We really need this win to show we break this cycle of trading wins and losses.

"Agreed Coach. We have a good chance to continue our winning ways against a winless Music City team, but I'm sure they will be a motivated bunch with the new hiring of GM Bennett. I think our run game can really give them fits though so I don't see any need in changing things up. You good with what we got or do you see something we should look to changing prior to the game?"

Music City is 22nd in the league in rushing defense, giving up 168 per game, and we are 3rd in rushing putting up just shy of 200 per game, I think we go with our strength and just keep pounding.  Their defense is also worst in the league in points allowed, so we should hopefully come up big with a nice win.

SEATTLE LUMBERJACKS
PRESS CONFERENCE


WEEK 6



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

"This was a closer game then the score may indicate as we really turned it on in that fourth quarter. Music City is a tough team especially in their home stadium and this was a game we dug deep late in the game and was able to escape with a crucial win. Not a whole lot went wrong in this game to be honest. I felt we controlled the clock with our running attack and converted on third down at a decent clip. Of course you always want a higher percentage converted on third downs and if there is one negative to this game, it was at that stat as it crippled a few potential scoring drives. Can't say enough about the performances of Carlson and Kirby... each week it's just been awesome to watch. But how Robert Brown? Two huge touchdowns late in the fourth to help put the game away! Brewster was efficient with the football, minus the one mistake as he was finding Pierce, Chriscoe, and Herzog on a consistent basis to complement the run game. Defensively, we were close to being shutdown outside a couple early touchdowns in the second quarter. Holding them to a 1 for 12 on third down is impressive, to go along with a 0 for 2 on fourth. Each week it just seems someone new steps up on defense and this week it was Lightner who was all over the field making plays and causing turnovers. This was an important victory and we look forward to building upon it."   

2. Talk about this weeks league news, what stood out most to you?

"I thought it was pretty interesting that whoever this legend of Long Beach is, is ready to give up on Jonathan Wright. I'm just not quite sure he has been built around good enough to be put into a position to succeed. Pretty unfair to give up on a kid who has as much potential as he does. It'll be interesting to see how GM Death deals with those behind the curtain voices. And of course I cannot go without mentioning the happenings in Tulsa. GM Franchise has to get his house in order, because that whole situation was almost a complete mess."   

3. What do you make of the news of the newest GM's to join the league? What advice would you give them?

"HIFL has needed some new GM blood for quite some time and it's good to see some motivated individuals ready to take the reigns of some teams that badly need guidance. As for advice... it's up to them to find their own path and to learn from others past mistakes and to make their own footprint on their franchise and the league." 

4. With the draft class being announced later this week, do you plan to target personalities, skill sets, or position groups at the college showcase?

"Honestly, I'm not entirely sure on which direction we plan to go in. We'll probably look into a little of each, but ultimately it's about finding the right pieces for this team to become better then we already are."   

5. What do you hope to gain most this week during the bye week, for yourself but also for your team?

"For the team, a little bit of rest to heal the lingering injuries and to get mentally prepared for the next slate of games. For me, it's a chance to scout talent for the amateur draft in the offseason. While it's important to keep the focus on this season, it's also important to keep a finger on the future. So I'm looking forward to our team getting some R&R and for the coaches and I to attend the college showcase and get a sneak peak on players we'd like to see in a Lumberjack helmet next season."

"I'd be lying to you if I said I didn't have my eye on it, Coach. I know it will be a fierce battle, but I'd love nothing more then to shove a victory right in Mr. Kiss' face. Moving on though, I've already emailed you and the coaches our agenda for the upcoming showcase. Hopefully we do our homework well here that will end up paying dividends come draft night."

No doubt.  Getting this extra chance to learn and scout is huge, I know the staff is loving it already.  Knowledge is power.  ...I just wonder how many of these silly GM's will share their info with other GM's thinking they're being all crafty..

