#556100 Off the cuff posts about 'Any game' not covered by forums

Posted by craig on 10 September 2017 - 09:06 AM

but he didn't actually 'lunge' at the opponent.....he was specifically going for the ball with his boot raised high. So if 'excessive force' is debatable should it still be red ? All about opinions.

It would be really useful if the ref himself could tell us why he sent him off.

Had look at the rules re this and found....

  • Reckless is when a player acts with disregard to the danger to, or consequences for, an opponent and must be cautioned
  • Using excessive force is when a player exceeds the necessary use of force and endangers the safety of an opponent and must be sent off


when 'endangers the safety of an opponent' excessive force must be present. Was there 'excessive force used in Mane's challenge ? Personally don't think so so imo a yellow should have been shown.
I like when the rules comes out. If only pundits did that.

Another bit.

"Any player who lunges at an opponent in challenging for the ball from the
front, from the side or from behind using one or both legs, with excessive force
and endangering the safety of an opponent is guilty of serious foul play."

I think he lunged. I think he endangered safety of the opponent. Excessive force is debatable, but then the resulting injury suggests it was.


#551196 No predictor for the coming season

Posted by craig on 19 July 2017 - 08:49 PM

Regarding the future of the forum. It makes no money and hasn't done for a long time. I'm not talking profit, I mean that it makes nothing. I don't mind though, so it won't close for financial reasons.

I've never really known how long the forum would last, but I have no immediate plans to review things. I like the idea of football seasons and can see it continuing beyond next summer.

#549193 Celtic want a review over Rangers' sporting advantage

Posted by craig on 05 July 2017 - 06:31 PM

I thought that a ruling was already made on that. No sporting advantage gained, so why the desire to strip titles? If money equalled sporting success, Rangers would be in the next round of the Europa League. They would have fired ten past the financially diddy team. In fact, they wouldn't even have played last night, because they would have finished second ahead of Aberdeen, and been able to rest up while the poorer teams competed in the first round. 




#548020 Geo the Ger.......

I had many a good chat with him behind the scenes. He was quite ill and said that the forum and specifically The quiz helped him pass the time as he couldn't get about much. The quiz helped him and he helped entertain us and also help out charity while doing so.

I suspected it would be serious when he stopped posting, but I didn't know how to find out as he just stopped messaging back.

Aye Foo Fighters are fine. Seen Quo live 40 years ago....brilliant.

PS.....have a great time. Old boy going with you ?

Yeah, it's his 12th year too. He is tempted by Status Quo, especially since he loves the tent / location they are playing in. I seen them play the pyramid a few years back and enjoyed them, but not sure acoustic would be the same, especially after Parfitt dying.

#546470 Scotland V England Euro when?

Posted by craig on 12 June 2017 - 11:38 AM

Fuck me - unbelievable shite even for your standards. Can't see past guys wearing hoops tops for their day job. These guys get paid 1/4 of the superstars across the border and in case you didnt notice we almost won the fucking game.

 

This is pathetic - having a go at the Celtic players - yup you say its is scotland players but who else is playing against Ross County etc. Where are your lot doing their bit?? On their fucking cheap package holidays.

 

You are a bitter wee man Mr Billy bullshitter

Rangers players were back last Monday. No holiday there.

I've hidden a few posts that were off topic and reopened the thread in the hope that discussions doesn't veer off track again. If it does, I will just lock it again.

#545040 You Spam C%&*s

Posted by craig on 01 June 2017 - 07:30 PM

The forum needs updated to better protect it from spammers registering for the site. I couldn't do that while the predictor was running, so will plan on doing that in the next couple of weeks. I will let everyone know what I am going to do it exactly.

 

I messed up a bit on my phone and was no longer receiving email notifications when spam was reported (thanks Dug and anyone else who uses that feature). I will sort that out.

 

I've changed the registration system so that I have to manually approve each new account. that wont be foolproof cos it needs me to pick up a potential spammer, but it should help.
