Damage Control

Hello Everyone,

So by now you all have prob. heard that Skip, Drew, and I are no longer with the team. I would like to start off this by saying this was by no means an easy decision. I spent hours even days consulting my parents, my agent, and other players on how best to go about this situation. Yes I know a couple posts back I said everything was fine, and the team made me out to be a liar. Everything was not fine because of more promises that were broken or swept under the rug. By now you should know I try to be as honest as possible, I don’t hide things on this blog. There were many factors that went into my decision which I will discuss a few, and I will also leave one for later post that I can not get into right at this moment, but first a message to my former teammates.

I believe captain bomba said it best after the meeting with the Yarick and the other guys about “everyone has to do what is right for them now”. This was of course said after Yarick said he would not change anything to an annex that was proposed to us (basically we wanted to protect ourselves and he said screw you go home) that was the last straw for me. He had pushed me over the edge and I wanted out. The management split the team up and forced them to longer be able to make decisions as a team. I’m sorry that it came to this and I do wish you guys the best of luck in the playoffs. Personally I knew I could no longer give 100% to the team. I was very unhappy with how management has treated us all year, but even after the cup I found it even more disrespectful. I knew with me being very unhappy it would be hard to have a good week of practice and even be effective in the games. Also from what we had found out before even going to the cup is we may not have even been insured. I don’t know how true this is or was but that is another huge risk that we were taking. I do hope you guys understand that this decision was made on what I felt was best for me. Is that selfish? In a way yes but that is what management has been all year. I know many of you personally were very upset as well on how they were treating us, but since it was your home country it was hard for you to do anything. Again I am sorry it came to this but the real people to blame are the snakes that run the club.

To the fans that feel I deserted or “ran like a girl” I am also truly sorry. This is by no means the way I wanted this to end. I have a scenario for you. Let’s say I offer you a job to come work at my step-dads jail for 9 months (he is a sheriff). When you get here I’m going to give you just a little money to live off of. Every time you are scheduled to get paid I’m going to say “next week”. Then after you are here for 5 months I’m then going to be two months behind on paying you, but still tell you things are great and we have everything coming in. so you decide to stay thousands of miles away from your family, using the very slow internet I give you to communicate to the people you need to. So you decide to stay because you like who you’re working with and you’re having a “GREAT YEAR”. As soon as you can no longer take another job, I am then going to tell you we have no more money and need you to now give up a lot of your money. So since your having fun and enjoying yourself you agree to this. Well then I’m not going to follow through with what I agreed with you. I’m now going to change it again, and not meet halfway with you. I’m also not going to give you any money for a taxi or no car.

Now if that sounds like a great job for you, come thousands of miles from your family, come on over to Indiana and I can hook it up for you. I would love to see how long you stick it out. That is in a nutshell what the situation was for me. Actually I think I put it mildly. I honestly had the most stressful and close to the worst 2 months of my life these last two. The only joy was finishing third and winning the cup. Should you guys understand what I went through? No! why would you? But before you blast me with comments about what terrible people skip, drew, and I are ,I really think you have the wrong people as the enemy. I have broad shoulders so I will take the rude comments and hatred. We did not ask for any of this, we came over and worked as hard as we could to accomplish as many wins as possible and wanted to win the cup and playoffs. Also for those who think it is solely about money I go back to the post a couple weeks ago where I mentioned no one would have stayed as long as we did if it was only about money. It is also about treating people with integrity and honesty. You can only push someone so far before they push back. Do I need you guys to understand or take my side? Of course not people will have there opinions and that is fine. I am truly sorry it came to this but I had full support from many people that I love and TRUST and at the end of the day had to do what I felt was best for me.

For the people that blame the economy for what happened in kotwica has it just a little off. The economy did not tell them to lie to us about the situation. The economy did not say to keep us after trade deadline so we could not find another way to make a livelihood. I will also give the biggest factor of all in why we HAD to leave when we did, but I can not say that now because it could potentially hurt some others that don’t need hurt.

I also saw the article that first reported us as gone. I believe it said we left after receiving our outstanding debts. This also was not the case, they still owe us money. The deal was we would sign the annex and we would have all the outstanding money before the first playoff game. Of course the club never followed through with that and said they needed another meeting on April 15. If somehow we lost they could have shut it down and not gave us ANY thing for the work we have done. With the kind of people management is we could not take that risk.

Again I’m sorry it ended this way, because I really think it could have been avoided with just a little effort and actually management showing they cared about the employees just a little bit.

