Few things are more awkward & uncomfortable than getting a call from a friend that kinda fell off and they try to make good by calling to see how you're doing after they did something lame like "borrowing your car", sleeping with your sister or never repaying the $500 they borrowed in AC that one time. Sometimes it's just best not to bring up old shit.
RSL doesn't feel that way. They've got to go reminding their fans that they are worse than The Bravery's new album by having Alecko Eskandarian and Mehdi Ballouchy call season ticket holders at home to "thank them for thier support". Which translates to "please don't abandon this sinking ship just yet even though our coach is not a coach, and our best player is about to leave us for Europe".
