It's actually the other way around. SSS proclaims that actually signing a big time FA will doom the team for years to come.



but only after we fail to sign that free agent that they insisted we were going to sign

The only thing I've gotten out this LoD navel-gazing is that MDS apparently needs to eat more roughage.

Both camps were created just to poke a little fun. Some of us who can laugh at ourselves a little bit play it to the hilt. Some people get the joke, some people don't.

But, really, we're all huge Nats/baseball fans or we wouldn't be spending so much time on here. I've never questioned the loyalty of the LoD to the Nats. They obviously care and that passion shows.

Nah, it all depends on the FA. For example, we were all in on the Werth signing.

Good point.  :clap:

LoD can't accept the concepts of building, prospects, improvement over time.

Any time a reference is made to the team being built to contend, the LoD comes with [year + 2] function joke.

The failure to sign free agent X dooms this team to years of failure.

Hope is gullibility and acceptance of the current team leadership.

When the Nats do sign a free agent, it is just what is to be expected and not a sign that the management may have a plan on how to build a team. 

Sanity. If the SSS had a leader, it would be JCA. But of course the world of unicorns and rainbows knows only true equality and no leaders are required.

Lerner said he doesn’t know or care how valuable the Nationals are. “It’s not something we’re ever going to get rid of,” he said.

Guild of Independent Nats Fans United. For people who consider themselves neither to be Sunshine Squadders nor Legionnaires of Doom.

That sounds more like me.

I'd like it if people just treated each other like individuals with opinions instead of instantly resorting to generalizations based on labels that were supposed to be jokes in the first place, but WTF do I know, I'm just a dinosaur in a trashcan.

I agree with this too. I've noticed both LoD and SSS members complaining about their counterparts not understanding their principles yet just from my questioning here it seems that members can't agree with each other on what their principles are  :?

People can't even agree on what they disagree on anymore, it's just a reflection of the American people as a whole.
