First topic message reminder :

Super

For starters I live in a one bedroom flat. But I think you know that it should not take the people of a nation putting refugees up in their house before the government is required to do anything about it.

For example the government could easily rent 50 premier inns and put the refugees there until they can be given homes.


"Of course it matters. They have a far greater responsibility than the UK does"

So you are saying that because those countries closer to Syria have neglected their responsibilities the UK has the right to do nothing? You are saying that one country doing nothing is sufficient for another country to justify doing nothing?

Nothing wrong with wearing sports gear for sports activities, that's what it's designed for. Wearing it for going down the shops, restaurant, on holiday etc is just sad. As bad as those planks who hang flags from balconies.

Ive got tons of football shrts, I went through a stage of buying them from places I was on holiday, and then just became a habit to pick up cheap football tops. Sometimes i would wear them, when no playing. Just because it was an item of clothing, and I dont usually stroll round with no top on. I would wear a football top to the shop, though I would not wear them for social events, or going to the pub , unless its to watch football. I would even wear a top in bed, if it was cold anyway. I still see no issues with any of that. I am so happy my life is pretty good and i dont have to get wound up by minimal things.

Getting away from the wearing of sports clothing (I do wear rugby shirts occasionally to show support - but never with a number or a player's name on it - and golf polo shirts, even when I'm not playing), can someone tell me why we have to have football interviews as Global Announcements on the Sticky threads? I don't mind them on the football pages but why foist them on everyone? We don't all worship at the altar that is football!

I suppose I'll get modded out for that heresy Rolling Eyes

I would probably wear football shirts too if they actually looked semi respectable and weren't made from the cheapest material known to man. I mean they are made of polyester and are being sold for €60 plus. Talk about a rip off. Polyester can be toxic and it retains bad odours more than any other material. They are also covered in branding. You could get lots of nicer shirts for that amount of money. I do on occasion wear rugby shirts but at least they are made from quality material and don't smell so bad.

Well said LP, the top 4 threads on the golf page are all obscure football interviews. It's worth noting that there isn't a single comment on any of those threads, so it's pretty obvious that nobody else is interested in them either.

I reckon if Super was married, and St Andrews had a football team, it would be a different story. You can't empathise when the conditions don't exist for you. I can imagine him staggering home with a can of Tennants Extra dribbling down his football shirt, on his way to teach his wife a lesson.

I've wondered about the stickies/announcements, (very mildly) irksome and I'd rather they didn't appear personally, but hey ho it's not my website and I do dip in to the occasional "who's the best" or (so-called) culture cup things that appear.

St Andrews probably has a football team and I'm sure Super hates it for no longer being relevant for serious competition, having no defence and constantly being open to attack down the left.

That comes automatically from being a QPR fan I guess.

You're probably right Pedro. Otherwise would have topped myself long ago. It's incredible watching world class players transform into donkeys simply by slipping on a blue and white hooped shirt.

I've always struggled with the song which goes "we're the finest football team... the world has ever seen". Now fans of QPR and every other mediocre team sing this song every week without the merest hint of sarcasm. I'm convinced a lot of the fans are so, err, passionate (deluded) that they believe it is true.

I asked on one of the sticky threads a couple of months ago why they were there and who these people were anyway. I was told I was being rude and that they were there to give wider exposure

Has anyone ever even heard of any of these "featured" people?

I don't really mind there being stickies to promote the wider activities happening on the site but it would be nice if the golf section got some promo once in a while. I am sure we could all cope with the football global stickies if there were golf global stickies designed to bring more traffic to the site?

I just kind of object to guys using the term "tearing" in reference to having sex with women. It probably isn't all that funny to joke about having sex with the objective of causing genital mutilation.

I actually do object to having global football sticky threads. Why football? No other sport gets global stickies. I just don't like having football so "in your face". I have very little interest in it.

Kwini's thread could easily be a global sticky for one day a week. Put it up as global sticky for 24 hours in the lead up to each weeks PGAT event. It doesn't even need to be every week, just put it up for the more interesting events.

