Wasn't there a similar scenario many years ago with Cricket (was it IPL) when players were threatened with expulsion from county cricket and representing their country if they decided to play in that league? SBL

Are you thinking of the Kerry Packer era?

Putting my arsehead on I see it as businesses doing what they think is best for them. Given the levels of finance involved, the debt structures and global owners it's not a surprise. Quite why govt think it's ok for them to interfere in how these businesses wish to trade escapes me. It's nothing to do with their fans, they don't own these clubs.

As a footy fan who has become less and less interested in the premier league I don't care what they do. Give me Alty every time.

So long as PP is happy with it, I am. It's a massive season for us. PP has the final word.

Surely you've heard of the global economy? Billions of pounds out of the American or UK economy kill people in the third world just as surely as they kill people in britain and america. See my comments on Kenya. Among other things. In any case, Florida, which hasn't had severe restrictions, has not got more cv deaths than California, which locked down hard. Despite Florida having a  much larger eldery population. A worst case scenario might be 100,000 extra deaths with cv in the usa if they hadn't locked down (worst case mind you), and as there are expected to be 75,000 extra deaths from lockdowns in the UK (and that was last July), there would be far more people dying in the usa alone with lockdowns similar to the UK, plus the knock on effect to third world countries dependent on trade with western countries. For them, if the trade dries up, it's a matter of life and death. The UK has thrown hundreds of billions of pounds at  trying to control this bug, the usa probably far more. How much of that do you suppose they will get back?

Yes the same global economy that for decades has left the children in poor nations vulnerable to world events be that war, illnesses, economic issues or just about anything else. It's a horrible state of affairs.

The Church of England does not bless or carry out same sex marriages. As above they do not only allow the sinless to be vicars!

So, in one place you state, about those with Christian beliefs, 'those whose faith forbids homosexuality' and yet your faith permits homosexual vicars (and of course parishioners). Does that not make the Church of England contradictory in it's beliefs? It's not like a homosexual vicar is going to repent their 'sins' as they can not change who they are. If they are in a civil partnership, then they are surely ignoring one of the tenets of their faith? It's a total fudge by the Church of England and a ridiculous state of affairs.

That would be an ecumenical matter.

Got to hope we don't sign a Scientologist, that is one bat loopy fruit banjo set of religious beliefs.

Amongst the most vulnerable people on the globe. Quite how an estimated 2m Americans dying of covid would help the children of Chad I don't know.

Didn't work out. Going back sometimes goes that way. Quality in his short time with us. Given we can't score he's worth a look for next year.

Once religion is brought to the fore inevitably there are many potential issues..

Would a Methodist be forced to wear a Bet365 logo?

I am sure there was a lad who partially objected to playing in a Newcastle top with Wonga loans on it.

The club have stepped into an intensely personal area, and have set a very high standard to maintain. Good luck navigating through that without excluding people.

My favourite old school bogs were at Workington, about 20 years ago for a match against Bradford. Overgrown, and I'm pretty sure unchanged from the FL days. Bootham Crescent wasn't bad too. Incidentally, why did they never replace the toilets by the popular side? Used to be a snack bar there too.

Canal Street, Runcorn. Blokes could have a pish and easily watch the game over the bog wall.

You still can at Hurst Cross, Ashton, and not miss a second of the game.

Superb customer service.

I have no time for religion, if people want to believe something that's fine. What does concern me is the club should treat all faiths equally. Anybody put Jedi on the census form?

*SIGH* once again, for the people at the back...

Just because we're talking about ONE religion in this specific case (as it's Ramadan, no less) - doesn't mean we don't care as much about other religions. At no point has the club suggested otherwise, nor treated any faith differently.

That's great. So long as we maintain that approach, and that is the hard part.

I watched the you tube video, having spent a number of Ramadans in parts of the Islamic world it interests me, as does Jainism, Zoroastrianism and Sikhism. No complaints from me if we have the same treatment should we have a player of those or any faith. I don't believe any of them! Most are science denying nonsense.

The tragic circumstances allows me to watch the first half!



Glad to hear that you will now be able to catch the first half of the Sutton United game but I don't think that the peaceful death of a privileged 99-year-old man warrants the term 'tragic'.

Ooh. I thought JD was being a bit ironic using 'tragic'.