And i did tell everyone bye on Friday, and left all the things i gave to them with them. This idea was also suggested to us by coach, so i find it kind of funny seeing the comments he made about us in the paper. He has been one of the ones that have told us lies and kept us here so he can look good on the resume. Why should i bash him it would not matter his favorite players (Kevin, Sefton, and Kiko) are still there for him to play favorites with.

Until next time

This is BC gone for now

Brandon,
first of all, i undertand ur decision but try to understand us. We were worried about the club conditions and thought that i gonna be end. Then u finished on the 3rd place and won Polish cup. We really thought that u want to win the championship for Kotwica. Now when we believed that we will fight we the best in Poland and maybe we can finally be one of the hero's in Poland u run out without any word. i understand that "no pay no play and i support u with that, but we can be disapointed about what u did.

Patryk said...

Good post. You showed everything very well. Of course people will blame you but I'm more than shure that everyone will leave team earlier... no pay no game, sad but true.

I wish you all good luck and I hope we will have opportunity to watch you in Poland again :)

ehh... i understand a bit your decision but i cant understand why you leave us in the most important moment in the season! there are play offs tomorrow... i thought that you would stay until kotwica ended the season. i was wrong. i am disappointed on you. i thought you would respect us - the fans. i am really sorry about your decision.. see you soon maybe again in kotwica.

After reading this post I just can say that you did what you needed. So good luck in your future career and maybe one day we will see you again in Poladn (I hope so!).

I think you did right. In short terms is bad for Kotwica, but maybe in long term is better for them and polish basketball. We don't want cheaters in the management of the clubs. We don't want clubs to make contracts without having money. Maybe next time they'll think twice.

Admin said...

Brandon,
I've enjoyed reading your blog ever since you left Butler. It's frustrating for me when reading these last few posts (and especially some of the comments), so I can't imagine how you must feel living it firsthand.

It sucks that things didn't work out as planned, but you've experienced something that many of us can only dream of. Unfortunately, when inconvience becomes personal risk, you aren't left with many options. You did the right thing in leaving; you kept your integrity and showed compassion by staying as long as you did. You continue to make a lot of people proud to call themselves bulldogs, myself included. I wish you all the best, and I'll be rooting for you no matter where you end up.

Brandon, i tell you something, you telling us fans about money? Didn't you sign contract? Didn't you get that what you signed? That's what we know you become this money. If you will be honest person, you will say - i don't want annex to contract, give my whole money, if not i will go home. You didn't do that. Imagine that most of your fans becomes 1200 zl for month...

You wasn't here best player and of course you win with the team cup, but please, don't tell us how hard you tried to play, beacuse one game was good, other was really bad.

There are play offs tomorrow. Only one thing you showed us, the only one thing you taking care about it's MONEY. You never cared aobut team and fans. So, like you said, if you were discussing that already for days (your escape), you shouldn't come to presentation after the cup winning. It will be honest to your fans.

I paid for my tickets till the end of the season? What's now? Will you give me back part of my money back?

Sorry, but you're not honest person.

It's funny... You writing here thet Kiko, Sefton, Kevin and coach are lied to fans and management?

So it means you are the only one person,who the club can trust?

I see that Brandon Crone is a coward in every piece of him. He cutts off all the coments which seems to be critical for his worthless bevaviour (he cuts off all these comments even if they do not contain any bad words. That proves me he really is a coward he can shout some voices in here but he will not shut our voices of anger in the whole Poland and I believe and really trust that not even a single better club in europe will ever give him a well paid job - no club want to pay a lot of money for the refugee players

in a club it's just like in marriage - you stay with your partner (club) for good and bad - and you stayed only when thing's went good - you were too scared to stay in club when things might get worse - even fans of our next rivals on their forum they are really sad that you bring kotwica such a shame cause they've expected a battle with 100% of mights from every team and now Kotwica is sinking ...we can just thank to you for that

Anonymous said...

Hey BC,

I 100% agree with the opinion - it doesn't matter what you did, it's about how and predominately WHEN you did it.

You say Kotwica management lied to you? OK, I agree - they crap. But look at yourself... You lied to all the fans big time, even in you previous posts. I probably don't know most of the details but still can't believe your words - the team made me to lie?! Poor thing, I guess you were you chained up to the keyboard...

