Not exactly unpredictable but ---
1. poor trades
2. poor free agent acquisitions
3. poor drafting
4. good old fashion bad luck
I can probably come up with more reason, but my Kings are winning right now, in December---in fact they are in first place, and I have to live it up while I can.

#16 | 1586 days ago

Well, I am a Seahawks fan. Injuries have plagued us, and so has management. Mora is an idiot, our offensive coordinator is retarded, our defenseive coordinator has gotten really soft, and our former GM was a complete dumb ***. Hopefully they fix themselves, and quick....:( At least Real Salt Lake won a championship!

#27 | 1585 days ago

snitches and dogs...lazy players...sorry defense...5 foot corners...no Michael Turner...bad use of Norwood...drugs....arrogant owners...roger goddell...and apparenty "TURF TOE"! Really, turf toe, really. If i'm remembering correctly ronnie lott had a finger cut off to play. WTF? "Oh..it's not really in a spot that you can shoot up." So, you're telling me that you cant find a place on a toe to jam a needle in and help numb or relieve pain. Liars!, you just want to make sure you have an excuse as to why  We suck Again!
...and thats just my football team.

Sorry, maybe I shouldve posted this in The Vent.

#29 | 1585 days ago

i dunno about the rockets, but the astros and texans have this amazing knack for kicking their own asses in a game. it's like they're straight up emo or something just removing themselves completely from contention by pulling stunts like a motherloving halfback pass from the 4 and not seeing anyone open and therefore lollipopping it to two guys from the other team rather than cradling the ball and hitting the ground....jesus h!! or the astros braindead retard of a manager deciding to go ahead and pitch to prince fielder with only one on and two out in the top of the 8th after the stros have miraculously come back twice only to have that bowling ball of a man/effing power house of a hitter jerk it out of right field to put us securely back into the loss column.

my head is going to explode if i comment further.

 Considering the most dominant pitcher in baseball is a 5''9 weedhead, you may have a point.
