Sad reflection on society, not just Rovers fans.

At least the club are outing it as an issue and seem to be trying to tackle it.

"We pride ourselves on having some of the best supporters in the country, but sadly that reputation has been tarnished on the last two Saturday’s"

Wow, so many mistakes in that sentence..

What's the point of those 'bibs' players wear in training? They look like bras.

Aren't they the ones that hold the heart monitors so they have to be strapped close to the heart for most effective use?

Yep and track a lot more as well like distance run etc. Think they where them during games as well now, they certainly did in pre season.

Bizarre. On that basis it's not too late to seek a Checkatrade Trophy wildcard invite.

A reboot of an Anglo - <insert country> Cup competition would be good one day.

Probably a better idea than the days when we would send a gunboat up the Yangtze, to encourage the Chinese to do a trade deal, whereby we take their tea in return for our opium.  Although I guess the likes of Fox, Johnson, Davis and Rees-Mogg, probably think that our shiny new aircraft carrier may be needed to a encourage a post Brexit trade deal.

Interesting short bit about homophobia and LGBT+ fans groups. I reported something at the CG once and they had a word with the man in question in a "once more and you're out" kind of way. I wonder how that would be different -/+ 10 years.

The Football League seem determined to flush the League Cup down the same toilet they've already sent the Football League Trophy:

I was sure this article had comments. I'm guessing it descended into pissing contest or something because the comments have not just been closed, but removed?!

Am I right in that, or was it another article on this Chinese draw?

There were a lot of reasonable comments about how it's just another nail in the coffin of football.

Don't think the BBC usually do comments do they? There's similar articles in the Times and Guardian today (and probably others) so may be one of those you're thinking of?
