Matt Driscoll Quotes:

“You got to have a staff that’s on the same page. . you’ve got to have a staff that’s solidified and that’s not afraid to have a suggestion, that’s not afraid to say, ‘Change this.’”

“You have to know who you can coach. Too many times people like to go with a quick fix.”

“One of the biggest things on sustaining success is making sure that the talent you’re bringing in is continually improving, and fits in with what you do, and you can piece those parts together.”

“We tell our guys this all the time, ‘If you don’t want to know the truth, then don’t ask the question.’ But if you want to know . . then you’ve got to accept [the answer].”

“It really helps sustaining our success . . making sure that the culture is consistent.”

“I think it’s almost more important to educate the guys being criticized than it is the guys [about] how do you criticize. So many people take it so personal.”

“We have expectations and we have certain standards and we have things we want done a certain way.”

“The game doesn’t stop. Do the next right thing.”

“When we got here UNF stood for in the community . . ‘U Never Finish’ And when I first got the job it really, really, really bothered me . . We changed that to ‘Urgency Never Fails.’ It goes along with being passionate.”

“There are 5 pillars that separate ‘good’ from ‘great.’ Trust is, by far, the number one . . people skills are number two . . courage is number three . . the last two would be vision . . and passion.”

“If we can take, and cultivate and . . really help guys understand their strengths, their weaknesses, their talents, their treasures . .and make them become better men . . then we know the by-product is they’re going to be great basketball players.”

  1. popularna odmiana pokera (Classic Texas Hold’em) dla każdego, Kto nigdy nie grał w pokera, powinien przynajmniej raz spróbować. To gra karciana, która zawładnęła milionami graczy na całym świecie. Niektórzy spośród nich są stałymi bywalcami kasyn, inni grają całkiem towarzysko, ze znajomymi, a jeszcze inni oddają się tej formie rozrywki… przed komputerem, nie wychodząc z domu. Nic w tym dziwnego, skoro mają możliwość zagrania zupełnie za darmo na przykład w Mafia Poker. Piątek, 10 listopada 2017 r Piątek, 10 listopada 2017 r Mafia Poker daje nam możliwość zagrania w jedną z najpopularniejszych odmian pokera, a mianowicie Classic Texas Hold’em. W tej wersji gracze mają na ręce tylko dwie karty, a pięć wykłada się na środku stołu. Każdy z uczestników może podbijać stawkę, sprawdzić lub powiedzieć “pas”. Gdy dochodzi już do sprawdzenia kart, kombinacje stanowią połączenie kart z ręki oraz tych ze środka stołu. A zatem, jeśli mamy na przykład dwa asy, a wśród kart wspólnych znajdują się kolejne dwa, wówczas możemy krzyknąć: “kareta asów!”. https://nmpeoplesrepublick.com/community/profile/johnsonsinger7/ Musimy jednak pamiętać o tym, że nie od razu Rzym zbudowano. Oznacza to, że nie jesteśmy w stanie wygrywać od samego początku. Nikt nie był od razu najlepszy. W STS Betgames poker wymaga od nas rozsądku i zdecydowania, dlatego też musimy pamiętać o tym, by na początku nie szarżować i dobrze poznać grę, a dopiero później zająć się obstawianiem za wysokie kwoty. Jeśli chodzi o limity wygranych, nie musimy się o nic bać. Możemy wygrać naprawdę spore pieniądze. Podobnie jak w przypadku zwykłych zakładów bukmacherskich, w przypadku których niektórzy zgarniają nawet setki tysięcy złotych w paru kuponach. CrossFire is a MMOFPS game including some typical features for this kind of game like a rank and funds system. The game offers four modes of great playability: Team Deathmatch, Search & Destroy, Elimination and Ghost Mode, each of them using their own, unique maps.Besides experience points, for each match we’re also receivin…
