    Thoughts ?



    I personally hate them, they are stupid, egotistical, ugly looking and act all superior despite playing some odd tactics or just being very lucky..and then making sure everyone knows it..

    They grew on me during the season. I didn't like them at first but then they calmed down a little and other teams became more obnoxious.

    I don't like them but compared to the Doctors they seem not as bad.

    Despise them, but to be honest, Jamal is likeable enough. Leo is extremely obnoxsious though.

    I agree they are obnoxious, but I feel the "afghanimal" term is racist. If you believe the spoiler though, they will be back next season in the all-stars.

    yeah not racist if they use the term themselves lol


    as for the nel saving them (for now)


    it is odd/funny/ almost suspicious when a team people hate come in last on an nel.


    and of course they soon self destruct, obnoxious people are so nasty and cruel when they don't get their way..

    I'm glad to see somebody besides me finally voted like. I don't love them, but I really am not a fan of any team this season and they are my pick in the TAR Pool and getting me a lot of points.
