Based on one productive prior season, you give an nonperforming player a long leash and wait and wait for them to perform to draft day expectations. However, they either never come through, or when they finally produce, it’s far too late in the season to make any difference. Similar to those diehards who still buy tickets to Guns N’ Roses shows based on one great record (Appetite for Destruction) and expect Axl to take the stage promptly at 10:00 p.m., only to stand around until 1:30 a.m. wondering why they shelled out $200 on mezzanine tickets and watered-down Jack and Cokes.

You forgot to type that in sarcasm font. Besides, we all know the best song on that set was 'Estranged'. Oil tankers, Axl swimming with dolphins and plenty of piano...how does that not scream straight up great rock and roll?

Those two albums may have enough songs to make 1 actual album worth listening to. Look at L.A. Guns, they released a much better sophomore effort.

And that's what ruined these albums for me. I can't listen to them without thinking jesus christ axl... every other song or so. I listen to Appetite regularly, but the rest of their discography is mix tape fodder at absolute best.
