We are all fans here and as fans you cant clearly look at things objectively , we are too swayed my emotions. For instance, i knew very little about Sean Courterier before we drafted him, now im convinced he will be a 100 pt selke finalist center. WHy? Casue im excited about having a young talented player to cheer for and when i envision his future with the team i only envision it as its highest potential,something most people on this board do as well. So allow us "fans" the sense of some optimism and try not to bring us, or this board down.
You can be a fan without being a homer. You can be a fan without sacrificing your ability to say stupid things that aren't based in reality.
