As Roadman put it, having that as the result is fine, but having it as the goal is still despicable.


And I'm going to reiterate this again 'cause folks keep missing it: This is not about somehow already having respect and not wanting to lose it. That's a strawman. We do not have respect. We are trying to GAIN respect for once, and you do not GAIN respect if you get there via cheapass shortcuts that everybody despises.
Can you please show me a player/coach/gm/president who is taking "cheapass shortcuts"?

This team lacks the skill to put up W' s let alone multiple W's in a row. So anything that happens whether it's trading Brassard, Umberger, Wiz or even JMFJ isn't an attempt to tank for the best pick its an attempt to retool for next season. The end result of which has a possibility of drafting top 3-5
