I know we're struggling this year, but the "we suck!!!! nobody will come here anymore!!!!" mentality is rather annoying.
There are a lot of other teams that can point to having NHL draft picks on their roster.

The 6000 fans hasn't really panned out the past 2 years.

Like Otto said it was years ago those the kids you're bringing in now when they Spits were good were at the age of 9 and 10.

It's not the struggling part it's the fact there isn't accountability amongst the players, they come out with what can be characterized as a laissez faire attitude. Even against Sarnia they played well but took for granted Sarnia was settling for OT.

What's annoying is that the players are being blamed for everything but it's time to look at management and coaching. There's an old saying if the student has learned the teacher hasn't taught. I don't see these students/players learning much.
