Re: Postseason Scoreboard Watching
I don't know which is more pathetic, HometownHero working so hard to prove that the Cardinals have been lucky in the playoffs, or all the Cardinal fans trying to argue that they haven't been lucky.
Teams get lucky and unlucky in the playoffs, happens every year. That's why what happens in the playoffs isn't as important as what happens in the regular season. And this is true in every sport.
Does anyone think that the NY Giants deserved to be Champions of the NFL? Everyone knows that the Packers were the best team last season, but they got unlucky in the playoffs.
In LeBron's first season with the Heat, everyone knew they were the best team in the NBA, even when they didn't win the Championship.
I'd come up with the same thing about Hockey, but does anyone even care about it at all?
No need to argue that the Cards were lucky to get into the playoffs these last two years and lucky to doing well in them. The Reds are a better team and organization than the Cardinals and will be for years, if not decades to come. The regular season proved that. Whatever happens in the playoffs will never change that fact.