And I must say, boy you got the MOMENTUM. Perfect time to leave the team no matter what… Right before play-offs, right before the most important weeks of the season. Why didn’t you leave after winning against Czarni? It’s not even 2 more weeks. I personally don’t believe Kotwa was able to beat Turow in semi-finals, so why not saying EVERYTING loud after reaching semis - the best achievement in club’s history and then leave? You would have done more than you think – be a part of club’s history, say proper good bay and first of all – reveal to public unknown details of management activities. There are couple of webpages and newspapers that would take your story and bring it to daylight. Cup winner, semi-finalists, great underdogs who achieved so much even though they were treated disrespectfully by management… Can you see that? Probably no, but what you can see is “three deserters”, “Kotwica weakened by it’s top players. And just before playoffs ”…

You’re saying you consulted your agent? Piece of advice – don’t listen to him anymore… 2 more weeks wouldn’t change a thing, but you would have become the one who is remembered as a great player and a humble man… the one who is not afraid to say things loud and clear…

You were not happy and couldn’t give 100%? Let me ask you a question – who is better from the bench – unhappy and not fully committed player who’s been with the team from the beginning of the season, the player who is not afraid to take responsibility in final minutes of the game, the player who can defend against top players or rather an 18 year old (no disrespect) guy who hasn’t played a game in the league? Brandon – it was 2 more weeks…

It’s about thousands more things I want to say but let me cut the story short - I respect your decision. No money, no respect from management, no life... At the end of the day we all work for money and want respect. Kotwa is another team you played / will be playing for... As I said – no matter what you did, you probably were right. It’s how and when you did it.

As one of Kotwa fans I still believe it was a joke… It will end dramatically today at 6pm CET…

Good luck for future.

Hi Brandon
No problem, we understood.
Could you write more about economy in Kotwica and who do this from managment team in Kotwica. We want to know the name or initials taht peoples who do this situation in Kotwica team.
Thanks for the good game and blog

Anonymous said...

Brandon, Knowing you as many years as I have I know your decision was not made easily. You are taking a beating from the fans because you are the one with the blog. It is so unfortunate that the fans have no real idea about all that has gone on, great job on trying to explain without getting down and dirty. The Polish Cup was a great accomplishment and you, Skip and Drew should be proud, especially given the situation prior to playing in it. Funny, you guys were not paid before the cup and no way to know if you would get paid and yet all three of you still stuck around and WON!! When you finally agree the attitude of the club leadership and the "jerking around" they continued to do was really too much, many of your so called fans jump your sh..! Guess maybe you should have left before the Cup and it might have been easier on them. I hope you will share with Drew and Skip that there are those of us who appreciate all you gave in spite of a CONSTANT battle, not only getting screwed out lots of money but then having to read so many rude, nasty comments. I am sure they would all play for half their salary or less, never mind the day to day uncertainty of the league (threats of a possible fold), and return home with the economy as it is and hope you can get a job to make up the difference. My biggest question is why is all the anger directed at the three of you and not at the people at the top for treating you guys like that. Its obvious the playoffs are not such a big deal to everyone or maybe the club would honor the contract or at least be upfront about the situation. I am sure when you said everything looks good, we will finish off the season, it was exactly with that intent. As I stated earlier, knowing you so well, you are one of the most honest, kind hearted guys around, I am guessing the rules changed once again, therefore the decision was made with much agony that it was best to leave. You have talked so positively about the fans, I am sorry for the return. I know it was a tough call. Thanks to Skip, Drew and yourself for a terrific year. Best wishes for a sucessfull future. We will be following you as always. Appreciate your attempt to explain and will continue to enjoy the blog.

Brandon let's face the truth - we would understand your decision (and maybe even your chicken way o escaping like a refugee) if it would be situation like that that because of delayed money you hadn't credits to live ... poor you ... you were starving cause they didn't pay you and you were so hungry ... let's face it you've earned in a month more than normal people in my country would earn in a year and you escaped like a monkey to the jungle we (i mean alle the fans of kotwica and i do not include here some comments which probobly wrote here your friends from us or your family or even you) will not forget and will not forgive

Anonymous said...

Just curious, do people in Kotwica work for money or just for the opportunity to live there?

Its a job......get it jerks a J O B, and the responsability is with the employer FIRST. You don't have to be family or friends to see clearly the real picture, just a person who understands business. Hmmmmm some people leave JOBS when they do get paid and are treated fairly.

