Title: Footballing pet hates
Post by: New Free Transfer Signing on August 29, 2012, 05:00:07 AM
Saw this trending on Twitter the other day and thought it was funny and interesting: What are your football-related pet hates?

This isn't talking about Diving, Goal-line tech and all that shit, just the small things in our game that really piss you off!

My top 3 are:

Short Corners

Referring to the Prem as the "EPL" (Don't know why)

The expression "Its only a game!"

The phrase 'stone wall penalty'.

Commentators getting over excited when a 'big sky four' club do something slightly better than average in a game.

Post by: Risky on August 29, 2012, 05:27:49 AM
People still not knowing that the extra officials behind the goals don't ever signal for anything and instead communicate electronically with the ref.  The reason you've never seen them make a decision is because there's nothing to see when they do make a decision or call.  Even more ridiculous is the number of commentators who don't know this either.

Ironic cheering when your side gets a decision.  When it's the 4th time you've done it in 10 minutes then perhaps you actually are getting some decisions in your favour dickheads!

People not realising that when you're running at full pelt it is entirely possible for the slightest touch from an opponent to unbalance you and bring you to the ground.  Just generally the amount of accusations of diving that are wrong!

People, both in the crowd and pundits on the TV, who know absolutely everything about everything, but especially about football, which is why they are sitting in the crowd/commentary booth, not being payed £60k/week like Moyes, despite the fact they know better.

"He raised his hands so he had to go".  No, he doesn't, for violent conduct he has to go, but not for raising his hands, and they are not the same thing IMO.

Players appealing for every single decision no matter how obvious it is that they should get it.  I can understand appealing for everything that might look like a penalty, its when the ball goes out for a throw in on the half way line and players from both teams throw their hands in the air appealing despite the fact everyone in the stadium can see which way it should go, but they appeal anyway, because they are all cheating bastards at heart.

Games not played on the weekend or a bank holiday.  But especially those games that were scheduled for a weekend or bank holiday but then gets rescheduled (usually on Skys say so).

It was always a bit of a joke that the offside rule was "complicated" and "hard to understand or explain" but with the current rules its more like Quantum Physics.

It hangs so much on subjective opinion it can hardly be called a rule any more.

The same people jizzing when Pirlo does a chip from a pen, then saying someone should be shot if the keeper stands still and saves it. This also extends to people saying you shouldn't try and play your way out of danger, before complimenting how good someone did, playing themselves out of danger like that.

Players crowding around the referee to appeal decisions when the decision has already been made. In 20 years of football I haven't seen one referee change his mind.

People thinking that if you don't live somewhere you can't support the team (a few guilty of that in here already!).

I bet is sure as hell influences his next decision though.  It really seems referees are invertebrates, they live in fear of Alex Fergusons post match interview.

Also, "at the end of the day". Doesn't really piss me off, but annoying if overused. But the most important thing to me is spineless referees, as has been mentioned. I've refereed at youth levels since I was 13 and am moving my way up, and I'll try to maintain the most respectful and professional attitude out there- as long as you do the same to me. Want to ask me for clarification on a call? I'll be more than happy to give a quick explanation of my reasoning, if the timing is appropriate. Want to crowd around me? I tell you to back away, and if you're still here in 5 seconds, the card goes out.

Officials needs to be tough professionals, and they'll earn respect, similar to how rugby players treat referees.

Agreed, but I'd also add the reverse situation where the player with the assist doesn't join the goalscorer and instead runs to the crowd celebrating by themself - especially when the goalscorer still had plenty to do to score.

See C. Ronaldo for both sides of this crime!

My missus or any woman saying "It's only a game." Don't ask me why it enrages me more than a fella - I don't know.

Maybe because I'm a misogynistic prick?

I have to say that exceptions to the rule, such as our own Lizz88 have my undying respect, but the rest.....   :headbang:

I fucking despise them words especially after the derby

Pet Hate:

Job 'auditions' on MOTD or Football Focus. They 'pundit' for half an hour and then lift their skirts for prospective employers, saying they are 'waiting' for offers. They always say it's not nice because they are waiting for someone else to 'fail' when we all know that most of them would run over their colleagues legs in their Land Rover Vogues if it would give them their next payday.

Paul "Let's see how far an enraged Scotsman can throw me" Ince was embarrassing on Saturday.

"I've got a 43% win ratio so I'm not a bad manager"

Please hire me, please please please? 'Slurp, Slurp' do you like it when I do that Mr Chairman?

