, non-existing players, there’s always something, and it can negatively affect a GMs job. Sometimes it pays to check the facts and figures ten times over before making a move.

5. Do you plan on making any call ups this week before locking in?

We will take a look at things and see what’s best for the team.

6. Talk about your game this upcoming week.

Things don’t get easier as we take on Las Vegas, who have been on a record pace on defense. It’s going to be a hard job to pick them apart, but I feel as though we have the ability to do just that, more so then other teams. It won’t be a high scoring game, but I think we can end with the most points to take the win.

Excellent, glad we are on the same page.

That’s all I had for now, coach. If anything comes up I will let you know. For now I will let you get to things.

Coach Barbour please.

Coach I wanted to talk to you about Greg Adams. I know it’s only been 2 games, but what do you make of him? Good or bad. I wouldn’t mind trying to keep him involved now that everyone’s healthy, maybe it can help stave off more injuries down the road.

Maybe we will put a pin in that for now.

Looking ahead, I wanted to ask...what did you think of our overall performance last week? I am thinking of keeping our strategies the same out of the bye, which means the same 60/40 and the 60% blitz. I think it gives us a great chance to win.

Do you think there is something we could do to maybe improve his work ethic? Or is it something that is more for him to work out on his own.

That they did they really showed what they are made of on the field.

Speaking of the defense I wanted to talk to you about our corners. Maybe this is a question best directed at Coach Barbour but I wanted to pick your brain about James Richmond. Obviously this past week wasn’t the best for him and I’m just curious, from what you’ve seen, is this what he is or would a little extra work help to unlock anymore potential?
