I didn't say there were never any down years, or that there never will be again. Having occasional down years (by UK standards) doesn't mean anything is "coming to an end". The Yankee dynasty doesn't come to an end because they go a few years without a WS title, and neither does the Kentucky basketball dynasty. It was built over time and it will stand the test of time. That's not wearing blinders, it's making a case based on available data. You can say the good times are coming to an end, but you have no evidence that supports that opinion. It's just wishful thinking.