"I never did understand that methodology... well, except in some fictional simulation league called the FBL. But that's besides the point. D.C. presents a tough matchup and it's a team that I built... so I know its good. I don't think Rizzo is going to beat us with his arm by himself, but Tank has improved from last season and presents a good 1-2 combo with Christopher Johnson. We know how good the line is anchored by Anthony Smith, who rarely let's anyone get around him. They have solid depth at receiver, but with the way our boys have been covering, I think we can contain them. I think for our defensive philosophy, we should probably focus on the run game and see if we can slow that down and put the game on Rizzo's shoulders. He has the talent to handle it, but maybe we can get them in tough throwing downs and get the ball back to our boys on the offensive side. Defensively, they pose a lot of dangers. Larry Stevens is a machine in the middle of that defense, so this is going to be a challenging test for Classic and Jr. to run against. And they are deep at cornerback, but they do have some holes in the safety positions that Pierce and Chriscoe might be able to take advantage of. I don't know if we should go away from what's been our bread and better all season... the run game... especially when they don't have a super dangerous defensive front. I say we maybe dial the run back just a hair and keep their defense on their toes a bit more instead of expecting the run. Do you have any thoughts on this at all Coach?"

I definitely think we rely on what has been so successful for us so far this year, but dialing it back a little bit to see if we can get into that secondary is fine with me.  I'm never afraid of challenging a defense..

"That's a good thing Coach. To beat a team with as much talent across the board as D.C., you can't be scared to challenge them. On both sides of the ball! I'll let you get with the team and begin prepping them for the big primetime game. I'm gonna take this bye week to check in with a few players, so if you have anything pressing, just let me know Coach."

"Starr, can you call in William Brewster for me."

"Hey Brew, it's the bye week and I haven't had a chance to chat yet since you returned from your injury. You look good back there... how you feeling back on the field?"

Well I came into the season really determined to improve on my completion percentage, and I think working with Coach Graham and Coach Perryman has really helped make that come into focus.  I know I've only got 4 games under my belt this year, but Coach Perryman told me I was completing 67.8% of my passes, which is way over my Season 5 career high of 62%.   So I'm feeling pretty good and comfortable.  Some QB's wouldn't like the style we play, but I'm not trying to show off my arm and throw for 4000 yards a year, I just want to win games however it happens.

“Sounds like the work you’ve put in is showing on the field. I absolutely love the style we play because it keeps the defense guessing. Not only do they have to account for our strong run game, but also you back there passing. It’s a huge part of our success so far. Well Brew, you enjoy the bye week and we’ll see you back next week ready to give D.C. an asswhooping.”

“Starr, can you call in Sam Rose please.”

“Hey Sam, just wanted to call you in here and check up on you and the defense during this bye week. Y’all have been playing lights out for us and it has not gone unnoticed. Especially in the secondary where you guys are flying all over the place making plays. As our defensive captain, how do you feel the defense is geling together?”

The defense is coming together pretty solid dude.  We been feeding off of each other nicely, and it's showing with that first place spot, now we all just want to lock it down!

"Love that attitude. Keep up the great work and I can't wait to see us lock down D.C. this week."

-----

"Starr, can you call up Coach Graham for me please."

-----

"Alright Coach, just wanted to touch base with you really quick before locking in. D.C. made a few moves and luckily for us, also got penalized by the league for something their new GM scoffed up. Plus for us! I always like it when we're about to play a team that makes a ton of moves to destroy cohesion and chemistry, plus I'm sure the morale in that locker room isn't the best right now. I think it's something we can definitely take advantage of. Do you see anything we need to tweak outside of what we discussed already given their moves, or are you content with the game plan set forth?"

SEATTLE LUMBERJACKS
PRESS CONFERENCE


WEEK 8



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

"What can I say? Wasn't that fun? The saying is that it always REIGNS in the Quist! This was vintage, smashmouth style football in the mud. There was issues all game from the special teams on our team and theirs, so it didn't surprise me that in the end, it came down to a special teams play to decide the game. This was an emotional game for me personally and I know the guys wanted to go out there and deliver me the victory and it means a whole of a lot to me to scribble the "W" on this game in the schedule. Strange isn't even the word to use to describe the odd feeling of coaching against the guys that have meant a lot to my professional career and  guys that I've grown close with through my tenure in D.C., now that we've done battle, I hope it's them and us in the Impact Bowl. How much fun would that be?

