Tank Nation UNITE!!!
« on: January 20, 2015, 06:29:27 PM »
The current leafs team SUCKS! I have joined the tank nation. I encourage all of you to join me. I can no longer support this team until they make major changes and hopefully get a top 5 pick in the draft.

Some of you are saying that the current stretch has been due to bad luck but I day bollocks to all of that nonsense.

TANK NATION UNITE!!!

I miss Bill Watters. :(

Come on in... we're drinking beer in a burned out 18-wheeler... down by the river (Chris Farley, not Neil Young).

I was squarely on the side of tank nation last year.  We could have been bad enough to get a top 3 pick had the gutting happened during the last offseason.

I never root for a loss in any given game, can't do it.  But in the larger context, I hope for a great measure of tank.

It's time to gut this sucker and let the entrails sink to the bottom of the pond.

Agreed. I hope they can simultaneously win and lose every game.

As much as this team annoys me, I can never root for them to lose.

The concept is just ridiculous to me.

And even if the Leafs did manage to finish dead last, I guarantee that they wouldn't win the lottery.

In this situation the Leafs would still get the best prospect that they've ever had.

You know who their last 1000GP in the NHL draft pick was....Tie Domi in 1988.
Their last 1000 point NHL draft pick...Vicent Damphouse in 1986...and then Lanny MacDonald in 1973....and then Darryl Sittler in 1970.  Three 1000 point players drafted by the Leafs in the history of the modern NHL draft.

The Leafs career drafting record is pretty pathetic.  The Leafs have been the perfect combination of not successful and not bad enough to draft a superstar.

I'm all for the Leafs trying hard and coming up short in games but you won't get me rooting for losses either.  Not getting upset at failed comebacks is another thing though.  I'm perfectly ok with that.

Well as someone on the radio pointed out, in their history, the Leafs have never had the best player at a position in their history.  Not saying that they have too, but it would be nice if they could get a player, and as fans we could say that guy is the best (c,lw,rw,d,g) in the game today.

I guess I consider myself a tanker, but I'm not really actively cheering on the other teams. And I don't get upset when the Leafs score or something. I'm just as happy seeing them lose as I am seeing them win.

So when we unite, do we make a sound like in the transformers when Devastator united, or is there a catchphrase like "Go, go shoddy defence", maybe a totally uncoordinated gang sign?  Just wondering.
