Well, let's break down some of the things ole Bob said:
"the Penguins have eclipsed the Pirates as the city's worst franchise."
Depends what you mean "worst"...is 13 years without the playoffs worse than 4 years near the bottom of the league?
"Truth be known, for sheer incompetence the Pirates can't match the Penguins."
Ummm....no Bob....the Pirates have had 13 season to turn it around...and they haevn't.
"What's more, every year they (the Pens) get worse."
Ahh...yeah Bob, it's called not being able to compete cause of no salary cap...thhis year, yes, I can agree, the Pens management was 90% to blame.
"Like the Pirates, the Penguins have become superb in building up the hopes of fans with bogus prospects."
Except for this season...how so Bob? We knew they would lose until a salary cap was in place at the very least....how did in the previous years, we "build up" expectations?
"When it comes to building a team, the Penguins are clueless."
And the Pirates aren't Bob?
