You need to go where you gotta go , to see what you gotta see. It has been our motto for ages, and we might have it printed on t-shirts if we ever decide to take that turn.

No call/ foul ?? What will you do?

Sometimes there’s a very thin line between a no call and a defensive foul. Our coaches always say: if you can’t explain it, don’t call it.
