Winning Teams Quotes By Bronson Arroyo

People don't own teams to lose money. If you ask any owner whether they would rather make $20 million and come in last place or lose $20 million and win a World Series, there's only one guy who honestly would take that championship: George Steinbrenner. Nobody else. — Bronson Arroyo

Winning Teams Quotes By Eric Byrnes

Winning Teams Quotes By Joe Torre

When I was a teenager and my brother Frank was in the World Series in '57 and '58 against the Yankees, Braves winning in '57 and the Yankees in '58, little did I know the next time these two teams would meet in the World Series, I would be managing the Yankees. — Joe Torre

Winning Teams Quotes By Teddy Sheringham

Even championship-winning teams don't play well all the time. — Teddy Sheringham

Winning Teams Quotes By Don Yaeger

That's one of the great oddities of baseball: Success is relative. A hitter who fails 70 percent of the time at the plate is a potential member of the National Baseball Hall of Fame, and many World Championship teams lose more than 70 games during their title-winning seasons. — Don Yaeger

Winning Teams Quotes By LaMarcus Aldridge

The Spurs really are a family. They have a bunch of good guys that want to win, and the way they play is so unselfish. I'm looking forward to being involved in it. I feel that teams with players who are very close end up winning. — LaMarcus Aldridge

Winning Teams Quotes By Sourav Ganguly

You are anxious before every game because you had to win it. If you didn't you went down the ladder. I felt proud of the way we beat some teams in tough games. — Sourav Ganguly

Winning Teams Quotes By Dan Groat

Winning and losing was suddenly elevated to be about things that had no score and no teams and no uniforms; just one player at a time dealing with his life, his own struggle, his own triumph and torment. — Dan Groat

Winning Teams Quotes By Hubie Brown

Winning teams at the NBA level, the college level, and the high school level all play team basketball. Championship teams have five players on the same page at all times. — Hubie Brown

Winning Teams Quotes By Peter Bondra

Look at great teams like Detroit a couple of years ago; they win the Stanley Cup and guys only score 25 goals, nobody has a really big season. — Peter Bondra

Winning Teams Quotes By Derek Jeter

A lot of teams, I think, are just happy to make the post-season. Here, you have to win. — Derek Jeter

Winning Teams Quotes By Jeremy Hotz

None of my teams win anything. They are an extension of my personality. — Jeremy Hotz

Winning Teams Quotes By Peyton Manning

Touchdowns to me means that you're scoring points and helping your team win games. You can have a lot of yards and not have points and not win games. So, this only means something because it has helped our teams win games and we won the division today in a competitive AFC West, that's a good thing. — Peyton Manning

Winning Teams Quotes By Simon Kuper

Clubs are all about winning. National teams, however, have an additional function: to incarnate the nation. — Simon Kuper

Winning Teams Quotes By Charlie Weis

One of the teams (Tennessee) that jumped us had the same game that we had. They're down, they're playing at home and they win by a field goal. Another team (Florida) that jumped us wasn't even playing. They were home eating cheeseburgers and they end up jumping us. That befuddles me, — Charlie Weis

Winning Teams Quotes By Michael Jordan

We're not winning because of talent. We're just beating bad teams. — Michael Jordan

Winning Teams Quotes By Jonathan Haidt

Morality binds and blinds. It binds us into ideological teams that fight each other as though the fate of the world depended on our side winning each battle. It blinds us to the fact that each team is composed of good people who have something important to say. — Jonathan Haidt

Winning Teams Quotes By Bear Bryant

At Alabama, our players don't win Heisman Trophies. Our teams win National Championships. — Bear Bryant

Winning Teams Quotes By Lou Holtz

All winning teams are goal-oriented. Teams like these win consistently because everyone connected with them concentrates on specific objectives. They go about their business with blinders on; nothing will distract them from achieving their aims. — Lou Holtz

