On MOTD last night, both Gabby Logan (especially) and Dion Dublin both put MK Dons down, saying Coventry were hoping for a bigger, more glamorous, even a Prem team. Although no doubt that is true to a degree, funny how they did not "mock" other L1 and Championship teams. Logan especially...kind of rolled her eyes when she said our team name...

With the whole dropping "AFC" thing, the BBC is biased against us. Not just them though...Adrian Durham on talkSport also drops "AFC" and ALWAYS calls us just "Milton Keynes"

Gggrrr !


If you're upset by Adrian Durham, then he's doing his job. He's deliberately provocative as it gets reactions and generates interest in him. If you don't like him, then stop listening, simple.

And as for the BBC Bias, how many threads do we have on this again?

Meh - Im certainly not worried about receiving Dion Dublin's approval

There has always been a look down your nose attitude to MK out there, well before the Dons arrived - quite often from people who have never set foot in the place

Let them get on with it - I won't lose any sleep over it

No one likes us. We don't care. Except some of you evidently do.

As for me, I like the fact we are still pariahs (though it's far less strong than it was 10 years ago). Everyone you've named on this thread are iijits; I don't want them to like us. Fuck 'em, and the horses they rode in on.

Why let it bother you.
There are more important things to worry about in life than to worry about people like Adrian Durham and any others like him. It's a sad life he leads if he can't even say MK Dons. he's got a cushy little job but will eventually disappear never to be heard of again.
Enjoy the football and Fuck em all as they are soooooo insignificant.


This

Those fans you can engage in a proper adult conversation aren't really bothered about us. Those who can't think for themselves will always regurgitate the same old dross.

I quite like being the bad boys of football actually. Gives us the perfect 'us and them' 'backs against the wall' mentality. Plus makes us different from the same old clubs elsewhere

Yep.

I'd never want to be a member of a club that would have me as a member.

I admire the sang froid with which some Dons fans cope with the media bias. It's not so much the digs at us that annoys me still, that's now water of a ducks back. But I still get irritated by the eulogistic claptrap I still hear about Kingston, and with some people's insistence on referring to them as if they were the original Wimbledon - former Cup winners, returning to Plough Lane, etc. That annoys me because it's not said through ignorance - these reporters know what they're doing and, I can't help it, that still pisses me off because I hate media bias and agendas at the best of times, so when it's aimed at us directly it's doubly annoying.
But new tactic: from now on, every time I hear it, I'll say to myself 'if Keyser and Gers can rise above it, so can you.'
So this is a calmer Bertie saying 'peace and love.'

The other thing I have to contend with is a large family who all support Premier league teams, including the in laws side as well.

The constant crap I’ve put up with would break most SAS hopefuls, so as I am more mature now, I just tell them to fuck off :D

The rhythm of your post meant when I got to the end of it I felt like bursting into the chorus of REM's 'It's The End Of The World As We Know It.' It read like one of the verses of the song. :)
And that's a good thing. It's a great song.
