Quick possessive question

    My question is if this is correct: the players' mindset.

    Can I leave it like this or does mindset need to be plural because I'm talking about more than one player. For some reason I couldn't decide on this one. Thanks all.

    are you referring to what you perceive to be the collective mindset of the team or to each player's individual mindset?

    This is the sentence: "...," Larson said, adding that game cancellations early in the season didn't help his players' mindset either.

    you're OK that way.

    But on another subject:
    Cancellations or postponements? If the games are rescheduled they are postponements, not cancellations.

    The coach referred to them as cancellations. And many of them never were made up. Thanks though, spnited. Good catch.
