I think confrontation is healthy, because it clears the air very quickly.
If you've ever won a championship, then that's all you're interested in doing.
No matter how much you've won, no matter how many games, no matter how many championships, no matter how many Super Bowls, you're not winning now, so you stink.
You don't get any medal for trying something, you get medals for results.
If you have fun, fine. It's not all life and death.
