STANDING CONTINGENT APPEAL

This section of the board is an archive of topics from Walsall's recent history - e.g. Ray Graydon's sacking, the arrival and subsequent departure of Paul Merson. It also houses the tributes paid to Jolysaddler.

Is it right to stand up in the Tile Choice Lower Stand?

Poll ended at Sun Feb 17, 2013 9:20 pm

Yes, it doesn't matter how I effect other supporters I should be allowed to stand.

No, its unfair to other paying ticket holders to have their view restricted or force them to stand.

Even without the banners, so many of those evil fascists broke the law and encroached on the pitch that you still wouldn't have been able to see the corners. Shows how the descent to barbarism follows from breaking small rules.

So this thread is closing in on 11 pages.
Why don't you people who advocate standing stop chatting and actually do something to make your activities legal?
Get off your bot bots (tee hee) and actually do something.
The club could be petitioned to contact fsf.org.uk.
For instance see - http://www.fsf.org.uk/latest-news/view/ ... gn.php?id=

Those who hate morons standing up in front of them might also consider it.
Don't forget however that there is a never ending supply of morons so a standing area is no guarantee.

No flasks of tea or tartan blankets allowed? Might offset the library stand.

The period blood in this thread is amazing. You'd need a tampon the size of a grain silo to stem the bleed.

I stand up, and I don't block anyone's view, am I a moron? And even the ones that do, don't realise, they are too busy trying their best to encourage the players, something most sit down fans can't be arsed to do.

Close the thread anyway, what a waste of time.

Darth, you are a moron as if the rules say you should sit then you have to regardless of where in the ground you are or what views are being blocked not blocked.

Windowman, I wonder how many of the standing are season ticket holders and how long have they had their season tickets.

Thanks! The pitch looks a bit narrow there, though, doesn't it?

I can whine as much as I like. I have as much right to moan as any other poster. I'm glad to hear how many have got season tickets that's, what we want more support. It's no good having people who only come for 8 days to see what is's like then bugger off.

Don't you love it?
You could spend all your life arguing with Saigon-types - and for what?
Saigon, you've made an astounding 7,000+ posts and I challenge you to paste below even one which you've made which is of value.

Maybe everyone doesn't take everything so seriously, especially a tuppence ha'penny message board.

You seem to assume far to much about peoples character from what they write on here. A few of the people you constantly argue with (including Saigon) I know really well, and they are decent people. Some people use UTS to wind up other people, some to have a laugh, some to write serious thoughts about their football club, doesn't really matter does it?

I mean even you Whitters may be a decent person face to face.

I am I am.
I just get these red mists.
And they're getting more frequent since I got me a gun.
My knuckles are hurting bad from dragging on the ground.
Gonna call up my cousins from the swamp and we'll see what we can do about these-here standing contingencies.

Red mists are fine, it's when the voices in your head start asking questions you don't know the answers to, you have to worry.
