The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. Bagpipe ban winds up Scotland fans at RWC

    Have they lost their minds?

    (I see on the list of prohibited items are 'car parts' WTF, will I no longer be able to wave my 'intake manifold' to encourage the players?)

  2. Bagpipes are the European Vuvuzela- blown annoyingly by the European answer to Niggers.
  3. If I'd have spent the cash to fly over to NZ, paid for a ticket to the find out that I was stood next to some cat-strangler....I'd go ******* spastic!

    There's a time and a place for shite-pipes, and it's not stood in a crowded stand.

    If they want to make a din, they should be given somewhere suitably away from the crowd to play; eg the car park.
  4. No one wants to have to listen to some cats being strangled whilst they're trying to enjoy watching the scots scrape a win against another tier 3 nation.
  5. Fixed for you! :wink:

    Even though (contrary to the myth) Bagpipes have never been classed as a "Weapon of War" or banned, they are still bloody annoying. If I wanted to strangle a cat I'd do it myself.
  8. I have heard they are banning Morris Dancers next

    Ah come on Auld-yin!

    I rather like the sound at 6" range. Perhaps I have built up an endurance over so many Mess nights!

    Now where's that Facebook page....

    Aye, but for the full 80 mins, plus stoppage time, plus half time, plus the time before the game when everyone got there two hours early to have a good piss-up!!!! Been there/t shirt moment.

    And I love the pipes, played well.
