    While we are at it, it's "Lose", not "Loose".

    We did not loose the game on the weekend.

    This one comes up all the time.

    we are not all highly educated  like yourself fro! even some manly supporters have learning difficulties.
    some people would be to scared to have a say on here, in fear of being ridiculed by people like yourself.

    spelling and grammar have nothing to do with some1 IQ level, not that you said anything about anyone's IQ but its how you make them feel.

    for a  start ip, how do you know my education level? it's actually at a lower level than many other posters on here, but thats irrelevant.

    If some people are scared by me, they need to toughen up a bit, I'm not in the slightest bit scary.

    If you had been here longer than 5 minutes and read a few threads you would know that this spelling and grammar crap is what I am (rightly or wrongly) known for on here, and that most of my stuff is with my tongue planted firmly in my cheek.

    Yes I am not above having a crack at people, but usually those people are those that are capable of giving as good as they get.

    Your accusations of bullying are a joke, and offensive, and dont dress them up, thats exactly what you are saying.

    Toughen up or lighten up, your choice, if you dont do one or the other you won't last long.

    It's a joke FFS.

    I'll give you an applaud for this Fro.

    Yes, it's a footy forum but that doesn't make it necessary to kill the English language. Besides, it's pretty hard to keep up the arrogant, elitist persona that we Eagles fans like to portray if a certain element insist on defending their rights to drop the grammatical ball.

    My bad on the a(d)verse, guilty as charged.

    While you are on a roll Fro, perhaps you could hawk your services to Fox Sports and sit Laurie Daley down and finally teach the imbecile the correct use of the words "did" and "done".  If you done that I'd be a happy man.