Getting back to the game... we played our asses off. We made big plays when we needed them the most and in the end, it was enough to walk out with the victory. Our run game was working like it has all season, but credit to D.C. for being the first team to really contain The Classic this season. But Kirby stepped up to the plate and delivered big run after big run. How about that Brewster to Pierce connection that resulted in the winning touchdown? Amazing! And the defense... the Sheed sack safety, Lightner all over the place, and Sanderson for forcing the fumble on the big hit. You want to see a team that wins together... look no further then this group right here. Can't say enough about the guys that strap up a Lumberjacks helmet. This has the makings to be a really special season due to their hard work and pure guts and heart.

As for the bad... we've gotten word that Rose is going to miss some time. He took a nasty shot to the head away from the play and looks like he might have broken his jaw. Obviously his loss is crushing to this defense, but I know Sam is going to lead even when he can't be on the field."


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

"I have touch up on this Sasser news that has been spreading like wildfire on Twitter and ESPN. This is a crock of shit, pardon my french. The kid plays his heart out for that city and for that team and has won countless of games for me in my four plus seasons while I was the General Manager of the Cobras. He deserves better than what he got post game from the media and fans. I don't care how good of a kicker you are... in those conditions... it's a crap shoot at best. So now he's accused as "gift wrapping" the game... Sasser is no cheater folks and I guarantee he wanted that win as bad anybody else, because he's as fierce of a competitor that I've seen in this sport.

It's tough not to comment on what has happened in Atlanta with former owner Maximum Crowe resigning. All season long it's seemed like him and GM Lucas were heading down a path that would ultimately lead to what occurred. I'm not sure why Mr. Crowe decided not to fire GM Lucas a long time ago or why he hired him in the first place. But I'm sure it's something he now regrets and it's a sad situation for the city of Atlanta. I'd like to see the new ownership stick it out in that football hungry city and maybe give GM Lucas a shot at running the team his way or if not, going another direction in that GM role."     


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

"Our coaching staff and scouting staff put a lot of time and effort in trying to get the most information that we could from the showcase. I think it's an amazing addition that was created by Commissioner Wilkinson and I hope it sticks around for the foreseeable future. We're looking forward to building on the work we did here at the combine." 

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

"For some of the GM's that made the errors, it wasn't that big of a surprise... but a few others I was definitely shocked by. This just goes to show you how tough this job is and how careful we need to be whenever we move pieces, no just in the offseason, but in the middle of the season as well. Mistakes are meant to be learned from, so I hope that's the case here."     

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

"That's a good question... I'm not entirely sure. I think we'll probably stay as is, but it's something the coaches and I will discuss as we plan for the week ahead."

6. Talk about your game this upcoming week.

"We get to stay home and host the Long Beach Mermen. They are coming off a tough loss against the Kings, but we can't get complacent here. We have a good opportunity to head into the halfway point at 6-2 and atop of the division. The key will be to slow down their run game enough with Belanger, to force them to go into the air where our defense has been forcing turnovers. They have a tough defense, but I know Classic and Kirby are up for the challenge and Brew will be waiting to expose their secondary if they cheat the run. Should be a fun game... and Go Jacks!"

"It feels good doesn't it Coach!? We have Long Beach coming into town next and I can't help but think this is a great opportunity to head into the halfway point with not only six wins, but that sweet slice of first place, like you said. Long Beach has a stout defense though, so this is by no means a cake walk, but if we continue playing like we have been... I see no reason why we shouldn't win this game at home. It'll come down to shutting down their run game and making Wright throw the ball to our opportunistic secondary, even though the loss of Rose hurts. I'll talk to Coach Collier on what we can do to fill his position, but we also need to figure out why we are struggling with our run defense, despite focusing on stopping it. In fact, let's also bring in all the coaches for this meeting. Let's see if we can't iron this gameplan out.

