Do it now Grockle with my blessing.

I was only responding to stuff thrown my way.

I'm quitting this thread now.

Seems sensible to me Rob. I may do that later today when other things become a little more important than who called who what.

Dear Clarence

I do believe I have said on several occasions I will not be responding to you on the PM service, I do not feel I have to hide behind a false name, and yes I do believe your views are cross-eyed! However I want to establish why you think what you do as I can only assume it's based on years of watching and experience. My invitation to lunch, to chat still stands and will continue to stand. I also do not understand why your posts come across so aggressively, it makes no sense and only alienates you from others. You could have much to bring to the table however you choose to post in such negative ways.

Chunky I do believe like you Clarence has failed your litmus test and if he feels he needs to report anyone to Somerset CCC then good luck. I suspect Grockle would be asked to provide all of CP's posts in the last few years not months. CP has already been banned from this site given the way he writes.

For all posters and sometimes it worth remembering the boys like, trego, tres etc are employees, they do what they are told. Sometimes the tactic or the players role may not suit those on here or those watching but its often what they have been told or the team has agreed and its not very often that we cross our employer. Players also make mistakes, my staff make mistakes and you work with them, CP has made mistakes, i have made mistakes we are human.

I have tried to be reasonable over the last few days, I do not need to hide. I am, along with my wife, my sister in law , my niece, my best friend, my business partner are fully paid up members of SCCC, and have been for several years. We support and promote SCCC at all times. we do not ask the boys for tickets to watch them play at Taunton, so therefore I am one of those that keep this club afloat.

My family whether on the pitch or off will do our utmost for the team. If the boys are picked we are delighted as a family, if they are not they are asked to try harder, train harder and practice harder if that's possible and not to sulk or hide!

I hope today brings success for SCCC at OT, I expect to be there tomorrow and CP i would be delighted to buy you Lancy beer or an Italian Coffee.

I bid you farewell as i need to to do some work so i can afford to come and watch!

I hadn't seen any suggestion of reporting whatever to Somerset. Please do. I"ll happily talk to the guys there. I'll pass them nothing from this site - it's open, they can find what they want on the forum if they need to find it

If they are unhappy I'll listen to their issues BUT I will decide what happens. I don't answer to the club and if they asked me to take action I'd ask you lot first. We aren't connected in any way to the club.... that's what the word 'Independent' means. We decide Grockles policy and answer to no one else for it unless it infringes the law.
