  1. Kyle WAS overweight but he is now looking leaner and fitter. I wasn't impressed by his apparent lack of interest at the start of his return but he is getting better every week. I agree it's taken a while but he is getting there.
  2. Definitely 2 points dropped but it was all self inflicted. In fact. For a wee while it looked like we were going to throw away the point we got. We should have brought Flynn and Connelly on well before we did. After we scored we didn't look like keeping the ball until Flynn was introduced.
  3. From the triple album, All things must pass. I still have this.
  4. Where did I say they weren't disproportionally discriminated against? I said they weren't alone in being so. I suggested that by highlighting the black lives matter it can disenfranchise some who would be more vocal against discrimination if it were back to the more general and all inclusive kick out racism message
  5. Don't know what will happen but I do think if Aberdeen score twice they'll win the game.
  6. And my simple point is, so does any section of the population. Look what's happening in China.
  7. Surely it will be Ross to Aberdeen, JG to Hibernian.
  8. That's my very point. All racists. Personally. I would rather none of it was necessary. But life is such that we get people who have a feeling of superiority or, strangely enough, more often, inferiority, that makes them want to indulge in the disgusting abuse of others because of creed or colour. To oppose this the rest of us need to stand together in the pursuit of decency. To this end I just feel that only highlighting one section is, as I said, counterproductive. ETA. This is my opinion and I know a lot of people will have different ideas on the issue so I'm stepping out at this juncture as I don't believe it would be easy to change most people perspective. As a last point I would say, although I don't necessarily always agree with the manner in which it is done, ALL peaceful attempts to rid the world of the archaic notion that one part of the population is worth less than any other has to be commended.
  9. Yet you continue to suggest that its only the colour black that should matter. And there are many white people, even in this country, who have been put upon. For a while the Polish community were abused for "stealing our jobs". Solidarity is precisely why we should NOT highlight one particular section of humanity.
  10. Your very first sentence suggests you take a simplistic look at racism. Do you really think that blacks are the only ones who are routinely discriminated against? Taking the knee is a singular gesture for ONE minority group. There are many minorities targeted by different groups. I feel singling out one section is counterproductive. Especially when it ignores other parts of society similarly maltreated. If you think I'm worried about how those malevolent idiots feel you don't, or don't want to, see my point. I feel we need to be inclusive when pointing out and trying to end racism in ALL its forms. I think we need to move on and look at ALL those who are abused and threatened. I suggested from the outset that it would have been more appropriate to say, as Slarti alluded to, "Black lives matter TOO". To suggest I was blaming the movement for the upsurge in racism is, again, simplistic. I was suggesting that it creates a target. It singles out a group. It does the opposite from its intentions. As usual you take a snippit of a post and run with it which takes it out of context.
  11. I've said for a while that this "taking the knee" has run its course and the recent apparent upsurge in abuse of high profile black and ethnic people may just be because it continues. In my opinion, highlighting one section of the population, even for the right reasons, is divisionary and, eventually, counterproductive. To some this slogan may be tantamount to suggesting that other lives don't matter as much. It could, and may well did, give reactionaries a platform to further divide. For certain. Ensure we are all treated equal as far as creed and colour are concerned but ensure we are being inclusive when condemning those who seek to persecute and harass those who they see as different. After all. We are ALL precisely that. Different. Rant over.
  12. I'll let someone else point it out Stricky
  13. Nope. I watched the game and I was not alone in deciding it was crap. It was absolutely NOT BECAUSE it was 0-0. Not surprised you didn't understand that. As for your stupid comment. It could be worse. You could be talking to someone as dull as yourself. hard to find that though.
  14. You could get that score "doon the racecourse". Doesn't mean it's a good game. Quantity doesn't mean quality.
  15. Their defences must be as bad as Saints.
  16. McGrath injury put paid to any lofty ambitions of another famous win. The first goal was terrible defensively and we collapsed after they got that spot kick. Even my Cellic supporting mate texted me and said, never a penalty. While they had nearly all the ball, we were just about holding on. Poor overall performance so we need to regroup and get ready for Aberdeen.
  17. Thanks. Problem solved. We have three STs.
  18. You can log in anytime and watch previous games or interviews. Sonny just beat me to it.
  19. Anybody help with a question about logging in to saints TV? My grandson has been able to watch with us up till now but that's not possible ATM. He tried logging in with his own ST info and he couldn't get access. He has a middle name on his ticket. so I told him to hyphen between all names. Anyone have a double barrelled name on the ST and, if so, do you use all three names for access?
  20. Does it really? What a fool you are.
  21. Anyone heard how things went on Monday with KD?
