    Hey guys,

    Little help. What were the 4 things that Belichick preached on A Football Life that were on the door when players walked out?

    I'm trying to motivate my rec basketball team, as over the last few yrs we always destroy the mediocre teams, but can't seem to be mentally tough enough to beat the other good teams. We always find weird ways to lose, kinda like the chargers. And, being the captain I'm starting to think there has to be a way I can change our mentality. So, was gonna email them the four points that were on that door.

    When you leave here...

    -Don't believe or fuel the hype
    -Manage Expectations
    -Ignore the noise
    -Speak for yourself

    It looked like on the other side of the door there was a "when you enter here" sign, does anyone know what that one says?

    Probably something like:

    1) Be Professional
    2) Give it everything you have
    3) Have Fun..

    Or go with the four things on the door in Cleveland when Eric Mangini was head coach:

    When You Leave Here:
    1. Stab someone in the back
    2. Find someone to blame for your shortcomings
    3. Rat out someone who helped you along the way
    4. Get a job on TV and grovel for forgiveness

    Or Rex Ryan's sign in the Jets locker room:

    1) Eat plenty of snacks after meetings & frequent all fast food joints in East Rutherford

    2) Talk down about the team you are about to play and say you are better than they are

    3) Expect A Super Bowl Win this year...and next year and next year and....

    4) Make sure you walk barefoot around the locker room so I can take pictures for my bizarre fetish of feet

    These are grown men, right? I'd skip the four things on the Patriots door thing. Life likely has prevented all involved from being in the football psychotic mindframe conducive to brainwashing. If it were on me, and I were the Captain, I would make practices brutal. That's the best way to get mental toughness. As a captain it's your job to set the tone for mental toughness through conditioning and practice effort. Run yourself and your guys into the ground. Only way to do it, and it will work.

    Use your own motivation to influence your team. Why be unoriginal? Or promise a stripper bus party for every good win. If that don't do the trick...then consider replacing your current team with men.

    I recall hearing or reading that the sign entering the facility said something to the effect that you check your ego at the door...

    1. Don't bother with that first round pick; trade down for two thirds and three fourths because that strategy is uber effective

    2. Forget about signing free agents going into their second contracts

    3. Choke in the playoffs at home to lesser teams

    4. Surround one of the top three or four quarterbacks OF ALL TIME with a piss poor defense

    Gee, FCB02062, why don't you then root for a franchise that consistently wins Super Bowls:

    Like the .......ummm.....and the ahhhhh...... hmmmm.... then there's always the ........???????

    Maybe, you just are not based in reality?

    If you're going to defend those four points you made, then it's not called "sarcasm".

    Even a third grade child knows that.

    You have a history of constant franchise bashing.

    If Mrs. Kraft hadn't died, you'd be right now continuing your tirade about how "cheap" the Krafts are. Strange how you changed your behavior on the ownership so suddenly. People here can see your posting history anytime.

    And THAT last statement by me was just as "sarcastic" as your post.
