    Just follow back to the post. Red Cloud beat me to this argument.

    I never said I only care about RPI come playoff time. I said I was proud of the way RPI performed this year, however was disappointed in the coach and team for the way the season ended. The team underperformed when it mattered most and to me and all of us "casual" fans, that was disappointing. Aren't the playoffs what you play the regular season for? I don't know what other teams you root for, but don't you find playoff wins are so much more memorable than regular season accomplishments? This is, after all, the last year the ECACs are in Albany and it would've been nice to see RPI there for the first time. Therefore, that is the nature of my disappointment.

    I'd also like to apologize for going to school in Maryland and not being able to attend many RPI games for the past few years. Although I check box scores and keep up on team news, I guess this means I only care about three games a year. Right...
    I also live a considerable distance from my team, in that I cannot attend every game. Do you tune into the radio simulcast for the games? Have you attended to RPI-TV webcasts? If so, you should have mentioned that, and we never would have had this discussion. We can leave out regular posting on here, since there are plenty of die-hard fans out there that don't post on here and enjoy following college hockey.

    As for accomplishments, I don't take pride in single games; I think long term. The big picture, as it were.

    Yes, thank you Red Cloud. That was the post I was referencing as well. As I said, I was disappointed with the result of RPI hockey this year. THE RESULT, which I immediately followed up by referencing their 1st round playoff loss.

    I guess for you that requires an in depth explanation: Despite the fact that they performed so well in the regular season and accomplished many things, they still lost in the first round of the playoffs. THAT WAS DISAPPOINTING!

    For anyone and everyone with half a brain who is a regular member of the community.

    I expect you'll fade into the background sometime around the time your team crashes out. Your type always does this time of year.

    In each situation here with which you are very, very concerned, I do not feel the need to repeat that which others have ALREADY SAID. I do not need to take credit for the work of others.

    That, in essence is why you APPEAR to feel that everybody is out to get you, despite you saying otherwise.
    I honestly don't care how I "appear" to feel. I've already told you how things are. If you want to make up stuff like that in your mind, it's a free country.

    Perhaps you can enact the phrase "actions speak louder than words" in your future posts to disprove that sentiment felt by others.
    This is the Internet, friend. Exactly how am I supposed to use actions?

    I see. And people who don't attend church regularly shouldn't bother showing up on Easter Sunday.

    I've been a Brown hockey fan since 1970, with season tickets since 1975ish. So I may be a USCHO forum "n00b" but I am not at all casual about hockey in general, Brown hockey in particular.

    Anyway: peace. You seem like an OK guy. :-)

    Maybe. But last time I looked, *this* was not the RPI thread. It's the ECAC/Albany 2010 thread, yes?

    I remember this stuff from middle school. Or was it 3rd grade.
    For me, it was 4th.

    Nowhere did I say we were bosses around here. However, there are many posters here that are extremely well-informed about their team, and will only apply conscientious detail towards informed discussions. I'm sure if I went to the Brown thread and started running my mouth about your team and it had absolutely no basis whatsoever, you would probably feel the same way.

    If you ever listen to "The Savage Nation" on the radio, think of it in terms of the host of that show.

    Thank you, Red Cloud, again for your constructive criticism. The reason people are upset with you, including myself, is you make posts that are relatively harsh in regards to people's "lack of knowledge" about things you deem yourself an expert in, i.e. the "understanding on the order of things in the Capital District."
    Why is that harsh? I'm making a simple statement.

    You don't have to be an expert to find that certain statements are wrong on their face.

    And by doing this, you do appear to feel like everybody is out to get you.
    However, my own words have said that I don't think anyone's "out to get me." I do think there are people who over-react.

    I'm sorry if you feel slammed. Far too many people feel "slammed" just because I point out that they're wrong.

    Not to mention, they can just watch it on the boob tube. No wonder professional sports leagues push for blackout rules.
