- Eccles of course! Just Eccles!!
MCFC-alan88 said:Eccles Blue said:I have a confession to make:
a) I am well over 50 and not only do I know how to use the internet and computers but I used to teach other people how to use them!! So I am not afraid to press OK!!
b) I have an iPhone and use it when it is appropriate but not every second of every day.
c) When I go to the Etihad stadium (formerly COMS) I go to watch a football match not to play around with my phone.
d) MCFC2112 who said it could "be dangerous in certain circumstances" not to be able to use your phone. What circumstances would that be? If you are taken ill at a match they have the St John's Ambulance people there, if you are needed back home they have the public address system and police back up. How do you think they managed before we had mobile phones?
e) Like the people who ask smokers why they can't go 90/120 minutes without a smoke I am asking why people with mobile phones can't manage for 90/120 minutes without them? (I am not and never have been a smoker so have no firm views on that situation because I have never experienced it.)
As always just my humble opinion(s).
If you read what most people are posting, they're not interested about connections during the game itself.
We're talking about before the game and at half time. I for one, do not want to listen to Hugh Ferris or some shit band screeching like banshees whilst I wait for the game, so I put music on, being able to browse anything of my choosing at the same time would be a bonus.
I did read everything that people posted and if you re-read my post you might find that I replied to those postings!! a) was a response to MCFC-Alan88, b) & c) my own observations from the postings which I'm sure is allowed or de niro or Damocles would have barred me!! d) as it says MCFC2112 and e) the hundreds of posts about smoking!!
But hey if you can't manage for 15 minutes at half time and maybe 10 or 15 minutes before the match you must be another addict to mobile phones!! I never listen to whoever or whatever they have before or at half time. I talk to the people around me, it's a stange concept to some people I realise but I find that discussing what happened in the first half or at away games is quite interesting with real people!!
Again, just my humble opinion!