Fuckin whores.

Players that dive forward when they've been tugged back

Players who let the ball run out for a throw when it's their team's throw anyway.  Then by the time they throw it back into play, they end up losing the ball immediately

Pundits calling for referees to show consistency AND common sense when those two things are polar opposites

Divers- Suarez & Ashley Young. Really does piss me off to the point I want to drown that twat Suarez when he roll's around after being tapped, but he still manages to have a sneeky look at the ref to see what he's gonna do about it.

Certain biased commentator's- Alan Parry towards the shite, Chris Waddle towards anyone playing us.

Alan "I thought we taught Everton a lesson tonight" Pardew- Twat.

Phil Thompson's inability to say "EVERTON" when on Soccer Saturday.

My Son's inability to sit still for two seconds at the game- the Skittle's and Red Bull breakfasts on matchday mornings will have to stop!

Villa fans and the shit songs they sing- "On the piss my Lord" is shite. Please desist.

That two fingered pointy up in the air thing strikers do when they score that seems to be flavour of the month goal celebration.

Referees who make a big show of playing an advantage. I hate the way they run along with both arms stretched out in front of them, palms upwards, and turning their heads from side to side in a curiously rapid fashion. You can almost hear them saying, “Look, look advantage! I’m playing advantage.”

Oh yeah bang on with that!  It was cool when Kaka did it scoring for Milan at Old Trafford about 5 years ago but he is actually religious. I know some people do it as if pointing to heaven for a deceased relative too but it's still over-used

I saw a picture with the scorer in the foreground and a teammate out of focus in the background doing it, he hadn't even scored. Made me feel like Harry Enfield's Self Righteous Brothers.

I'm not a groundsman or a gardener but I really hate it when players slide on both knees after scoring!  Probably just me but I always think to myself how much that must f*** up the pitch after all the effort that goes it to making it as good as possible all through the week, and more so during the winter months when the pitches are sometimes water logged.

Whilst often this is a result of a dive, it's not always.  When you're tugged backwards when you're running you can often fall forwards if the pull was strong enough to unbalance you.  Momentum dictates that the player will still fall forwards.

Fine but I'm talking about when they don't have momentum but they just know they have to go down some way or another

To be fair that's what referees are supposed to do- they're now trained to put their arms directly out and shout "PLAY ON!" to prevent any confusion.

People thinking that it's only players who wave imaginary cards who try and influence referees into booking/sending off an opponent.

What do people think players are saying when they approach the ref after a foul has been given in their favour??

Totally agree.

I've said it before, and I'll say it again. Referees need a clearly defined system of telling players to back off. Either a certain phrase or a hand gesture, and the players should know to stand down or get cared.

Other sports manage it- you never see a rugby ref get jumped, and in hockey the area on the ice near the off-ice officials box is marked by a semi-circle. Enter that circle while the ref is trying to talk to the officials through the glass and you're gone. Football refs need complete authority and control to shut players up.

That slo-mo thing the TV shows when a players lips are sort-of blubbering in and out.  Plus when the camera just focusses 100% on the football when a keeper is taking a goal kick - now you see it, now you don't - wasn't that cool?  NO.  Not at all. Twats.

The hard-on every commentator ever has for Paul Scholes.

Every other pass in a United game is met with "only Paul Scholes could make that pass" or "that was a Scholes-esque pass from x/y/x".

When he gives the ball away in a bad area (which happens fairly often) nothing is ever said.

He's a decent player, who use to be a fantastic player. Get over him.

When pundits use the term London derby to big a match up between two London clubs.

Chelsea
Arsenal
Tottenham
Fulham
West Ham
QPR

They were going on about fierce local rivalry between Tottenham and Chelsea the other week, they don't say that for West Ham v Fulham do they?

Careful now shogie, that kind of thinking can get you into all sorts of tangles, as i found out. Apparently Spurs and Chelsea consider each other their main bitter rivals, whilst Spurs do certainly consider Arsenal rivals they hold a more bitter Rivalry with Chelsea, Chelsea also hate them alot something about Jimmy Greaves of the 67 Fa Cup final. More so than Fulham who hate QPR who are also hated by Brentford. Now West Ham also hate Spurs, Millwall hate West Ham, Whilst Palace and Charlton hate Millwall, then youve got Leyton Orient who hate West Ham but also hate Southend, who hate Colchester who hate Ipswitch who hate Norwich who hate AAAAGH
