I am going to my first statement . In fifty years of supporting football The Sun newspaper has not upset me. This is a fact, if you cannot accept that fact, then so be it.

I am struggling to accept that as a football fan yourself, a newspaper blaming 96 football fans for something they didn’t do, for a long time doesn’t upset you, yes.

Still, it wouldn’t do for us all to be the same.

Honestly I'm at a point where I just can't get excited about new signings as long as Mowbray is in charge. Even if the signee appears impressive I already know his impact will be neutered by Mowbray's

I can only say what I feel. And I get more upset by Liverpool fans Keep going on about Hillsborough, than what the sun said. This is my thought, be it right or wrong, it is what I feel.

What Bastards those Liverpool fans are hey? Trying to get justice for 96 people who were unlawfully killed. To this day it is simply unimaginable to me (having attended football matches for over 6 decades) that you can walk out of your home to go to watch a game and never return.

Your rag rather than report the truth of the horrific events sought to smear the dead when their bodies were barely cold. But the smear wasn't just against those Liverpool fans at the game it was against all football fans because the view of football fans in this country was already low before it. So rather than doing a proper job they went after the easy targets (the football fans) and by lying and smearing them they damaged the reputation of all football fans even further as well as besmirching the dead.

I'm talking about the Liverpool fans who as you put it 'Keep going on about Hillsborough'. Those who simply wanted justice for the unlawful killings of their friends & family who your rag had falsely smeared before they were even in the ground.

Off topic and political.

Practice what you preach please.

Having a heart about 96 people dying at a football match is not political.

You should be ashamed of yourself for suggesting otherwise, frankly.

Excellent posturing there, you're such a good person. Now that you have Peacocked your sanctity perhaps we can get back to Blackburn Rovers?

You don't have the first clue what you're talking about. It's not politics. Whatsover. It's 96 dead people. It's not posturing or sanctimony, it's basic decency. Grow up, or grow a heart, you need to do one of the two.

It has no place in a thread about Rovers transfers. Many topics similarly worthy to other people have been removed.

The discussion was about newspapers and their motives, please do not twist it as you have.

I’ve kept away from this site to reflect on the double standards. Your comment highlights my point. You as the moderation lead can be derogatory with impunity.

I’m a poster first, moderator second. 
If there’s something I see, which is certainly related to football (the Hillsborough disaster), then I’m saying my piece. If you don’t like it, no worries. I won’t lose any sleep over it tbh.

C'mon Stuart, threads often take slight tangents.

It's when it goes on too long, and gets out of hand we tend to put a lid on it.

Feels like that time's arrived.

A big stink was made recently by the mods about a different topic that generated a lot of opinion. Lots of posts were hidden as a result including mine. This wasn’t because it had gone on too long it was all removed very quickly.

If mods are going to lay down the law they have to follow it themselves. Moreso even.

I didn't question you on whether it has a place in this thread, that's why I only pointed out it's got nothing to do with politics, just heart. It was off topic like 90% of the topic, but that's not what I took umbrage at. I'm not twisting anything, you are. It wasn't political, you twisted it to being political. I suggest you rethink what politics is, or you could take the word of someone who has a degree in Politics. I'm sure you won't do either so I'll leave you to the various misapprehensions you harbour.

It’s only pixels on a screen, at the end of the day. I’m sure we can all continue to be friends!
