#therightway comes off as pure chest pounding with 100% seriousness. I understand why the players do it, but there is a big difference between how a player approaches the game, and how a fan does. It sort of worked last year when we were a scrappy bubble team, but it still seemed like we were trying very hard to look cool. This approach basically reeks of insecurity IMO.
We have a very good team with a lot of great qualities to showcase, but I think the Aliens theme is a way more charming way to convey this and it also goes hand in hand with the fact that we are a surprise team.
I don't see how it's serious and chest pounding when the players tweet about it basically as a joke. They're not tweeting about it seriously. Regardless it's not a huge deal as it's an avatar, no reason for everyone to go nuts over it lol. I've just soured on meme's of late since everyone's doing it now and they've just become overused. #therightway to me is something that is unique and something that comes straight from the team.
