    Help ???

    Ok guys. I Thought about the unconscious Racism angle and my Brain tells me Oaky has got a point here. Even if unconscious Racism was a real phenomenon then how could the individual be at fault. His parents, peers, teachers, society, government, mates, partner and fellow forum members would have to bear the brunt of the blame for failing to CONDITION the poor individual for not being educated enough to function in a politically correct society where individualism and diversity must be recognised but never never mentioned because anyone could be offended. Then I thought Feck it and I googled it. People took the implicit association test to gauge their subconscious racism. Now the researchers behind the test admit it can’t always do that. Research says there are ways to reduce racial bias. Calling people racist isn’t one of them. So Oaky is correct on both fronts unconscious Racism is a flawed concept and calling people racist for using a witty pun is wrong And no one can argue because Google told me.

    Armour has chinks The writing was chinese Divs Armour has a chink in it. When I went to school that was a Pun. I think you are over thinking this !!!!!!!!! Long live free speech, Puns and the right to disagree. (oh feck I've used a Japanese ninja emoji. Someone might think it's racist if they don't know the difference between Japanese and Chinese Ninja's)

    I love how it's ok to call him a bastard but as soon as an adjective is put in front everyone wet's their Knickers. Am I missing something, were McGeady's parents not Married when he popped out? You're a bastard (fine) You're a [take your pick] Bastard - (Hang the racist) Surely the offence is calling him a bastard. We seem to live in a world where describing someone by their heritage/race/nationality is more offensive than calling them a bastard, paedo, terrorist, murderer, etc. All these people seeking the removal of all these adjectives from our language are surely doing more damage to our society as everyone will have to have a uniform, tag which is not deemed offensive or differentiates different people. We are on slippery slope which can only erode everyone's freedom and identity. Jail the Moron because his behaviour was unacceptable not because he has limited vocabulary.

    Eh! That's an example of moronic behaviour The incident starts off with what appears to be light-hearted banter between Saints fans and McGeady as he leaves Love Street stadium. (acceptable) And the abuse turns nasty when a voice cries out: “F*** off you micky b*****d.” (Totally unacceptable and asking for trouble) Bit's in brackets might help keep you from having a go at the poor Chinese person you woukld have a go at.

    Oan ye go big man. Dave King, Paul Murray , Barry Scott and the wee Asian guy whose name escapes me were playing golf at Royal troon. It might not have been their best performance but they were playing rather slow and the party behind them got a little frustrated at their delays. On the twelfth green one of the party behind Kings group found a royal blue putter cover and thinking it must belong to the Rangers Party he made his way to the 13th tee with the cover. He was thanked by the Rangers group who also commented that they hoped they weren't slowing down the progress of the party behind with their leisurely golf. The good Samaritan, Immediately replied. "It took you longer to play that last hole than it did to get out the Championship" Brought a smile to my face!!!!

    I won't give the offended an opportunity to moan but They also told a Golf story with a nice little anti-Rangers punchline which I' m willing to share. I'm sure you might even find it funny if your interested.

    Oh you tease! I knew someone would take the bait. It was a football joke relying on a legal perspective of Nigerian behaviour. You probably wouldn't get it but I laughed.

    Help ???

    It's ok I'm not offended. Chinks in people's armour was in great use in the days before any any English people even knew china existed. Me thinks you looking for offence where there is none. I was in the company of some noted Solicitors today who told a joke about Nigerians. Does the fact Nigerians are the butt of a joke make the solicitors Racist. The fact the cream of Britain's legal system are willing to tell such jokes in the presence of a Stranger. No matter how sound, suggests they are comfortable it isn't offensive. What if a Chinese person said Why do Scotsmen win horse races because they are naturals when it comes to JOCK eying for position. OH that's terrible how dare they call me a Jock. they are racist. Don't think so but maybe you do
  10. I doubled our family season ticket stakes and smashed trough the 43% level. Went from one to two Ha! Ha! 50% increase in sales. Second one was a student one though, 50% decrease in revenue. Looking forward to 6000 plus crowds, Fecking queues, Having to sit in my own seat, 3 hours to get a bovril, having to leave the pub early to get in. Ah f**k it COYS we're on our way.

