It’s never been about being the best,
looking your best,
coming across as a titan,
capable of taking on all men,
all the hype,
never been about that.
You can strip it all away,
and what have you got,
what you show on the field,
not your clothes, stance or talk.
Hard work, belief and mental strength,
to play for something that matters,
not play for your own glory,
people remember the man who gave,
not the one who took away.
So we compare and contrast,
take Rio for example,
somehow propelled as a rock,
making himself like he’s the team,
derided now for greed.
our second longest serving player,
yes believe it if you will,
for his will is to survive,
he’s a fighter,
not the most graceful or elegant,
but he has heart,
he has our soul,
you could see it,
thumping his chest on that bus.
Or take the savvy of our Jamie,
all he wants to do is play for his club,
contracts may matter,
but that’s a matter of course,
somethings just matter more.
If you’re red,
you’re red through and through,
not like Rio,
probably in all likelihood,
turn up blue.
he’s probably better off moving on,
he’ld make a terrible defensive linebacker!
