Breaking News Club to invest in new bulbs and technology for the RH scoreboard

Slow news day again but a bit of exciting news emerging from RH this morning - RM has approved the expenditure for some new bulbs (7 to be precise) and some new programming technology to enable a wider variety of messages to be created, with a view to further improving the atmosphere at RH – who said he never spent any money!

We have to be careful when using the score board for ‘cheer-leader’ activity ( remember Bwrian Wheeeler’s – ‘10 minutes to go so lets get right behind your teamS ‘) and ensure we are being fair to both sides.

Of course it is in our favour that the away fans can’t actually see the score board but nonetheless the Club feels to be on the safe side they should use a coded message to get everyone going.

So for example if the new bulbs are arranged in the shape of a sombrero that is a cue for a Mexican wave whilst a crochet symbol denoting music is a cue for a conga ( to be accompanied by flashing lights at the new Friday night mecca).

I understand from the club’s commercial (?) department that they would welcome new ideas. Will be on the OS soon I am led to believe.

I know what the score is when I'm there so I'd like to see a static message saying 'This lot are a bunch of *****' with a downward arrow on the screen for the full 90 minutes when Leeds, Col Ewe and Borient visit.

Obviously the arrow will need to be a bit more precise when Col Ewe are down to pick out the fan.

On the topic of making it equal for the away fans who can't see it, what about now when it says "COME ON YOU BLUES"?

Aren't you the guy who told us all that Mildenhall would play out on pitch one match, along with another load of untrue rumours?

fairly sure that Ron publically stated that they would not invest in the scoreboard as it was throwing money away when we would have a new one at fossets farm in the near future -- this was some time ago

I, for one, like the old school "teletext" look of the scoreboard and therefore approve the style in which you have written this post.
