fine..but i have 200 pages left to read of journals before tomorrow, dammit.
when your best player is injured and half of your roster is d-leaguers yes.
let's for instance say Drew goes down in week 3. he's out for at least 6-8 weeks. the defense is full of "d-leaguers." you think the Saints have a chance to go anywhere? no. so by a "tanker's" logic, it would be OK to start tanking at that point. just lose out, right?
that's the biggest flaw in the logic. but like I said, at the base of that logic is that tanking is OK.
i get that the two playoffs systems are completely different though and that tanking would make more sense in the NBA.
