Things Must Come to an End... Should It
QumarChicago - Chicago
Dick Butkus was announced as head coach
of the enforcers in June, everyone in the
city of Chicago was ecstatic. Everyone from
former Enforcers GM Ken Valdiserri, to Vince
McMahon, to the media in Chicago, and most
importantly future and current Enforcers
fans. Butkus said that he wanted to coach.
Vince and Ken gave him that opportunity
to "fulfill" the rest of his extraordinary
career by coaching.
recently, Butkus felt that the job of coaching
was too hard. To quote Tom Hanks from A
League Of Their Own, "It's supposed
to be hard. If it wasn't hard, then everyone
would do it. The hard is what makes it great."
is what I am telling Dick Butkus. Coaching
is supposed to be hard. If it wasn't hard
everyone could coach a team with a lot of
ease. He "chickened" his way out
of what was supposed to be his curtain call,
his helmet raise. Dick Butkus chickened
out on the greatest opportunity he ever
had. It was his time to prove people wrong;
that he could coach a football team that
could clobber the opponents and win.
what is his new position now? XFL Director
of Football Competition?! My god! Maybe
he has gone senile? Why take a position
like that? All I gotta say is that he may
have made the biggest mistake of his life,
and the Chicago fans are all suffering because
Butkus has brought most of the fan interest
to the Enforcers. If it wasn't for him,
I don't think the city of Chicago would
give a damn about the Enforcers. Butkus
was, as I said before, the zest, the stronghold,
the centerpiece of the Enforcers. And now
losing the centerpiece, makes it harder
for all Chicagoans, including me, to swallow.
