  • Stop it with this 12th Man nonsense. Nothing more than marketing garbage.

  • @Right_in_the_Middle I disagree. Saturday was more like a home game and I bet that helped the players.

  • I'm not disagreeing with the sentiment at all. It certainly helps and is sadly forgotten by the new breed of 'entertain me first' supporters.

    All I'm asking is that the term 'the 12th man' is not used to describe something that has needed little description since the early days of football. It's a 21st century marketing term to placate supporters so they forget about being treated like customers by those marketing types.

  • Excellent write up as ever

    Interesting perspective RITM. I'm perhaps inclined to agree. Although working in PR I admire it as a piece of spin.

  • @Glenactico - think you may need commas before and after "...working in PR..." unless of course you meant despite working in PR. And to think they call me pedantic!
