I am not alone in my manager struggles and I have never been. There are at least 15 other people dealing with the “Where’s my ride?” “Why wasn’t I rostered?” “Who is housing me?” “Why aren’t I getting playing time?” and “When is practice again?” shenanigans across the country every summer. These are just a few of them.
I’m not doing this anymore. but be kind to them. Be good to them. Make my successor’s life a little easier. Managers do all the work off the pitch so you can make us proud on the pitch.
