Please don't bring out the media's tired excuse of "the fans won't tolerate a rebuild". The fans tolerated 7 years of suckage between 1998 and 2004, but our management did everything in its power to ensure that we didn't suck enough to get a high draft pick (except for 99, which with our typical luck was one of the worst drafts in recent memory).

Fans of any team want to feel like the team is moving in a positive direction, whether they are last in the league or first.