*WAITS FOR THE REST OF THE COACHING STAFF TO ARRIVE*

"Thanks for coming up to the office gentlemen. First off... great win out there this past week. We really brought it against D.C. despite not playing our best due to the conditions. I was just speaking to Coach Graham about our inability in stopping the opposing run game despite our gameplan focusing on stopping it. Is it a personal issue? Do we need to mix things up? If anyone has any ideas, the floor is yours."

We've received very little production from our defensive tackles, and while that usually means the linebackers are doing more while the DT's eat space, we aren't seeing high tackling numbers from our linebackers either, so I'd say it was an overall front-seven personnel issue.

"Understood, and while I'd love to be able to go out and fix that issue. You know the situation our previous GM, may he rest in peace, put us in with some of the contracts dished out. I'm potentially turning the wheels on some trade talks, but I'm not going to overpay because we're not really in a position to do that at this time.

Let's turn our attention to the loss of Rose over the next few weeks. I have three/four players in mind that could fill the role for the time being. The obvious choice is Devon Kruse, who has been backing up Rose. Our other two options would be Eric Scott or James Milton/Billy Faison. Who do you feel works best while Rose is nursing the broken jaw injury to slot into the starting free safety spot?"

Our strong safeties lack the reps to do much reliably at Free, so I think we have to roll with Kruse.

"Alright Coach, that sounds good. Kruse it is. Last thing is for our game against Long Beach. Do we stick with our 60/40 run to pass ratio or do we go back to our bread and butter at 65/35. I know Long Beach has a good defense, but wanted to get your thoughts on it before making any changes."

"Perfect, we share the same thoughts. Alright, that's all I have for this week, just going to take care of a few things and then lock us in for Long Beach. Thanks coaches."

-----

"Starr, can you get a letter sent out to Sam Rose that we wish him well in his jaw surgery and for a speedy recovery and that he will be missed on the field over the next few weeks. And can you please send in McKenzie Lightner for me."

-----

"Hey McKenzie, just wanted to talk with you and let you know how impressed I've been with your play this season. You've really stepped up and taken a leap with your production as you and the rest of the secondary have really made it tough on opposing quarterbacks this year and is a huge reason for the success we've had to this point. I really just wanted to applaud your hard work over the offseason and taking it to another level this season. It has not gone unnoticed."

My coaches in Chapel Hill always told me to get better every year, and that's the plan man. This is just year 2, I want to be in this league ballin' out til I'm 30 or 32, you know? so I gotta keep them skills checked off and ready to rumble with anybody out there.  That's the focus, big plays, big money, big rings!

SEATTLE LUMBERJACKS
PRESS CONFERENCE


WEEK 9


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

"This was a grind 'em out game and our players rose to the occasion in the big moments. Long Beach game in here determined and gave us one heck of a battle, but there isn't a team I trust more in the fourth quarter then this team right here. The big pass and catch from Brew to Pierce for the game winner and the defense just continually making big play after big play. Lightner with another HUGE game and honestly... I felt he was snubbed for the Defensive Player of the Week award. While we won the game though, we need to play more sound if we're going to be able to keep this winning streak going. We had some dumb penalties that cost us during the game, including a touchdown I think. But overall, can't nitpick too much when you're on a four game winning streak."

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

"We've had a great first half of the season. Sitting at 6-2, atop of the standings... it's a testament to the hard work this team put in during the offseason. We felt like nobody was taking this team serious and we came into this season with a chip on our shoulder and something to prove. It's been fun as hell watching it. McKenzie Lightner is the player that has stood out to me in a good way. Now in his sophomore season, he built on his rookie season and has took his game to the next level. A huge reason we've been this successful. I wouldn't say this next player has stood out in a bad way... but I think we'd like to see him show why we brought him here in the offseason. That guy is Hugh Ulrich. We know the type of talent he possesses and it can be a difficult transition moving cities and teams and coaching staffs. But if we're going to be a serious playoff contender, we're going to need Hugh at his best and I know he can get there."     