Ditto on the forget and forgivness, hopefully those guys are not looking for either from such fans. Doubtful they will forget or forgive much on such a positive experience. You should be proud standing up for such crap from the Kotwica leadership. From a huge fan of Skip and Brandon (didn't know Drew but will support him now) GREAT to have you back in the USA. Enjoy, relax, and MOVE ON. Brandon, why take this crap, you owe them what?????? Thanks to the support of those in Kotwica who get it. Good luck in the future.

BRANDON You escaped like a rat from a ship. For me, like for all of us, you are not a professional basket player, just a still complaining pregnancy woman. If bus to Sopot was too small for you, maybe you sholud play for NBA, they use plane. But in NBA you could only carry a towel for professional player (much better than you).
I'm writting after game, won game, KOTWICA - CZARNI 70-58. And as you can see, we don't need you to play good game. But SKIP and DREW - what's a shame.
I don't say "good luck" for you, becouse I'm not interested in what are you going to do, for me you can even be a waiter!

probably tomorrow on tvp.pl/sport will be streaming Kotwica game.

I respect your decision. Even haters respect your game and appreciate you as a player becouse they know without you kotwica is worser. Everyone talks that" if i will be Brandon Crone i'll stay with kotwica" but they are not professional BBall Playas, they talk bullshit all day but they can't even handle the ball. Now " if i will be Brandon Crone i'll stay with kotwica" but if I will be in situation like BC I don't know what I will do... Keep fit..lool

Sad is this what I am readin' here. I understand, that majority of you be disappointed guy's decision, but nobody with you tries it will be like they. I understand them very good. I know, how this is see closer's people by the internet. Shame me for polish people... Huge pissing off on boys from abroad, and we are not better. We lie, we rob and we leave without any word..

Therefore , instead of write without sense, let every look on oneself..

I think it's just like that - some wrote about running away like a rat from the sinking ship You Crone did it just like that and You say youre proud that the team you leaved won - that's strange because you're glad that some other people milion times more honorfull than you stayed and tried to do everything they could to hold this sinking ship above the water for a short period more? they know they do not have a chance to win the championship they don't even dream of it the max they could dream is to pass Czarni slupsk but that would be a great sensation. You have stolen their chancec and not from your personal escape (cause you weren't that good you know) but you were the one who made other 2 more valuable players leave like rats just like you i don't know how you're gonna leave with that but if that situation doesn't make you confused, ashamed it means that you're worthless

IF CRONE STINKS SO BAD AS A PLAYER WHY WHY WHY DO YOU KEEP PUTTING UP YOUR CRAP OPINION ON THE BLOG. YOU SHOULD BE THRILLED TO HAVE HIM OUT OF THERE, WHO WANTS A RAT RIGHT? I AM GUESSING YOU ARE SO GOOD YOU JUST CHOOSE NOT TO PLAY FOR YOUR TEAM.

Opinions are like noses: everybody has one!

When folks would say to my younger sister,"If I's you I'd...", she'd reply,"If you's me you'd do
'xactly what I'm doin'." Pretty wise words from a child!

Considering the source doesn't relieve the hurt words cause. Yet, considering the source may help the healing.

We humans aren't equiped with the ability to forget but, if we choose to do so, we can
forgive. "Forgiveness takes the sting out of revenge."

As you sort thru all that's happened, remember the good times and be grateful for what you've learned from this experience.

Of course it's a joke.

Some of the people here writing that basket for you it's a job. But i think you lie little bit about your money. Doesn't matter

You write here on your bolg that you had here so many problems. You didn't become money even for taxi (Kolobrzeg is so small that you can walk from one side to another in one hour)-that's funny for me. That's what i know Kotwica never pay for something like this. You wrote also that you missed your country. So maybe you should stay there and try in NBA.

Like other people say it's no matter what you did but how. You're not honest person, you lie to us, to the fans. And i think you should know about it.

Anyway we won yesterday, with honest and good players, who stay with us. We are proud of them. And sorry, of you not anymore...

Hi Brandon,
I have the honor of Brandon have great hope that you and Drew and Skip return to Kotwica Kolobrzeg. All you can fix it! Is the only problem is money? How much you need to give you money to go back to polish? I want you to you, Skip and Drew played in the play-off against Czarni Slupsk. You can get a medal championship Poland. Brandon! Sooner or later, and so you get the money from the club for their game - so be a sorrow and regret! Here in Poland to be the real men - the hard men ...
damage, too ...

