12 Feb Almost 9 Days
If you have had 20 possessions in an 80 minute game you have probably had the ball for a maximum of 90 seconds.
If you have played 20 games a year for the last 8 years (160 games), at most you have had the ball in your hands for 240 minutes (4 hours).
That means for 209 hours (almost 9 days) you haven’t had the ball. If I instructed you to go and stand on an oval for 9 days and do nothing, I presume you would think I was mad.
Approximately 98% of game you love, is spent not having the thing that everybody so desperately wants, the attraction is addictive.
THE QUESTION IS….
Is the work you do off the ball important?
