    This gets me every time!
    People should be grateful for what they've got, and whilst there's always room for improvement, be careful what you wish for. 
    I recommend listening to some of the other local coverage around the country, it's abysmal.
     
    We have been blessed at Derby to have really good presenters and summarisers, and there will always be those you prefer. I used to love Ian Hall and thought his analysis was brilliant, and given the time he'd been out of the game, his insight was spot on and it was very hard to find any mistake he made. As a double act, his knowledge covered Graham Richards bluster and eccentricity, but I can recall listeners criticising him!
    I remember Ted McMinn and Ross Fletcher, which, knowing Ted, I couldn't believe he never swore on air!!! Ross was a great professional.
    Colin Bloomfield was almost bullied, criticised for his "camp" voice live on radio! Think he worked with both Dean Sturridge and Gary Rowett. Studge was slated for being negative, even though we were dismal as a team.
    Roger Davies was the one I didn't want to listen to, as he said one thing on the radio and a different thing in private (off-air) which made me feel he was highly disingenuous!
    As for Ramage, I think he's great. His vocabulary is limited, but that isn't enough to hang him! He describes what he sees pretty well IMO and he is honest and will say what he thinks. It annoys me that it's not what I want to hear, but that's because I want Derby County to be better than what we are and have been. Dawes in my opinion is the one that might need to raise his professionalism. Whilst I think the ploy is to be "lads" and relate to the lads that are listening, sometimes it's a bit churlish and not funny, others it does make me laugh. IN commentary and punditry terms, the current set up is very good. 
    I find it amusing though that people are held by different standards. "I'm allowed to be negative and call Derby rubbish, but you're not!"

    Didn't have much choice of material as a young kid.  Local TV began airing when i was 5, so all we could get on our smuggled Radionette TV/radio cabinet were grainy transmissions of American programs from the NATO base station.  For kids there was Felix The Cat which i loved and Captain Kangaroo which i found creepy.  Enjoyed the grown up programs most, especially Get Smart and Combat.  Learned English watching that stuff, that's why i talk funny.
     
     
    Every Sunday most kids were allowed to go to the cinema at 3pm where we had a choice of mostly Roy Rogers or Looney Tunes, the latter being most popular with me, specifically Daffy Duck, loved when he went crazy and the rare occasions he got the better of that deplorable Bugs Bunny character.

    I think you've both missed my point.
    If you're so self-entitled that you think your ticket guarantees more than what you actually get, and are going to become poisonous to the club, here, have your cash back and go and support someone else, but don't come back thinking you're a fan when we get United in the Cup Final!
    You're either in or out, either a Supporter, or you're not.
    I'm not looking at it from a fan somehow blagging his/her money back from the club, I'm looking at it from the Club getting rid of poo fans!

    you'd never have heard me abuse NC at Pride Park, you'd never hear me moaning or groaning about players at the game (home or away). I get wound up when a young player tried something positive and gets tackled and the fans get on his back, he will inevitably be too scared to be positive again, and although not young, I believe Gary Teale was affected by the crowd, so never tried to take on players cos of the groans.
    "man up a bit"? Really, in the day and age of mental-health awareness, where far too much importance is put on football and players, you think that's a fair comment?

    go into most service industry businesses, abuse someone and tell them to go back to where they come from, and you'll be charged with a hate crime!
    the reason I think it's wrong is, that in my opinion, we should be intelligent enough to know the standard of player we have, know the patterns of form and performance, and understand the concept of confidence. To abuse a young player or a new player/manager before they've had chance to get used to their job is sheer idiocy in my opinion, and perhaps the skin should be thicker, but it seems the fans who cannot understand the fragility of the mind, and the body of a performing athlete are becoming thicker.

    Easiest thing in the world to say because you 100% know that no one is ever offering you 150,000 pounds a WEEK to do your job. 
    Anyone can sit their in their ivory throne and say “I wouldn’t take It, I’m not motivated by money, time is more important to me than money” etc etc BUT the stone cold facts are that if someone put a bucket of money in front of you with 150,000 pounds and said if you come and work for me then there will be another bucket of 150,000 pounds coming your way next week...and the week after...and the week after that....then you wouldn’t turn It down, no one with a normal job ever would.
    that much money would mean your wife would never have to work again, your kids could have the best education possible and wouldn’t have to ever worry about money again, their kids could do the same, there would be a legacy for your family thanks to you signing this contract....so don’t go all high and mighty on me, you would rip their hands off. (And rightly so)

    I can't tell you how happy it makes me for you to say that. I'm so glad that my ramblings have been able to help in some way. It was my intention, partly because I was coming out of a very tough period myself and I told myself that it was all temporary. I feel it's important that any of us don't get bogged down in the here-and-now. I just hope you're feeling better - you've got an entire community of people on here all behind you.
