anyone who has watched sports for any length of time will clearly recognize what is happening here. These players have lost faith in the "system." They no longer believe that they can win with it. That belief was exacerbated by those earlier 1 goal losses. Losing now seems inevitable to this team.
I know that no one here wants to listen to this but elevating the "system" above "winning by whatever means necessary" causes a severe morale problem when that new "system" does not quickly result in the promised results or at least improvement. They expected opponents to be gasping for breath at the end of games but it is clear that the "system" does not produce that result. The idea that turnovers are not important is ludicrous. Name another sport where turnovers are tolerated like they are in this "system." [Post edited by vonmisian at 04/15/2017 3:36PM]
