I was minding my own business doing a bit around the garden (it’s a day off here in Eskimo Land), cut my grass, seeded some dodgy looking patches, layed a few rolls of turf to fix up the bit I dug up when I built my fence last summer, then found a convenient time to break for a cup of tea and a turkey sandwich.
I headed off for the only spot in my house that is guaranteed to cause a rift between me and Mrs Swearbox, that being sat in front of my computer. It’s not like I spend ALL of my time there, just most of it, when I’m not otherwise engaged in doing men’s stuff outside.
I happened to wander onto the Betfair forums to check out who’s been doing what to whom and I came across what I consider to be one of the better quality posts that I think is worthy enough of a mention on here.
The thread appears on the Footy forum and was started by none other than everyone’s favourite bell end, your friend and mine, Money Tree. Now don’t get me wrong, MT can be a very clever poster when he has a mind to be, and I seriously suspect he’s not the absolute cretin that most folk say he is however he does leave himself wide open to shedloads of abuse on occasion.
Consider the following post he made earlier today…
Good evening forum full of dunces and mugs.
Now, while the content of the post, the simple ‘how’s it going?’ is neither here nor there in the grand scheme of things it’s the thread title that grabs everyone’s attention and this was pounced upon in no uncertain terms by the forumite who goes by the name of Rogerthebutler.

I tip my hat to Rogerthebutler for an outstanding reply, the likes of which are rare these days on the BF fora. Since I started writing this piece there have been more replies to said thread, the ‘next best’ award going to another forum favourite, the mentally challenged Return_Of_Dawsy. His simple yet effective ‘fck off’ reminds us that you don’t need to be articulate to get your point across.
Planned service outage Tuesday 9th October
Could this be the long awaited upgrade that sees the forum back in full swing, ie new forum registrations permitted ? Only time will tell but I for one will be glad when things get back to ‘normal’ as I’m looking forward immensely to seeing how the likes of Bobby V and Hudson fare in their quests to join the rest of the clowns that currently have posting rights.
I see posts daily that contravene T&C’s, some very close to the bone especially on Chit Chat since all this Jimmy Savile bollocks came to light, yet nothing is done. I’m not saying ban the guys responsible but at least approach everyone with the same level of fairness. I got a lifer ban after getting grassed for saying ‘Batty boy’ yet there are folk getting away with describing extremely explicit sex acts, albeit within the context of the mockery of a dead alleged paedophile. Get real BF…level the playing field for EVERYONE.
