I am conceding defeat to Farmer. I don’t want to disappoint Briantinnion any further and be the cause of one of our best contributors walking away from the forum. To my supporters i say thanks for voting for me. To DB, my deputy were i elected and my heir apparent, i say thanks for your support and kind offer to transfer all your votes to me.
I hope we can move on from this now and that the Celeb Spotting thread can return to its former glory. I think Farmer will make a fine adjudicator and wish him all the best in his new role.
Dunph - it takes a big man to admit defeat. I applaud your stance.
Farmer has the backing of the majority we should let him get on with his job. We all know he is going to make mistakes but we need to allow him time to learn on the job. People said Steve Staunton was too inexperienced when he was appointed Ireland manager back in 2006 but look at us now - we’re on our way to a major tournament all beceause Stan was given the time to learn on the job.
We live in a democracy, we live in a free world, we should all be thankful for that and I will have no problem with you challenging Farmer for the role in 6 months.
I have the stomach alright but was too easy going in the early stages of my campaign and got too far behind. In truth i am too busy to adjudicate that thread anyway. It’s not worth carrying on now and upsetting a fine poster like Briantinnion.
I don’t think so. Unlike you i had the bottle to run for this when nominated and nearly won off my own bat and would have won had i combined mine and DBs votes as was offered. I’m big enough to step away from it now rather than drag the thread further into mire and let Farmer do his thing. So don’t be preaching at me from your high stool you no mark.
