It _may_ be a failure when we look back on it from the future, but seriously, dude, "prior performance is no guarantee of future results". Try letting them make their effort before you bury them in this case.
Not gunning you down specifically for this Hans because you made a fair point on affiliation and location and it's reasonable but I find it really sad how minor league fans in sports make a big deal out of whom the affiliate is and don't just support regardless. Not like the major league team gives too much of a **** about you. You're just their dumping ground for extra bodies.