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?

"I think Mr. Reigns is grinning ear to ear right now. We've either met all the current expectations or am currently meeting them. We've exceeded last season't record, we're currently averaging just over 26 points per game, we beat Portland at home, and we beat Rapid City and Lincoln to boot. I would like to do more with getting the re-branding of the Lumberjack name out there, but winning football games has a tendency to do that for us. I'm not worried about job security... I'm worried about making this team a top contender for the foreseeable future."

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

"Right now for me, it's Merv Patton. This guy gets labeled as a game manager by the media, but all this guy does is put up eye popping numbers. He's led Orlando to 6-2 at the break and it's about time he gets some MVP recognition. As for an under performer, I'd say it's GM Dazz. He leaves Cleveland to join a better team that I created and broke up the coaching staff, acquired league sanctioned fines, and hasn't truly capitalized playing in a weak division. The only thing is though, I guess I'm not surprised by the under performance though." 

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

"Has to be St. Louis. A Coach Tarr led team with the defense that they've built over there is creating all kinds of havoc for the rest of the teams in this league, let alone our division. We're looking forward to facing that type of challenge twice a season though." 

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?

"I think it's easy for some to think we should be buyers in our position. First place and attempting to maintain that position despite the big guns in our division breathing down our necks. While I won't say we won't listen to offers, I will say that I'm really happy with what we've got." 

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?

"I think it's the right progression for the league. If teams want to go "all in" then there is a price that has to be paid for taking that type of risk and advantage over teams that remain within the salary cap."   

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

"We travel to Oklahoma to face the Tulsa Celtics. I know they've been stumbling a bit this season, but you always have to be prepared on the road and facing a running back like Christopher Allen. On paper, it's probably a game we should win, but there is no easy games in the HIFL. Just like Long Beach played us tough, I know Tulsa will be eager to try and knock us from the top. We're looking forward to this one... and Go Jacks!"

“LETS GO!!!!!!!”

———

“Starr, can you call in Coach Graham please”

———

“Hey Coach, another important victory! Who would’ve thought we’d be sitting where we are at the halfway point. Just want to thank you and the rest of the coaching staff for a fantastic job thus far. We’ve got teams breathing down our neck though, so we have to continue this impressive run. Tulsa is a tough team, but if we can hold Allen in check, it gives us a great shot at leaving there with the W. Don’t think we change anything up offensively unless you see fit.”

SEATTLE LUMBERJACKS
PRESS CONFERENCE


WEEK 10


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

"Inches away from sending this game to a potential overtime. We played hard and for the most part I feel we vastly outplayed Tulsa, but it was them making the big plays when they needed them. We also could not consistently stop their run game. I have to applaud Tulsa for the game they played, I know it's been a down season so far, but they kicked our butts out there today. A much better team than there record might indicate. As for us, man this team didn't give up. Many times throughout this game where we could have just given up, but we didn't, we dug deep and gave it all we had until the end of the game. Can never be mad when we leave it all on the field, that's for sure."

2. With the All-Star Rosters being announced this week, what is your take on the composition, any snubs or surprises from your own team? 

"I'm sure there are some GM's who felt there team had a lot of snubs and I get it. When you have a talented pool of players to make up an all-star team, it's impossible not to snub players when I have roster restrictions. That said, I do want to take this time to announce the two players that will be replacing The Classic and Sam Rose in he All-Star game. Oakland's Clifford Barbour and Roy Roberts! Congratulations to them on this well deserving invitation. As for GM Kirk and the Eastern Conference... he definitely made a few eyebrow raising decisions, but all in all, he's created a team that has amazing talent up and down the line-up. It's going to be a fun weekend and should be a very entertaining and competitive game in which I have no doubts the Western side will come out on top!"

