Did we just let Adam Smith go to Derby on a season long loan? Something on news now but it won't open on my ipod. Crazy stuff if true, was hoping for him to be back up for texas ranger and Naughton sold.

Thanks for posting this, Danny Boy, I hadn't seen it.

This is an object lesson in why SC has a policy of not criticising ITKs, and why anybody with half a brain should put their ego aside and refrain from doing it. We (via COYS) have now lost a source of what was apparently accurate information. As SC is specifically mentioned (nice work Hitch) it shows that we should not only show restraint regarding 'our' ITKs, but to all of those good enough to pass on what they are privy to.

Do we want people to share information or not? If so, play nice. Be respectful - even if you doubt the information or the motive for posting it. To paraphrase an old adage, if you can't say something nice, then say nothing at all.
Interesting how your whole post is about respect but apparently only to ITKs as you had no issue calling Hitch out and blaming everything on him! Hitch voluntarily apologised for his role yesterday.

To be honest I think the points billy made about Twitter are more pertinent as it was the public exposure which concerned him most.

I think most people on here follow the rules and I would assume those that don't face a banning. Would be interesting to see figures into how many people got banned from the ITK forum for perceived ITK bashing this window to see if it really is the epidemic people are making out.

I have no axe to grind against Hitch, but his comments were clearly a factor in Billy White's decision or he wouldn't have been mentioned. I didn't 'call him out': Billy White did. It is to his credit that he has apologised, and is no doubt a decent bloke, but we have evidence here that it is better to hold your tongue than to try to repair any damage later; which is the point that I was making.

Most people might follow the rules, and others might flout them and get banned (or not - mods can't read every post in every thread). That isn't the point. The point is that it only takes one person mouthing off and we might lose an ITK. I'm simply saying that it's better to keep schtum and not run that risk.

EDIT: I've checked Hitch's posts, and can see no apology. I did, however, see him say that he's a member of COYS. It's therefore interesting that he criticised a COYS ITK on here rather than on there, and that SC consequently gets 'called out'.

I dont understand why people gets so emotional with the ITK?

When there is no info people complain..... when there are info that is against ones like, complain again. :unsure:

Just take the info as it is and discuss the content rather than go personal....
Bound to happen when some people put so much importance in what should just be considered gossip.

But they said...!!! and it didn't happen..!!! What's his record like?! I only trust this person...

well, things change and really it's out of anyone's control. Get over it.

Well into double figures.
