  5. Tufty says:

    Scott, the banner was produced by a girl called Lisa on the forum, with the design being constructed from ideas on the SEF forum.
    Perhaps you should ask Lisas permission before cashing in on her design through your t-shirt.

  6. King Eric says:

    Fucking genius. Saw them unfurling it then the cheers went up.

  7. hurr says:


    Does Scott actually need to ask for permission considering that the shirt was a picture from the stands and not just the banner reprinted on it?

  8. Tufty says:

    He actually needs permission off the photographer who took the pic or off Getty images who provide most the pics.

  9. Scott the Red says:

    Lol fuck me you are irritating, Tufty. If Lisa wants to talk to me, she’s more than welcome to. But what the fuck has it got to do with you? The only comments you ever post on here are bitching and moaning. Christ, my bird on her period is less whiny than you. Do you ever stop?

  10. Tufty says:

    Out of interest, do you pay Getty/Press for use of the pics?
    Only asking, as SEF have had a few issues over use of pics on the SEF site of banners that have been taken by press/getty.

  11. King Eric says:

    Tufty – No offence mate but you seem quite arrogant everytime you post on here? Why?

  12. redevil1878 says:


    can i use it as a profile for facebook? or will that require permission?

  13. brett1985 says:

    I have to laugh. How clueless is this guy about copyright!

  14. Tufty says:

    Publishing someone elses picture is actually against the copyright of the photo owner. As stated, SEF and various other Utd sites have been asked to remove pictures etc, as we dont pay for the copyright on the pic.
    One pic of a banner on the Stretford End was used by the owner of the photo (One of the main newspapers) wanted £750 for use of the pic.
    The same applies to images with the getty image watermark over them.

  15. redevil1878 says:

    are they in it for the money or for being a united fan?

    brett1985: i was taking the piss mate.

  16. bruce thomas says:

    How pedantic is Tufty?

    Why is he here?

    Is he a lawyer?

    Is he a Martian?

  17. keanesmagichat says:

    tufty is a prick, lets all ignore him

  18. says:

    Tufty is worse than a new born baby! lol

  19. brett1985 says:


    It is a shame that you presumed my comment was directed at you.


    Do you drive around in your car and pretend to be a policeman because that is what you do on the internet?

  20. kiko_mac says:

    im sorry if i sound like a moany prick too but tufty is right! Selling something wether its a photo, t-shirt or anything else where the material belongs to someone else is copyright infringement and you need permission from the owner of the material or else you are liable for prosecution. Sorry but its true!

  21. kiko_mac says:

    though if the picture is your own scott, work away!

  22. Gotta hate tiny tears says:

    dont set this as your screen backround as tufty will give out to ya

  23. Tufty says:

    There is a firm called Netresult, who are employed by Utd and The prem leaue to prevent any videos and pics being shown that arent owned by the clubs etc.
    They are pulling a lot of videos of games/goals from youtube, as its against the law to film inside a stadium.

  24. King Eric says:

    Tufty – You are boring mate, do one.

  25. giggs11gerrard0 says:

    SEF forum is also an interesting read the girl who designed Lisa actually wants a T shirt from here with her flag design.

  26. Red-Manc says:

    Tufty, you manage to get yourself hated on every website you post on, and even on your own website.

    stop making out SEF helped with the design aswell, Lisa should get full credit.

  27. Stretfordend09 says:


  28. Red-Manc says:

    Oh and scott, Tufty’s only complaing about this tshirt one because he wanted to make the same Tshirt on SEF. Lisa heard about you using the picture and had no problems with you using her flag, she just wanted a free one!;)

  29. wazza (Bezi) says:

    Scott will definitely give Lisa one shirt for free, but only Lisa and not Tufty.

  30. ManUtdPeople says:

    haha tuffy is a twat

  31. ManUtdPeople says:

    give lisa a free shirt scott

    then pretend to give tuffy one and just spit in the envelope and send to tuffy

  32. Scott the Red says:

    If anyone has a way of contacting this Lisa bird, tell her to e-mail me. I’m feeling generous.

  33. redevil1878 says:

    ha ha ha good times,

    brett1985 soz mate, my bad.

    Hi All

    Erm come on guys we should be united in supporting United. i have utmost respect for both of you Scott and Tufty, you are leaders among United fans.

    Going through the SEF forum, i can understand Tufty’s feeling. He is SEF, so of course he would get irritated if somebody else uses a product from his from without at least asking his permission. Although the design is Lisa’s but without being in SEF, maybe the banner wouldnt even be made. The main thing is, WE ARE ALL PROUD OF THE BANNER, BECAUSE WE ARE PROUD WITH MANCHESTER UNITED.

    But i agree Tufty could use a much better tone in his comments. No wonder an important forum like that is not as popular as Scott’s blog.

    /ps sorry for the caps i would like to make them bold but can’t here.
