Not so much in the last few years but used to enjoy his talks around 2018/19 time. I think he’s been very ill since.

Very smart man.

I’m happy to represent them and bet with every single person who thinks we will go up next season.

I’m amazed only STID and yourself have come forward after what we have been hearing for the past year.

They tried to sign him in January. I think they may well go back in for him.

No idea what’s happened at Rangers with him, but he’s only 31. I think he can have at least another 2 years of Premier League football if he can keep fit - which is probably his biggest challenge.

As I said, the thirst for finding racism is insatiable.

The OP once called me ‘racist’ and a ‘piece of dirt’ because I factually told him that Planned Parenthood was set up in African American communities to reduce the population. It’s a known fact with it being quoted by Margaret Sanger who set up the organisation in 1916.

It was after I made the point that in one year in New York State, more African American babies were aborted than born. A shocking fact, but a fact all the same.

The truth of the matter is these people don’t know very much about the American social situation, have a very poor grasp of history and very little desire to discuss the subject as most of them know they lack that knowledge. It’s far easier to call someone a name or post a link they haven’t read or understood - and dash.

I never got an apology. As one of the most accepting people there is of any race, religion, gender or sexuality, I found the attack utterly bizarre. I think he realised his error after that and was rather pleasant, but it seems the far left have dragged him in once again. I’m sure he will find a welcoming home on a similar forum, there are plenty of that type there.

All of the stuff they spout can be debunked instantly with data.

Took me about 5 mins after I decided to properly take a look, to find that this “massive problem” the OP was trying to tell us was present and that we should be embarrassed about (?!), was 3 times less common than being struck by lightning.

It took me about 20 mins to debunk the “football clubs are racist because they don’t employ black managers” myth. The debate had been raging for years, clearly nobody thought to look at the pool of qualified managers and their demographics - turns out it was almost identical % split with the active employed demographics. No issue at all.

Same with “cops are shooting black people because they are racist”. People were making the gross error of adjusting for population as opposed to crime rate. Once you do the obviously correct calculation then there is no disparity.

Same with the gender pay gap. There isn’t one. There is an occupation pay gap, which is perfectly normal and reasonable, men and women largely have different interests.

Some people need racism because it gives them something to pretend to fight against.

Sadly for them, most people are decent and couldn’t give a damn what colour skin you have. These people always looking for racism are damaging society more than they know, the seeds they are planting in peoples minds are hard to remove.

Things are not rosy between Pato and the club so wouldn’t be overly shocked to not see him again, unless they can put the strops to one side.

He’s one of our best attacking threats so let’s hope they can come to a resolution. We can’t be having the attitude we saw this season.

What a ludicrous take on it.

There isn’t a lawyer in the land that could get him off on “self defence” on that evidence.

I don’t know many players who will publicly state the opposite though to be fair.

I can’t imagine there are many players enthused at our position and our performances. There isn’t too much enjoyable about not picking up your win bonus week after week.

Piroe not wanting to sign a new contract as we speak I see. He won’t be the last.

Did RM bottle every game he didn’t win this season though out of interest?

It was MM’s influence that brought RM here.

Not fair for you to be taking all the burden.

Have you settled on which ones they are yet?

You seemed confused last week. First I was AC, then Resolven was AC - not sure if you added any more since then.

Or am I Resolven and AC?

You wouldn’t be able to tell if the circumference is outside the arc unless you are looking at a direct birds-eye view of the ball.

Hence why when the linesmen check they do so standing over the ball, something of course you are unable to do. This has been done for so long as I can remember and nothing to do with television.

People complained about this one because “the ball was not touching the line”. Perfectly legal.



Next time you see one STID, screen grab and post it.

People always complain about the ball not being in the arc but it always is.

It can be outside the arc but still technically be inside. The ball is a sphere so even when it’s put outside the arc, some part of the circumference will be overhanging the line, meaning it’s in the arc. To the naked eye it will seem outside though.

Sharp seems a class act, could have been a lot worse.

