Most of the time I disagree with Mooseduck's rose colored outlook on all things Ducks. He's like our own Chicago Cubs fan from 10 years ago, always proclaiming that this will be our year....and then when all hope is lost.....it becomes NEXT Year Is Our Year!! There's nothing wrong with optimism, and he has that right, and his pro Ducks stance is certainly welcome here.
I sometimes listen to Roger Lodge on AM 830, and on Monday he spent most of his show asking whether it was time to say the Angels won't make the playoffs this season. Gee.....I don't know....they're only about 13 Games out of the 2nd Wild Card spot with a month to go. But he's a homer, hired by the flagship station to drive up enthusiasm even when there's zero chance of changing the inevitable.
I expect to come here in November, when the Ducks have single digits in points, and see Mooseduck posting about how it's still possible to turn things around. Heck, he even eventually jumped onboard the Dump Carlyle bandwagon last season.
We've been season seat holders since Day 1, so we're always pulling for the Ducks to excel. But honestly, after the 2017-18 Season, and especially after the 2018-19 Season, I have seen no effort from Ownership or Management to make me think anything other than the team is merely going through the motions. I have very low expectations for the upcoming season, and I just don't see how we intend to keep up with some of the other clubs that have improved their rosters over the past couple of years. I really foresee another sub-90 point result, but hope that I'm wrong.
