I think the tank thread got locked cuz it's too early. Maybe about 30 games in, the mods will let it be, lol.

One game into the season and you already want to declare defeat? That's like a boxer who throws in the towel after the first punch. What's the point in following a team if you root for them to lose right out of the gate? That's just messed up. Not to mention, how does anyone expect to attract those coveted free agents if the team doesn't show any signs of life? PLUS, even if we do tank, our chances of keeping our first round pick are next to zero.

Just wrong on so many levels.

Does that answer the question?

Please don't read too much into my post, guys. I know I have the tank in my sig still, but I don't necessarily believe that the thread shouldn't be locked.

I am merely asking for the reasoning behind its being locked.

I am also equally interested in the reasoning behind tonight's game thread being locked.

I didn't lock either. But I think the game thread was probably a mistake. Might have been accidentally locked instead of stickied. Fixed it.

The tank thread looks like there were a lot of complaints on the timing.
