What you did prior to getting your tank on is irrelevant. The way the game is designed prevents someone who's giving effort to win from losing 100+ for consecutive seasons. You cut payroll, lost a bunch, collected high picks, signed big money IFA and, surprise, surprise, you started winning 3-4 seasons later. That's EXACTLY how tanking works. Regardless of what you believe "in your heart", you tanked it up for a real life year. Which, I admit, takes more patience than I have. Congrats on your tainted WS titles.
