didn't offend me ~ I can't think when I was last offended ~ but his viewpoint did leave me incredulous. Thank God we neither have management nor players who think like this.
That's the thing about opinions isn't it ?
We are all entitled to our own regardless of how different they may be from others.
And we are all entitled to express an alternative with reasoned arguement to back it up.
Posters who resort to personal snipes such as suggesting someone may need help with maths or other sarcastic vernacular needs to have a look at themselves.
Just remember there may be those that do have issues and would be offended. But I doubt you would care anyway by the sounds of it !
This Forum is sometimes referred to as the Kiddies Forum by the TFF lot which is not justified in my opinion. However, since the re-instatement of one particular self-opinionated individual, I feel the Forum has degenerated into the Nasty Forum. It has put me off logging in as often as I used to and I am not posting as frequently (some may think 'Thank god for that' !). I have also noticed that some other Forum members are not posting, or not posting as often. By and large, posters on here have always respected the views of others without responding in a confrontational manner and, thankfully, this is still mostly the case.
I'll give you two examples - both Forever Dave and SNW somehow were able to respond fairly and constructively to tufcyellowarmy's posting without finding it necessary to ask aggresively, in bold print, 'Whatever are you talking about?' or question his maths ability. In fact, there is an element of truth in TUFC's posting. Of course no teams are relegated in October, but we are now drifting into November. Of the six league games between now and the end of November, four are against sides below half way (Ebbsfleet tonight are just above half way). Only Sutton (away on Nov 21st) are in the top half dozen, and they have lost twice as many games as Ebbsfleet who have only lost two. We need to pick up points from these games because when we go into December, we're up against the likes of Tranmere (a) and Aldershot (h) where points won't be so easy to come by, although Eastleigh over the Christmas period could yield a few points as they seem to be struggling this season. After that, we're into January when if we're not clear of the bottom four, a relegation dogfight is very much on the cards.
Tonight's match - Ebbsflleet are very much the draw specialists in the league, having drawn 9 of their 16 games. I'm going for another draw tonight - by the 'Ray' score of 1 - 1. Although we need wins, a point tonight would be acceptable.
