They'd boo Santa Claus, this mob.

There is nothing in the contract that says a football coach has to be sane or a good loser.
Jack Gibson quotes
They all seem to limp a little extra when they are replaced.
Jack Gibson
The day that God invented Rugby League he didn't do anything else but sit around and feel good.

Kick it to the seagulls.

The big test in football is how a captain leads under conditions of adversity.

Jack Gibson quotes
Pain only hurts when you feel it.
Jack Gibson
He is about as big as Clive Churchill was when he played and he owns an ugly dog.
Gibson quotes
In football, if you are standing still, you're going backwards fast.
Gibson Jack
To win a championship, you've got to have a nucleus of five or six real tough, hard competitors. To win anything, the team's got to think tough and that infiltrates into the individual. You've got to have a tough leader.
Gibson Jack quotes
That guy is so quick, he can switch off the light and get into bed before the room is dark.
Jack Gibson
I think he must have an egg-timer - every four minutes, he blows the whistle.
Jack Gibson quotes
I realised fairly early that the 'wisdom of the ages' - whether from 3000 years ago or yesterday - often was simply and perfectly adaptable to the context of the football arena, and immensely valuable. From my regular morning habit of reading, I would write down any wise, pragmatic and smart quotes and ideas that struck me, and that I felt could be of use in coaching.
Jack Gibson
The use of video evidence is not always conclusive, but it sure beats the memory bank of most witnesses.
Gibson Jack
The game today is entirely different to when I played. But I still think it's pretty smart. Maybe the biggest change lies in the simple fact that if you're a bit slow today, mentally or physically, you're not going to survive.
