JI Soccer Draft Coping Thread
The 5 stages of losing the JI Soccer Forum Draft:
1. Denial and Isolation.
At first, we tend to deny the loss has taken place, and may withdraw from our usual JI posting. This stage may last a few moments, or longer. Time to hang out in the Hampur for awhile…
The losing GM may then be furious at the other GMs who did not vote for them (even if the others also received no votes), or at the entire JI world, for letting it happen. “You F-----G simpletons can’t understand my genius!” He may be angry with himself for taking part in the draft, even if, realistically, he had no chance of winning it.
Now the losing GM may make bargains with the other GMs, asking, "If I change my formation, or subs, will you vote for my team?"
The person feels numb, although anger and sadness may remain underneath.
This is when the anger, sadness and mourning have tapered off. The GM simply accepts the reality of the loss and resigns to the Hotties forum for a good coping fap(s).
