    Hello everyone. The problem with the team is they have no motivation. They don’t have passion. Also their coach isn’t very good. Anyways have a great day!

    It’ll be worth it if they win. Remember when Nate was imaging baseballs as Godfrey heads and he was motivated to hit them?

    What if everyone had to pretend the ball is a cat? Then Nate would run away from the ball like Cinderella..

    This reminds me of the strip where Coach John said he stole Nate’s Cheez Doodles as a motivation tactic and Nate slammed him on the floor.

    Oh, I get! It’s because Chad likes food and that’s all there is to his character! Such brilliant phenomenal comedic writing! There’s no way anyone else could have come up with something as genius as this!

    Alternative ending: Instead of Chad bringing up food, Nate would have the ball (the ‘comic book’), but Francis views the ball as his cat. The end result is them tugging at the ball vigorously for their ‘comic book’ and ‘cat’ until a referee steps in

    Different things motivate different people. It IS part of the coaches job to figure out how to get the best out of each of his players…..

    All jokes aside, I think Chad in this strip shows how watered-down the characters have gotten. For example, Nate is the egotistical jerk who sucks at sports, Chad is the fat kid who makes potty jokes, and Francis is the nerd. Back in the day, Nate had a passion for cartooning, painting, and even chess and made a band. This made him feel more human, rather than a way to make stale jokes. Francis was clearly shown as Nate’s friend, and supported Nate despite their differences, which made him less annoying. I get this is a children’s strip, but comics like Peanuts have shown that strips made for kids can have interesting characters. For example, Lucy can be the stereotypical bully, but her love for Schroeder and Rerun showed that she had a soft side, once again making her less like a stereotypical bully and more like a misguided child.

    Also, for people saying that “why would Francis hit his cat with a bat”, look at the first panel. They are running and wearing cleats so their playing soccer not baseball
