I wouldn’t be allowed change the title so no point.

Still think you made a snap decision that you didn’t think through.

EDIT: I've been re-instated by someone.

PSG won Ligue 1 last night. The people should know about this.

I'll not update the winners of the cups forth coming if that's the new norm.

I'm not sure it is though.

EDIT: Added a Poll for Football threads going forward.

As I said, there needs to be discussion on it if people aren’t happy with the current status quo. My understanding has always been that cup and title winners tend to go into the thread title pretty sharply after they happen. Football spoilers very rarely bother me though so maybe I’m not the best judge on these matters.

i dont think its unreasonable to leave off until 24 hours afterwards.
im trying to be realistic - if youve not watched the game/highlights that evening then youre too late as something else wouldve given the result away by that point.
for example i record Champs League as i have work late on Wed evenings - if the football thread title had the result in it then my whole 90 mins recording is worthless pretty much.
people do things differently, dont ruin others enjoyment when its no skin off your nose.

I just don't understand why you would come on GRCade TBH. To try blame Photek for that when its a common practice is to me very, very low.

i frequently browse off-topic when im at work/at home on weekends - ive never had a result spoiled before for me. the clues in the name, its Off-Topic, not FOOTBALL (& Off-Topic)
people trying to equate Facebook/Twitter with GRCade is false - theyre not the same, i cant browse Facebook and expect people to not mention any results or spoilers for things that have happened, neither can i jump in the football or chat thread and expect to not see anything. but i think its totally unreasonable to not be able to pop into the Politics thread, or the ANNOY thread via the off-topic section - wouldnt you agree?

No, I thought through it differently than you might have done and I did that quickly because it's simple from an objective utilitarian perspective: people who don't want to know the results don't know them, people who want to share results overtly and see the results however possible do not really lose anything.

I thought it deserved thinking through, just not thinking through this much. I'm kind of amazed.

EDIT: I've been re-instated by someone.

Yeah that was me.

Thanks.

I put a poll up that will run until FA Cup Final Day so we'll see how it goes for Football Threads going forward.

The Reverse situation that GG and 'Faceman' haven't contemplated is that sometimes people want to actually know these things. Also on more than one occasion when announcing the start and end of the transfer window people didn't realize when it did start and end etc.

yeah ive contemplated that, and if i want to know results and whats been going on i can click on the Football Thread and find out :simper:
also how would the start/end of the transfer window be a spoiler or be similar to this situation at all? i can just imagine it "jesus christ why did Photek not let me know the window opened? i wanted to see straight away where Berahino goes next!!!!!11"

The results are rarely/never posted. It's a given that people know where their teams are in the Prem and in which round of whatever competition. We don't generally post tables or fixtures in here.

Opinions differ massively in here but when it comes to football facts and figures most in here know their stuff. #RafaFacts