Some great memories running on the pitch as a youngster, this idiot will probably (rightly) put an end to that.

The Hull game is fast slipping out of my memory, only remember parts from the game. But the scenes at the end I’ll never forget.

How can you bottle a game you aren’t expected to win?

Do you call Martin a bottler everytime we lose? Or does it depend on who is the manager?

Does the only way to avoid being a bottler involve never losing an important game against better sides?

It seems such a strange insult designed to be used in lieu of any common sense or rationale.

I clicked on it as I’ll be doing a bit of work in New York next year. I expected some post about how horrific an event it was, I was going to add my views in agreement.. but no.

Political posturing and using this tragedy to goad others without the ability to rationalise why. Not for the first time this poster has done something like this, it’s extremely disappointing behaviour from him.

Sadly a lot of people on the left of politics don’t understand the social situation in America or indeed it’s history. He called me racist once for telling him, quite factually, that Planned Parenthood was originally a racist organisation set up in predominantly black areas in order to reduce the population.

That wasn’t an opinion, but a fact, straight from the mouth of the person who created Planned Parenthood.

It’s almost impossible to have a conversation with someone who thinks they know what they are talking about but actually have no clue, as they don’t even understand the basic fundamentals of the point you are making due to lack of knowledge. Sadly that often ends up in personal attacks as a result.

I thought the OP had turned a corner but clearly not. Straight back to this maddening extreme left view, pushing things that simply don’t stack up and don’t have any semblance of reality.

It’s a shame.

Absolutely, it’s just the shifting morality I can’t stand.

A bloke enters a Brooklyn subway donned in tactical gear, with smoke bombs a guns. Discharged 33 rounds from his glok pistol striking 10 people and injuring a further 13.

This was like two weeks ago.

He was clearly extremely racist and bigoted against white people.

On his social media he said:

- “O black Jesus, please kill all the whiteys”

- “The white motherf–kers that I want to kill, you know, I really want to kill them because they’re white”

- “White people and black people as we call ourselves should not have any contact with each other,”

- “Blacks and whites so-called should not even be in the same hemisphere.”

Was there a thread from the likes of Professor claiming how in danger people are from this anti white terrorism and how the leftist media are demonising and radicalising people?

No. Of course not.

Same with Waukesha where a racist black man ran over 40 people killing half a dozen at a Xmas parade and made similar remarks on his social media regarding white people.

Did the Professor and others of similar mindset create a thread proclaiming how in danger people are from anti white terrorism?

No. Of course not.

There are extremists on all sides, extremists in every race and religion. But thankfully it’s not common despite what they try and claim and it’s not one sided as they also try to claim.

America has a crime problem, no question about that. It has a mental health crisis, again no question about that.

But a massive race problem? Not buying it. It would be among the last things on the list when it came to issues, it’s one of the most diverse countries on the planet.

I didn’t say it was controversial. I was interested in your findings from other similar crimes.

It seems there is the same people that pop up whenever a left wing slant can be promoted through tragedy regardless of circumstance.

Not all of these things will be down to mental illness. Perfectly sane people murder.

The point regarding this instance is that the mental health issues are already documented. So ignoring them (not saying you have) and trying to portray it as a window to massive race issues in the country is just nonsense.

As I said above, you are usually three times as likely to be killed by lightning than by a white supremacist regardless of your race. Would prefer it to be none of course, but let’s not pretend people should be frightened coming out of their homes with racist Americans baying for blood around every corner.

It’s fantasy.

I’ve got my answer anyway.

19,400 homicides last year in the US.

From what I can see there was 13 murders linked to white supremacy and 6 to left wing extremism.

To put that into context - about the same amount that died after being struck by lightning last year (11) - which was actually a record low. Usually the average number of death by lightning is 36.

So in a normal year, you are around 3 times more likely to be killed by lightning than any form of ‘white supremacy’, regardless of your race.

This narrative pushed by these people is ludicrous, it’s done to scare and push their ever maddening political views.
