I hope ted is ok. I hope he hasn't done something silly. If Jack said i was a worthless piece of shit, or whatever it was, i think i would find it v.hard to carry on with life, you know? Like, what's the point? I hope some of the subsequent messages of support catch him in time, before he is competely consumed by the black abyss of despair, but it's probably already too late. I'll start a RIP thread just to be on safe side.

I'm disinclined to move things to the Beef Thread for a few reasons.   First, I don't want to set a precedent.  Bletch and I would end up moving tons of stuff there, most of it landing there without context.   Second, Jack kinda Schitt on his own thread.   I can live with disagreement, but from where I was reading, that looked like an attempt at a burial.  I can even live with that; freedom of speech reigns after all, but I'm not going to start slicing and dicing threads just because they don't go the way the originator wants.   I would be here forever, and frankly, it's editorial responsibility I just can't be arsed with.  

No problem Pap. That is simply my misunderstanding then. From various things I'd read, I'd picked up the (erroneous) impression that the "Beef" thread was the place any personal stuff was supposed to end up. I'm sure I've seen comments alluding to things being 'moved to the beef thread' before -- and (obviously wrongly) concluded that this is what happens to posts when they go off topic and personal. My mistake.

you're apology is worthless as you've not only been rude again but this time you've been even ruder. You've written some unpleasant things in your last post about a fellow sotonian and to make it worse it's completely misguided and inaccurate. Then you have the temerity to ask for the insults to be moved to the beef thread..... Presumably including the last post of yours?

It was not a 'temerity' -- but rather, as noted above -- simply my misunderstanding of where such off topic stuff was meant to go. I wrongly thought that it was the 'norm' for such things to be moved there. My mistake.

But the Ted attack is misjudged, misguided and over the top.   Ironic, as the attack would fit right in on the Other Place, but not here Jack, no thanks. 

From my persepctive Bucks, it was not an 'attack' -- but rather a defence. I was responding to what I considered a disrespectful post. I also concede however, that I too was disrespectful in my response.

The most surprising thing for me, was that it turned out that I was not actually voicing what most others we're likely thinking themselves That, and the colourful array of avatars lining up (that represent a lot of people I have come to respect), voting in support of the notion that I have misjudged Ted's posts and over-stepped a line as a result, does however convince me that I must be missing some subtleties somewhere along the line, and that there must be a lot more to Ted's contributions than I've been aware of over time. I can only go on what my eyes show me, and my mind interprets, but for the amount of you guys that I respect to say I am wrong, then I can only conclude that I must be.

In light of that I read and re-read my initial reply to Ted again.

I am not the sort of person to tear people down, certainly at least not unless I feel very strongly that I am justified in doing so. I would hope my previous posts here up to now would testify to that. I still do feel that I was justified in responding to what I felt was a disrespectful post to me -- yet having read my posts again, I accept that I was needlessly harsh in places, and being a cunt in others. I am sorry for that Ted. Not that I'd particularly expect you to care, but I was out of line to be so scathing in my defence, and I do apologise to you for that; and also to those of you who took offence at the things I have said.

I shall leave any previous grievances there, and mention it no more.

 

Now, back to Victor being a cunt...

Fair play to you, Jack.   As I've found out, far easier to not wriggle and simply admit you've been wiping your arse wrong for 41 years.

I agree with Nutella-nuts.

Well played Jack.

He had a reasonable game today...still a few careless mis-directed passes but generally he bossed his part of the pitch against very poor opponents. Took the goal well.

Fuck. I can't get anything right in this thread. lou_facepalm2

There's that saying about shooting yourself in the foot...

I think I'll just metaphorically shoot myself in the head and be done with it.

 

And I'll call Victor a cunt every week if it helps.

Shoot yourself in the foot.   See if you can get whacked back to Blighty on a sick note.  Worst case scenario, the cunning ruse is tumbled and you're shot to death as a result, which to be fair, was your original plan anyway.

And I'll call Victor a cunt every week if it helps.

This is just irrational.  My restored lucky beard clearly inspired Vic to a good performance.

He was better, but I'd be worried if he couldn't look good against that bunch!

Shane Long looked like Maradona.

 Nice goal, but even so, my thought process went something like this.

"Eh? Eh? Eh? It's in! (god they're shite)"