Winning Teams Quotes By Albert Pujols

People from other teams want to play in St. Louis and they're jealous that we're in St. Louis because the fans are unbelievable. So why would you want to leave a place like St. Louis to go somewhere else and make $3 or $4 more million a year? It's not about the money. I already got my money. It's about winning and that's it. It's about accomplishing my goal and my goal is to try to win. If this organization shifts the other way then I have to go the other way. — Albert Pujols

Winning Teams Quotes By Larry Dixon

Winning teams have the least amount of distractions. They have a really tight group of people working towards the same common goal. — Larry Dixon

Winning Teams Quotes By Wasim Akram

Today, he showed the world why he is considered the best batsman around. Some of the shots he played were simply amazing. Earlier, opposing teams used to feel that Sachin's dismissal meant they could win the game. Today, I feel that the Indian players, too, feel this way. — Wasim Akram

Winning Teams Quotes By Joe Torre

I think that winning creates chemistry, as opposed to other way around. I've been on a lot of friendly teams that couldn't win, trust me. — Joe Torre

Winning Teams Quotes By Justin Langer

Experience tells us that few matches are won on the back of one or two good sessions of play. To win a Test match most teams have to win and outplay the opposition for extended periods of time. — Justin Langer

Winning Teams Quotes By Barry Switzer

It never changes. Football is a game of repetition, mental and physical. You may try to articulate it a little different, but it's the same thing: Get better players, make fewer mistakes, and drill the fundamentals into your players' heads. The rest of it is a joke. Teams aren't winning because of what they had for breakfast of what some coach said in the locker room. — Barry Switzer

Winning Teams Quotes By Jimmie Johnson

The Daytona 500 is a career-winning race. It defines careers for drivers, crew members, crew chiefs and race teams. It has that power. — Jimmie Johnson

Winning Teams Quotes By Masai Ujiri

Honestly, I think winning changes all of that. It doesn't matter where you are - it could be Timbuktu - if you win, people will watch, they'll follow and they'll support. It's my responsibility to put a team on the floor that will win, and that attracts players. Look at the teams that have been successful in the NBA. Yes, you have big, glamorous cities like L.A. But Miami has won, and so has San Antonio. Oklahoma City is a very successful team. They're not the biggest markets. — Masai Ujiri

Winning Teams Quotes By Jose Mourinho

In my teams, when we win, we all win, and when we lose, I lose — Jose Mourinho

Winning Teams Quotes By Paul Pierce

Both teams want to win and they want to do everything possible. You don't think about the fatigue factor. You're just trying to grind it out to get the win. — Paul Pierce

Winning Teams Quotes By Pete Rose

Any time you've got big teams winning, you've got big stars. — Pete Rose

Winning Teams Quotes By Bobby Knight

During my 40-year coaching career at West Point, Indiana and Texas Tech, my teams reached the Final Four on five occasions, winning the national championship three times. — Bobby Knight

Winning Teams Quotes By Lou Holtz

After winning, most teams become individuals; most teams become complacent. — Lou Holtz

Winning Teams Quotes By Tom Peters

Winning Teams Quotes By LeBron James

Teams make it tough on us, we make it tough on them. When you have two well coached teams that wanna win, it's going to be a competitive game. — LeBron James

Winning Teams Quotes By Kris Draper

Actually it was easier than you'd think. We were the guys who had the opportunity to play for something. Only 26 players on the eight teams had that chance. We would wake up in the morning and have a reason to train. We are able to have four weeks to play at this level. Since the first day our policy was not to talk about the labor situation. Our goal was to win. We'll enjoy it for one night. Then the reality of the owners locking us out sets in. — Kris Draper

Winning Teams Quotes By Samir Nasri

It is annoying. The work we do is not getting the credit it deserves because we are not winning silverware. It is unfair because I think we have more merit as a club than those who have built their teams with millions of pounds whereas Arsenal have brought in young footballers, who have come here to play a certain kind of football and who have developed. — Samir Nasri

Winning Teams Quotes By Skip Prosser

It is totally different. But once we went to 12 teams, that's just the way it was going to be. It's just a reality. But I don't think it's beyond the realm of possibility that some team can win four games in four days and win the whole thing. — Skip Prosser

