I don't think you should try and defend bad sportmanship , when you yourself are so guilty of it.
At the last Home game of the season (against St Francis) you were announcing the score of the Three Bridges game to the players over the tannoy , as each goal went in on you came so that your players would know what they had to do
Err. I think you'll find that by that point in the season Rye had to win every game anyway.
I think you'll also find that there was only one tannoy announcement during play (an error I acknowledged at the time and proferred my apologies to a County official present)
Err.Actually Rye did not HAVE to win all their games , they just had to do better than bridges , if bridges had lost Rye could have drawn and still kept in the title race , you obviously knew that and were relaying this to the team
.I was there and heard you cock a hoop when announcing Bridges were 1-0 down , then 2-0 down, and almost pissed myself laughing when you had to announce they had got it back to 2-2.
Your voice went from joy to bitter disapointment
Having made the "error" its a shame you had to sneak off to a county offical and not make an apology over the tannoy.
The Rye mentality is exactly the same as Man Utd , fine when we are winning , in fact cocky when we are winning but always hard done by when something goes againt us. WEARE NEVER WRONG
It made me laugh yesterday when Alex Ferguson was interviewed on the radio bemoaning that the FA had belittled the cup by playing the final at 5:15 , he seems to be very self righteous now , but hey Alex we all remember when you belittled the F A Cup by pulling out of it to go and play in a world tournament , citing that you did not have a big enough sqaud to play in both and could not field reserves in the cup.
LOL and then in the next League cup round suddenly you play a team of reserves.
