Does anyone know who the guy is that clearly sits just below the TV gantry and swears like trooper?

It's incredible how many expletives he gets through in one game. BT/Sky are never done apologising "if you heard some colourful language there" Reckon they don't have to apologise so much at any other ground.

I'm a fan of the swearie, so it doesnae bother me, but it got to the point last night where BT almost gave up apologising as they would have spent more time doing that than commentating on the game! Sutton even said at one point "I wouldn't like to attend games with my kids if that guy below us was sitting next to me".

So come on. Someone must know who it is. It might even be you.

Thing is, we've tended to get quite a few home televised games. I'd be worried that might start to dry up if broadcasters feel there's a risk there.

(For the record, I f**king love swearing too and am not in the slightest offended by it, nor do I think anybody should be. However, broadcasters take it ridiculously seriously.)

The blood was certainly up last night amongst our support , relegation dogfight against a notoriously dirty team/ almost like a cup final, so when someone like Danny gets basically assaulted by Mackinnon , then the blood is really up especially when Collum exacerbates the situation by booking Captain Fantastic . Then we have 99 , who fouls big Gary about 6 times before he finally wipes him out and we get further ineptitude from referee Collum who seemed to be at a different game as he let Woods continually time waste as well . So , considering that men have traditionally went to fitba' to vent their spleens , I'm not surprised someone was mouthing off last night , l could hear it all around me and see veins sticking out of necks  too . . unless . . you think the guy heard on the telly is ramping it up for the show. .

Can they not just move the microphone? 

Problem solved.

If that happens then good! If we have fewer home televised games then we'll have fewer Monday nights and Sat/Sun mid-day ko's.

We have had SIX home league games televised so far and not one single away league  game (albeit that will change on Saturday).

I wonder how the home versus away live game stats stack up for the other 9 non-OF clubs.

I live hunners of miles away so I like it :P

Was there not a story that the TV production crews loved our ground because it's easy to get to /leave and has decent facilities for them?

Didn’t Alba have to delay the rebroadcast of a game we played at Inverness (or Dingwall). The game was supposed to be shown at tea time but was delayed to after the watershed because of “foul language”. Now I don’t have a word of the Gaelic in my head but I wouldn’t call it a foul language.

It's ok,  he's claimed that he's giving up his season ticket.

If he wants to attend our games with his kids then he’s got the Family Stand. No swearing in there.

Swearers are more than welcome in the other three stands. It’s just bad positioning of the tv gantry, our language wont be any worse than a number of other clubs.

Sectarian bile is acceptable to Sutton but not a sweary here and there. Maybe the guy in W4 should render a chorus of The Soldier's Song for him.

I sit directly in front of the camera gantry...I can honestly say I had no idea the fuss that had made until half time and don't remember any great sweary sweary more than usual? As has been said above Accies battering us and Collum being Collum...no wonder there was f**kin swearing! If a shout of 'just f**kin score son' was heard when Kyle got the ball at the end was heard - that was me and I am proud of it!

The big furry mic hings were moved I think in the first season we were there, they were put up higher and slightly further along from ma pal Darn who has  a very loud voice always haha. Bigoted bile no probs fuzz it out...saints fans - bad swearies. Gies peace.

They seem to somehow manage it for 50,000 bigots giving it "f**k the pope and the IRA" every week at Ibrox. The technology exists.

We get paid the same amount from the league regardless. Money isn't paid out for getting an extra game televised unless its the cup. The whole thing is set up so they can televise all the bigots games plus Hibs playing the Edinburgh bigots too. Actually, last night was the only family friendly match they'll show all season! f**k em.
