Quoting Anonymous:
You and many others, Anonymous #61. You're not alone in watching all that football. Walter allows negative comments, son, so you're wrong there. What he doesn't allow are comments that unfairly attack someone without any basis in fact and which are pure speculation or based on personal prejudice. Anyone can comment on the composition of a team, for example, or on a selection process, but when criticising, you can't make wild claims about these without any firm evidence to back up your claims.


That is clearly Walter commenting.

As said; if I was at the game and watched every second I have my own evidence to make negative comments on ones performace, in addition everyone in the crowd was saying it! :)

I have been playing and watching Football since I was a kid, I was one of the first too buy a ticket and one of the first there. I stay up at stupid hours purely too watch european leagues live, I watch the A-League, I watch the local games, I haven't missed watching a Socceroos game via live stream for 5 years. I've coached teams, I closely track the playing time of our overseas players, I watch the under age national teams (men and women), I watch the W-League.

I love this sport and have a passion for it so do not try and tell me Walter that posting something negative as 'Anonymous' does not make me a genuine fan as I am just as passionate if not more passionate than the next person!

I was at the South vs MVFC and MVFC vs WSW, I watched every second. This is my 'evidence' of negative comments and I should be able to post as I wish as I am a fan of the game!

This is Football not your biased agenda Walter!

Everyone else is hiding behind a mask but you publish their negative comments just not my anti-south ones! :)

Anonymous #62, you are the same Anonymous as Anonymous #47 on the Tasmanian match report thread, so don't call yourself a genuine fan of the game. You're a trouble maker hiding behind a mask. But, I've allowed your comment as Anonymous #62 on this thread because, although you are a slow learner, you have finally started to learn how to comment on matters that concern you by politely asking a simple question and by not making accusations for which you have no evidence but which are based on your own prejudices.

Quoting walter:
You are quite wrong, Anonymous #57 (or should I call you Anonymous #39 because that;s who you are on another thread). You, in fact, are posting your pathetic comments as Anonymous each time and on different threads and pretending to be a different person each time but I know you are one and the same person, so I would say there are very few people complaining about their comments not being published. It's just you, and one or two others, hiding under the common generic name Anonymous. So, get back into your box and leave comments for genuine fans of the game.


As a 'genuine' fan of the game I am concerned as too why Nick Morton got 90 minutes on the weekend :)

Cheers

It could be argued that true fans of the games are those who fight for its best interests by speaking out against injustices and faults, rather than being passive and watching it go backwards.

anonymus is rapidly becoming an alias for"the ugly Tasmanian".Foot ball only seems to be used as an excuse for backstabbing for the sake of backstabbing.A few years ago we had some brave soul pretending to be eamon Kelly and now chris hey is forced to state it was not him posting as hey.For footballs sake,grow up,use your name,stick to football issues,disagree and state why you disagree and get some constructive dialogue going.If we persist in acting like mindless rabble we will be treated like a mindless rabble.If this site closes down we lose the only avenue we have to express our personal opinions.
