Or did others find the antics of some players at last nights ‘Meet and Greet’ embarrassing?. I remember going to meetings years ago when everyone sat politely in rows in the seating and allowed the EM to talk without constant interruptions. Also back then players actually left their mounts outside as the notice asks them too. Last nights exhibition has decided me it is time to give up doing events, I have been considering it for a while, the sheer bad manners and constant drivel about drops becomes annoying. To me drops are ok but they are not the reason I go to events, I play for fun not to listen to constant queries about ‘drops’. As to having mounts inside,where this was a new player it is understandable, after all they are just following the example of those who should know better. A prime example is the player (we all know who) who likes to sit in the chair which has long been the province of the EM, with his swampie occupying half the front row of seats. It comes to me that the disgraceful performance of some is very reminiscent of poor old EM Gotan’s introduction which was followed by some of us having to apologise for Europa. The same ill-mannered group were in evidence then and I think in future I will forgo the pleasure of their company and give events a miss. If any are run I will continue to do any Royal Investigator events, at least there one is unlikely to see any of the clowns as it sometimes involves using their brains and a lack of grey matter is a serious disadvantage.