Sorry to hear of your situation -- it's bad for everyone. It seems you have acted with integrity and respect for the team all the way, and gotten little in return from the management. I understand that it can be disappointing and frustrating for the fans left behind, but you have to do what is right for you.

Best of luck with your next team!

Once again I ask, why if Brandon is such a bad player waste your time complaining about the departure?

You continue to talk about how bad of a player he is and yet bitch bitch bitch about them leaving.

The last thing Kotwica deserves is a Polish Cup! Talk about character issues!

Really Brandon can you just not start a different blog? For those of us who respect you, your game, Skip and Drew we would like to move on. Shit happens.

Brandon is a funkin bad player but we do not blame him for his weekness (if he didn't manage to get in the first 5 of KOTWICA basic players threw the whole season that means he doesn't deserve it - look at Kikowski - even he's much much beteer than crone ) we blame this funkin little coward for causing other two much more valuable players (they were from basic 5 hehehe :)to leave the team with him - and when? just when they've got the delayed money - the rats got their promised peace of cheese so they escaped - brandon - considering you to a little girls is not honest ...cause even small girls have much more honest than you funkin egoist

creating new team in Kotwica the firs question on the interview for a job in Kotwica Kolobrzeg team should be "are you a fucken trader? " only the answer "NO" should let the player have a chance our "wonderfull 3 refugee" would't pass this firs qualification round

No money, no funny and I give you full respect. If I were you I will do exactly the same. I can imagine it was a difficult choice and guilty is only management of Kotwica and city hall. Mr Gromek such a big fun of Kotwa didn't have time to resolve the problem. This is a ridicoulous that we couldn't find the money for the best team in whole Kolobrzeg history. My only dream is to see you again next week in Slupsk and show all the asshouls that money is not the most important thing but I guess it is not possible...pity. Anyway good luck, you were GOOD....and we lost today :( Brgds HNS from Kolobrzeg

I think I'm going to move to Poland and start a company. It seems that all these idiots think it's okay to work for free so I think I will hire all of you to make me rich while I never pay you. I'm looking forward to this business endeavor!

Anonymous said...

Wow, people from Poland realy seem to be ignorant.

I just don't understand how they cannot place any of the blame on the management/ownership of the team?

Brandon did what he had to, to protect his ability to earn a living in this business. If he does not respect himslef by doing what is right, who will?

I'm guessing that Polish law probably lags behind normal civilization as well? Do laws not enforce payment from employers? Seems like a legal case could be made against the organization?

Best of luck Brandon, you did what was right. Teams will respect your decision, even if some of these idiots cannot face reality of what it means to be employed.

Your fans/friends from Indianapolis

we idiots in poland don't think is good to work for nopthing, but if you don't know brandon was becoming here (of course for us) huge money and moste of them he becomes.
the only one thing we sauy, he is a liar. he told us with drew, and skipp after the cup winning, that they want, all together, win the championchip
if he is so smart and honest, he should say, i will see, if i don't become all my money before playoffs i will go home
now i can just tell you that he is not the honest person and he hasn't honour. that's all
if you thing that in poland we are so stiupid, i just tell you, that im going from time to time to usa,and most of the people there doesn't know where poland is. So i don't think you can be good in business...

Hey guys calm down. It's not an easy problem and there isn't any good thing that can make everyone happy. One will say: Brandon you.... lalalal and the rest will defend him. Brandon left as he has his problems and that's his decisions. I believe that you BC will find nice team with money and make your new fans happy. I like you and your decision was your decision. Let's end this topic. Peace.

Hej Kotwica fans, leave that puss alone, that was his choice...

Anonymous said...

Maybe it was his choice, but he left other players, who want to fight in play offs. Is he a God that he can choose for him and for other people also?

Anonymous said...

it was his choice he is a free man, but it doesnt change a fact that he is a big puss:)

