Adrian Dater has lost his mind. His latest 'article' in the Denver Post appears to be an advice column to the Avalanche management.
We really suck as a team but just not enough to get the #1 pick. What should we do?
Desperately Seeking "The One"
Frankly I think he just trying to get a little more action on the sports page. Because lets face it. You can make a definite link as follows; Avs losing = less interest in the team = less people reading about the team in the local paper. So...did Dater's boss tell him to write an inflammatory piece to get the attention of the faithful? Even if FG or TG told the guys to tank it, how many do you really think are going to go out there and try as hard to lose, as they do to win? Men that play hockey do not reach this level of competition with that sort of mentality. Impossible.Sports blog "Mile High Hockey" is also guilty of consorting with many advocates of losing. It is really rather disturbing to see so many fans of the Colorado Avalanche lose their way! Do they want to the Avs to be like other permanent losers?
If you advocate losing, your reality will meet your expectations. And then you think you can go back to a winning mentality like flipping on a light switch?
No, I have my doubts.
Would I like to see Tavares here? Sure. But this is loser talk is NOT acceptable.
