Still a lot going on about the Pompey stewards doing their impression of Terry Funk. Read some supportive (of us) comments from Pompey fans, a certain webmaster with a very lively guestbook gets on R5 (along with Barney) and still very real threats of legal action abound, which prevents me from saying much more
Unfortunately, SW19 is in trouble with a couple of people, the insinuation being that I’m inciting violence against stewards. The offending comment is this one:
” I certainly remember loads of scuffling, loads of stewarding (including a bluecoated female steward on the floor, how anyone resisted the temptation to stamp on her head I will never know)”
Now, having reread the “offending” comment, I am still perplexed as to why I’m being singled out here. Seriously. Had I said something like “it’s a pity that nobody stamped on her head” then I would understand it. Why did I make the comment? Because that very incident stood out in my mind and I thought it was worth mentioning, that’s why.
Same with everything else I write on here, and I’ve had few complaints thus far. Is it relevant? Probably, it did at least show the sort of physicality going on during the set-to. I will not apologise for making the comment, hell I’ll make it again : I certainly remember loads of scuffling, loads of stewarding (including a bluecoated female steward on the floor, how anyone resisted the temptation to stamp on her head I will never know). But as for me saying that I’m encouraging violent and illegal behaviour? Crap. Utter crap. And I’ll kill anyone who suggests otherwise……………………………………………………
