This until five minutes later when someone else comes along and does it better than him and the sport is forgotten about by its inventor and former sole participant/world champion/record holder and by the general public.

All the time I held on the promise of Beach Volleyball to follow. When it did, Menís. Absolutely gutted. :veryangry

Yes, I know it was 27 years ago, but I canít let it go. The underhand injustice of it all still infuriates me to this day.

When the ban was lifted - EVERYTIME they then qualified - the League should have said 'NO' - you are still banned - we are giving your place in turn to the teams that missed out.

Every club paid for their mistake.

Popped down to the office and told thereís now a £3 after saying are you joking it was printed out for free.

Iím sure they tell you to go to box office if you have printing issues

It took all of 5 seconds to print equating to an hourly rate of £2160.

Why does it need printing ?
Why cannot they scan it from a smart phone ?

If you're printing 720 an hour, the additional costs are hardly just "incidental". JAT.

Nope and I never said that. But calculating an inflated hourly rate to try and base an argument is misleading.

I reckon more like 10 years. As Oscar Wilde one said ' the only problem with being in fashion is that next week you will be out of fashion'.

Sitting in my local, watching Champions League football and having to listen to yanks continuously arguing about how away goals count double works. If people think our colonial cousins don't understand irony well they definitely haven't got a clue when it comes to' Away goals counting bloody double. Listening to a couple of the brighter sparks trying to explain it, would make you weep. One example was, when City went a goal ahead the expert up the bar told his buddy, " you see Dwayne, now City have two goals, because they count as two." This had them all further confused until one of my mates spoiled it by explaining to them that they're called 'Away Goals' for a reason. The response to this was something like, "oh so this match up is in Man--Chester? So if the goals away are double, does this mean United get six goals for last Saturday.:wallbash:

People that are overly polite to the point that you know it's fake and then make you wonder if they're trying to take the piss.

Yes, you are absolutely correct, 100%. I couldn't agree with you more.

People of limited vocabulary, or just lazy with their words. Particularly exclamations and phrases, such as:

Bless
Quality
Are you serious right now (USA)
Take care
Sorted
Like (used as some sort of pre-fix to a quotation. "He was like,....." )

Try extending your vocabulary by reading a book,...with words in it, as well as pictures.

Muscle stiffness in the morning. How can you go to bed at night feeling like an elastic band and wake up like a plank of wood. Poxy muscles.

To save me (and many others) trawling through every thread, can you explain why ? Always seems a very good and fair mod

His response to me having a bit of fun on the Pre Brighton Press conference

"From someone who is relying on the bbs for the updates and not able to watch it from GPD till I can be arsed to let you back."

The last line makes him look a little bit power hungry if you ask me.

The Mods happily ignore casual racism and homophobia, but if you piss off a pre menstrual Brummie Allan you're for it!
