    old ilkestonian reacted to Needlesh in Rooney Change Number   
    More baalocks been spouted about this than any topic I can recall in recent years. 
    We're off to Stoke on Saturday to play a team financed by betting revenue, owned by bet365 group, in the bet365 stadium, who will be wearing bet365 sponsored shirts against a sea of bet365 sponsorship in a Skybet Championship fixture with our 32Red shirts on.
    Every rentagob spanner with a palm outstretched for a column or tv appearance fee has magically decided that now is the time to start moaning about gambling in football. 
    Is it a bit cheeky to give Wazza the 32 shirt? Yeah, maybe. Against the rules? No. Immoral or somehow damaging to society? Don't talk like a Bamford. It's all about the media doing what the media does, whipping up a non-story around a 'celeb' to sell copy. That's immoral. That's damaging to society.
    They can all take a long walk off a short pier. It'll all blow over by January anyway, as they're tearing the arse out of some other poor bar steward for financial gain.

    Wayne Rooney 32 is pushing it...but this is fine?

    I don't think gambling companies should be allowed anywhere near football sponsorship, but you should either allow it or not.

    Holding us up as an example is ridiculous.

    I don't like it, but I'm not going to accept Derby being singled out while we play in the SkyBet Championship and told to increase revenues year on year to make up for the growing imbalance with Premier League money, doling out massive payments even for the worst losers like Sunderland.

    That's true but more efficient staff would at least help a little - as for vending machines, great idea, I can remember going to Holland in about 1970 and being impressed by vending machines in the streets dispensing hot dogs and other similar things - surely almost 50 years on it's not beyond our capabilities! something has to be done to improve the half time experience for those that want to venture down into the concourse!

    I totally agree and another good idea but while we've got the existing system then we should at least expect the staff to give a damn and try and serve those waiting in a timely manner - from what I've seen and heard then many of them need a rocket up their bottoms - and on top of that, I wonder how much money dcfc are missing out on because of this slow and inefficient service.

    Apologies if this has already been mentioned but the first thing dcfc have to sort out for me is having enough competent/efficient staff at the bars for half time so that everyone who wants to be served can be served without having to miss the end of the first half or the beginning of the second - surely they must realise we are there to watch the footy and not to queue for half time refreshments! I used to go down for a half time wine (not whine) every match but haven't done that for over 10 years now due to the pathetic service by staff that clearly have no interest in getting you served in a timely manner (do they have any idea of how long half time lasts???!!!) dcfc and the company involved should be ashamed at this level of service! If it was an efficient service and a better quality of beer, wine, food and snacks I'd be prepared to pay a bit over the odds for it and may be even go to the ground earlier and have a pre match drink but whilst they continue to have crap staff serving crap food and drink then they'll not get a penny out of me!

    I am not expecting that whatever Boris said yesterday will affect what happens today..  He doesn't give a duck just says whatever it will take to get what he wants personally.
