I play indoor cricket. Bear with me I’ve researched this.
Why?
For “Mateship”
I’m very very average at Indoor cricket. Very.
But it’s dun. And only takes 2 hours on a Thursday night including the couple beers after.
Anyway. Back to mateship.
There is some evidence that what the modern n man is increasingly missing in life is mateship. A group of friends to chat to and bond with. We need this and life today is too insular.
I’m getting somewhere with this waitL for it.
Indoor cricket gives me that small group to have fun n and a beer with.
Golf does the same for many. That’s one of the reasons we do it.
ISG can do the same- online. It’s a group of guys you can chat to. Share some ups and downs.
And banter. And sledge. Sledging is fine. Sledging is good. Sledging is Australian (same in UK) mates having fun and having a go. When it’s done in humour. Sledging is not cool when it’s not done in humour and done to hurt.

Come on guys. I’m not having a go at anyone in particular here. I’m just saying g let’s make this forum a forum with mateship. And humour. And banter. And good natured sledging.

We all need it. More than we think.

As and add on.
I think ISG has gone downhill in the last year. Or more
Too many arguments.
Too many leaving.
Not enough good new content. Very repetitive.
We do t have anything like the swing advice and instruction we had before. Because lots of those guys gave up the heckling and left.
Many of the true characters have left.
We can make this what we want. Stop the bullshit

Wow great day today.

How are all you going?

Its a shame yes that Bump taking a little break. Much is happening outside of what you read here so its not all about Tol. He will be back when ready.

FYI, Tol has left the building and the doors and windows have been welded shut.

Toph has hit it spot on which Ill move his posts from a different thread here. Sorry if it appears out of context here but the other crap in the thread has to be removed.

All I've tried to do is have a place for mates to have some fun, blow off steam from reality. In most cases this is what happens here. There are some great people and some great friendships on this forum. I've mad many from here as I know many others have.

Some here dont have short memory and dont let things go but have to keep refreshing old issues.

Yes we've lost many on here over the years for a whole range of reasons, some Ill accept responsibility for but others are of their own volition.

Please feel free to message me or talk here if you really want to say whats on your mind. Im good, have a go.

NOTICE:

Any further negative comments about Tol- I will suspend you then if continued, you will be banned. I dont really care how popular you are.

Any further comments about OB hitting a garage door same as above.

They are old jokes and I think we mostly are sick of hearing about them. Let it go, do something more positive with your time.

They are both personal comments about another member. I should have cracked down before but here you go. My apologies.

ciao

I must have missed so much over the last few days

Oh well.

Were does the line get crossed?

Is calling GG a lady boy in tight shorts to much? This happens regularly, but it's all in fun as he knows.
Me, i havent been called RobFagNewy in a while.

What about calling Mouldy batshit crazy?

Etc,etc.

Not pointing fingers, or casting blame. But it is an online forum.

there is a fine line between. Having fun with mates and when it becomes a personal attack. In a few cases it’s continual attack on same people.

I’ve not seen the robfagnewy one before but I’m sure if in jest then you won’t care. But could it cross line at some point?

You are right a fine line.

I don’t know half the in jokes and most time error on its mates having fun only to then find out it’s not.

We all adults and it’s a forum.

Aawwww the garage door was the gift that kept on giving.

I think there is some truth to mads' point though, some of these snide remarks that we throw into the mix can get tough for those on the receiving end. It comes down to intent and if thr intent is to insult, then i suppose thr line is crossed.


With that said, keep thr tight shorts comments coming because you fuglies wouldnt know a sharp golfing outfit if knocked you right between the eyes.

Keep the MKR and MAFS level drama coming in guys, we havent had an AB level blow out in a while lol.

Sticks and stones can break my bones, but now, in 2018, words and names can hurt me.


From what I have read over the years, is that some give as good as they got. Um, I suppose it is obvious that a lot of users have met and or meet regularly for golf, and the banter between them is fine on here, as I'm sure the next time they meet to play, if one is pissed off or miffed by a comment they have the chance to say something face to face.

Attending the Nationals a couple of years ago was the best thing I could have done to meet some of the big guns of this site. Also the ISG golf days were I have made friends and continue to dish out niggle that I hope they can handle and if they can't, then tell me to pull my head in.

i hope one day to meet the others on here, but if I don't, then the mateship I have built with them on here will do me.

Without bump and PG banter on here that sucks, guess I'll have to buy lots of popcorn and just sit and wait for their return.


To Toph, I dip my lid to you mate for grabbing the monster by the balls and giving it a shake
