And look at all those players that left: they all left when this team was a loser (also what does that tell you about their abilities to lead a team as franchise players?). We can actually debate that we've never had a real keeper. In hindsight, Tmac was probably the best player to lace em up, but who really cares.
Tough to debate that (that we've never had a keeper) IMO.... we've definitely had all-stars... just have never really had a solid team around them.
The one exception was when we had Vince and Tracy here a the supporting cast wasn't too bad. THAT team could have been something.... but T-Mac fucked it up because he wanted to "be the man". Bet he wishes he swallowed his pride a bit now eh?