3. What news stories stood out to you this week?

"I want to quickly address the Chriscoe situation. The end of that game brought out a lot of emotions in a game we lost on a close play at the end to potentially extend the game. I admire the heart and passion that Chriscoe has for this game and for his teammates and sometimes things like that happen in the heat of the moment. Outside of that, it seems all eyes are on Alabama and GM Pancho's future. It's been a disappointing season for the Hawks, but no doubt about it, GM Pancho is the right guy to be the GM there. One bad season shouldn't take away from all the talent he has assembled and wins he has had."   

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

"We travel to Michigan to face the Monsters. Another team that hasn't found the success they did last year, but are no doubt a talented football squad. Hill to Soriano is just about as good a QB-to-WR combo there is in the HIFL. But I know our defense is chomping at the bit to erase this last loss from our memory bank. We'll need to really run the ball well and  let Brew continue picking apart opposing secondaries. Let's go Jacks!"

"While it wasn't an easy decision, because Coach Graham deserves to be the Head Coach of the All-Star game, I decided to reward the team with the best record in the HIFL at the halfway point and that was Coach Saint and the Las Vegas Scorpions. I haven't personally talked to Coach yet about it, so that's about all I can comment on this situation."

"Hey Coach Herb, I take it Coach Graham is a bit pissed at me. I'll let him have some time to let things simmer. Well, that sure was a tough loss to swallow. But I can't fault the way we played til the very end of the game. We have another stern road test this week in the likes of Michigan. This is a team we can definitely beat, but we'll have to play much better than we did this past week against Tulsa. Before I get too much into game planing, how's the mood in the locker room following the tough loss and post All-Star game selections?"

The boys are fine, we can't win them all, but this one did sting for a bit.  Dorian felt like he was interfered with before he made the catch on the final play, and wanted a flag to give us another shot at the end zone, and the team really rallied behind him.  Obviously, the negativity from some other GM's about our guys not deserving their all-star nominations has a mixed result, but overall we're looking at the next game, even if Coach Graham is pretty unhappy.

"The flag should have for sure been thrown, but it's a game and sometimes things like that don't go our way. With our inability to really slow down the run, I'm not sure what we can really change that we haven't already tried. Michigan strikes me more of a passing team than running team, but looking at their past games, the score of the game really dictates how they run their offense. They seem to be more pass heavy early, but if they build a lead, they start running the ball more and more. Even more of an emphasis that we need to strike early against them. Offensively, we stick with the same bread and butter. Anything else to discuss Coach... otherwise would you mind sending Dorian Chriscoe in to see me on your way out?"

"Hey Dorian, just wanted to let you know we appreciated you sticking up for the team like that after no flag was thrown. Like I told the coaches, sometimes we get the calls, sometimes we don't. We have your back though, and I bet ya'll are eager to get after it against Michigan to get that taste out of our mouths, eh?"

SEATTLE LUMBERJACKS
PRESS CONFERENCE


WEEK 11

"Before I get to ya'll's questions this week. I'd like to have the floor for just a brief moment. It's come to my attention that a few people were either unhappy with my answers during my last press conference or with my all-star selection process. As for GM Dazz, you can compare what you've done there in D.C. to what I did in D.C. all you want. I think you know who'd win that comparison. Facts are facts. You've crippled your team there by decisions you've made. If you don't feel you were an under performer... then I really feel bad for the fans of the Cobras. Keep up the good work pal! To those over critical about how many Lumberjacks made it in compared to your team. I rewarded the teams that were sitting at the top of the league at the halfway point. That included Las Vegas, San Antonio, St. Louis and my Seattle team. I stand by each and every selection. There will always be talent left out of a selection process, there's just no way around that. If you want a shot at picking the team and adding more of your players... then I'll quote a GM that recently said... get 60 wins and then come speak to me. Okay, I'll take a few questions now."   