Winning Teams Quotes By Bill Taylor

Players win games, teams win championships. — Bill Taylor

Winning Teams Quotes By Tucker Elliot

Baseball is known for superstitious players and cursed teams - and at the root of every curse there's a story. Boston's curse was to trade Babe Ruth to the Yankees. Cubs fans claim a billy goat is responsible for their futility. And Cleveland's curse? The club struggled after its Pennant-winning 1954 season, but it was rich with optimism just two years later as an onslaught of new talent promised to lift the club once more to the ranks of baseball's elite - and by 1959 the club was contending for the Pennant again. And then GM Frank Lane traded Rocky Colavito to the Detroit Tigers and cursed everything. — Tucker Elliot

Winning Teams Quotes By Mac Anderson

For many years, Darrel Royal was the football coach for the University of Texas at Austin. They always had great teams and winning records. Sometimes, however, when they won a close game, a sportswriter would suggest that while the Longhorns were skilled, they had been lucky on that day. Hearing it one time too often, Coach Royal finally said, "Luck is partly the residue of design, the simple act of being prepared for luck when it arrives." And there is something else to luck, Royal said - luck follows speed. Move, and luck finds you. Move quickly, and it finds you more often. — Mac Anderson

Winning Teams Quotes By Pat Riley

In all the research you do as a coach, studying other coaches and championship-type situations, you find that all those teams combined talent with great defense. You've got to stop other teams to win. — Pat Riley

Winning Teams Quotes By John Elway

You always want to have good balance. That's the key to winning a Super Bowl. You look at the teams who have won championships, you got to have balance. So, to be able to run the ball effectively and throw the ball effectively is what gives you the chance to win a world championship. — John Elway

Winning Teams Quotes By Stephen Covey

Trust is the glue that holds everything together. It creates the environment in which all of the other elements win-win stewardship agreements, self-directing individuals and teams, aligned structures and systems, and accountability can flourish. — Stephen Covey

Winning Teams Quotes By Robin Van Persie

It's my dream and I see no point in speaking about other teams when I have these dreams. I think other people know that about me; I'm just hungry to win with Arsenal and that's it. — Robin Van Persie

Winning Teams Quotes By Walt Frazier

When the Knicks won the championship in 1970, our fans rallied behind us and became our sixth man because they saw a group of five distinct personalities come together and play as one seamless unit. Winning takes a game plan and that's where a great coach comes in. He has to have the vision. He has to be the architect and design a particular style of play that his players can work together and excel at. The great Celtics teams that won 11 championships in the span of 13 seasons ( 1957-69) never changed their system. They played the same game regardless of who their cast was. — Walt Frazier

Winning Teams Quotes By Greg Schiano

We may still have as many questions after the game as we did before the game. But that's OK. Good teams answer their questions as they go, but they do it with wins. We didn't get it done last week - we found a way to get it done this week. — Greg Schiano

Winning Teams Quotes By Gareth Bale

When you play in the Premier League, say you're playing against a lower-end team, they set up to defend all the time, they set up to block you off. But when you play in the Champions League, all the other teams are used to winning every week, so it's more of an open game, it's more attacking, end-to-end. — Gareth Bale

Winning Teams Quotes By Trey Burke

A lot of people talk about the Fab Five, and they were wonderful, one of the best teams you'll ever see in college basketball. But the '89 team is the best one to ever play at Michigan in my opinion because they won the national championship. Winning a championship is winning a championship. — Trey Burke

Winning Teams Quotes By Megan McCafferty

Hornergy' is Zen's term for the indomitable athletic edge powered by sexual restraint. The basketball, baseball and football teams haven't had a winning season in years. The table-tennis team, however, is undefeated. — Megan McCafferty

Winning Teams Quotes By Rodney Harrison

You can't depend on special teams touchdowns and blocked punts every week to win. — Rodney Harrison

