Forget Ebola, Post Traumatic Sabres Syndrome Hits Home by @Buffalogal

As Nas said: You can hate me now. This post may not get a lot of warm and fuzzy reactions because of #embracethetank and the #onebuffalo launch. However, it may be an underrepresented representation of how a sector of the Sabres Fan population feels. We are burnt out. We have been trampled. We have been almost forgotten. We have PTSS—or Post Traumatic Sabres Syndrome. The past...

Just sayin’. The Buffalo Sabres were never going to be a playoff team this season, but there were certainly people who thought they’d be better...