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

"Tough competitive game. Let me first say it was great to see Mike Powers back and it looked like his team responded to his return in a big way. What can I say in this game, I thought we played terrific. We out gained them through the air and on the ground. Controlled time of possession. It just seemed like when we got close to scoring, it was either a sack or a penalty that took the momentum out of the drive. And in the end, Michigan was able to capitalize on their drives a bit more than us. We'll look to regroup and end this losing streak back at home next week."

2. Talk about any news your team is involved in this week, as well as what other news stories stood out to you this week?

"I thought it was a class act with Coach Bryce handing the teamball to GM Powers. That was a nice moment. In other news, I just want to congratulate Curt Robles on his historic game. That was a mighty impressive feat against the two time champs and just goes to show that while the results haven't always been great, the Bama players play for GM Pancho." 

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

"We head back home to host the red hot Miami Killer Whales. I know Ralph McClure was very vocal after there victory against Long Beach. Well I can tell you right now, we respect that team. Tough defense, strong running attack. This is going to be a challenge that we welcome and hope we can put an end to Miami's seven game winning streak. We're gonna need to be at our best in all three phases in this game, because Miami is a team that can run away from you if you're not. We'll need to find a way to slow down their rushing attack, which is best in the league and make Duke beat us with his arm against our talented secondary. And we'll need to try and find some success against that shutdown defense. They are really good against the run and the pass, so the hope is that we can be successful in one area which will open up the other area. No doubt this is going to be a tough test. But I know this team is ready to get back on the winning side of things. Bring on the Whales! Go Jacks!"

Whew... had enough of the critics huh? ...I don't blame you, I've been there myself when I was QB'ing over in Missouri.   ..We're in for some interesting match ups vs. Miami, their defense is tough especially against the run, and they can run it on anyone offensively.  Going to be a hard one, especially on our little losing streak.

"I still see Coach Graham isn't ready to talk things over yet and I guess I don't really blame him. But yes, Miami is definitely going to be a tall task for us. If we can win those battles in the trenches, we should have a shot. Prior to the game this week, I will be deploring some PR activities for the fans as well as some team building things as well. Since we have a bye week due to All-Star festivities, I will be sending you and the rest of the coaching staff on a little appreciation night. You all have worked hard this season getting this team into a position of thinking playoffs and that is just remarkable. So you all deserve some pampering during the break. How does that sound?"

I think coach was ready, but when you doubled down on every decision you made for the all-star team it kinda re-ignited that flame, I think?  As far as your plans, that sounds great.  I look forward to it.

"Understood, definitely didn't use the right vocab as I just meant players. Hope that's not what's bogging the team down. Alright Coach, I'll let you and the rest of the coaches prep the team for the week. I'll have the lock-in sheet sent down shortly."

"Alright Starr, just looking for some general pricing for the thoughts I have. As for pre-game festivities before the Miami game...

I want to schedule the STIHL TimberSports to do a competition before the game in the arena. Every fan with a ticket can watch the event for free. We'll say three hours before the scheduled game, to allow for clean-up and field transformation.

I want to implement a team mascot, not sure any HIFL team has an official one yet. It's nothing outrageously crazy, but it'll do the trick I think. We'll name him Timber Jack and he will be a friendly cartoony Lumberjack mascot who carries around a giant inflatable axe. He'll be heavily involved in all our game festivities as well as setting up a kids club called JuniorJacks, where we'll have a fun area outside the arena before the game that the young Seattle Lumberjack fans can have a fun experience at.

And lastly, I want to let the Coaches have a night out in Seattle on one night of their choosing during the bye week. We're talking stretch limo, VIP passes to the Seattle Aquarium, Woodland Park Zoo, and the Museum of Pop Culture, catching the fish at Pike's Market, and finishing it all off with dinner on top of the Space Needle.

Could you calculate up how much that will take out of our PR funds please?"

  It looks like we're looking at around 750K-1MM depending on if we want to promote the festivities and all ahead of time.
