Yesterday I staged a very small rap battle--the lack of hip hop literacy was shocking--but I realize that some people may have been turned off by the topic. My intention was not actually to slate Ryan Mason all that much, that happens if I bring him up or not. What I was hoping for, by naming it, the tension that is, was that we all could move on.
That's one of my favorite things about being a Spurs supporter. Stupid things happen to us and we keep going. Ryan Mason has been a lightning rod on this site for some time so I thought we could at least have a little fun with it. He's going to play in Mousa's absence, we may as all get on with it. Screaming he's s*** or not at this point isn't all that interesting.
This isn't as much about a player as it is about why do we interact on the site. Are we here to search for objective truth or to have fun? I think we can still have fun and want to win at the same time. Seriously, we're not Real Madrid. Conversely, I think we can still have fun and lose at the same time. Seriously, we're not Aston Villa. I'd like to think, going forward, we can lose a match here and there without filling our drawers.
And now for the "news":

Having good loan spells doesn't always speak to a player's level, look at Harry, but I wonder if he'll get a chance next year or if we just try to cash in on his third consecutive good season away from the Lane.
