In order to do that you either need to spend money or spend the budgeted money you have smartly. right now isles arent doing either of those.

I know we are all frustrated and didn't mean to come off as nasty in my reponse to you. I will ALWAYS root for the Isles no matter what, but I am also as a fan allowed to voice my displeasure. You and others may not agree, but I know A LOT of fans that feel the same way. I feel like he is doing wrong by the players and the fans by not icing a winning team or heck even a team that can COMPETE NIGHTLY. I hope for everyone's sake that the spending starts this offseason. I don't think he can wait to get to BKLYN to start to spend.

I don't think I have unrealistic expectations. My expectations are to be able to root for a team that can compete and win. Thats what we all want as fans.
Thanks for the polite post. I already said how a better team would cost more and not bring in enough revenue not to lose money now and how some shouldn't expect gold from poverty so we'll just agree to disagree.

One day a new owner will be in Brooklyn and I'll be right with you with more realistc expectatons for the money.
