Or merely acknowledging the additional hurdle involved during the streak. I get the latter, however I just get the feel when I read it that it's stage setting
I think we have all accepted our fate that this is the last year with TB. I really think that the travelling can't be the reason for leaving because of what this team has done this year - you can't say the travel has had ANY effect on the development or play of our players - especially the rookies. There's more to the story than what TB wants to publicly put out there.
It's a shame because we have stood behind this organization for 5 years. It's not like the travel has just become an issue - it's been an issue since the team has been in Norfolk so whoever comes in after TB will have to deal with it also. Just wish TB could have been more honest with us fans and put it out there when the rumors started instead of keeping us hanging on. (And please don't make the comment that they don't owe the fans anything, we've heard it already!)
Also - just think about it TB fans that don't think we have a right to be upset about the situation - how would you feel if the Bolts were on the verge of playing for the Stanley Cup and you started hearing that they were going to move to another city and you were going to get a team like Columbus to replace them -you would be upset too!