I was mildy disgusted when I initially thought this might refer to Mac's prediliction for teenage wizards. Then I remembered he's been vocal in the Adam Johnson debate. I bet there would have been no faux outrage had a 15 year old Emma Watson thrown herself on Mac in his bedsit.

Bugger off. I'll neither apologise nor am I ashamed. I'm fed up to the back teeth of open posts that are directly baiting mods/admins.  You, in particular, should know better. LP's posts are suffixed so often with a challenge like the above, it's almost a joke and it's boring in the extreme. If someone has a gripe of that sort, stick it in a PM or, if it bothers them that much, go somewhere else.

Where do your sympathies lie in this case;

http://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/mar/16/north-korea-sentences-us-student-to-15-years-hard-labour

An american student has been sentenced to 15 years hard labour in N.Korea for stealing a political banner from a staff room in a hotel.

Should he have known to avoid that sort of behavior when visiting the DPR, would you like to see his release negotiated, is the punishment fair or do you have any other thoughts on the matter?

Should he have known to avoid that sort of behaviour in N. Korea?

Well yes, rather silly thing to do. From the article: "In a prepared statement read out before TV cameras, Warmbier said a member of Friendship United Methodist Church in Wyoming, Ohio, described as the mother of a friend, had offered him a used car worth $10,000 if he could return with the banner as a “trophy” from North Korea." So a bit of an idiot really.

Would you like to see his release negotiated?

Of course, 15 years hard labour is a ridiculous punishment for this "crime", but not sure N. Korea will play ball on that.

Is the punishment fair?

Of course it isn't, it's completely ridiculous.

Other thoughts.

Probably N. Korea grandstanding against the US for the latest round of UN sanctions. It really is a completely crazy place, and TBH why any sensible Western person would want to travel there eludes me.

On your last point I wonder if in this case did he want to go there to hand out bibles?

Does anyone know the previous outcomes of cases like this and whether or not the west can usually get prisoners back from the DPRK?

I would have PM'd the original poster of all the football stuff but he doesn't allow PMs so I couldn't. The only way I could see to ask how and why we get all this football stuff foisted on us was through this page. So very sorry if it offended anyone and got my Admins confused with my Moderators. kiss

Mac, from the article he was at the end of a tour organised by Young Pioneer Tours, but they just seem to organise tours there. Might have genuinely gone for a spot of tourism, there's no evidence that he was there to hand out bibles, or anything linking him to religion other than the silly stunt he tried to pull for a "mother of a friend" who's religious. Tenuous at best IMO...

No idea of any previous cases.

Well yes, rather silly thing to do. From the article: "In a prepared statement read out before TV cameras, Warmbier said a member of Friendship United Methodist Church in Wyoming, Ohio, described as the mother of a friend, had offered him a used car worth $10,000 if he could return with the banner as a “trophy” from North Korea." So a bit of an idiot really.

Would you like to see his release negotiated?

Of course, 15 years hard labour is a ridiculous punishment for this "crime", but not sure N. Korea will play ball on that.

Is the punishment fair?

Of course it isn't, it's completely ridiculous.

Other thoughts.

Probably N. Korea grandstanding against the US for the latest round of UN sanctions. It really is a completely crazy place, and TBH why any sensible Western person would want to travel there eludes me.

I would quite like to go there. At least you would be guaranteed that there wouldn't be too many English and Irish people there.

I like obscure holidays though. An island off Hiroshima was my last holiday and I'm going to an old Nazi town in Patagonia in May for my next trip.

Has anyone been to Bariloche in Argentina?

Interesting take on it. I'd say it's his tough luck. What an unbelievably moronic thing to do. Yes, by our standards, the punishment appears absurd. But we shouldn't be looking at it by our standards. He's in the PDRK. Could have been worse after all; he could have been blown to smithereens by anti-aircraft battery. I have little/no sympathy for all I think the PDRK regime is horrendous.

Any gamers or GTA fans will love this. Been watching it for about 25 mins now. Someone has hacked GTA v and let an AI deer run loose across San Andreas.
