Flames don’t suck, YOU (the Gauntlet) suck

I can’t believe the way you’ve slagged our beloved hometown heroes, the Flames.

Maybe Mr. Osentоn doesn’t realize that a team worthy of greatness can’t be built over night. It takes time and vigilance, not to mention some shrewd behind the scene moves.

Yes, the players are still a little wet behind the ears, and there is much room for improvement, they’ve been drafting horribly, and on and on and on. But I’d bet dollars to donuts that one of these days they’ll come out and do something magnificent–that is we give them half a chance to show it. They have the passion again, I can feel it.
