Breaking the Bricks!

Yes, without a doubt it was a painful defeat for team Trailblazers last Saturday. Going up against a team like 300 was a real task. But we all know that turning our backs and walking away is not an option. To blaze the trail with our presence, we must first learn to walk through the fiery fire of defeat as a team. No one said victory would come easy.

Looking at the scoreboard, we all know that it is a big margin to erase from our memory. Painful would be an understatement. But team, never ever let the visual scoreline define who you are. Our identity lies in who we are as a team and not by how many defeats or wins we have. Numbers are merely a reflection and a gauge of our performance, not our identity.

On a positive note, it was good to see that the aggressiveness from Trailblazers are gradually improving. Most are beginning to kill the fear of using their body in the game albeit there's still much work to be done. There will be a lot of work to improve awareness and positioning of players as well. Don't be discouraged, team! Keep smiling because training from henceforth will be a whole lot 'meaner', like the 'mean machine'! :P

Trailblazers, know that great teams don't emerge as champions on their first outing in a major competition. The first outing is more of a test of character for the team than winning a medal back home. Great teams stay persistent all the way even in times of deafening defeats.

Great teams are dictators.
They dictate their progress even in times of regress.

So, don't let the bricks of defeats stop you from moving forward.
Break em' bricks and continuing moving forward!

RAAAWWWRRRR!
Breaking the bricks of defeat!

Go Trailblazers!
