Cardboard cutout fans...
at 01:16 9 Aug 2020

hey everyone always goes on about plastic footbal fans, but in these times of Covid, and the chances of fans being let back in to grounds isnt likely for a while though games are likely to be played anyway

why dont we adopt in the UK for football what theyve been doing in MLB,, not the creepy computer generated fans they tried in the first games, but like they are doing now with cardboard cutouts of fans photos, though Ive read they are charging $299 dollars for it at some teams which seems to be extracting the michael and missing the point, though it varies considerably between teams https://www.sportscasting.com/how-to-become-a-cardboard-cutout-at-mlb-game/ ... but maybe season ticket holders could get given one instead of refunds for missed games and just send the club a photo of their choice and they produce this cardboard cutout for your seat and it fills the ground with these oversized face cutouts, which does IMO make it look like the fans are still involved in some way.

I know, it will rain the first game and theyll all melt or it will be considered a fire hazard, or some rule will stop it,even F1 has that video wall fans can appear on. but its something to ponder perhaps :)

Aspalls bought by Molson Coors
at 11:49 7 Jan 2018

know its a favourite tipple of some on this board, even Ive had the occasional one, but Aspalls have been bought/taken over by Molson Coors, so expect before too long most of the "cyder" you drink to be made in Burton instead of Suffolk. (regardless of what they say about Sharps, a significant volume of Doom Bar is made at Burton to the "same recipe")
