  • On what if any grounds can a appeal a guilty verdict in a MA District Court?

    A mentally unstable woman, who I had a young child with, took out a restraining order against me, because I would not go back with her and then just after that, told the police that I was outside her house at nearly 11pm in 20 degree F weather, calling up to his room on the second floor. The way she described it was impossible, because where she would have been and his bedroom are on different sides of the building. Also her description of the building and lighting were incorrect. I did not get round to getting subpoenas to send to EBAY, PayPal, Google, Sprint, etc. I was home all night on my computer, searching EBAY and making purchases at the time.

  • So how does Paul Lambert feel now after leaving (what he thought was) the sinking ship?

    Paul moved from Norwich City to Aston Villa and today:

    Norwich City 1 - 0 Manchester United

    Aston Villa 2 - 3 Manchester United

    (last week)

    Also Villa got thrashed 5-0 by Man City today.

    Maybe the grass is not always greener, hey Paul. But thanks for the great work you did with the Canaries!

  • Referee question about piercings/jewelry?

    The rules do not allow players to wear jewelry or studs/body piercings. So when I referee a ladies team, I am going to inspect all their bellies for navel piercings. That is to be done in the name of safety, right?

  • Anyone encounter this problem with a bike on the bus?

    Last night I got on a MBTA (Massachusetts Bay Transit Authority) bus at 8:30pm, paid and put my folding Dahon in the folded position between the seats and sat in the same seat. The bus was less than a quarter full. The driver said he had to radio his supervisor to ask him about my bike. After some time, he said his supervisor said I have to take the bus off the bike. I pulled up the MBTA website and the bicycle rules which has a welcoming headline: "BRING YOUR BIKE ON THE BUS" - "You can bring your bike on the bus if:

    The bus is equipped with an external rack Check here for bike rack-equipped bus routes.

    You have a folded folding bike.

    The bus is not a shuttle bus substituting for Commuter Rail or Subway service."

    I showed him this and an official MBTA printed leaflet too with the same. He was rude and blanked me off and went in his truck and said he was on the phone and put up his window. Then three local town Police cars arrived and they came on the bus and marched me off the bus with my bike and backpack full of shopping and a shopping bag. I was surrounded by at least six local town police officers on the sidewalk and the MBTA Transit Police drove up with one MBTA police officer. Whenever I tried to show any of them the rules on my phone or the printed version, they said they did not care and did not want to see it or hear about it. The Transit Police officer was the most sarcastic of all of them. So it is 80 degrees, humid and I have perishable food. I was very embarrassed, as I used to live in Arlington. It has taken me all morning to gt through to the MBTA and I talked to a supervisor (who was amazed by all this) and a claims administrator in their legal department. I told them that I want their assurance in the future about their policies and I want a letter from the MBTA that I am authorized to take my bike on he bus in a fold up position and that I have the right to remain on the bus. Otherwise how can I plan anything. How can I be sure that I can be somewhere for my 4 year old son, to feed him or pick him up from school, for example?

    It appears that there is a huge disconnect between the office staff and the staff in the field. It is interesting to not that their claims form request hotline is full and is not accepting any more messages.

  • folding bicycles on buses?

    Last night I got on a MBTA bus (near Boston) at 8:30pm and put my folding Dahon in the folded position between the seats and sat in the same seat.

Then three local Town Police cars arrived and they came on the bus and marched me off the bus with my bike and backpack full of shopping and one shopping bag. I was surrounded by at least six Arlington police officers on the sidewalk and the MBTA Transit Police drove up with one MBTA police officer in it. Whenever I tried to show any of them the rules on my phone or the printed version, they said they did not care and did not want to see it or hear about it.

Otherwise how can I plan anything. My food was ruined in the heat by not getting back home and I had too much shopping to ride the bike.

    Do they have the right to treat me like that and embarrass and humiliate me like that, in front of people who know me (I used to live in the area this occurred in)?

    Do I have any legal recourse? (I was very stressed by it and my food was ruined in the summer heat and humidity due to the delay). The buses run every hour and I was too nervous to wait an hour for another one. I took a different bus with a rack and then the commuter rail at extra cost to me. My evening was ruined.)

  • Do you think Ian Holloway is being too hard on himself with Marlon Harewood's injury?

    I mean Harewood was close to quitting the game when he had to leave Villa after a foot injury required surgery. He is 31, which is when the trouble starts playing at that level. It must be a very torn hamstring to requrie 2 months out.

    Sorry for Blackpool and Ollie however and I think this will set them back for the match with Bolton.

  • Mourinho's cheats Alonso & Ramos, going to get suspensions and fines. Will this be a lesson?

    I watched the game and it was disgusting behaviour. It was most unfair on Ajax too, who were anxious to try and score.

    Do you think Mourinho's power and success has gone to his head and that he is orchestrating the cheating?

  • Do you remember when Chris Sutton was a record signing for £5 million in 1994?

    How times have changed!!

    Sutton became the most expensive player in English football in July 1994, when he was transferred from Norwich City to Blackburn Rovers for £5 million. He developed a strong partnership ('SAS') with Alan Shearer. Norwich City were fleeced by then Chairman Robert Chase and began their rollercoaster slide as he sold all the best players and lined his own pockets. .

    Sutton retired from playing football in 2007, due to problems following concussion injuries.
