I want that team to do its best. Which is why, as a passionate and supportive fan, I want to see a better management team in place, who can put the best team possible in the team's sweaters.
You are entitled to your view and I am entitled to mine with respect to Howson. But let's not start injecting this "tr00 fan" debate into the proceedings.
I don't see this as being the case at all. I see a centrist viewpoint that says that one single additional year is reasonable for a variety of reasons.
As far as "sending messages", winning games will send messages. People were staying away in droves during the 2008-09 season, then when it hit January and the team was still hanging around the top 8 in the conference, there began a string of sellouts that lasted all the way into the postseason. That was in Howson's second year, when he still had a good chunk of the team that was still carried over from MacLean.