    That was Fantastic use of the English Language. Helpmaboab is without a doubt a scholar of our toungue. chink1 tʃɪŋk/ noun a narrow opening, typically one that admits light. "a chink in the curtains" synonyms: opening, gap, space, hole, aperture, break, breach, crack, fissure, crevice, cranny, cleft, cut, rift, split, slit, slot "the sun had found a chink in the clouds" a beam or patch of light admitted by a narrow opening. "I noticed a chink of light under the door" Terrible use of our language. When the suggestion is the only inferiority issue is the security of our site which appears to be full of chinks racist ˈreɪsɪst/ noun 1. a person who shows or feels discrimination or prejudice against people of other races, or who believes that a particular race is superior to another.
  12. St Ricky has been pushing for a big increase in Season Tickets and expounding the benefits this would create for the club. What about the benefits to the Fan? Why does anyone buy a season ticket and what are the benefits to them? 9 days left and in the words of the clash “Should I stay, or should I go????” Yes, it’s nearly time for the early bird season ticket renewal. It’s not really a question of whether I renew it or not. That’s a given. Jack Ross and Gavin Reilly may also be pondering the question “should I stay, or should I go” but essentially, they are just employees of the club who might work hard and do a great job but it’s still their occupation not their hobby and whether they stay or not, I shall chose to plough all my hard earned cash into something I want to do and not something I have to do. A Season ticket is like a passport or a permission slip. It tells the wife match days are mine and I won’t be going shopping, sight seeing or undertaking any DIY projects on said days. It reduces nagging, huffs and football widow tantrums because once she knows the season ticket is paid for there is no point in fighting it. She just changes tac and exploits the feck out of match day expenses which costs me a fortune, but I get a nag free season. The game is only 90 minutes in the middle of a match day which is usually full of fun, travel and adventure. I get to travel up, down and across the country, meeting lots of likeminded people and usually having a drink with them. On the trips to Paisley I meet old mates or pub buddies. On my travels I make lots of new friends, acquaintances and drinking buddies. On away days I’m reunited with die hard, like minded Buds. We party, have a sing song and win, lose or draw it’s the day out that’s important. The season ticket is not just for entry to St Mirren Park. It symbolises commitment to the idea that match days are important, and Saints take priority over more routine, mundane pastimes that can dominate home life if you let them. “Should I stay, or should I go” relates to whether I try to move my season ticket seat which I haven’t sat in all season or try and oust the owner of the seat in the row behind and six along who hasn’t sat in their seat all season either because I’ve been in it. Whatever happens I’ll be there next year whether JR is there or not. The match day out is a great experience, hail, rain or shine, win lose or draw. Of course, it’s been great with JR in charge and winning every week and I’d love him to stay but it’s my team and it’s only his Job. So, no matter who is in charge and who is in the squad. I’ll be there. ST Mirren is for life not just Fergie, Smith, Hendrie, McPherson, Lennon and Ross seasons Not everyone has the time or means to go to all the games BUT If you can and want to go to the games, get a season ticket. It stops the clash with the wife when she tries to take you shopping or create DIY tasks on a match-day. Of course, you may have other reasons!

    The McGinn Question

    This all starts with John McGinn. I went to see Hibs a couple of times last season seeing they still technically had a Saints Asset in their squad. The thing I found perplexing was that despite Lennon being in Charge, Super John McGinn, who like his brother was better than Zidane, was still Alan Stubbs man which was indeed Something I just don't think I understood. Surely when a manager moves the new guy should declare his allegiance to the Gaffer and the fans like wise. Will Stephen and Paul still be Jack Ross's men or does Stubbs get to adopt them. What is the correct football etiquette here. If Stubbs is indeed Super John's man will John McGinn find his way back to the saints and likewise will Stephen hope a move to Sunderland is imminent. That aside. What do we sing next season regarding Stephen and Paul Are they Jack Ross's or Alan Stubbs men. Hopefully they understand just how important it is to get behind our new manager and quickly identify themselves as Alan Stubbs Men. Hopefully all you folks do too. We've Got McGinns, a pair of great McGinns I Just don't think you understand We're the ace of Clubs, they play for Alan Stubbs We've got Steve and Paul McGinn Alan Stubbs – Black and White Army Just a Thought???????

