Henry Cooper was the same. I'm not doubting he was a nice bloke but was there ever an interview where he didn't mention putting Casius Clay down in 1963??

Yes when he was moaning about his defeat to Joe Bugner. Point taken though.

The BBC are actually taking the ******* boat race seriously. Ffs.

In the left boat some over privileged American tall blokes will be rowing against a boat on the right with some over privileged posh blokes.

They both narrowly won their semi finals against Peckham Collegiate and East Powys technical college respectively.

I always have a cheeky reverse forecast bet on the race and win every time.

A relative of ours rowed in the reserve (Goldie/Isis) race a couple of years ago.

He'd hardly rowed before going to Oxford, but was sporty. It takes huge dedication and teamwork...and no, he wasn't from public school.

It's less cliquey than it appears, and the sport has races for many categories, including oldies. But the media tends to focus on this race of powerhouse students.

Nothing wrong with the sport Yoda. It's the event and the media coverage which grates so much.

If a doctor asked him what consistency his shit was this morning he'd probably drone on about the shit he had after scoring a hat trick in the 1966 final.

Don't really blame him,it's sections of the Wet Spam fans and the media who keep harping on about it

I had no idea they rolled out Geoff Hurst for the EUROs. 1966 give it a rest ffs.

Talking of 1966 has anyone seen an American made programme for Discovery called Natural Born Outlaws? Two episodes were about The Krays and The Richardsons. The actors they had playing Reggie Kray and Charlie Richardson were not only the worst actors ever seen on television but had the worst London accents, totally cringeworthy.

Which annoyed me.

Wow, that is annoying :angel:


What was once annoying...
Our phone number used to include 550630.
Innocuous you may think, but, BT had introduced a system where you could be sent a wake-up call by dialing some number plus 55 and then the time you wanted waking. If the user missed the first bit we got a call, often late at night.
It took a while to figure out what was happening.
Bloody annoying.
Hopefully some buggers missed meetings by over sleeping when it didn't work.

Quite possibly, but not to be confused with a transaction fee, which is stated what that covers.

Once you get the infrastructure in place it's not rocket science to alter the process for different events. Let's say 70k x 2.50 = 175k for our semi + 175k for the other one = 350k for both semi finals from booking fees for one weekends events. I suspect it's less of the former and much more of the latter of the 2 areas you mention.

Their wage bill is the same all year round plus cost of office's, postal etc. I hate the fee as much as anyone but like most things we pay for if you strip it back it's usually nowhere near as unfair as you might think. A bit like cab fares. We all raise our eyebrows but the bloke driving is paying for radio, tax, huge insurance, fuel, maintenance and trying to earn a wage. It's amazing they are so cheap really.

Dunkie 28-03-2016 06:27 PM

operating costs and margin. they only have one of the semis. strip out the VAT and it really isn't much of a margin. businesses do need to make a profit, even when dealing with palace fans!

WorthingEagle 28-03-2016 07:01 PM

Fine the ticket sites need to make money, but I'd rather they took it out of the headline price before passing it on and make that bigger. After all, the sites work for the vendors, not for us so why are we paying the fee?

Dunkie 28-03-2016 07:11 PM

we would still be paying if the ticket was priced higher to incorporate the agency costs. swings and roundabouts. the club could pay the agency to sell our tickets, but i would imagine a zero cost option is preferred. in fact there is even a possibility that the agency would pay for their business.

Just how many people do you think are actually employed in processing the order, payment and then issuing a ticket? :D

Let me give you a clue, I own a business that holds the sole agency for certain - admittedly comparatively small beer - events. If you buy over the Internet then the number of people processing your transaction, printing the tickets and sending them out is, err, none.

HTH.

People getting overly aggressive and defensive about the behaviour of their dogs.

Saw a dog off the lead in the park yesterday run up to another dog who was on a lead and start fighting. The dog on a lead was at his owners feet sitting at a cafe. The woman who owned the dog running around was asked to apologise and went crazy. Starting blaming the guy with the dog on a lead saying it was all his fault. Everyone at the cafe was dumbstruck at her reaction.

What was it doing off the lead in the street anyway? Stupid woman.

