typical jargon

Talking about the Ti-cat's D:

'We lost some key players. We have some good competition for the roster spots. There are some good young guys that can step it up'.

I hear this all the time. How come I never hear anything like this.

'We lost some key players. Now, we are toast. The guys trying to fill the spot are useless. We should bring back the tsn analyst crew out of retirement'.

you never hear stuff like that because people are stupidly hoping that their new players will be better somehow then their old stars... plus no one wants to admit defeat before the game starts... GO LIOS