Brandon guzik mnie interesuje ze wpisalem sie po polsku. Jak bedziesz chcial wiedziec co napisalem to rusz dupe do tlumacza i zaplac za tlumaczenie. A wracajac do Waszej dezercji ... to tak samo jak Twoja niezwyciezona armia zdezerterowala z Wietnamu. A co bys powiedzial idzac z szabelka nad zagony pancerne nad Bzura? Wiem ze to glupota ... ale mowi ona kto ma jaja. A Tobie ich zabraklo. Ogromny szacunek zysklabys odchodzac po zakonczeniu sezonu zasadniczego (wiadomo - nie placa to nie ma grania). Ale odszedles po zdobyciu Pucharu Polski oraz zapewnieniach ze powalczycie o medale. Swoim odejsciem podciales skrzydla i skasowales marzenia pozostalych kolegow z druzyny. Nie widziales ich po waszym odejsciu. Ludzie wiedzieli ze nie maja placone, ale chcieli zdobyc wszystko to co mozna bylo zdobyc, a przy okazji zbudowac sobie CV na kolejne kontrakty. Ty, Julien i Drew zachowaliscie sie egoistycznie. Nie trzeba bylo obiecywac walki do konca. Trzeba bylo odejsc zaraz po sezonie zasadniczym. Byles moim ulubionym zawodnikiem, ktory robil niesamowita robote w obronie. Nazywalem cie tytanem pracy. I wszystko to skasowales, tak jak formatuje sie dysk twardy. Nie zycze Ci kolorowej przyszlosci ale tez nie zycze Ci nic zlego. Stales sie dla mnie przezroczysty, bezbarwny i obcy.

Brandon button I am interested I wrote in Polish. How do you want to know what I wrote to move ass to pay for interpreter and translation. And going back to your dezercji escape ... is the same as your super deserted the army in Vietnam. And what about go the headlands above szabelka Bzura armor on? I know that it is stupidity ... but who says she has eggs. And you run them. Great respect zysklabys season after leaving the principal (you know - there is no place to play). But you went Cup after winning assurances from the Polish and will fighting for medals. His departure cut wings and dreams delete colleagues from other teams. Not seen them at your absence. People know that they are paid, but wanted to get everything what you were offered, and when you build your CV for further contracts. You, Julien and Drew zachowaliscie August selfishly. Do not have to promise to fight to the end. It was necessary to go right after the season essential. You were my favorite player, who did an incredible job in defense. He called the work of titanium. And all this skasowales as format the hard drive in August. You do not want the future of color but also you do not want anything wrong. Become for me a clear, colorless and strangers.

And back to your escape ... is the same as your super army escaped from Vietnam. And what about going with the sword of the headlands on Bzurą armor during World War II? I know that it is stupidity ... but who says she has eggs. And you run them. Great respect for you would be if the season has gone at the end of the principal (you know - there is no place to play). But your ucieczka Polish Cup after winning assurances that, despite playing for medals is pathetic. His departure broke the wings of dreams and deleted the other colleagues from the team. Do not see them after your departure. People know that they are paid, but wanted to get everything what you can get, and when you build your CV for further contracts. You, Julien and Drew are egoistami. You do not have to promise to fight to the end. You should have to leave right after the season essential. You were my favorite player, who did an amazing job on defense. He called you working with titanium. And all this skasowałeś as the formats the hard disk. I do not want you to color the future but also do not wish you anything bad. For me to become clear, colorless and strangers.

nikogo nie prosilem o tlumaczenie jeno tylko Brandona ale jesli tak to ... prosze:
"Brandon, I don't give a deamn - I wrote this in Polish. If you want to know what I wrote, than get your ass to a translation office and pay for a translation. Getting back to you escaping.. It's just like your super army fleeing from Vietnam. And what would you say if you had to fight with just a sable against armored field-patches during the fight at Bzura river? It may be a stupid thing to do . but is shows who's got the guts. And that's what you are missing - balls. I'd have a huge respect for you if you left just after initial season had ended (normal thing - no pay, no play). But you escaped just after winning Polish Cup and promising that you would fight for medals. By your escape you clipped the wings and stole the dreams of the rest of your teammates. You should have seen their faces after you left. People knew that they were not paid but they wanted to win everything that could be won while improving their CVs for the future contracts. You, Julien and Drew are simply egoists. You shouldn't have promised to fight till the end. You should have left after the initial season. You were my favorite player, that did an incredible job in defense. I called you a work titan. But you deleted it all as you were formatting a hard drive. I don't wish you a bright future but I don't wish you anything bad. You've become transparent for me - plain and strange."

Hi
I'm from Walbrzych and I'm a big fan of Victoria Gornik Walbrzych. I had an occasion to get acquainted with a similar situation in my favorite club during the season. In Gornik we also had a big financial problems and because of that many players decided to leave Walbrzych. So , I'm pretty sure that if the gornik had money they wouldn't loose their stars. The same situation in Kotwica. Moreover, there are some other similarities between these 2 clubs. Both have a terrible management which is telling lies to their fans and players and this is the biggest problem - not the economic crisis.
