    This weekend only 1 game will kick off at 3pm on Saturday. Does anyone care about the loss of the traditional slate of fixtures which have been watered down over time by Sky, Setanta et al?

    Most of my enjoyment of football was listening to the radio on Saturdays bouncing between grounds for scoring updates and yes, the Vidiprinter during final score) always pitying the poor buggers who had their goals conceded spelled out in words such as Walsall 0 Chelsea 7 (SEVEN). Yeah Juke Box.

    Or waiting for your final score to come through and being gutted when you read Chelsea 2 (woo) Norwich 2 (feck ass Beasant).

    Or looking forward to the one big game on Sunday. FA Cup weekends were even better as we had more than one game.

    Obviously it's great for those of us now who can't go to games as we can see our boys week in week out without relying on 'Beamback in the Shed Bar for a fiver' or dodgy Scandinavian feeds at your local, or Stuart Hall's Man Utd obsession on Radio 5.

    But with so many live games we have reached saturation point and my enjoyment of any one game is much reduced.

    to be honest it alreadywas ruined because all the games used to be on the same day and same time but now footballers have got so poofy they have toi have loadza rest like they play on a wednesday and then the play on a sunday at like 5pm isnt sat 3pm enough time they are pro athletes its not like they are lard lads that cant play for long periods of time

    also i agree it was more enjoyable to watch the table changing throughout the games it was like villa are 1-0 up at old trafford and chelsea are 3-0 up at the bridge and its all changed at the top etc etc..... oh Manure have scored they are back ontop of the league etc...

    its sad. saturday 3pm kick offs were exciting, to have most matches at one time, and then watch MOTD in the evening.

    I'll give you one guess.

    Now, run along, you're starting to irritate me.

    People who irritate me on this board, find they can no longer post on it ;)

    I knew that eventually I'd discover something good about being in League 1. Most weekends all games kick off at 3 pm on Sat. :)

    For a grumpy old man such as yourself, that's 90% of the world's population. I truly feel like I am in privelged class.

    :D

    I have a bad habit of calling a tool a tool.

    BTW - thats a word I can no longer use at work, as it has been deemed of derogatory nature.

    I was calling certain people at work tools for over a decade, no problem.

    One of the gits went over to Europe last year for holidays.

    You can imagine his surprise when he found out it's meaning from an Englishman.

    Not pleased would be putting it mildly :D

    I've been using "tool" and "toolbox" for easily 10 years as well. I thought it's meaning was very common knowledge to Americans. In fact, I heard it hear before I'd ever heard it from any European.

    I used toolshed at work once and was called a racist. I said to a guy that if he did something so stupid again, I'd have to "take him behind the toolshed and beat him." Evidently a black guy overheard that and claimed that it was a racial comment because slave owners used to do it to slaves. He was making a big deal about it.

    Then again I once got told to take down my Fab Four calendar because a Puritan I worked with was offended by it. He claimed they were the devil. He didn't like when I told them maybe so except for John. Everyone knows he was the Walrus.
