It's called the strawmen argument Rummy!Rumsfeld wrote: I haven't seen a lot of bedwetting. With a few exceptions I've seen people pointing out the obvious, which is that we've been playing poorly for a quarter of a season. Obviously, fans being fans, there is some frustration there. I think there is pretty much universal opinion on the board that we are much better than we're playing, but I guess being smug and imagining you're on an island of rationality amidst a sea of craziness makes you feel better, even if it's completely invented on your part.
If fans show any concern about Canuck performance.... well they're wetting the bed.
If fans say Canucks need more toughness... well they're sayin they want 3 goons in the Top 6.
The Great Strangelove predicted (in the Predictions Thread) that your Canucks would be in 11th at Xmas.Rumsfeld wrote: The team is sucking. Obviously they should improve, but I'm pretty damn sure you didn't have them pencilled in for 11th place after 19 games.
The Great Strangelove is not bragging because the Great Strangelove knows it's not Xmas yet.
The Great Strangelove is just trying to interact socially.

Coco, Pots, y'know I love you guys, but SOMEONE had to say it!
