    Well, yeah - it's a fan's prerogative to moan about his team. :mad:

    As regards Hellbinder, he was much the same after the release of R420 as I remember (though perhaps not quite so vehement). Unrealistic expectations and all that.

    I'm sure he'll be back on board the red team when R600 is on the way. :wink:

    Yes, my dad and grandfather were that way too. Viciously even at times.

    Their team? The Pittsburgh Steelers of the '70s. I kid you not. :lol: They were mostly reduced to just predicting imminent disaster that almost never happened. "They're gonna blow it yet, just you watch!" "Grandpa, they're up by 21 in the fourth quarter!".

    LOL. Go Steelers!!!

    Actually, that is the exact frame of mind in which I watch their games now. Then again, I became a fan in the 90s... :razz:

    I don't know why Hellbinder is so disappointed. I mean clearly he should have seen this coming with all of his super secret inside sources. ;)

    I somewhat wonder if HB was in fact expecting R520 to be R580. There is some evidence in his earlier posts to this effect, triple the shader power, etc.

    Yes, but in a kind of endearing way, IMO. :)
