Is O'Driscoll Saying Sorry?

Is O'Driscoll Saying Sorry?

Sean O'Driscoll explains his post-match comments regarding the Doncaster Rovers in more depth.

BR>
Speaking at todays press conference, the Rovers manager said:

'Ever since I've been here the supporters have been fantastic. We've had games where we have been 2 goals behind and the fans have got behind the team and the players have responded and got a result, but their passion can have the adverse result as well. Everyone was disappointed with Saturday - the people that support the team have a massive effect on the players and when you see it have an adverse effect on the players it's just frustrating. Sometimes you say things in the heat of the moment but the fans have been fantastic and we all want the same things - to be successful and to win games.'

'I've said to the players that the higher the expectations, the bigger the disappointment and if you don't have high expectations then you don't have disappointments. We all get frustrated and we all want to win every game and that's a good thing. We've had fantastic atmosphere's at the Keepmoat and when the place is jumping it makes the hairs on the back of your neck stand up. Everybody was down after the game but we were in on Sunday morning and we've got it out of our system and we look forward to the next game.'

It's an explaination, not an apology. If he was saying sorry we'd see the letters s, o, r, r and y in close succession in what he said. When there's passion involved in a situation feelings can be high and positive or negative. I can't say I've seen any time when SO'D has been passionate about being the Doncaster Rovers' Manager.
