True Hoop: Tanking hurts fans

As you can tell by the title, this is another artcle regarding an ongoing topic on TrueHoop (and Bedge, as well as other sites). There are some very interesting quotes in the article. This one is particularly interesting to me since I made a similar point in one of the previous tanking threads (of course i wasn't taken seriously, but what else is new) . "It's utter misery. On a deeper level, I wonder if it's conditioning me further, perhaps subconsciously. Have I become more cynical? Less hopeful? More at risk for depression?" And this one too is a point I have repeatedly made on the subject "But as Strauss and Swanson can testify, tanking is heartbreaking -- and it offers no guarantees that things will get better."
