I put this in a comment on the article but I'll put it here too, so nobody misunderstand what I'm trying to say.
Believe me, I am absolutely the last guy to ever say anyone should be happy with losing. They shouldn’t. They better not be, or they belong in another line of work and the fans that think that should find another sport to follow, or quit following sports altogether. That’s not at all the argument I’m trying to make. It’s like I said, if you’re gonna puff your chest out when you win, if that’s the image you’re gonna try to create, then you can’t look like it’s the end of the world every time something goes wrong if you want to be taken seriously.