Winning Teams Quotes By John Madden

One of the biggest gaps in sports is the difference between the winning and losing teams of the Super Bowl. They don't invite the losing team to the White House. They don't have parades for them. They don't throw confetti on them. — John Madden

Winning Teams Quotes By Sam Walton

Individuals don't win in business, teams do. — Sam Walton

Winning Teams Quotes By Peter Levitan

Practically every consultant, or 96% of the sample, pointed to "chemistry" as the key factor for winning. But what exactly is chemistry? Generally speaking it is simpatico between the client and agency teams. — Peter Levitan

Winning Teams Quotes By Karch Kiraly

We are all going to fall short. We are going to have some bitter losses, very painful defeats and failures. We have to use those to come back even stronger. That's what makes it sweeter, when we can overcome those and figure out a way to win. The great teams can do that, and those are the gold medal winning teams. — Karch Kiraly

Winning Teams Quotes By Stephen Covey

Listen, involve, synergize at work. Then you will bury the old and create an entirely new winning culture which will unleash people's talents and create complementary teams where strengths are made productive and weakness are made irrelevant through the strengths of others. — Stephen Covey

Winning Teams Quotes By Steve Yzerman

We have to get better at that. All of the Stanley Cup winning teams throughout the past few seasons, when they needed to play defense, they did it. If you can play defense, that's when you know it's game over. — Steve Yzerman

Winning Teams Quotes By John Wooden

Our titles would not have been possible without the unselfishness displayed by all our teams, the team wins, not the individuals — John Wooden

Winning Teams Quotes By Margaret Peterson Haddix

Because," he said in an even voice, "you're used to winning, so you don't even think about how, every time there's a game, both sides get that 'rah, rah, team' speech from their coaches both sides hear 'you're the best!' 'You've got to win!' 'You're the greatest!' But half of the people playing that game are going to walk away losers. Half! — Margaret Peterson Haddix

Winning Teams Quotes By John Calipari

winning. — John Calipari

Winning Teams Quotes By Willie McGinest

Winning Teams Quotes By David Pleat

Eighty per cent of teams who score first in matches go on to win them. But they may draw some - or occasionally lose. — David Pleat

Winning Teams Quotes By Tex Winter

I think there's an awful lot of ball players with great skills, but whether or not they're going to be on winning teams is not going to be answered until you see how they fit in to a team or a program. If they don't, it may be their fault or it may be their coaches. — Tex Winter

Winning Teams Quotes By Ryan Zimmerman

A lot of teams aren't going to let me beat them. I just try to do something each game to help us win. If you do something like that, whether it's a walk or a hit, your numbers will be there by the end of the year. — Ryan Zimmerman

Winning Teams Quotes By Nate McMillan

It's a reality here. We're a team that at this time of the season, with teams trying to get to the playoffs, it's going to be difficult to win. — Nate McMillan

Winning Teams Quotes By Steven Gerrard

Earlier on in the season I'd have been very surprised to think we could win this competition because there were some fantastic teams in it.
(on the Champions League) — Steven Gerrard

Winning Teams Quotes By Bill Parcells

Individuals play the game, but teams win championships. — Bill Parcells

Winning Teams Quotes By Takeo Spikes

Winning Teams Quotes By John C. Maxwell

Fellas, things are going to change. I know how bad DeMatha's teams have been during these last few years, but that's over with. We're going to win at DeMatha and we're going to build a tradition of winning. Starting right now ... But let me tell you how we're going to do it. We're going to outwork every team we ever play ... With a lot of hard work and discipline and dedication, people are going to hear about us and respect us, because DeMatha will be a winner. — John C. Maxwell

Winning Teams Quotes By Don Yaeger

Most coaches would consider leading a team to an Olympic gold medal a capper for a pretty good year. The same goes for winning an NCAA national championship. Or a FIBA world championship. Mike Krzyzewski, head coach of the Duke Blue Devils and Team USA, led teams to each of these honors ... within about 24 months. — Don Yaeger
