Also a funny quote from Irvin I remember one time Irvin explaining why you need veterans in the lockerroom, even when you have coaches for that.
"Player's are afraid of coaches because they are like your work boss. If they don't like you, they can fire you, and you don't get paid. Player's fear veteran players because they're like your daddy. That's a whole other thing. There's a difference between boss-fear and daddy-fear."
