    This has been one hell of a ride this season, in the worst way possible. Have we finally hit rock bottom?

    Anyway, I haven't worn any Sens gear, from hats to jerseys to even a t-shirt, in months, out of sheer embarrassment over how this organization is managed. How about you?

    Ive said it before the latest round of **** and ill say it again.. if this all leads to no sale and Karlsson traded , im done.

    At present in still dialed in obviously, but I'm almost to the point where I hope Karlsson walks after next year, flipping off the owners box in his final home game and leaves the org with nothing but a smoking pile of ash.

    Hmmm I haven’t thought about it too much since it’s the off-season I guess. I still wear my Sens hat out and about so I guess not. They are definitely embarrassing themselves though.

    On these boards I remember getting chastised for using the word “we” when talking about the Senators. So I guess since I’m not part of the team or organization then I don’t need to be embarrassed? I wonder how the person who chastised me feels.

    Yes, I am embarrassed. And really disappointed in the lack of professionalism from the top. We lost Bryan Murray and everything has fallen apart.

    Hard not to be. We're the joke of the league.

    Best player and face of the franchise is about to be traded after refusing to sign an extension
    One of our best forwards is going to be dealt for far less than he's worth because of off-ice issues
    About to finish at the bottom of the standings for a second straight season, with no 1st next year.

    Going to be a rough ride for awhile. Think what Oilers fans went through from 2009-2015.

    I miss the days when the embarrassment was limited to the on ice product.

    I thought that at many points during the past few months, and I always ended up being wrong... I’m keeping my expectations low and saying there’s probably more controversy surrounding the organization still to come.

    No and I never will be.

    But I am furious at the organization in control of the team. And I will fight in my own small way to change things and make it known that although I am a loyal fan I am not a loyal customer.

    Nah...

    I think the most embarrassing time for me was that game in WIN in November, then the trip out to California right after.

    There's a lot of crap swirling around, but I can't get angry or ashamed of stuff that hasn't happened yet.

    The AGM allegedly invading another man's personal space, a puck bunny allegedly being over the top (criminally) catty, nothing that "the team" could have done anything about.

    No.

    I wouldn't say I was ever "proud" to be a fan of the Senators either. I strongly enjoy watching and following hockey, but I don't think it's healthy to make something you can't control that kind of piece of your identity.

    I'm disappointed that the team is awful, and seems to be followed by these terrible events. But I think that's way different than being embarrassed.

    Fairly embarrassed.... Still love the team but man have we ever fallen apart. Karlsson will be traded, Hoffman will be traded and Mark Stone will be the next captain.

    Owner GM AGM Hoffman need to go for this team to get back to respectability. Nothing less than that will do.

    Not embarrassed but like... for instance, today I was going to wear a Sens golf shirt to work, but ended up changing my mind and wearing something else.

    When all of the news surrounding the team is as bad as it's been over the past couple of months, I don't really like to invite more conversation about it among non-Sens fans than I have to. It's just draining.

    It's not embarrassment, just tired of it being one bad thing after another. I'm more fatigued with how bad this org is right now than I am embarrassed by it.

    I'm bemused, its a sports team after all. I'm much more embarrassed that Trump is my President.

    Embarrassed? Nope, I still wear my Sens hat proudly wherever I go. I'm more disgusted at ownership and the organization as a whole. It is a complete joke and absolutely does not represent what any fans envisioned the Sens would be even just a few years ago. Things weren't always like this. We used to have a reliably good team year in and year out, that would make the playoffs and sell out games. But years of mismanagement of the team and its players, and an owner more interested in nickel and diming its fans/players, is exactly what brought us here.

    Why would I be embarrassed for something I couldn't possibly have any responsibility in for happening?

    We don't have any responsibility in what happens, but we do make the conscious decision to be a fan of and support the organization.

    I love this city and I used to be season ticket holder, but I am seriously considering jumping ship and just following the league in general.
