    Rugby Stadium build-a-thon

    For inspiration, check out FC United...........http://fc-utd.co.uk/devfund/?cat=6
    The link is to a development fund. You will notice that this group of ball tearers has raised 300,000 pound sterling to build a club and a football stadium
    Some background, FC United was formed by an angry mob of ex man U fans who were farking sick of Man United and being under appreciated by their club.
    They formed a non league team and have battled their way into the FA cup raising money as they go.
    They have sanctioned an old Man U strip of neglected grass and weeds and they are going to build a stadium...........not talking about it...........doing it.
    The power of will and determination.
    Who wants to sit on their sorry arse lobbying a state government for something they will never pay for or who wants to have a crack?

    Set up a website. We go global. We sell sh1t. We raise coin. We launch on You Tube. It snowballs out of control. We raise millions...........we build a rugby stadium.......

    Bring on the usual dribble

    Hmm............. I don't think Chis is actually offering to do sumpthink himself here. More like telling you where things went wrong and suggesting what you should do about it. Maybe those venture capitalists he was banging on about went arse-up in the GFC.

    If I'm wrong I'll be the first to visit his website and make a donation.

    Yep, our idea was shite wasn't it, with a rectangle to see us through and a promise to rebuild it we're so much worse off!

    (for the record, I'll believe we're getting the upgrade when I see bricks

    Once upon a time there was a little red hen. She lived with a pig, a duck and a cat.

    They all lived in a pretty little house which the little red hen liked to keep clean and tidy. The little red hen worked hard at her jobs all day. The others never helped. Although they said they meant to, they were all far too lazy. The pig liked to grunt in the mud outside, the duck used to swim in the pond all day, and the cat enjoyed lying in the sun, purring.

    One day the little red hen was working in the garden when she found a grain of corn.

    "Who will plant this grain of corn?" she asked.

    "Not I," grunted the pig from his muddy patch in the garden.

    "Not I," quacked the duck from her pond.

    "Not I," purred the cat from his place in the sun.

    So the little red hen went to look for a nice bit of earth, scratched it with her feet and planted the grain of corn.

    During the summer the grain of corn grew. First it grew into a tall green stalk, then it ripened in the sun until it had turned a lovely golden colour. The little red hen saw that the corn was ready for cutting.

    "Who will help me cut the corn?" asked the little red hen.

    "Not I," grunted the pig from his muddy patch in the garden.

    "Not I," quacked the duck from her pond.

    "Not I," purred the cat from his place in the sun.

    "Very well then, I will cut it myself," said the little red hen. Carefully she cut the stalk and took out all the grains of corn from the husks.

    "Who will take the corn to the mill, so that it can be ground into flour?" asked the little red hen.

    "Not I," grunted the pig from his muddy patch in the garden.

    "Not I," quacked the duck from her pond.

    "Not I," purred the cat from his place in the sun.

    So the little red hen took the corn to the mill herself, and asked the miller if he would be so kind as to grind it into flour.

    In time the miller sent a little bag of flour down to the house where the little red hen lived with the pig and the duck and the cat.

    "Who will help me to make the flour into bread?" asked the little red hen.

    "Not I," grunted the pig from his muddy patch in the garden.

    "Not I," quacked the duck from her pond.

    "Not I," purred the cat from his place in the sun.

    "Very well," said the little red hen. "I shall make the bread myself." She went into her neat little kitchen. She mixed the flour into dough. She kneaded the dough and put it into the oven to bake.

    Soon there was a lovely smell of hot fresh bread. It filled all the corners of the house and wafted out into the garden. The pig came into the kitchen from his muddy patch in the garden, the duck came in from the pond and the cat left his place in the sun. When the little red hen opened the oven door the dough had risen up and had turned into the nicest, most delicious looking loaf of bread any of them had seen.

    "Who is going to eat this bread?" asked the little red hen.

    "I will," grunted the pig.

    "I will," quacked the duck.

    "I will," purred the cat.

    "Oh no, you won't," said the little red hen. "I planted the seed, I cut the corn, I took it to the mill to be made into flour, and I made the bread, all by myself. I shall now eat the loaf all by myself."

    The pig, the duck and the cat all stood and watched as the little red hen ate the loaf all by herself. It was delicious and she enjoyed it, right to the very last crumb.

    How did the little red hen knead the dough? Enough with your communist propaganda.

    This is not communist propaganda comrade. This is a morality tale.

    We must make them believe. We must tell magnificent stories. Stories that extol sacrifice, bravery. We must make them believe in the victory. We must give them hope, pride, a desire to fight.
    Yes... we need to make examples. But examples to follow. What we need... .. are heroes.
