I dislike opening up the forum to 'Non-Fighters'. I am sure that I am not the only one who enjoys the pseudo elitist aspect of the Debate Forum.

Besides, we may end up with people who don't understand the concept and decide to flame the judges, or 'continue' the debate with one of the Fighters.

I much prefer people who see the Forum, decide that they want to 'up their game' and then take that step to introduce themselves and start a match to get involved with what we have going on here.

It should be something that people have to earn...

No, no - it's real football, we should know, we invented the game and the word, and we actually use our feet to play the ball - hence football


Not a load of nancy boys dressed in body armour and helmets playing a bad version of rugby, where I am constantly asking the questions

What have they stopped for this time?

Why are they changing all the players around?

Why is it called football when the ball is hardly ever kicked?

Is rugby too rough for them?

Why are there so many officials, is it some kind of employment programme?

Why are they drinking so much "gatorade" they haven't done anything!

And so on and so forth.

I hope this answers your query.

As long as your offering I think I'm in the mood for a top notch Gin.

Although I don't know why....

I'm just going to leave the bottle, I figure anyone who is ready for AM dinking doesn't need a glass -- it can come in handy for brandishing in the off chance you're a mean drunk.
I'm for drunks of all stripes.




I'm also for being elitist. I think anyone who wants to join-in has to go through the same terror and intimidation, just like the rest of us... NO FREE RIDES!

If you like.

I think they are leeches and that we shouldn't be paying millions a year to support one of the richest women in the world and her german/greek inbred family of borderline haemophiliacs.

Who else is there to throw rubbish at? Gordon Brown looks like he's made out of Granite. When I lived in London, I'd play darts with a large poster of the Queen. The darts would land with a dramatic crunch, especially when they hit a hollow spot in the wall right behind her eyes. Now I live in Rome, I'd have to strap a picture of Berlusconi to the toilet seat to achieve the same levels of stress-relief.

It's impractical.

Just chiming in for the heck of it....

I echo MS' sentiment about limiting commentary of finished debates. In here we can say what we wish, it IS a pub after all (T&C being a consequence to consider, rather than a restriction) but out there, if I am commenting on someone's debate you can bet that I respect the work and effort that goes into the task. Opening the commentary to unrestricted access would invite a lot of content that could detract from the beauty of these pieces.

I think most here will admit that debate, as we have silently defined it amongst ourselves, is something to be proud of. I will shamelessly hold to that standard - as long as this liquor holds out anyway.

PS - hey MS, that smiley looks more angry than mean.
Anybody out there seen one with a smile AND furrowed eyebrows?

True that...I think that we are going to have to imagine the furrowed eye brows when we see 'incensed' commentary...

Can't say that I have. The regular smiley looks like it's mocking everyone instead of simply…smiling.



Yep, that's a brown-nosing grin if I've ever seen one.

I'm so sorry to all the fighters I haven't posted yet.

I've had trouble focusing all day on anything for more than five minutes. I went to see the doctor about it earlier and he says it is because of the anesthetic still in my system.

I am trying though, every time I try to stare at the computer for more than a few minutes I get really dizzy, so it's going a little slow.

Plus the cone around my head is also a little distracting.

My bad! Just saw your drink order, seven hours later... (Where's Dingbat when you need her?) I hope you still want your kombucha -- because this is some nasty business...





When I get done here I will be properly serving your beverage on the patio... yeah, that's right, you guys have patio.

I found the door to it behind that mountain of slightly soiled pornographic magazines stacked outside the Men's room (shudders).

... And I think it is only fair that Dingbat be the one to tackle cleaning that place up as I am handling her drink orders.

Fair greetings, barkeeper!

I shall start my evening with a Shanty to be followed with Bailey's on the rocks.

Great job!

By the way...Good Debate...

A review of the published literature on the safety of kombucha suggests no specific oral toxicity in rats

"Kombucha." Wikipedia, The Free Encyclopedia, en.wikipedia.org...


Whew, that's a relief! I'm sure it's just fine for people, then, too! Sounds delicious, and safe!



Perhaps a cocktail: Kombucha with Kahlua and Pucker, a dash of Rumplemintz, and a single drop of Tabasco?



Edit: to clarify a not-slight
