I don't care that people thought I was one way for my whole career because now that I am not attached to a team, I can have my own opinion, I can have my own voice. I can link myself to my own thought process rather than a generic message most teams try to get across.
There is still a big onus to be coached. I understand the best teams don't need a huge amount of coaching, but that's when a coach should decide not to do coaching.
At the moment there are some England players who are the stars of their club teams, but not for their country. It's difficult to explain.
Our moral sense really evolved to bind groups together into teams that can cooperate in order to compete with other teams.
That's one of the great oddities of baseball: Success is relative. A hitter who fails 70 percent of the time at the plate is a potential member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and many World Championship teams lose more than 70 games during their title-winning seasons.
It's no surprise that optimistic athletes, managers and teams do better. What's interesting is where they do better. It's in coming back from defeat and acting in the clutch.
You want to play in the best stadiums against the best players - your Real Madrid's and Barcelona's - you want to play those teams.
Films are not mathematics - that's the first thing you need to understand. At least, that's how I feel. They are not words on paper. Films are made with people, with teams and with individual bundles of creativity coming together to fulfill the vision of an individual who is the director of the film.
Instead of being on teams at school, I was preparing for auditions.
Morality binds and blinds. It binds us into teams... but thereby makes us go blind to objective reality.
There was a time when rival teams used a shift against me. They would put the second baseman on the shortstop's side of the bag, move the shortstop into the hole to his right, and have the third baseman hug the foul line. The idea was to build an infield wall against a known right-handed pull hitter.
But I'm not going to walk Barry Bonds, like some teams do, in the first inning with nobody on.
Broadway shows in New York draw two times the attendance of all New York sports teams put together.
I had the opportunity to go with some other teams. But I didn't consider those teams to be contenders, and I was right.
I think the extreme complexity of medicine has become more than an individual clinician can handle. But not more than teams of clinicians can handle.
There is a way to practice hard and be physical without pads. You can still be a physical football team and be efficient in practice without pads. The 49ers practiced like that for a long period of time in the 1980s under Bill Walsh and were extremely successful when all the other teams were practicing in pads.
The thing with NBA teams, a lot of times they just want to get you back on the floor to play, so as a player you've got to be very, very smart.
I think we are going to see exciting cricket all the way. We are watching the two best teams in the world-and I think England will eventually go on to pip Australia by a single Test.
Ultimately, the best driver will always do something special, whatever the rules and whatever the regulations. Same thing with the teams.
Remember: there are no MVPs on a losing team. You will always be a part of some team. Families are teams. Companies are teams. Life is a team sport. You can be a standout athlete, but if you aren't playing as part of a team, then you're not going to be as great as you could be. A player that makes a team great is better than a great player.
Brad D. Smith
Basketball's eras are defined by teams - Celtics, Lakers, Bulls - and baseball's epochs are defined by players - Ruth, Robinson, Mantle - but with football, it's the sideline strategists, the nutty professors and top coated Lears.
J. R. Moehringer
You learn from playing against the best players and the best teams, and we're going to keep fighting and figuring out ways to beat them.
The Florida State League was considered the top A-league back then. You played in the spring training parks of major league teams, traveled throughout some great cities in Florida, and the pay was the best in A-ball.
Capitalism historically has been a very dynamic force, and behind that force is technical progress, innovation, new ideas, new products, new technologies, and new methods of managing teams.
I like the days when all the filmmakers had was a film roll, a camera and a gangster. The Mack Sennett comedies were all like that. They'd create little teams to go out and shoot films.
Martin Luther King, Jr.
