Hi all.

I am sure you have seen the post about Shakespeare in the news, and have noticed the change of the background already.


Source: https://redzoneaction.org/football/images/media/c253e141f03a61760ab75ebc4dcfc0b9.jpg


Today, we start a small challenge. There are many many famous quotes from Shakespeare, like "To be or not to be, that is the question". Now, it is on you to come up with a translation of these quotes into RZA-terms. Ready?

Since we have a true dictatorship, Captain Jack and me will pick a winner of the best translation, and the winner will receive a 3 months supporter option. The runner-up receives 50 Credits.

We do not care if you come with something really funny, or a true deep thought...as long as you keep the original quote intact, and there is any evidence it was from this great man called Shakespeare!

Examples?

To be or not to be - So, are you going to retire next season or what?

Hell is empty, and all the devils are here - Shakespeares take on RZA Elite league

Now, have fun. Competition is running until 30th of April 2016, 10 pm servertime.

As today is ' the big day' I'm going on a walk (in London) - there will be a 10 minute video from each of 37 plays.

However, this walk is also taking place in Spain, Poland and Egypt

Also just to add another Shakespeare quote example:

Now is the winter of our discontent - Looks like we've failed to make the playoffs again this season!

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;

Blitz the MLB again if he's insisting on using his backup squishies as interior lineman!

Original:
Love all, trust a few, do wrong to none.

RZA:
Respect the players, trust your teammates and for god sake don't commit a foul (or we will get a penalty ...)

Shakespeare "Richard III"
"A horse, a horse ! My kingdom for a horse !"

(Very) personal interpretation :
Joan of Arc's ring returned to France.

Wisely, and slow. They stumble that run fast.

It takes time to build your team properly.

"This above all: to thine own self be true"

Do not always listen to the "group think" in the forums. They can be wrong plus they never want you to become better than them. Run your team your way.

"Do you think I am easier to be played on than a pipe?"

In RL this is a good ladies comeback to a cheesy pick up line. In RZA a great email to a coach that you just upset when you were a 20 point dog on Beckos.

"A horse! a horse! my kingdom for a horse!"

All those bidding on Pete's easter eggs.

"Never play with the feelings of others. Because you may win the game but the risk is that you will surely lose the person for a life time”

Regarding caps and the transfer market, if you lie about the caps of a player you are selling, like a scandal a few seasons ago, the person you cheat will never buy from you again and you will lose your credibility.

"We know what we are, but know not what we may be."

When training youth academy or draft players the ever looming question of when thee physicals perchance may cap. Knowing when the physicals will cap being the most important determinant of player position.

"Oft expectation fails, and most oft there where most it promises."

Expectation is the root of all heartache, when we unexpectedly lose an important game or a draft player caps way sooner than expected, tis no more sullen feeling.
