I read the first page of this thread and thought I know where this is going, then I skipped to page 13 and I was correct. NSC the home of the Internet flounces.

I read the first page of this thread and thought I know where this is going, then I skipped to page 13 and I was correct. .

There's a fairly well worn template for it:

1. OP tells big lie.

2. Various posters say 'you are lying'

3. OP adds tenuous justification.

4. More posters call him a liar and ask for simple proof, that would take 30 seconds to post.

5. OP ignores this, and accuses others of 'bullying'.

6. Some sensitive souls, who believe that asking for proof of an outrageous lie, really does amount to bullying, back him up.

7. lots of petty bickering.

8. Still no proof.

9. Liar slinks away.

Lets put an end to this plastic business once and for all shall we:


Attendance Attendance as % of Capacity
Club Season League Capacity Low High Average Low High Average
Brighton & Hove Albion 10/11 L1 - 1st 8,850 6,474 8,416 7,351 73% 95% 83%
Brighton & Hove Albion 12/13 CH - 4th 30,750 23,703 30,003 26,236 77% 98% 85%
Crystal Palace 10/11 CH - 17th 26,309 12,353 20,142 15,351 47% 77% 58%
Crystal Palace 12/13 CH - 5th 26,309 12,757 22,154 17,280 48% 84% 66%

A "packed" Selhurst Park on the last game of this season to secure a play-off place (also the highest attendance since 2009) was only as "packed" as the average "you never filled your old ground" Withdean when Brighton were in League 1
The fickle "plastics" at Brighton recorded a lowest attendance at 77% (21% less than the maximum attendance)
Conversely the "true fans" at Palace showed their loyal, unwavering support by leaving over half of Selhurst empty for their lowest attendance. (where were the other 43% who made the Peterborough game?)

EDIT: Sorry, the table seems to be ok in the text but when I post it screws up?

I think the opening gambit on this thread can be adequately summed up with two words.

Chinny.
Reckon.

I'd have found it more believable if the OP had claimed he was eloping to Smethwick with Alison Moyet and her illegal marmoset.

So cutting to the chase - basically anyone could buy any amount of tickets that they actually wanted. you must wonder how many of those "33k" would actually watch Palace in say - a Championship relegation dogfight, id say under half.

And if there are 20k fans out there, why did you rarely sell out games last season ?

Christ im beginning to sound like The Major - basically you havent got the right to call us plastic anymore. Now run along to your first lesson at school.

We rarely sold out games last season (although a couple of times we did) because the stadium is in poor condition, although when we rebuild Selhurst we will probably have 35,000 every game as long as we're in the PL.

Grief. Did one of the orang utangs get loose and start typing?

:lolol:

Nobody is bullying him. He is a troll. People have let him know that they are having none of his pointless fairytale, that's all.

He's a proven liar - something that got him into strife here before, when he started telling lies about his treatment by the club.

Its alright, I've given up on this one. FWIW, I believe him, and think its kind of an interesting decision to make, and think much of the reaction is childish - but then I realised its NSC and wonder what the hell I'm doing expressing outrage at that :lolol:

So please, carry on :thumbsup:

So do you reckon we will see the OP back on this thread continuing to defend himself?

Is it bullying? He has informed everyone he is getting a palace ticket to get a reaction. Regardless if it is true or not, a reaction is what he got.
