Though, I'm pretty sure you were there, Rayzor, back in September.

As for our bet - you were so hung up over the last one we never got a chance to make a bet for this. If you wanted to collect on the last one, you know where to find me. My apologies if the ONE time you actually come to collect, in five months, I was at work, where I couldn't pay up That said, I'm willing to bet on this one......if you are.

I don't know that the team has mailed it in, either. They were giving it their all out there last night and were very close in shots. They just couldn't solve Paterson. The Rychel penalty late in the third probably killed any momentum or confidence they had to tie it up, though.
I take no pride in being right that this team would struggle. I think a good portion of fans thought they would be up against it when Koko went home and Rychel struck out in the import draft. Their poor road record, their poor goal differential, the lack of solid 19/20 year olds, the lack of preparation and poor discipline this all goes into the equation of why this team struggled.

It's a wise move that you didn't pay up because after this weekend it was a back breaker. I care how the team does but it's not worth any type of real investment at this point. I still think making the playoffs last year gave this organization a false sense of achievement hence why you saw very little movement from them in the offseason. They actually thought they had something but they really didn't have much.

Last night the game was summed up in the 1st minute when they gave up a breakaway to Locke and a few seconds later Ross put the Spirit up 1-0. This was just another time when the team gave up a goal in the 1st minute of a period which shows a lack of preparation.