Personally if I'm out in the forest walking the dogs and they are on the lead if I see another dog off the lead I let mine off, as its more dangerous to keep them on. Not really wise to do that outside a cafe though.

People leaving before the final whistle when the scores are level or there's one goal in it I find inexplicable. But I defend anyone's right to storm out when we go 0-3 down with 5 minutes left of a rubbish performance. And surely we haven't got to the point where we're getting annoyed by people arriving a bit late from the bar; it's a venerable British footballing tradition.

Its ******* annoying when you have no leg room and you have people squeezing past you when you are trying to watch the game

SA Eagle 29-03-2016 02:01 PM

The only problem I have with those that leave early is that as soon as something happens in the game they decide to stop on the concourse or walkway and block the view of those that want to stay. If you want to leave early just **** off out the way.

There's a very fine line between: "You paid for your ticket, if you want to miss some of the entertainment that's your choice" and interfering with the entertainment of others who have also paid for their ticket.

There's a very wide line between paying to watch Palace play Leicester at Selhurst and Cumberbatch play Hamlet at The Barbican.

On second thoughts, there's probably not much difference in the two ticket prices nowadays so you might have a point.

As a dog owner, I agree. That's why I carry a blade when walking in the woods with other dog owners,...for protection.
The same can also be said for children whose parents refuse to take any responsibility for their child's behaviour. When they fck something up , they always have the whiny retort of 'Think of the children'

Mr Blind will doubtless deliver a lecture on the necessity of increased merchandising income streams in the modern game.

You appear to be confusing me with some idiot cunt like yourself.

You simply could not be more wrong on that point if you actually tried, which would at least be something for you on here. :)

I will laugh heartily if he was referring to Danny Blind.

It's always good to see somebody taking an obvious joke in good humour.

I honestly completely missed the "obvious Joke" in your post, and if that is what it was, I apologise unreservedly for my response.

Muscles!!!!

Bloody muscles! Back, neck....whatever! One minute you're as right as rain and the next, you grab something and bend over to grab something and that's it, you're in fooking agony and laid up for a few days with spasms. Muscles are designed to keep you upright and flexible so you don't fall over. F--k that shit, I'd prefer to fall flat on my face than have sharp shooting pains and make you look like you're walking with a melon shoved up your anus for a week or two. Anyhow, yeah, muscles - bastard things!

Blind_Eagle 29-03-2016 11:01 PM

And I've subsequently just seen your rep comment:-

"The gloriously satisfying sound of a raw nerve being hit."

Some "obvious joke" then. :D

Would it be considered impertinent to withdraw my apology and amend my original comment to read "lying, idiot cunt?

Arnica tablets are great for muscle injury. Melons are nice with Parma Ham, but not after you've had them for a couple of weeks.

I couldn't give a shit. The exchange is here for all to see in black & white. If you think most people would consider my posts to be an angry attack on you personally rather than a sarky joke, that's up to you.

It's only here for all to see as I posted your rep comment. :D

Anyhow, I guess you posted that before you checked your pm's.

Having the sore throat from hell and body aching even more than usual. It would be nice if the weather could make up its bloody mind too.

Swear filter not working yesterday? - the Mod-power is strong with this one.

The same can also be said for children whose parents refuse to take any responsibility for their child's behaviour. When they fck something up , they always have the whiny retort of 'Think of the children'
Yeah, tell that to Gary Glitter and Adam Johnson :D

A dog is a domesticated filthy animal that licks it's own ar$e, jewels etc and sh1ts where it wants.

A child is a human being.

Annoys me that people think one is a like for like substitute for the other.

Let me give you a clue, I own a business that holds the sole agency for certain - admittedly comparatively small beer - events. If you buy over the Internet then the number of people processing your transaction, printing the tickets and sending them out is, err, none.

HTH.

The system might do all that automatically, but they do still need to employ people to manage and maintain that system. So whilst many of the actual processes are automated, there are certainly still employment costs. The whole process doesn't just work by magic. And that's not even taking infrastructure costs into account, which must be very high. Just maintaining PCI compliance at the level they'd probably need could cost hundreds of thousands.

Can't believe I'm sticking up for them, but anyway.
