Always seem to vanish after a couple of replies with the exception of these insidious Scotch football threads that , just when you think you'd seen the back of them, float back to the top like an unflushable turd.

I'm thinking specifically of the referees' strike thread and the El Hadji Diouf sending off thread.:tired

It's CUK General. People post about pretty much anything they like. If you don't like a subject, ignore it.

Probably something to do with the mods, and if they don't like football and want to tone down or remove the football posts, then that's their prerogative I would have thought.

Ease back on that. You clearly have not had a lot of experience with it.

I was at a childrens party on Sunday morning and started chatting to another dad.

'Going to watch the rugby this afternoon?' I asked
'No. We don't do sports' was the reply
'Homo' I thought

He appeared to read my mind. Can you read my mind pacharan?

Actually threads 'die' of their own accord when no one bothers replying in them and they fall off the first page.

Sectarianism is what keeps the Scottish football threads alive.

I suppose it's because most footy threads are about "big" matches involving Spurs, Arsenal, Man Utd and the like, which are inherently transient.

The threads I remember that last longer than that involve something more, like the two you pointed out, the Liverpool manager one, and the biennial England tournament post-mortems.

Does anyone here follow a non top division side? Or am I the only one?

Anyone here follow the likes of Barnet, Rochdale or Arbroath? Accrington Stanley? Borehamwood?

Light relief used to be the official place for sports threads but that was consistently ignored.

I'm a Gillingham fan but have been a season ticket holder at Crawley Town for the past three seasons. Getting my reward on Saturday with a trip to Old Trafford that makes it all worth it.

If not wanting to watch ruby was an infallible sign of being a homo, the UK population would have dwindled to almost zero about fifty years after William Webb Ellis first picked up that football. :rolleyes:

I don't think that's quite fair. I wouldn't class the banter we throw at each other on those threads as sectarian. Sectarian is the young Celtic lad getting his throat cut as he's walking home from the game just for wearing his scarf. Or the Rangers fan stabbed to death in a city centre pub by a Celtic fan for no reason other than he was a bear.

Too many people automatically label normal football banter as bigoted bile just because it involves Rangers / Celtic. I've seen and heard far worse stuff at a Man U / Liverpool game or a Tottenham / Arsenal game.

I'd have a drink with any of the Dhims on this site. They'd be buying of course.

Fair enough Incognito, but some of it can appear pretty vicious to neutral eyes.

To be fair 2 Scotsmen in a bar, both would probably die of dehydration waiting for the other to buy a drink.
