The Democrats Are Who We Thought They Were

If you want to crown them, crown them. But the [Democrats] are who we though they were. We [shouldn't]let them off the hook.

This is now dated, but I've been looking for it for two days.

Uncommon: It's pretty rare for a coach to basically say "The other team was a bunch of chumps." Usually they'll blame themselves for the loss, which is, yeah, just another way of saying "We're better than they are, they're not all that good, we just screwed up."

Still, you don't hear many coaches stating, more or less, that their opponents were overrated and a paper tiger.


Tangentially Related: Everyone seems to be coming up with excuses to cover this:

I don't know. For all the condemnation of the players, when something gets out of control like this, it's hard to blame any individual player for joining the brawl, isn't it? In a small brawl, it's more expected that players will intervene to separate the hot heads -- but what about when it becomes a full-on melee? How do you attempt to restrain a teammate when everyone's taking swings at everyone else?

The guy who swung is helmet got suspended. But that seems just a convenient reason to hang him -- and avoid suspending players who acted worse.

What about all those guys stomping on and kicking a downed opponent? Even in a street brawl, that's pretty thuggish, isn't it? Can't claim self-defense there, or sticking up for a teammate. There, you're just beating on a defenseless guy.
