Wages have not increased at the same level as the cost of good and services around us, which have increased dramatically. That is fact. Again, sorry to derail, but I must oblige you with an answer.

Thanks for the answer. I don't doubt it is harder for young people as I do believe that the standard of living (economically) is going down instead of up. That isn't inflation, though.

O.K. there has been a lot of talk on whether or not MacTavish has actually done a good job for us, most fans on this board are very basic in their analysis and I feel would change their opinion entirely if the team was successful.

You really have your head in the sand on this one don't you?

Yelling and swearing is fine.

Abuse is not.

If you can't figure out the difference then your opinion on this is pretty worthless.
