    Hahaha Monrovia fans are a funny bunch. OCat leads the way. “The break it prayed for” is pure comedy. The break they prayed for was made last January when coach Colman was hired and kept the ball rolling. You guys were completely dominated! Officiating wasn’t bad, there were mistakes made by both teams, early season mistakes. There were actually 3 players holding on the Cats first play from scrimmage (watch the film), the refs could only call one. Other than that, the Cats were completely shut down by what many thought was a rebuilding team and defense at Burbank. Like I said earlier, all the best on another RHL league title, but your arrogance leading up to this game was hilarious. Hope we continue with the contract to play you all again next season.

    @Mildones, LOL!!!! I hope for the sake of all Monrovia fans you are joking. You played at home with officials from your local area. If a referee keeps calling the same penalty, than either your coaches or players are to blame. Football isn’t for everyone, no matter the stereotype, you do actually have to have half a brain to play.

    Penalties? Refs? Sad!! Even insiders know by now that Monrovia ball is undisciplined ball thus they have always collected a ton of penalties. They play like kids bailing out of a stolen car. Running every which way hoping not to get caught. They always do, then they get fined and jailed.

    Thats actual really true, they called penalties left and right on the Wildcats for things they didnt do but hardly a couple to none on the Bulldogs. Is it a sign of favoritism or is it rigged. Not going to lie I played against them recent years and they a good team but Monrovia could easily tied it or Won without those calls they didnt do. I dont know if a lot of people saw but quite of few seen those cheap shots Burbank had done against Monrovia in front of the refs but yet they turn a blind eye, I believe they need to look at they game again because I believe there’s something going on beneath they eye.

    Doggystyle pathetically reposted old comments to hopefully make a point. How long did it take to track all those down? Pacific is going to eat you guys up and spit you out.

    I think you Burbank fans are missing some very important information from last season. Monrovia was without truthfully their entire starting set of receivers and DB’s Not to mention the QB situation at the begging of the game. So in essence you guys played a very young inexperienced Monrovia team made up of mainly Sophomores and Juniors including a few freshmen. This years squad is much more versed to go against Burbank and it showed by the end of last season the maturity of these kids. Monrovia’s Defense will be the key to the victory that may come as a shock to you. Our offense is very good and if given the chance they will come out swinging. Maury Rams and Michael will be the best offensive players from either team tomorrow night and both can play in the secondary as well. It should be a great game to watch, Monrovia will have some surprises for you as well. They will be as disciplined and more athletic than Burbank……

    Monrovia’s defense led by Javen Walker will frustrate Burbank and the Monrovia offense which will struggle moving the ball will win with explosive plays.

    Last Year: Burbank 33-7
    This isn’t the same Burbank team of a year ago. Many players from the team that advanced to the CIF Finals, were lost to graduation and the Bulldogs have a new coach as former quarterback Adam Colman has taken over. Monrovia, who was humbled last year by Burbank, may be out for a little pay back. They have some big time talent in Maury Rams IV, Michael Washington and Alfonso Castillo. The Wildcats also have the home field advantage. Add it all up and M-Town prevails.
    Monrovia 24 Burbank 14
    From T. Peterson: Yeah that was me. I missed it. I’ll be the first to admit it. Congrats Burbank. I’m happy HC Adam Colman won his debut.

    Time to move on. Monrovia has had bad starts in the past and was still posting in Dec. I believe this is going to be one of those years. Reality usually rears its head around the middle of the season. Burbank, you have a lot of maturing to do in order to win the pacific league so if this is what you believe makes you superior, goooood luck. I’m sure the real Bulldog fans are saying the same thing. This game could have gone either way but just so happened to give Burbank the break it prayed for. Monrovia will prevail and get better and better as the season moves ahead. The Cats will play teams that are much Better than Burbank in the next few weeks and we will compete as though Burbank never happened. See you in Dec.

    The refs and Monrovia gave you that game. You guys didn’t so sh** special. Endless penalties in crutial moments of the game. 2 touchdowns called back (Very questionable calls.) Plus Monrovia gave you the ball on the 1. Not like you guys were moving the ball at will. Humble up Burbank fans.

    The Chou hire was questionable to begin with. The AD and administration have let the community
    down. This was a program headed in the right direction under Maddox but he even bailed when he saw the
    talent base dwindling. The only chance Monrovia has is to move way down in divisions and start from
    scratch. Get rid of the old retred staff full of coaches who have no new technique to teach. Hire a
    younger more energetic staff who not only have credentials but can teach proper technique as well
    as attract talent to the program.

    Times are tough for the Cats. Chou was obviously the wrong hire but the problem doesn’t just lie
    with him. Your AD is pathetic. Bottom line is he had a chance to hire a young football mind.
    There was no shortage of applicants and this is the best you could come up with? This game has
    passed a lot of coaches better than this guy buy but your alumni and boosters have no power.
    That job should have been Anthony White’s but your administration is clueless and won’t adapt
    to the culture change. Hiring the same old guys from the past won’t help but I’ll give you a clue what
    will. Stop living in the past. If your not proactive in your next coaching hire this will continue and
    it’s going to get worse,
