    I don't go over there very often but I check in every now and then when it will load for me, there is a thread that says Sammy should be thanking dave for all he has (I know there was a similar one here that passed quickly thank god).

    My feelings on this issue isn't my point here, there are a hundreds pages of people that agree to no end LOL and they all believe that Sammy should get down and lick Dave's nuts for all he has done for him

    I suppose that sould be expected considering its a "Dave" forum but for the love of god man, they are the most biased group of people I have ever seen. Here at vhlinks we certainly get to see both sides of the fence and I am thankful for that [img]smile.gif[/img]

    You my as well tell the Taliban that Allah doesn't exist because you'll get the same response. It's all over the top blind loyalty. They are consistently crazy, I will say that for them at least. If Hagar comes back there gonna loose it at that site. It will be worth going there just to read some of the Psycho posts. They'll be amusing if not anything.

    as compared to what, semi-loyalty? half-assed loyalty? only some-of-the-time loyalty?

    then it wouldnt BE loyalty!

    that's just my opinion.

    There is a very fine line that needs to be drawn there when it comes to loyalty and obsession. More of them over there have probably been to more Van Hagar concerts than they have actual shows of Dave solo or with Van Halen.

    </font>[/QUOTE]Loyalty means always liking your favorite singer, team, etc, but it DOESN'T mean that you always think that your favorite never does any wrong, screws up, is an asshole, etc.
    Just because you like someone doesn't mean they're perfect.

    I am always behind the college team that I pull for, but if the coach makes a mistake, or dumb play call, I am all for someone pointing it out....but on the message boards there are always a group of people that think you should never criticize the team or anyone involved, or you're not a "true fan".
    What a load of crap. Every time I see something like that, it reminds me of the Army.
    You can be loyal to someone/something and still find fault with them/it.

    I love DLR-era VH; it's what I grew up on, and VH was at their peak w/DLR when I was in high school.
    That being said, I think DLR is a flaming asshole, and I'd hate to have to live with him day-to-day on tour. I don't blame Eddie for feeling the same way.
    I'm sure Hagar has his moments, too, although I can't imagine him being as egotistical as Roth. Eddie's name for their ego, LSD, is appropriate.
    IMO, VH needs a bit of LSD for their music to work. They just need to decide on how much they can put up with and still function.
    Hopefully, they will do this soon.
    I asked a ref if he could give me a technical foul for thinking bad things about him. He said, of course not. I said, well, I think you stink. And he gave me a technical. You can't trust em. -

    </font>[/QUOTE]Pacfanweb, Said beautifully. That's exactly what I mean by blind loyalty. Hanging shit on Sammy or Eddie all the time instead of pointing the finger where it belongs at your almighty holy one. The fact that you hate Sammy or think the Roth era is the only true VH era is fine with me, everyone's entitled to there opinion. As I have said in other posts just credit the Diamond one for walking away and fucking up his own career. Don't keep blaming Sammy as he somehow conspired to get Roth out of the band back in 1885. You can be loyal and objective at the same time, however everything with you hard core Roth supporters is "Dave Rules" no matter what kind of shit he say's or does.

    Ah, the DLRArmy, the proverbial wedgie of the VH online community.

    Well at least they let you know at the door they're DLR biased.

    that's just my opinion.
    </font>[/QUOTE]your understanding of loyalty is incredibly narrow and poorly reasoned.

    an example: the people around Elvis towards the end of his life were his 'loyal' Memphis Mafia. with few exceptions, these were the same 'loyal' idiots who impotently watched as the big El died a slow, miserable and unnecessary death.

    my point is that loyalty is more than just blindly supporting someone. sometimes loyalty is having the balls to stand up and call it like is, even when reality is unpleasant.
