  23. RedScot says:

    I just think all kudos to the moderator and his fine work to supply great articles for us to read and learn from and occasionally take the piss ou of.
    I noticed a while back, that “Talk sport ” use a lot of the facts written on here to support or bash United. All power to your pen, well “keyboard”.
    The posters were class though.

  24. Niall Harbison says:

    Also used in Ireland today in the Metro. No credits and your watermark cut off! Poor form! Just said “Manchester United Bloggers”

  26. Dela says:

    To the guys who are talking about suing or complaining… the site link is on the image itself. The Telegraph do not have to give any credit to RoM because RoM only parodied an image that is owned by Manchester City. On top of that, there’s also fair use. I work for an Internet company, a website with 4 million unique users per month. We have often gotten complaints about people using images as avatars or signature pictures too but its all covered by fair use. Telegraph didn’t breach anything here.

    However, one thing Scott might consider doing is asking for even a tiny text link back to the article about the alternative pictures. This link back carries weight with Google, especially since the Telegraph carries weight on Google News.

  27. RedScot says:

    @ Dela, Christ wanna share that in a common tongue, like “English” You are wanna of these peeps that goes immediately for litigation angle?
    Whats Google? yer fucking glossed over Specs.

  28. smartalex says:

    Well done sir!
    Also, it shows ROM has the respect of The Telegraph.

  29. RedScot says:

  30. smartalex says:

    She is Scots, as am I (bred, not born).
    As for Angel, my name is Angus.
    And I smoke pot!

  31. Dave Malaysia says:

    wow Redscott and smartalex or angus shud meet up share pot and whiskey and listen to Annie lennox.

  32. RedScot says:

    Yeah but neither will take me on the financial side of football! Trust that! lmao

  33. RedScot says:

    I act like a dim wit, for your benfit! pmsl

  34. smartalex says:

    ex Wiki

    In literature, the jester is symbolic of common sense and of honesty, notably in King Lear, the court jester is a character used for insight and advice on the part of the monarch

  35. RedScot says:
