Re: Well done, plucky little Croatia!

Paintdog
You are a sad and quite strange person, Hank.

I no longer want to speak with you.
Donny

It's like the song says … "There ain't no good guy; there ain't no bad guy. There's only you and me and we just disagree."

Did I get my grammar right? Now pull in your pouty bottom lip and stand up straight like a Toy Soldier.

With love and kisses - And I'm not Hank.

A ball rolls over a chalked line and all hell breaks loose. I fail to understand why this was necessary, and what it has to do with "any aspect of 1/72 scale plastic figures" for what this forum is for.

Therefore, can I please ask the mod to take action here. Thank you.

Re: Moderator action please

Hi Pa,

It's not just that a ball rolls across a line, it's the Navy Seal Training that gets a group of guys to coordinate that goal. You did read about the British Divers who located the lost group of Thai Soccer kids and coach who were lost in caves for 2 weeks. Those soldiers got to use their skills to help civilians save themselves in non-war conflicts.

I personally think these past few weeks have been inspirational. And a nice diversion from the headache wrenching decision of what color to paint a coat sleeve button an a 1" figurine. Anyway, now we have both had our say.

Could I suggest the Moderator at least remove the racist post?

Such things give a forum a bad name.

Re: Moderator action please

The reality is the foreign born players are invited to join the national teams with the promise of being granted citizenship in that team's country. In many cases, they are upgrading their life's overall situation, possibly coming from poverty. Obviously if they perform well and their team keeps advancing, then they potentially could earn millions and millions in currency, plus living the lifestyle of a worshipped near god by their new fans. If they manage their new assets well, they could be set for an entire life of luxury in their adopted new county. I grew up playing sports and appreciate the fun and relationships. I also appreciate that many who join the FFL, if desired, after two 5-year enlistments can apply for French Citizenship and all benefits that goes with it. A lot of them are looking for a new, clean start from their old life. The process for an athlete should normally be streamlined to some time quicker than 10 years. Skills can diminish. Cups come and go. So pull your lip in Don. All these players I'm referring to will give anything to be in this situation and have a chance to succeed. Think about it - How many other sports offer the opportunity for a whole start in life which includes a new citizenship. Those guys are all laughing all the way to the bank, commercial contracts, and unlimited admiration regardless of what we say. All the athletes I grew up with played with toy soldiers while growing up, too.

Scrambling?

You should be ashamed of your racist rant.

There was nothing racist about that.

I have no reason to scramble, Paintdog. Soccer or Football is I think the #1 International / National sports competition which every 4 years or so brings us all together to cheer for our favorites. Those are called National Teams. You, Paintdog are the only one bringing up race. So what does that make you, besides ignorant.

So here we are left only with countries to cheer for. But if they ever allowed a FFL Team, I'd put my money on them to win.

Note: A little late for this Cup's Action, but here's a link for a 1/72 set of players, if I may Strelets:

Re: Moderator action please

You referred to "pure blood" (eugenics) & called me a "not pure English turncoat"(racism).
Try as you might, we are no longer talking about sport.

If you think you can brush this appalling language aside, you're wrong.

Be unsportsmanlike. Advocate violence on the sporting field. I don't care. But I will point out racism.

You should be ashamed.

"English" is not a race.

Mention of Hank above
Is he OK?
They were happy but feisty days.

If you read this. Hope you are well in the part of the USA where the sun always shines.

PS
English is a language
The English are people who crave for passports of a certain hue. (notice the definite article written by a useless article)
English can be an adjective eg English mustard

The rest is so complicated that most English people don't know so they would be terrible at those war time pass word identifiers.

"Who won the FA Cup Final in 1937?"
"Eff knows and eff cares so eff off"
"Pass friend"

I will send him an e-mail this weekend and include this link, David. I know he will be glad to hear you still care.

He will get a kick out of knowing his legacy lives on through me. Like the song "Hotel California." "You can check-out, but you can never leave!"

P.S. Thank you for your "English" clarification. I bow before you. You are a true Sensei!

Have a great weekend. GC

Re: Hank

Im Not dead yet,was very close in February :) but too bad for you and the "janitor" I was revived as I upset "the gatekeeper" . lol. I get off my posterior and start bucket list ride as my time was almost up. May 7th I depart with my Indian motorbike California to New Hampshire across USA and back(May 22) then south to NCarolina I-40 all way to LosAngeles . On way out east I visited Fort Apache Fort Laramie and Fort ABraham Lincoln. Visited Indian factorySpirit Lake Iowa and wonderful Harley Davidson museum Milwaukie (many military motorbikes in collection( 3 x iron Butt days(1000+ miles in a day storms behind me were nasty). I rode into Canada to Port Burwell saw an "old friend" who looked rutier than me. I visited GarrisonClay in Nevada 3 year ago and kept in touch, Looks like yosu are back David OBrien, you were alwyas a good guy.Uwe keeps in touch birthdays. He was great guy too.So motorcycles my hobby now. I lost total interest with Strelets when they produced those roman civilian figures. So 6 years later and what gas changed ?
