Lets get back to Football

Postby mm3260 » Mon Oct 12, 2020 5:05 pm

wouldn't it be nice if the only topics discussed here were of a purley footballing nature and not these neo political post that cause division and derision.

I have had my fair share of political posts but i think this board has descended into a cesspit of opposing political/idealistic views and i'm as guilty as the next person.

Lets keep it to Football and Football only and remove discussions about BLM Antifa Conservative and labour etc.

Post about transfers or rumours, players, manager etc.

Stop this nonsense that has overtaken the board

On the first page at time of writing 68 posts of 83 are purely football related.

Thats over 80%. Why not just take part in those and ignore the rest?

The title of this Forum is " Football discussion forum" so 80% football posts is not a good percentage is it. it also implies that 1 in 5 post are not really related to football. Why do we have people arguing over Brexit, taking the knee, covid_19, blacks killing blacks so its their fault etc etc. Are you able to turn a blind eye to things you see in your life that you may find distasteful and wrong.

Age and financial status has nothing to do with this post and you must be some special kind of stupid to link them to this. Those remarks are an example of the standard of debate and level of education shown by some posters.

Forget the politics and talk about Cardiff City FC and their interest. Surely that is something we all have in common.

Are you real, the joke is not lost on me but the derision of my post is. So here i am asking to keep it about football to stop all this snide stuff and someone ridicules it and you hoorah it. If you did need intelligence to understand a joke then most comics out there would be skint.

This board has become a place where people are spouting views that have nothing to do with football and Cardiff City but instead they create conflict. You may enjoy all the vitriol it brings but i don't see what your 20% that aint football related posts have to do with CCFC.

Put a woosh up if you wish but please don't suppose that i didn't see the pathetic attempt at ridicule contained in the joke. Maybe the signing of Robbie Fowler has more place for that joke .

that's all i say to you , "fella"

I have had my fair share of political posts but i think this board has descended into a cesspit of opposing political/idealistic views and i'm as guilty as the next person.

You are correct, you are as guilty as anyone; just as certain individuals are equally guilty of perpetuating/elevating a certain carbuncle that has attached itself to this Forum

However, whilst not wishing to curtail the topics covered on this Forum, I do agree that the political ones seem to be more populated than the football ones for some time now and it is having a negative affect, as many good posters no longer get involved or are less involved (note the same group of posters on most threads)

Still some good ones out there, though :thumbright:

fair share ? i would imagine its the majority were non football... and truth is you only have to post on a football thread to elevate it above the political ones that you do not like..
