    David got a reaction from Inverurie Ram in Wayne Rooney   
    Ok, first of all I want to thank those that have respected the mods wishes over the Rooney photos, they have been acting on the forum guidelines which I put in place and what they moderate to.
    Now Google ads help towards the funding of this forum, they have their guidelines which I must respect to show their ads on the forum in return for money which helps cover costs to stay online. 
    The forum is that large now, we cannot stay online without creating revenue through adverts. No adverts no forum it’s as simple as that.
    Over the years we have had several warnings, some of which threatening over nudity and other things, warnings which have been over content which we felt was ok to leave up at the time.
    For example we had to remove the photos from Conehead John’s sons operations where stitches were showing as it was classed as sensitive content, go look, you won’t see any of those images and that was particularly tough job explaining to John privately. We’ve had pictures of bikinis that have also had to be removed, nothing more than you would see in a tabloid newspaper that is also funded by Google ads.
    The truth is, us “small” websites are under a different set of guidelines than the big sites that generate double figure million clicks a month. 
    It’s frustrating and equally frustrating when members do not appreciate that it’s not the moderators being overly aggressive with the moderation, be it remove humour or in this case protect Rooney. 
    I can tell you now for a fact as I have just read the discussion in the moderation room before posting this, they have removed the photos due to Google and they acted correctly and have just thanked them.
    I have not been in contact with them all day and have only signed into the admin panel to verify new members.
    This was a scheduled day off for myself and had no intention of coming online, but here we are in another daily episode of being a Derby County fan.
    Now this might sound harsh, but if any member cannot respect that we are under strict Google guidelines and the photos cannot be posted, please just sign out, take a few days to try and understand.
    This forum is used by many fans, fans that can respect and understand our position whilst also appreciating the platform we offer, I will not and have instructed the moderators not to let anything jeopardise the future of this forum which I fully intend it to have.
    Finally, I have said to the moderators just now, we can allow you to discuss the situation, that is fine, but you must not post the photos. 
    Whilst this isn’t to protect Rooney, please also respect our rule regarding profanity towards ANYONE connected to the club, be it the cleaner, kit man or manager.

    Today was HOT, I was melting, literally melting. The game? Yeah, weather was nice.
    Already hints of a toxic atmosphere, some strong words coming out the stadium. Some will never learn. 
    Was decent atmosphere though before they scored, got to be said, the goal changed it massively.
    Not a great situation I know, but still, pre season is pre season.
    The stadium? Looks great, but the facilities were crap, toilets were in a HGV container, they had 2 kiosks, 2 people to serve in each, one food only and cash only, the other alcohol only and card and they were slow, like Pride Park is rapid compared to them. 
    Got to be honest, I felt a little uncomfortable with Covid and that, only saw the odd mask and as the game started people piled in around us to the point we couldn’t move.
    The sun blasting at us I went out to watch the game from the corner just outside with the beer to get a bit of space.
    Would have preferred to go in the seating area but there you go.
    Anyhow, got some pics, @DarkFruitsRam7 legged it to the toilets as soon as we arrived as expected.

    I said to my missus, this is a cry for attention, but you have to treat it with genuine intent, if you don’t and he went through with it, I would be left asking myself questions for a number of years.
    Unfortunately I think we will see suicide numbers go up due to this pandemic, the Humber Bridge had to temporarily close for pedestrians, they had security 24/7 at both ends due to an increase in suicides off the bridge.
    Has the pandemic, the way it’s been handled created new mental health issues, or has it pushed those who were already struggling over the edge.
    The impact will be discussed for years, maybe our lifetimes. I don’t envy anyone on both sides of the government. 
     
    I’m fine though thanks, I have no doubts I did everything right, and I’d do the same again tomorrow.

    Probably shouldn’t post this. But tonight I’ve had to deal with my cousin posting on Facebook wanting to take his own life with long Covid.
    100 miles away, having to phone the police, get them round is not how I planned my night.
    Scary how it’s messing good people. Take it seriously please.

    David got a reaction from StockholmRam in Is this the most depressing period you’ve experienced as a Derby fan?   
    No, but it’s clear the club have some bridges to rebuild with the fans.
    Despite not achieving promotion we have had some real good atmospheres around the club, whilst some may find it hard to believe, we’ve been lucky. 
    Many clubs out there that have gone years without a sniff of any kind of cup or promotion to enjoy.
    I don’t want to get into the blame game or the EFL’s role in the position we’re in, but it’s not a great situation.
    Reading across social media, seeing so many fans feeling disconnected is not great, and as I say we need to see bridges rebuilt, ideally starting before the first game of the season. 
    I’m not one to call for answers from the club, I would rather they spend every hour working on improving the situation as we have too many outstanding issues that need resolving.
    Saying that, I do feel like the club need to host a fan forum asap, whilst some see these as nothing more than PR stunts, some good PR is needed to lift the spirits.
    I fear the atmosphere for the opening game could be extremely toxic if we go into the start of the season under so many question marks.
    As fans though, we need to play our part no matter how hard it is, we have to get behind the players we have and Rooney, dial back the criticisms and as cliche as it sounds, be that 12th man/woman.
    If we can’t do that in our hour of need, then why are we even here? 
    Toxic atmospheres, attacking the club will not help the situation at all, it just won’t, so the question is, how much do we love this club? Right now is the time to show it and come together and try to focus on the positives and help create some optimism going into what will be a difficult season without a doubt.
