When the Thrashers moved, former Atlanta Flames goalie Dan Bouchard came up with the perfect phrase to describe management that captures the type of team I want to root for. About the former Thrashers management, he said "the goodwill to put together a winner was never there."
I've always seen bandwagon hoppers as people who want to "root" for a team that they've already been told is good enough to win. On the other hand, though, it's stupid to root for ownership that isn't putting in a goodwill effort to be a winner. Some teams are lovable underdogs because they're hard on their luck or because they used to have bad ownership, but the Bengals just suck seemingly on purpose. Where's the fun in that?
Detroit seems to be putting something good together. One thing's for sure: if Suh & Fairley play up to their POTENTIAL, damn would I not want to run the ball on them.
