    Totally embarrassed, but it's kind of funny at the same time that things have got this low. Used to be a very classy team back in the day with solid management and players. I would love to jump ship, but I've invested 25 years in this team and as much as I explore the idea of cheering for another fanbase...I just could never do it. That being said over the past 4 or 5 years I've maybe liked 40% of our roster players.

    Not really. I'm just numb to the drama right now. It's borderline funny, really.

    At the end of the day, we'll have a team on the ice next season, we have some good young talent to look forward to, and I'm very confident we'll finish higher than we did last season (it'll be really hard not to).

    Nah, I’d probably be embarrassed if I actually still spent money on this team.

    It’s my lowest point as a Sens fan.

    Yup.

    It's odd because so many good things are happening in my life (new place, gf, my dogs health is improving), and I've even dropped some bad old habits like smoking.

    It's super sad to say that I wouldn't have a hard time walking away from the team for a while. It's the only major source of negativity in my life right now.

    Don't get me wrong I'll always love the game of hockey. I'll be a beer leaguer until I can't lace up my own skates anymore.

    But quite honestly I have more fun watching the NFL these days...its a superior product to the NHL, period. And far less random.

    I won't be suprised if yet another one of my old habits/obsessions is replaced with something more stable and uplifting.

    Not embarrassed.

    But I’ve definitely lost a ton of interest in the team. All of the off ice drama combined with how bad the team is and ownership issues don’t leave a lot of hope.

    When and if we trade EK, that will be rock bottom. And it will take many years to recover from it.

    I’m not personally embarrased, but we are a joke of a team. Let’s just say I won’t be wearing any Sens gear in public for a while

    I am not embarrased to be a fan no. These things are out of our control. Its embarrassing for all of those involved though thats for sure. But lets get serious it all starts from the top. There is no leadership in this organization. Until there is a sale and this org is gutted and rebuilt top to bottom then this will continue. The trickle down of character runs deep here. Since Bryan left us we have seen the organization disintergrate from within. Apparently lying and being two faced from ownership and management has trickled down as acceptable behavior to the very depths of the organization.

    I guess the frusterating thing to me is out of all the rumors two had the most chatter from all the people i know connected to the team. One was this situation with the Hoffmans and Karlssons the second was the sale of the team. Hopefully they both come to fruition or this is a truly crule joke to us loyal sens fans.

    Capitalism is far from being a perfect system, but it sure as heck beats whatever system is in second place.

    Yeah, I'm embarrassed. Used to be that when someone asked me my favourite team, I could proudly say 'Senators.' Now, I hesitate as to whether I even want to answer, and when I do it's met with looks of pity from fans who know what's going on with the team.

    As the coach from Letterkenny would say, IT'S ****ING EMBARRASSING!!!

    Angry, disappointed, dumbfounded...

    I really feel let down by this organization, and it has nothing to do with the on-ice product. I get it - a lot of nasty stuff happens behind the scenes of pro sports teams and the entitlement that young rich men have when they are pro athletes - but I damned well expect better from a team and organization that represents my city.

    Sens will always be my #1 team...but this **** is getting hard to watch. I care deeply about this team, this city, and even the fans who support the Sens. It's hard watching such an implosion, and being powerless to fix anything.

    Not embarrassed, just fed up.

    If Melnyk doesn't sell and EK is traded, then I'm putting my fandom on hold until Eugene is gone.

    I am not embarrassed because I am not responsible for what has occurred. Just sad and disappointed.

    Your comment caused me to think about the old comedy team “The Three Stooges” (Moe, Curly and Larry). For this team they become Dorion, Lee and Boucher.

    I'm not embarrassed, it sucks as a fan, but why would we be embarrassed?.

    What is embarrassing is how obvious it was that the team was headed in the wrong direction, but we stayed the course and even fast forwarded the process.

    All this other drama is just Murphy's Law at work.
