A talent for not moving from their spot. Combined with a belief that running is what other people contribute.

They believe that...

Groundballs are something other people do.... :roll:

Wearing two sets of shoulder pads and goggles under your helmet makes you play better. :shock:

If you lose 6-5 it's the defences fault! :evil:

Constant insistence that the D-pole(s) marking them are amazing as they keep "miraculously" stripping them of the ball/stick.

Irrespective of the fact that it's because they themselves are constantly trying to dodge all 3 or 4 of said *amazing* poles at once, and regardless of the fact that said D-pole has actually only been playing for 2 weeks.

Causes untold turnovers due to bad passes, being checked or taking bad shots to the the goalies body.

But because he was on the end of a garbage goal and 2 fast breaks thinks their the nutts for having a 3 goal game. And then asking where the middies contribution was as their gasping for air after a load of D and transition play due to his untold turnovers.


... Oh that one was almost theraputic ...
