You’re right. I should have waited to post until I could read the source and not just go off Reckys post. I usually do. But let’s also be clear, all I said was I’d protest if council were going to screw the club.

So, serious question, do you really have to be so uncharitable and such a douche about it?

Zillion other ways to go about it imo so it pisses me off.
I thought he was fairly cool about it. I on the other hand may not have been as cool as you'd know FP.

I wasn't directly speaking to you in my post, to be clear - several people had gone off the deep end in reaction to Recky's brief summary of the article, yours was probably at the milder end I'd say.

As for being uncharitable, I actually posted the full text of the article in the thread so discussion could continue with all the facts readily available... I'd argue that's quite charitable to those wishing to know what was written in the article.

Me get mad ..never, but Timmah did say I characterized the story and that to me (and a dictionary) says I made it up ...and I didn’t
That's not at all what was meant by characterised, apologies you took it that way. The definition by which i meant it:

- which is to say you've described your interpretation of the story, to which others have then reacted. At no point am I suggesting you made anything up, no beef there.

I think he's reacted to the use of "for those too lazy" which is quite passive aggressive but I stand by it. Relying on a third party interpretation of something as significant as this isn't helpful to a reasoned discussion.

Yes Timmah! Stand by it! Relying on a third party interpretation could be the death of reasoned discussion as we know it!

My actual post: ...surely not true? Will protest if so.

Tar and feathers perhaps?

Off the back of that post I read I'm being called lazy (ok its mostly others you say) but you know it's passive aggressive and lets be honest here, you're throwing in a deliberate dose of condescension. And yes, very uncharitable. Putting the lazy tar and feathered phoenix aside, wrong end of the stick or not, I sincerely doubted Recky or his missus was trying to mischaracterise it. That's an uncharitable reading of things. Though trying to counter by using the fact you donated/posted a link as evidence of it being a charitable post made me laugh aloud.

It struck me as over zealous white knighting. It's a thorn others have had with you on here before as well. I typically don't try and take you to task over it, just try to live and let live and enjoy the conversations unless I think someones putting shit on me or putting words in my mouth.

Sorry you interpreted it that way. I feel as though you've read far too much into a throwaway line about laziness - the resulting reaction is a bit OTT if you ask me. I've seen far too many instances of lynch mobs picking up their pitchforks before being armed with knowledge on various platforms (I'm guilty of it myself on occasion) to let it slide. I called it out, that's that.

Bottom line? CCM will be playing at CCS for a long time to come, no amount of council spin will affect that.

Speaking of Council, do we have any news on the finalisation of the big screen? I remember hearing it would be in place by NYE but I ain't holding my breath.

Started going in today. Not sure if they plan to have it ready for carols (tomorrow I think?) but should be ready for NYE.

Amenities at Central Coast Stadium to get $700,000 upgrade from Stronger Country Communities Fund

AMENITIES UPGRADE: "The new toilets will be over there." Central Coast Mariners coach Paul Okon on the sideline at Central Coast Stadium, Gosford, during an A-League match this season.

CENTRAL Coast Council has received $700,000 in state government funding to upgrade the amenities at Central Coast Stadium.

“The project will involve upgrading the existing amenities block to a first-class standard,” Parliamnetary Secretary for the Central Coast, Scot MacDonald, said.

“Works include a full overhaul of the existing amenities including ceiling rectification, installation of new light fittings, hand dryers, tapware and plumbing.”

The funding was provided through the state government’s $200-million Stronger Country Communities Fund.

Terrigal MP Adam Crouch welcomed the funding.

“Central Coast Stadium regularly hosts a range of sporting matches and music events, so I’m really pleased that funding from the state Liberal government is going towards improving this facility,” Mr Crouch said.

“This is one of several projects receiving funding through Round 1 of the Stronger Country Communities Fund, and there is now an additional $200 million available for community projects through Round 2 .”

Mayor Jane Smith applauded the announcement.

“We’re tremendously proud of Central Coast Stadium and the quality events and programs it continues to deliver each year to our community,” Cr Smith said.

“This funding will be used toward improving amenities and infrastructure that will augment the visitor experience and cement the stadium’s reputation as the Coast’s premier sporting venue”, she said.

Reads like new toilets not change room to me.

Just a spot to hang out in after all the beer required to be there in the first place

Maybe it’s Gatty big surprise. New toilets
