Precisely, and the past includes all bad moves made as well. Thus, we analyze them, not sugarcoat.

I think I would agree with DUH, it seems any criticism goes in one ear and out the other. No one is saying we are not thankful where we are at, that doesn't negate glaring moves that literally no fan would agree with. I don't see how being a critical fan necessarily is a negative fan. Interesting though, we condemn other fanbases for trying to paint rosier pictures of their franchises, yet criticism here is relative to questioning a sense of patriotism.

I suppose even the Flyers board needs its equilibrium of Lennon and McCartney...otherwise we'd be far too sappy or depressed.
