I think we are in a position where the added exposure is what we need, especially to get the respect we deserve, and keep the media off our back so much (which has to negatively impact the team). Don't let the media keep writing a negative spin on us, and give them a more positive storyline. Let them see how hard we work, and who we are, and the "they only win in the regular season, and aren't contenders" talk will be harder to push.
if the team is that mentally fragile they don't stand a chance anyways. IDK, maybe its just me, I don't really give two shits about the "lack of respect" by the media, and I don't think that the guys are sweating it much either.
