    Why can't mods be both (it seems to work perfectly well here, as Nacho said earlier) :emoticon-0112-wonde

    Maybe you're referring to the 'power mad' and biased examples elsewhere :emoticon-0105-wink:

    Even this morning with the news in the press of FPP investing, people are twisting its not a full takeover and dissecting a deal that hasn't even been announced.

    I know we as a club have had more than our fair share of kicks to the goolies but some seem to just refuse to see positives

    Yeah mate but do you not think that a lot of this is just that you're VERY positive, and you take the negative stuff to heart? There has been some stuff said this week that was a bit far by that guy on facebook, but the SAFC fan base has largely been happy clappers vs bed wetters for as long as I can remember now.

    I think the best way to avoid negativity is to be successful on and off the pitch. We've been neither, so it's an incredibly natural by product of failure to have negativity.

    Just don't take it to heart so much, everyone cares, even the divs using inflammatory language.

    We are about to have 3 billionaires invest in us, you cannot fail to get excited by that.

    Im naturally a positive person, I dont take the negative bile to heart but I find it staggering how quicky the negatives gain traction and anyone who stays positive is derided

    More like lunatic asylum in my case but I thought I recognised a kindred spirit by the nature of your posts

    However for now I shall wait to see the full details
    It's still feels like a good morning though :emoticon-0100-smile

    I'm like anyone mate, I want the billionaires. I think I've learned over the last 9 months not to get too high or low with rumours and newspaper articles, especially about takeovers. When it's done, I'll be happy. Seems like progress is happening, so I'm also happy now, but just not pinning everything on it.

    I'm pleased you see the positives.

    Can I ask if you don't try and guess what if anything I take to heart on here though please?

    If me being VERY positive is an issue, then I apologise, but I won't be stopping.

    I have seen enough crap in my 37 years of supporting the lads and with 32 of them as an exile getting the piss taken out of me for supporting little old Sunderland, I will take every bit of positive news I can and cling to it

    I didn't ask you to stop mate. Go for it, I hope you're right.

    The reason I say though, is that there's only one group asking another group to stop posting in a certain way, and that's the positives asking the negatives to stop.

    So you don't know for a fact what his wealth actually is then. Glad that's been cleared up.

    That suprises me. I thought solicitors had a legal obligation to flag up anything illegal to the respective authorities.

    Yes, you are right, it can work but just hasn’t worked over there. An impartial mod can post like the rest, the emphasis being on impartial.

    Depends whose lawyers and in what context. Client confidentiality will usually preclude them from this unless its unambiguous or public safety related. Eg: if they found out someone had been murdered, then yes.

    It's kind of irrelevant in this case, as there's no allegation of illegality.

    I've been a member on here since Jan 2011. Have never seen the level of negativity and hate on here the last few weeks before. Its quite impressive in a sad kind of way.

    I don't care if people are pessimistic or negative about stuff that's going on, but it seems like certain members on here are making stuff up as they go along just to increase the level of anger and abuse leveled at the club.

    It was Nostradamoose who said allegations of him being a Bernie Made Off with all the cash type were circulating and Bernie was definitely operating in the field of illegality. I thankfully missed all the nonsense of fake messages yesterday so can only go off what other folk have said, and while I'll ignore the majority of it, as it seems written by a pack of rabied hyenas, some of it I'll pay attention to. And seeing as there's been plenty said by some folk saying old Stewie is only there to line his own pockets, it wouldn't suprise me to think the same kind of folk would make allegations of financial wrongdoing.

    Er sorry, not true.
    "Naive", "stupid", "blinkered", 3 frequently used terms by the negatives to insult anyone looking on the bright side/being positive or even someone just making the best of a bad job.

    It will calm down and go back to normal once the dust settles on the old takeover/investment malarky imo. This place is really chilled out compared to PF which is why I signed back up and a few posters going all PF on here won't change that.
