...finally croaked? Not been able to get on for a few days. Will the participants, scornful of the posters on here, be returning en masse? Mind you some can't because they are banned!

Welcoming you back boys and girls. You know this is the only millers forum that makes sense!

Firefox has been flagging it up as "Site not properly configured, security risk so not connected"... so configure that out for yourselves

As long as folk are correct with everyone else then they're welcome to post.

Even if they want to change their user names then that's also fine.
We would prefer for those who want to do that drop me or CAM a message that would be appreciated.

I used Safari on iPhone. Could be a Firefox issue.

You don't need those if you just want to read T71's ramblings 😊

I was able to get on without any trouble and had a good read back through some posts.

Other than the fact that it's on a smaller scale and there is a noticeable absence of political/race related posts, it's not too dissimilar to MM in many ways. (The lack of political/race posts is largely self defining since most that went there from here just thought these were inappropriate on a football board.)

There's a certain amount of looking across at and comparing negatively with MM that goes on which is understandable. Frog and CAM come in for an unenviable and I'd say unjustified level of bashing - but it's largely led by people banned from here who felt they had a grievance against the MM mods.

As far as I'm concerned it's fine that there are two boards that cater for different tastes and approaches. There's definitely room for both.

GRWU posts there now in his usual single-minded way (mostly about the great wrongs that were done to him by the mods on here) and all I can say is that I'm glad he's their cross to bear rather than ours. I'm sure if we met him he would be a great lad but a little bit of him on a message board goes a long way...

The majority on there seem decent, intelligent people. At least as we are now - in a period of relative calm and harmony on here - I suspect many would thrive if they returned and would make a very valuable contribution.

CT - I'm a MM reader and a MB contributor but I thought your excellent post deserved acknowledgement. In this spirit of Millers' Boards detente, I think it would be most appropriate for the MM Mods to extend a hand of reconciliation to T71/GWRU and Bornamiller/LBJ (who appears to have gone missing in action) and to welcome them back into the MM family.

Bornamiller/LBJ (who appears to have gone missing in action).

Discovering that Stubbsy's tactical expertise (give the opposition about 70% possession and allow them 30-odd shots at goal every game) had not been appreciated at St. Mirren either must have been hard for him to take...

Good post CT. I too don't have a problem with the other site, neither do I have a problem with gwru or LBJ.
People can choose to use both sites, they're not rivals.

In saying that I tried to join MB several months ago and got turned down lol.
Just a thought....maybe froggy and CAM can negotiate a free transfer....I go to MB and gwru & LBJ come back on here, two for the price of one.
A transfer with fringe benefits....or perhaps not lol.

I used to look in but some months ago it started asking me to turn off my *******er and I haven't bothered to look at it since. I would expand CT's comments: when I used to look not only were there no political threads but there was hardly any OT at all. Three or four decent posters have left there for various reasons and it was really quiet. The few posters remaining are a delusional clique in that without realising it they do exactly what they slag MM members for doing. They bang on as well about how sensible, measured and interesting their posts on football are but all the stuff I used to read was banal to the point of imbecility. Other than that it's a truly great site.

Too far pal, too far.

Proper Marmite that fella is gm. Didn't like the way he did things on here, basically tried ruining this board, ala military coup style. His usp was having a site with no adds!!!! Few months ago he polled the idea of having adds on Banter ffs.

He also once said something about us as Millers fans should not expect to be able to beat sides like Swfc/Sufc as we are little old Rovrum and should know our place. He slagged off Rotherham as a place at every opportunity, suppose living in Utopian Exeter I should understand that.

I've never been abusive to anyone on here but my opinion is that bloke is a f@cking tool!!!

Yep the political stuff etc on here can get a bit heated at times but at least the debates are being had and this site is not sterilised like MB. Its a bit like scrapping with your mates in the playground on here but you are still happy to play footy with them the next play time.

Flippin eck Monty, Gwru is trying to communicate with you via MB now and you are not even on there! I get the feeling he really doesn't like being on there and would love to be back with his pals on MM. Well I'm gonna talk to him now via MM: behave ya sen and i think Frog might let yer back!

I think I've come up with a solution to the problem. Gwru could post a message via Kempo on B@n&£r. Kempo could read it (as he is a registered on B@n&£r, along with Zilzal and IBS), then phone his mate Monty (who has already told us that he is in regular contact with Kempo by phone) and pass on the message... mission accomplished, and I won't hear of accepting a penny of reward for working out how to help these completely different people to communicate with each other. O:)

The simple answer would be for Monty to be the same poster as gwru then he could just talk to himself.;D

Now, now, roly, just when we're becoming mates you let yourself down listening to mike's idiotic ramblings. If kempo's back on B***** it's news to me as I haven't looked at the site for 6 months. Not sure why gwru would try contacting me as he several times sought my banning on MM before his own unfortunate demise. kempo, aka, naked, aka smallpoor, aka anastasia crabapple, aka tom bonce, appears to have finally either gone to Didcot or found something else to pass the time and seems to have left MM. Certainly my detector hasn't picked up any obvious kempoisms for a while.

I don't know, sickly. This time may be for good? You were one of those decent posters who left MB. Others were KKilmore (who may have died?), Andy Monium, Ian (although he may have returned - not sure), Towdlad, Ridgeway Kid and Towd Codger. Lbj and gwru are hardly fitting replacements!

His disappearance was so sudden, so final and so without any warning I fear the worst. Another visit to China! No doubt the Secret Service will now have you on file.

Gwru not your style monty. You don't particularly go on the gambling threads or say players are good when they are crap. Neither are you LBJ being obsessed with crap managers and their poor tactics. So its a sincere(?) :heart: from me

And from me, roly. I have no interest in horse racing whatsoever. I won't touch internet gambling but if there was a bookie nearby I would do my usual football bets (there isn't so I don't) which was usually pick 5 correct scores for £1. Unlike Kempo I also have no interest in either cruises or stock market investments.
I have been watching football for well over 50 years but even so I don't know much about it in tactical terms so I rarely comment on players or managers.

I watched an old interview Alan Whicker did with J. Paul Getty, at the time the richest man in the world.

Whicker asked him if he was a gambler, he said:

"Gambling is risk-taking, it might be said that the owner of a casino gambles, and takes risks, but he has the odds in his favour, in other words, it's intelligent gambling, now to gamble against a casino, I would call unintelligent gambling and I never try to devote my time to unintelligent risk-taking."

Whicker said "so if you wanted to gamble?"

Getty: "I'd buy a casino".
