Do these quite recent words remind you of someone?
Come on guys, can we get back to thread topic :roll:
It can happen to the best of us.

I'm still contributing to the topic Vicomte. Take great exception to name calling though. Especially one as insulting as the one used here. Glad you're following my posts though. ;-)

Reciprocal surely old boy ;-)

Name calling? :shock:
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2018 and over fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Oh, c'mon Zimmy, surely you can ferret out the meaning of that. Goodness. Helen had to assist before, but she has other things to do, like bring us more [great] tweets about Leonard.

I can't contribute to equating in any way performers of music with football. yuk
And, you don't even have Leonard in the Championship League :roll: , anyway.
At least here, Championship would outrank Premier.

Can't stand football myself Lizzy, but I thought this was a fun concept. So I contributed. Look where that's got me. Premier outranks Championship in the English leagues, so I believe. So we can all rest easy tonight. Leonard is up there with the best of them. Still think there's room for Zappa though.

So stay out of the thread then. Leave it to those of us who have an intelligent opinion.

oh, no... that one's gotta go, Rodin. You're crossing way too many lines here.

Lizzo have you got any contribution to make to this thread which is about a mythical hierarchy of music?

You know, Rodin... coding an obscenity directed at someone is no better than spelling it out.
I'll just leave it there without saying anything for now, as I think the moderators are all in bed.
I'll let them decide when they see it.
I can tell you one thing... it's extremely inappropriate.
And the other thing... I'll pounce around in any thread I please.

Potentially interesting topic. But don't worry, Liz-- there should be a standing, informal rule that any thread begun by Rodin will be sullied beyond repair.

Reminds me of a story I saw in the paper a few years ago. There was a local punk who went around this nice neighborhood spraypainting graffiti on homeowner's house walls and yard fences. Did it three or four nights a week for several years, and it cost the homeowners tens of thousands of dollars. As years went by, the "artist" started getting famous for his non-graffiti work. One day, police accidentally discovered that he was the one who had graffitied all those houses, and after the court predictably gave him a lenient punishment, people started going around graffitiing HIS art. Which of course led to all sort of whining by him about property rights.

So...

Somehow I have a problem with the combination of the words intelligent and football in one topic.
What is with you that after all warnings you have had you still can't resist to revert to insults and ridicule when you get critized?
Perhaps you should follow your own advice.

Interesting that you should attempt to equate football fans with a lack of intelligence, and then accuse me of insults?

Sure, why not. Let's drag WW-2 into the discussion.
Really Rodin, don't you see how you are making a fool out of yourself with this reply
