“PLAYING ANGRY” VS. “BEING ANGRY.”

Posted on: April 1, 2013

As anyone who reads my column knows, I believe that when you get angry during sports competition and in life itself, you give away your power. Anger in any form is never good and never constructive. So you can imagine my initial reaction when I read that the Wichita State Men’s Basketball Coach Gregg Marshall encourages his players to “play angry” and has had a great deal of success with that, especially now that they are in the final four. But on closer examination, you’ll notice that Coach Marshall doesn’t encourage his players to “be angry” or “get angry” but rather just “play angry.” And there is a difference. Athletes who are angry during competition absolutely give away their power and are seldom successful. And generally, the anger is misdirected since more than likely they’ve neglected to resolve an important issue in their lives but rather have allowed the issue to fester and surface in other ways.
