At this point you must give Tai credit he knew how he needed to play and he did it and i shook his hand and told him smart playing and it was .
Don't get me wrong, I'm certainly not making excuses for him. Not having been there, mine is just an observation on paper. The best thing I'm hearing from you is it appears you're viewing the experience from a much clearer lens and most of all learning from it. That will make him a better player tomorrow and that's a great take away from the week.
Good to see you and TCF are settling down the vitriol.
