  1. Really important few games coming up and emerging with maximum points would really help us stretch away from the mediocre pack unfortunately I wont be able to make the QoS match as I've decided to take park in Sleep in the Park so instead of freezing while sat at EEP ill be spending the night under the stars, snow,rain while tying to raise some money for the amazing charity Social Bite if anyone can afford to at this expensive time chuck a couple of quid in to help out the least fortunate in society then I would be extremly greatful - http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/adamshepherd
  2. *Shameless plug* I'm going to be spending a night out in the park in Edinburgh in order to raise awareness and some money for social bite which is a fantastic charity which helps people in the most difficult of circumstance which most of us hopefully will never experience. Anyway as its going to be the coldest night of my life it would be great to raise some cash while doing it, so if anyone can spare the price of a pint or a coffee I would be extremely grateful - http://uk.virginmoneygiving.com/adamshepherd
  3. Car tax discs to be scrapped

    this^ How is it not a major breach of the data protection act, personal details like address full name etc should never be disclosed to private companies, Police and courts are fair enough but not someone looking to make a quick buck.
  4. The Walking Dead

    I think if they killed both Rick and Neagan off then the show might flourish again, bring in some totally new blood maybe from Canada or Mexico or as a bizarre twist the International Space Center could have a cure as they would be able to continue research while the earth fell. Anyway, it needs a major shakeup and even something like bullets running out of fuel running low I mean some of those cars have been running on the same tank of fuel for 4 years as there is no oil refinery open or found yet.
  5. Absolutely correct, no matter what our fans do (both sets) I expect the SFA and Police Scotland to give out really harsh punishments to make it look like to the people who hold the power that they are counteracting crime within football stadia in Scotland. However this is not an excuse to ignore racist and homophobic chants a small section on fans at EEP are singing or the verbal attack on people with disabilities, I would hope that the SFA and the police look at the incidents at our provincial clubs in a wider scale of Scottish football and of course take action against our clubs when we are in breach of the rules but also at clubs that they continually ignore hundreds if not thousands of people singing about being up to their knees in someone's blood based on their religion. I doubt this will ever happen though, and the Daily Record suddenly being offended by people singing about a disability (which IS abhorrent) while they are complicit in the sectarian and god knows what else singing at Ibrox and Celtic Park is a sick joke.
  6. I thought everyone was in agreement that not reporting a hate crime is condoning it, what did the guy expect to happen. Also not sure I buy the bit about his age most children know not to make comments about disabilities. Also to put the ban into context if you were a fan and shouted a similar thing at anyone with a disability then you’d be in court and issued with a football banning order of at least 6 months and a fine. Hope the young guy learns from his mistakes and that Falkirk put him on a Equality and Diversity training course.
  7. a little surprised tbh thought he was okay, no doubt will be picked up by someone in our league.
  8. Bairns vs Pars - Sat 4th Nov

    8 match ban seems fair enough but a fine on top would have been appropriate as well, most folk would lose their job if they did a similar thing in the workplace. Falkirk fans seem unhappy, not sure why unless it was because he wasn't sacked?

    FTFY. Also, can you lot not take your players appearing in front of the SFA on the chin, stop whinging
  10. Sportsound Watch 14/15

    Going back to this weekends OAM why was the guy who was reporting from Ibrox louder than everyone else and all cut across everyone else when making comment about substitutions etc. Also he kept saying ‘apparently’ when he was clearly watching the game, what is all that about?
  11. Bairns vs Pars - Sat 4th Nov

    Yes, it was, as far as I know, alopecia isn't a disability, therefore wouldn't carry the same legal protection other disabilities mentioned do. However, it may depend on what kind of Alopecia a person has the most common type hair loss is very temporary and will re-grow and thicken. However, people shouldn't be mocked at all if we are a decent enough race of people however that is especially pertinent to things we cont control such as Alopecia, 'non-standard' body parts, hair colour, eye colour, complexion. all these don't have any special status within the law but if you descend to personal attacks then you have lost an argument. For note, people seem genuinely engaging with disability rights and its an interesting discussion although it's a real shame the events leading to it. Falkirk is ranked 11 in the accessibility league table for Scotland and Dunfermline sits top, however we don't want to be top we want every club to offer the best possible experience for fans with all kinds of access needs, if you feel like you could help either at TFS or EEP I'm sure the respective clubs and Disabled Supporters groups would be very glad to hear from you. http://scottishdsa.co.uk/accessible-facilities/

    On my feet. Would you like to know what I think?
  13. Fife Cup

    which tie 1985, 2003 or 2017?
  14. Bairns vs Pars - Sat 4th Nov

    not entirely sure my 'head has gone' I'm just keen to help people understand a section of society which is increasingly marginalised. You did, however, jinx it

    Really? He has a disability which is covered by the Criminal Justice act 2003. He may not identify as disabled, but he is protected by law specifically against discrimination and harassment There are worse afflictions of course, however, are we really going to say, you're only an amputee don't complain if someone mocks you because you could have locked in syndrome. No, of course, we aren't. Are we going to say to someone who is gay don't moan about being discriminated against because society is far less understanding of Pansexuals? No, of course, we aren't. Are we going to say to someone an immigrant from Europe don't report racist attacks just be thankful you're white because racist attacks are more frequent on non-white people? No, of course, we aren't. If you are really concerned about an affront to people who face disabilities then you will devote even a small amount of time to help people who need a helping hand, maybe at TFS?
