    I bet football forums are a jolly place to be aren't they.

    The mods on those must need to be pretty 'enthusiastic'.:D

    It is a well known UKBF trait to have all the time in the world to post on here but the minute you are challenged you have 'no time'.

    'Take it or leave it' ?? You run a restaurant Spaceship ? :D

    Well you really haven't actually come up with any sensible counter argument that I can address have you?

    I'm far too busy making money to post on here with you fools.

    My post count is wrong, I couldn't possibly have written 2800ish posts. That would be a complete waste of my valuable time.:D

    Still haven't re-read your original post have you ? You cant have it both ways or maybe you can on UKBF ? I really do believe people create their own reality on here...

    I'm completely lost as to what you're getting at Closer.

    Is there a point to this mate?

    He made a good point. On forums people very often claim they have no time when a debate gets heated, but they continue to post on other threads. Doesn't stack up, does it.

    Can we define greed?

    Well this seems pretty close to me:

    Greed is an excessive desire to possess wealth, goods, or abstract things of value with the intention to keep it for one's self. It is applied to a very excessive or rapacious desire and pursuit of wealth, status, and power.

    See capitalism for further information.;)

    Or there is only one cake if you take a large slice someone else may go hungry.:|

    or in the case of the earth half the population.:)

    If the chap taking the funds out has no shareholders to answer to then his greed is perfectly legitimate. If he has shareholders, and his greed causes the business to take a nose dive, then there would be an issue.

    But as said, we are not in the fullness of truth.

    Or has someone here got the clubs bank statements in front of them?

    To true a real role model..

    Maybe he needs the money to pay off all his other rape victims?:|

    Murrin has also pointed out that the 1995 arrest of Owen Oyston and his subsequent six years jail sentence for the rape and indecent assault of a 16 year-old Manchester model followed his reports to Lancashire police that Oyston was involved in drugs and prostitution and his 1992 report to Manchester police in which he claimed Oyston was involved in running the model agency. In 1997 he told a Preston business woman, for whom he was a financial adviser: 'I'm the man who put Owen Oyston where he is today.'

    Don't we run a justice system in this country where someone is deemed to have been rehabilitated once they have served their time?

    I mean lets be honest about this. If the chap was unemployed Earl and had less than £100 to his name you'd be bleating on about how his rape charge was due to the failure of the state to educate and provide for him.

    You're just anti anyone who makes money really. Your moral stance shifts solely based upon the bank balance of the person under discussion.

    Thats the theory.

    Although many think a lepoard can't change its spots.

    Interesting piece about the male doyenne of free enterprise.

    If you want to see what happens when a club goes up and the power goes to the directors head just look at what happened at Hull City. It was disgraceful!
    We were lucky enough to get bailed out or we would have lost the lot!
    So...I feel your pain.
