Henry weighs in with a very long piece. He hits some of the same threads I have about tanking (the strategy...not the losing mentality part of it). Essentially the idea that once you give into losing ....it is difficult ..really difficult...to get out.
Here are a few quotes
"Tanking, as a way to get good, is not tried and true. It is tried and tried and tried and tried and once-in-a-long-while kind of true."
and this this nugget on getting back out of the losing quick sand
"Does more time help? Not much. Win 34 games or fewer in any season, according to Arturo Galletti at The Wages of Wins, and over the next decade your chances of winning more than 55 are abysmal, at just 12 percent."
Ok ...the usual suspects are now welcome to rip into me for the 4th or 5th time
