Most Fleet fans are decent people, who , whilst naturally wanting their own team to win the league, totally accept that Canvey are a good team as well and that it is a shame both teams, who have totally outplayed most of their opponents cannot be promoted.<p>Unfortunately, those who dont feel this way seem to enjoy "getting stuck into" Canvey and poking fun at them one way or another. <p>To a certain degree, tongue in cheek jibes at the opposition are a laugh - it is when people carry these too far, and wont let go of them, that the postings become tiresome.<p>I have already posted, both on this board, and our own, that the constant reference to "Pikeys" got beyond a joke, and the same is true of the regular references to Jeff Kings weight & size.<p>Whilst rivalry should exist, it shouldnt mean "slagging off " the opposition.<p>Since our Webmaster declared our board to be a "Cavey Free Zone", it seems that such attacks on Canvey have reduced significantly and the board has become a better place as a result, with posters generally concentrating on our own team.<p>I suspect that face to face, idiots such as Northfleet Killers" and "Nutters from Northfleet (or whatever they called themselves) wouldnt have anywhere near as much front. And if they did, and revealed themselves in their true colours, Gravesend & Northfleet FC would no doubt have little hesitation in banning them from the ground. ( as I'm equally sure Canvey FC would, in the event that they attracted similar idiots)<p>I dont want to get into silly arguments about attendances, as you can always make statistics fit your own needs. And attendances dont count anyway, its what goes on on the field that really matters - And may the best team win out in the end in that respect.<p>If you beat us to the Title, you will have deserved it.<p>All the same, I hope it will be a case of saying to you " Good luck in your attempts to win the Ryman again next season".