    New Manager Latest Odds

    Wouldn't me my first choice or even a last choice. He talks a good game but if he can't get Rangers promoted from the championship or win the diddy cup with all those resources at his disposal I wouldn't be too keen on him trying to stop us getting relegated never mind achieving Tony's Dream of premiership glory in 2019. St Ally, feck that, St Ricky would be a better choice than him.

    Paisley Saint Mirren

    After two long and agonizing days (OK, maybe we're being a little dramatic), we've finally learned what name Kim Kardashian and Kanye West have for their newborn baby boy. The famous pair revealed earlier today (well four years ago) that their son's godly moniker, one they just came up with, is Saint West. And while some may find their chosen name for their second child more than fitting (after all, it is the son of Yeezus), others might think Saint is a bit out there. So if two of the world's most high profile nutters can come up with a Saints name in two day's that only gives St Mirren's Black and White Army forum members until 1132am tomorrow to agree on a suitable name for their team or helpmaboab by the revelations of St Ricky they will be so dumb they can't even keep up with the Kardashians. Topic Started at 1132am yesterday by Ricky Kardashian

    Paisley Saint Mirren

    "OH.................................................................................. when the Saints, except St Mirin, go marching in" How would be announce results?????? Paisley Saints (excluding St Mirin or any religious ones ) 6 Glasgow Rangers (oop's gave a nod to the history there, should be The Rangers International Football Club Plc) 0 If we stick with the no religion ethos would that mean we could only sign players who No of course not those ideas are mad Just like this debate

    Paisley Saint Mirren

    Helpmaboab, This guy sounds like a Sevco bigot. Change the name it offends me!!!! I know lets call ourselves the Politically Correct Paisley Kicksphere team. Foot-ball is so incorrect. Foot sounds like something from the bottom and ball has too many gender connotations. We can't be named after a Monk that got one over on the King. I mean Monks make Buckfast and Royalty encourages true blue sectarian shit. Being named after a Monk that shafted the king is a definite no-no. We'll have to change the name of the Greenhill Road too because it might offend the true blue sections of Paisley. Then again if we did all that, SMTID wouldn't mean a thing. Helpmaboab What a terrible thought St Mirren is fine in my book
  21. I was obviously keen to renew my early bird offer this morning but wanted to enquire re changing my seat so I gave the ticket office a phone. No answer. I double checked the website and no info re ticket office opening times has been updated since 20 may. I phoned again. No answer. Do they close the ground during close season or has Ricky's campaign for 5000 season tickets got them so busy they can't answer the phone. I hope so. it would seem a little strange not to man the phones during the season ticket renewal period.

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    Confusion? St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott says Sunderland have made no approach for manager Jack Ross - and says reports that the Black Cats are close to landing their number one target are nonsense ‘unless there is some major skulduggery going on.’ Sunderland’s new owner Stewart Donald gave a radio interview to talkSPORT this morning in which he said the club has ‘agreed, literally, this morning, so we are drawing up contracts with the man we want. I’m expecting news on that very soon.’ Donald did not name Ross directly, but within minutes there were widespread reports that Sunderland were about to appoint Ross. And soon after Donald’s appearance on the show talkSPORT presenter - and former Sunderland player - Mickey Gray later tweeted: ‘Welcome to Sunderland football club Jack Ross. #safc’ But if Sunderland are indeed close to landing Ross, it appears to have come as news to St Mirren. Lifted this from Sunderland AFC news https://www.chroniclelive.co.uk/sport/football/football-news/sunderland-afc-news-live-manager-14692883 Jack hasn't even been mentioned by their chairman, It seems to indeed be FAKE news or Chinese whispers,

    Sunderland Speak To Jack Ross

    However, St Mirren chairman Gordon Scott has said there has "been no contact from Sunderland". He said: "Jack is on holiday. So unless there is some major skulduggery going on then it's nonsense. "To hold talks with Jack, we would have to grant permission, but we've had no contact from Sunderland at all." This is the take from the BBC website which suggests Jack is lying on his St Mirren towel somewhere on a sun lounger in the Med whilst GS is wandering about his kitchen still in his dressing gown and supping a coffee oblivious to all this 'Fake News' being regurgitated on Black and white army. Nothing to worry about here Lads......
