However, in recent years, I've started to tighten up as I know what I like and don't like. I had an interesting situation tonight where two players were getting into it. Our team was down 22-13 as well and there was some heated discussions. I even got into it a bit with a few people because there was just a lot going on.
Ultimately, I made a choice to sit a couple of players down to let them cool down. We fell behind 29-13 but somehow came back to win 54-52. Did my choice to bench people have something to do with it? I don't know but it was a sacrifice I made. If we lost the game then so be it.
Sometimes I don't think people realize that coaching a team is basically like being a manager at a job. Basically you have to coach people to play a game and work with their "personalities". I didn't do the best job today but I learned a lesson in how to manage situations for the future.
