By the esteemed former Enfield gazette correspondant

It was the partuitions of time honoured cry by the faithful when play was halted due to a player being injured. I was recently reminded of this during a conversation with a a brace of esteemed friends who could not go along with my renowned way of thinking. This applied to to the phraseology expressed in relation to the time factor governing a match.
Television commentators have of course introduced their own unique jargon with their own various degrees of accuracy , Not for them ,"Take the time off" but rather time "added on" or "injury time".In the laws (not rules) of the game law 7 clearly stipulates that the duration of the contest is 90 minutes,Therefore the time is not "taken off " or "added on " - the being there is no such contrivance as injury time.
What occurs in point of fact when the contest has been stopped is that time "remains in suspended animation ". In other words if there is a cessation of play after 76 minutes the contest resumes at that pique of time.Otherwise a goal scored in the 90th minute would be the 95th minute if 5 minutes of play is "added on".
In some respects the faithful have become educated by commentators . It was commonplace to hear that "the ref has given a bounce up"rather than a dropped ball,which is outlined in the laws . " Bounce up is rarely heard these days. Not that television pundits are not prone to make mistakes themselves. Frequently they use the expression "GIVEN" when referring to a free kick or a penalty. The referee is not there to "give" either side anything when the laws stipulate the word "award". Other errors that frequently crop up are "The player has been shown a yellow card or red card ". It is not the player but the officals and spectators to whom the card is exhibited, The player already having been spoken to by the referee . The whole Idea of cards being introduced was to bridge the language difficulties when players of various nationalities have tribulations in communication with the referee. One final thought ,There is no such thing as a "penalty shoot out" rather kicks from the penalty mark.

I have to agree with The Penguin about the poor quality of comments from so called experts, when Sunderland win a game (if they do)they will say about the returning to form rather than this being a blip in their bad form.
They also bang on about daylight on offside decisions when there is no such reference in the laws of the game.
Some also go on about ball to hand being the only criteria for hand ball but if a player puts his hands out before the ball heads their way they are still causing an offence when the ball hits the hand.
And then there is Garth Crooks!!!!!!!!!!! <img src="/forum/images/graemlins/doah.gif" alt="" />

Surely the correct etiquette (and as a mangy old drunk I know about these things) is to miss out your own drink on someone else's round, not your own?

What has been said about "injury time" is correct but it seems that the terminology - and indeed the concept - has become confused with the introduction of the illuminated boards and announcement of "x" minutes added time.

WHAT! How dare you sir WINE! A refined person of renowned etiquette such as ones good self simply never endulges in the tipple of the common classes. One has the very finest quality of sherry for ones educated and esteemed palate.

I'm not sure why Homo neanderthalensis ("neanderthal") is thought to be such a Bad Thing to be. They buried their dead with care and reverence, and cared for the sick and injured who could not otherwise survive, and there is now evidence for art objects. There is no evidence that they were stupid, brutish or in other way more unpleasant, in our terms, than other co-existing Home species i.e. Homo sapiens. Some scholars even argue for interbreeding between the species, which ultimately lead to the disappearance of H. neanderthalensis as a seperate species. The evidence is however far from unequivocal and the general view is that a combination of climate change and the sheer success of H. sapiens led to the extinction of the species.

Just thought I'd mention it.
