    Remembrance

    Guy's with this weekend marking the 100 year since the end of WW1 I thought I'd see what peoples views were. I personally haven't missed a Remembrance Day Parade since 1987, in recent years it has been perhaps more poignant as I have watched friends getting on the plane home in wooden boxes. Is the RBL insistence that everything stops for two minutes at 11 o'clock on 11 November wrong? I think so, it's too much, often in the working week and therefore very much unworkable. Observing Remembrance Sunday should, IMO be the only act of Remembrance. Also, after this year should we focus less on WW1? Yes, it was utter carnage (so was Waterloo - and that also kept us free), but now it is not in living memory and is consigned to our history. I think that the date of 11 November should remain significant, and therefore the second Sunday in November should be the date of Remembrance for all who made the ultimate sacrifice for their country. Thoughts on a Friday?
  2. All I can say is... "Phew!" 😊

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    Strange, is that some kind of family deal? Even so I really think that football needs to address the cost of actually attending a match in this age of technological marvalities.

    Derby County v Aston Villa Match Thread

    I got the cheap seats, 4 of and it cost me £1 shy of £100 - and two are for under 12s!... It's not right!

    V QPR (A) Match Thread

    What time you thinking of getting there? The White Lion was pretty rammed (see wot I did) with Derby before the Charlton game in 2016.

    Tipping

    If you don't know this film you... should! apologies for any colourful language... Nice Guy Eddie: C'mon, throw in a buck! Mr. Pink: Uh-uh, I don't tip. Nice Guy Eddie: You don't tip? Mr. Pink: Nah, I don't believe in it. Nice Guy Eddie: You don't believe in tipping? Mr. Blue: You know what these chicks make? They make poo. Mr. Pink: Don't give me that. She don't make enough money that she can quit. Nice Guy Eddie: I don't even know a ducking Jew who'd have the balls to say that. Let me get this straight: you don't ever tip? Mr. Pink: I don't tip because society says I have to. All right, if someone deserves a tip, if they really put forth an effort, I'll give them something a little something extra. But this tipping automatically, it's for the birds. As far as I'm concerned, they're just doing their job. Mr. Blue: Hey, our girl was nice. Mr. Pink: She was okay. She wasn't anything special. Mr. Blue: What's special? Take you in the back and suck your dick? Nice Guy Eddie: I'd go over twelve percent for that. Mr. White: You have no idea what you're talking about. These people bust their ass. This is a hard job. Mr. Pink: So is working at McDonalds but you don't feel the need to tip them do you? Why not? They're serving you food but no society says "no", don't tip these guys over there but tip these guys over here. Thats ******** Mr. White: Waitressing is the number one job for female non-college graduates. Its the one job basically any woman can get and make a living on. Reason is because of tips. Mr. Pink: duck all that.

    Tipping

    I actually have strong views on this subject. The tip should go to the person giving you service ie the young waitress who may have just been dumped by her boyfriend etc. but still laughs at my pathetic jokes and smiles - not the chief in the kitchen who can if he so desires be as miserable as duck... And certainly not go in to the owners pot - nor should tips be put in a kitty and divided amongst all staff!

    Declining attendances

    So much of a clubs revenue is now generated by TV / subscription that they need to dramatically lower matchday prices to reflect this and generate more interest in actually going to the game.

    Commonly known phrases..

    Nah! My understanding is that it refers to 'Duke' or an old English (Saxon?) word Ducas. Both are terms of respect.

    RamsTV Feedback

    I hate the fact that the Radio Derby coverage only starts when the team comes out, which means that you have to close down listening to Radio Derby on the net when they stops broadcasting and log on to RamsPlayer... which can be distressing. I vehemently disagree with the fact that football league games can not be broadcast over the internet!
