What a shame it's come to this, but I'm hanging up my vodka and moving on to pastures knew - the transfer fee was only £50 but at least I know I'm worth more than Alex Revell.

This forum has frankly gone to the pits and until recently I'd kept quiet while still looking in.

I voiced some serious concerns about the player turnover, the enviable pay offs for 'mutual agreements' and was met with a shower of shyte...'in Evans we trust'...'look at what he's done with 2 promotions'...

I was immediately reminded how, generally, Rotherham fans are a bit thick, very short sighted and love to be in the majority...sheep effectively!

To have an opinion and share it for months and listen to similar from various sources, reminds me I have a brain, I'm not a sheep, and I say what I want!

I genuinely raised a big smile today when MillmoorLane popped in to give his views, and it made massive sense and was in line with my own views. We originally clashed but have broadly the same views on how the cl

TFA, I thought you were made of sterner stuff but well, when the mob turns against you and your allies have left, then survival on here becomes near impossible.

I agree that nearly all of the people that made this site highly estimable a few years ago have all but gone. I, too, took a break for a couple of months and read some of the site some of the time. I think more people should try this.

The IQ has plunged dramatically, the banter has all but gone, the people who know their football are in a minority and if one person in a clique disapproves of a post you make, the rest of the clique sharpen their swords and come after you, looking to make the kill.

Like you I stick to my guns. I'm always looking at the present and the future simultaneously and I made my assessment of Evans very early on. As the months roll by his severe inadequacies as a manager become ever more apparent. He is an amateur in a professional world.

The sheep as you call them, simply won't have this. So out come

TFA, like Zil i also had a break from Millersmad for a while..(just after my spat with Crash as i remember).

I did the same with facebook..and i enjoyed the break there also.
But tbh i think i was just taking things to heart too much,Crash is a decent bloke i"m sure & i"d buy the man a pint no problem..same with the people on facebook.
I know you where pi$$ed off with me having a free lift to Wembley aswell instead of going on TFA express..thats fine mate i understood.

Ya a decent bloke and ive said so to Villa.

BUT..CHILL FECKIN OUT!!!
Life really is too short to get wound up over words on a keyboard, ya too quick to call others thick/wan*ers/Tossers etc.
Whats with the abuse??

Don"t worry about the ones that wind you up..concentrate on the good ones.
Ive met some cracking folk on here...& Brin, i"m sure you have.

Life is just too short for all this crap...towards our FELLOW MILLERS!!!

I also thought that this site has died abit for a while until the drop in results & transfer activity/Revs sold...

So why stop posting now its eventually picked up a tad?? Strange really.

Agree with what you say about the site TFA...frequented by too many thick abusive underachievers although bigrich frequently disables my account for saying so.

You and I have had a few spats but always soon forgotten and quickly back to a bit of banter.

You make my tips seem adequate so I will miss you.

Talking of banter...come over and try a post as we need more members to liven it up a bit.

I'm shocked that you missed me off the list and will be having a word with scum to sort you out...I may do it myself now I know your seat number but can I lower myself to frequent the North Stand?

I lumped on Bournemouth by the way and picked up £400...

It's a shame that another poster has gone as we need to dilute the riff raff.

I'm a banter man now so come and join us...

Good luck, pal, I can appreciate your sentiments. I enjoy constructive and well thought arguments but I'm tiring of the sanctimonious mutterings of those who instantly criticise any opinions on transfer policy and player selection or who call those with reasoned suggestions for improvement moaners - or worse. Perhaps we should jump for joy when we lose, celebrate missing an open goal and cheer every poor performance, then we'd all be happy. And, of course, support the manager in everything he says and does because he can do no wrong.

The truth of the matter is that the only permanent players of note Evans has brought to this club since our League 2 days have been Collin and Smallwood. The rest are not Championship standard. Two promotions, as I've said many times, are to be applauded but not building those promotions on short-term loan signings without providing solid foundations for future development. I appreciate the financial constraints and our rapid rise has been a factor but ma

it's a bit 'taking your ball home' TFA.

Several others have done the same, some in this thread saying they aren't here anymore (not sure how that works) so I suspect like many, you'll be back.

Place thrives on a good chat (football and OT) and needs a bit of humour. Nay swearing mind but a bit of fun and occasionally some decent debate.

TFA know MM is abit clicky, know I'm not in the click on hear. For what my views are worth don't want us to go down. Lets do are talking starting next tues getting down to New York in numbers.

Got something in common with you love horseracing especially stick racing. Save all your money up & lump on fav Faugheen in the champion hurdle.

Back to what matters RUFC SE as got to ditch old guard Richardson & Green. New R back & Newton in. Bradshaw in as striker.

Just what i was thinking 5T to be honest, what's wrong with folk these days making message boards ultra important and needing to make 'big' statements about them leaving...what's the matter TFA, nobody listening to you, like a big kid going crying to mummy. Maybe what it really is that folk won't engage in your 'debates' because generally if someone disagrees with you they're then called w@nkers or some other derogatory term.

This site is all but dead. (The 2 alternatives are even worse)

A number of contributions to this: Social Media makes it easier for all fans to connect.
The mods, Rich and Deano worked solidly on this site for a number of years, and with the above, increase in spanners, post count collectors and cap lock warriors, I can see why they stopped. Plus, it's impossible to replace Duke.

I thought Frogs Match Treads were a saving grace, but less people contribute to them now.

It's funny how this site was at its peak during our downfall, once we're on the rise again, suddenly it's bleak.

I owe a lot to this site. It brought me into the Rotherham 'family' whilst I went through my angst ridden teenage years, where a day would see 2 pages filled with threads to look through. Now it's barely a 1/4.

I post rarely because the news and info I'd get from here is now easier to get on Twitter. And I don't need to reject 10 ads to do so.

People have targeted Arnason for abuse. Bemused me but it's their opinion. They are not thick.

I agreed with most of what you said. However those that abuse Arnason are not short of stupidity. Those that I hear abusing him now, are using the opposite to the arguments they were making against him in League 2/1.

Absolute donuts the lot of them, and that's being unkind to donuts.

Never met TFA but like others, enjoyed his posts.

TFA, there are times when most of us feel like giving the board a miss and we do. Face to face chat and banter is totally different, you can see expressions and hear tones from people that allow you to determine the mood or strength of a person's argument. With Keyboard Warriers prevalent on here, it is more difficult to assess. All I would say is that to me, your posts carry the true spirit of a proper Millers fan. You are not complaining or moaning, just expressing your observations about a manager, a chairman, a club, the team's tactics etc. etc. and there is nothing wrong in this. I support many of the comments you have posted and think you should stay.

To the posters on here that miss the point of other posters and refuse to accept opinions other than those owned by themselves feck off, it's you guys that should give MM a swerve imo

I think the site appears ‘quiet’ due much more to frustration with the way the site operates (or at times simply doesn’t) than any of the banter.

I go on the other site, but to be honest MM would leave a hole in my ‘I love the Millers’ part of my life if it wasn’t here, and where else can you vent your feelings , good or bad, stupid or well made… (I’ve certainly regretted some of my rants with hindsight..) but in the end it’s because we are true fans and because RUFC is under our skin, and we care about our success.

I agree with the ‘face to face is best’ point as well, but failing that, it’s still a great place to share & listen to others views, and at times, it’s a Fecking good laugh.

Frog and others do a brilliant job on match day too, a lifeline at away games, including the pre match (sometimes during) off piste (or just pissed) banter...
