    Leaning your way, this continued sitting out so many guys sucks, in this draft the 4-5-6-7 spots frankly appear of little difference and it's even more of a guess than usual

    Whether there is a large difference or not in prospects from 4-7, it is still always better to be picking at 4, and getting the guy you want versus picking at 7 and getting the leftovers.

    If they get serious and bring in a legit coach at some point I'll start caring a bit more. Until then, I'm just glad Mike Schmitz is there.

    My point is you imitate the genius and perhaps get close to them or get lucky.

    Yeah, I'm not so much trying to argue with you, just expressing my frustration.

    To be honest, I think most posters here are expressing frustration is some form. All is valid in the long run. Despite wanting to be the GM, i'm not. Just here for the ride since 1970.

    On positive note........maybe game tickets and merchandise prices fall below can't give it away. Good time to buy now for next year's wear& revival.

    There are like 8 teams in the league with a longer title appearance drought than us. This franchise should get a turn, just by random chance.

    First you have to try to win games. Then you have to win enough of them to make the playoffs.
    You don’t get a random chance without making the playoffs.

    Buys Joe & Chauncey a few years if they continue to tank this and next year. The four years of rebuilding. Hopefully we have players that really pop and the draft is very good to us.

    That sucks! I guess when they are the only game in town we consumers will always land on Park Ave or go straight to inflation jail.
