Lol, but when we look at Columbus it's a completely different story. We look at them and say, "Wow, even with no spending limitations you can still suck!!". They definitely should not be pointing fingers because we are the cripple, they are the leper with pieces of flesh falling off.

In terms of forwards and offensive talent few players are "Can't Miss". Even in the case of Nino in spite of his juniors success the jury is still out as a pro. I think defense is more teachable so they are a safer commodity for an organization.
