players to win, it would have been disrespectful to all the players and to the game of football as well. The negative of Lombardi’s ideology is that most people do not succeed at what they are doing and it brings along a feeling of failure lowered self-esteem and problems with interpersonal relationships. This is a tremendous negative to Lombardi’s beliefs. However it is still positive to push people to succeed. For those that do succeed it is worth it. For a coach to care so much about his players is such a rare and wonderful thing. This is the type of mentality that sets Vince Lombardi apart from so many other coaches. When a coach cares this much about his players it means he has an emotional attachment to his team that will only make the team a stronger unit. A lot of people in our society think that the coaches are demeaning the athletes by screaming and yelling at them when all they are trying to do is get the best out of each and every athlete. There are some coaches who demean the athletes and that is a problem. People like that should not be coaching. This is not what Vince Lombardi was doing.
