Have you seriously just lumped Malcolm X and Gandhi together in the same bracket?

Embarrassing post. It's a good job Malcolm X, Martin Luther King and Ghandi didn't have your attitude.


Perhaps I am merely suggesting your (and others) protest needs a bit more thought, don't think any of those you mention called people of a differing opinion idiots or stayed at home.

Not sure the gravitas of the issue also warrants the comparison you make, but I'm sure that comparing a bloke and his kid attending a football game to struggles for independence and equality is not embarrassing to you in the least.

You're right. Football is far more important than that.

Yes. And I'm going to add John Lennon and Yoko Ono.

If no one turned up for the games then the competition would be scrapped. It really is that simple.

So your aim is to scrap a completion which as a youngster gave me one of my fondest memories, the '89 final?

As I said perhaps you need to think this through more.

Back then it was a proper competition, no reserve teams from the top division.

The competition in its current state is meaningless, good people are trying to get it back to the competition it once was, but people who insist on going are undoing all their hard work.

Scabs.

You seem to be flipping between scrapping the competition and changing it so I will let that and the Scabs comment go.

Not sure how people going to a game is undoing peoples hard work, staying away is not hard work, putting together a reasoned case for change is what will ultimately make a difference.

Support for that argument can be demonstrated by more than just not turning up on the night of a game.

I'm not flipping anything, except my middle finger at you scabs.

I don't want the comp scrapped, just the reserve teams removed. People have been asked to boycott games to make sure this happens next season.

Sherpa van trophy.  I have my 89 cup final shirt.

Lets face it though, Nat is right and this is a bastardised version of it suited to give big clubs reserve teams a bit more of a test.  They will be introduced in the lower leagues soon like in spain

Your own words, you are saying people should stay away and if they do the competition will be scrapped.

So are you arguing for the competition to be scrapped or just the U23 teams to be removed, as I said a bit more thought in your argument is needed.

awaiting next insult.

Both were non-violent nationalists, Gandhi for the independent Indian state and Malcolm X for the Black Nationalist movement.

King would be the odd one out if it weren't for the fact that both he and Gandhi sought to remain in their own country whereas Black Nationalism originally sought an independent state in Africa under the Marcus Garvey programme making Malcolm X the odd one out. 

WTF that's got to do with football is beyond me though.
