Anyone can support a team when it is winning, that takes no courage.
But to stand behind a team, to defend a team when it is down and really needs you,
that takes a lot of courage.

Its cunning team selection by Josie to ensure that some different player other than SoL is the butt of the fans anger for wasting a place on the plane.
She slipped up however in dropping Hankinson because I agree with everything she said about him last week.
