Yeah I've never quite got the whole "you have to be at the match or your opinion doesn't count" viewpoint.
I've had a season ticket for more years than I care to admit as it shows how old I am (sore point) but I still don't go to every game as there are certain things that get in the way namely work or just having far much to do at home that means taking 6 hours out of my Saturday isn't possible (I don't live in Sheffield anymore). I've not actually "not seen" a game in years due to the amazing advent of VPN's, I'm just not always there in person so to say my view of a game isn't valid as I wasn't there in person is quite frankly insulting. Yes you get a "different" view on the box as to being there in person but doesn't meaqn it's better!
True - and kudos to people who don't live in the Blades Zone who still go. I live 220 miles from BDTBL and it's four hours on a good day one way, and about a hundred quid in fuel. How people expect exiles to make that commitment just to justify their setpoint of owning a valid opinion is something psychologists possibly need to engage with. It certainly indicates an entrenched sense of entitlement of some who sit in the ground and consider themselves superior in footballing intellect and bestowed of a more righteous opinion, even it they sit at the TC Stand/BL Upper interface and there's an iffy penalty shout 120 metres away over in front of the kop/JS corner.
As for mine and other opinions on player like Norwood and Ramsdale, I just wish people would grow the fuck up. The day that some internet blowhard has sway over the experienced and well aid playing staff and management of the club we follow is the day we deserve to be relegated. So I say Norwood is a busted flush predictable show-pony? He's hardly likely to read it and even if he does, he'd probably saying (whilst counting a wad of fifties) 'what the fuck does that fat cunt know about the professional game I play'? ... and he's right. I'm not lobbing direct abuse at him (and loads of that descends from the terraces every week) nor am I calling him or his mum a cunt. So why do people take it as their own personal insult if I say Norwood played shit? Why not disprove my statement, without getting personal?
I will continue to watch and continue to write My Takes and continue to help the mercurial team at Sheff Utd Way too. I won't be silenced, let alone by people who clearly have deeply ingrained personal issues with me.
