#3060446 Sponsorship outrage!

Posted by Griff on 25 January 2015 - 10:17 AM

There are no EU regulations pertaining to e cigs - at present.  . 

 

You said there were EU regulations available to meet.

 

Now you say there aren't.

 

We can't really rely on anything you say, can we ?

Cars dont have ashtrays anymore

 

Yeah, it's because it's dangerous to smoke when you're driving.

When it was proposed to make smoking in cars illegal there was an outcry from the smokers' lobby.

 

You can't drive safely while you're on your mobile phone.

 

You can't drive safely while you're smoking.

 

We pander too much to these addicts.




#3056206 Alex Mckinnon Stands Up

Posted by Griff on 16 January 2015 - 08:52 AM

Fantastic news that Alex McKinnon's rehabilitation appears to be progressing so well.

Sad that the Aussie media seem unable to respect his privacy.

 

 

That's really great news.  So pleased to hear it. :)

 

Not sure why you're posting this, Railway End, at the same time as criticizing the media for not respecting his privacy.

 

Matthew 7:5 springs to mind .......

The only question that has been raised in terms of long term e cig use is that of the effect on the user of inhaling vapour over a period of time.  That is the big unknown. 

 

 

 

Quite. My point entirely.  In the meantime, stop telling us how good your drug addiction makes you feel




#3055640 Sponsorship outrage!

 Yet here we are, some people making a big song and dance about something that is of no risk to anyone else but the user......

 

Remains to be seen, obviously.  Inhaling slate dust wasn't harmful in 1922 - according to Lord Penrhyn - in fact, it was positively beneficial and he challenged anyone to prove otherwise.  Owning slate quarries, of course, may have coloured his judgement.  Either way, he wasn't seen working in them too often, funnily enough.

 

Menthylated cigarettes were recommended by doctors in the 1940s and 1950s.  Today, we're a bit wiser.

 

Maybe a few years from now, we'll be wiser about e-cigarettes.  Who knows ?

 

We take your point, Saintslass.  You're addicted.  You can't give them up.  Spare us the encouragement to take up your addiction.

Well let's not let facts get in the way of a good discussion eh???

:laugh:  :laugh:  :laugh:




#3027073 Not having neutral refs makes the sport look like a shambles!

Posted by Griff on 04 November 2014 - 02:18 PM

We're just soft on the Aussies.

 

We should just tell them that we won't stand for it.  These Aussie refs have different rules to us for a start.

Looks OK at the moment.




#3022487 Sheffield to play at Doncaster in 2015

Posted by Griff on 29 October 2014 - 03:27 PM

i am not sure this is the best option moving to a different town that already has an established team there,

how many eagles fans are going to make the journey to Donny,

would a one year deal with one of the 2 union clubs in Sheffield be a better option, i dont know what standard these 2 grounds/stadiums are but i know Abbeydale Park has a stand and floodlights,

 

They make Owlerton look like a palace.




#3022067 England to wear special hooped kit for Australia clash

Posted by Griff on 28 October 2014 - 06:52 PM

The real Rorke's Drift was in Sydney.

 

There was another one, I believe.




#3017309 2015 Fixtures

Posted by Griff on 21 October 2014 - 09:34 AM

Why the hell can't they ever get it right - one home game in April, but three in May -  which will most likely be the month I take my holidays. Is it such hard work to give clubs alternate home and away fixtures ? :rtfm:

 

Yes. It's impossible.  If they did, you'd never play the five teams who were at home when you were at home because they'd always be home when you were at home and away when you were away.




#3009556 Telegraph article on Billy Boston

Why hasn't he got a knighthood ?

Thanks always interesting & informative....

 

Well, thanks, Parky.  But it's merely my interpretation of the information available.

It's this kind of attitude that holds out game back. What we should be doing is inviting the landed gentry so we can get some good PR. Yeah that'll really have a tangible benefit.

You sir, are a dinosaur, buying tickets and the like.

 

I tug my forelock to you, milord.
