While I am very disappointed that Brad Green will not captain the ‘Mighty Demons’ (Melbourne AFL team) I am delighted that despite his personal disapointment he has a positive attitude to his role as a team player:
1. He will use the experience and skills he has to support the leadership.
Green said everyone at Melbourne would need to shoulder some of the leadership burden to help Jack Trengove and Jack Grimes deal with the co-captaincy role.
“It’s going to be challenging for them. … so that is where this whole football club has to embrace everyone becoming a leader and embracing these guys, because they are going to need it,” Green said.
2. In whatever role we are placed we are to contribute positively to the team and its goals.
”I want to get out there and perform for these boys and help them win games and get back to playing finals.”
Great stuff from a true team player and leader.
