Premier League - Bunch of girls

Post by ratherton » 19 Dec 2010, 19:25

Why were all the games called off? Bunch of fairies.

Ipswich managed to play and we don't even have undersoil heating.

No gloves or snoogs in sight either.

Because it was dangerous for the fans not because the players couldn't play.

The referee makes the decision in the end, not the players.

No one gives a sh*t if all the Ipswich players and fans die in the cold. That's why.

Plus there could be snipers camouflaged in the snow at premier league games waiting to shoot c**ts like Rooney and Tevez.

No shops were closed, most (if not all) of the rugby fixtures were played.

Premier League jessies.

The pitches were in 100% condition so it wasnt the referee's decision to call off the games.

It was the police who said the surrounding areas were slippery. To be fair for the Manchester United game if you had 40 odd thousand cars in the area it could be carnage on the roads before and after the game.

I dont know how bad some of the grounds actually were and decisions like these are made far too willingly these days but the weather has been exceptionally bad this year.

Would the fact that some of the Championship teams etc had already had their fixture lists interrupted enough? Prior to our 3-0 win over Palace on the weekend, Forest hadn't played for three weeks or so...

I saw pictures from the emirates and I could understand it been called off. It was -6 with gale force wind and blizzards of snow. Was so intense when they were doing the pitch inspection that the camera outside the stadium couldn't actually focus on the Arsenal Badge outside, when visibility is that low I don't think it's right to play.

Not only from the players perspective, but from the spectators. If you're paying £40 for a ticket, you don't want to be sat in the freezing cold dying of hypothermia, without even having a decent view of the game due to snow.

Lech Poznan vs. Juventus just a few weeks ago, -18 Celsius and snow like crazy and the game went on. What's the big deal.

Check it out, especially late game highlights:

International play is a little different, though, Rzad. And certainly much harder to reschedule. I agree with klc and ratherton. I think the players should WANT to play in the weather, but as a spectator, if I pay for my ticket, I'd rather not sit there through it, much less try to get there in dangerous, slippery weather.

But thats the point, it can't be that dangerous and slippery or shops and restaurants would close too. They don't, its just football that is gay.

ratherton stop acting like such a hard ass.

Just because it was dangerous and slippery doesnt mean shops and restaraunts would close? but like scotty boy said...when you have 40+ thousand fans coming to a game...with the bad roads and weather it would be mayhem.

soccer is a sport...which was created for entertainment. Thats how they make money. They dont really care about if the players want to play or not. It comes down to the fans safety and their entertainment...or money

Sorry for my absence.

The refs make the call but in fairness i think Ratherton is trying to say that Prem players are jessies in general.
The 90s was the last I saw of consistent hard players and today it is becoming a rarity.

I love the Championship footy though. Great stuff, I hope more teams from the Prem take a leaf of their books and incorporate The Championships and belows passion and the Prems skill
