    I'm so sorry to hear that that. As a dog owner was it a long term result of the Peckham Rye anti freeze or whatever it was ingestion? She'll be sadly missed.

    Thanks everyone. Means a lot. The finest dog I've ever owned. Bad to the bone, but lovely.

    Don't know what did for her. Vet thinks she has some sort of auto-immune problem, which ramped up in the last few days. She didn't suffer, which is a blessing.

    Be great but would need some disclaimer that the views of posters do not reflect those of the club as some of the comments here might not be looked too kindly upon by the Isthmian League

    What have those old spunkers got to do with it?

    Mark, I'm so sorry mate. Terrible news. She was a lovely lady and very much part of the scene at Champion Hill. She'll be sadly missed.

    Just add the words "unofficial forum" like other clubs do.

    I'll never forget the night she unpeeled and ate a banana, completely unassisted. Wouldn't have believed it if I hadn't seen it myself!

    She was a talented dog alright. If we get a new stadium, we should name a bin or the burger bar after her!

    So sorry to hear this - I've never spoken to you, but seen you with Doris, and she was excellent.

    Really sorry to hear this, and hope you and yours are okay. Doris was a lovely dog, and seeing her was always a highlight of coming to a match.

    She was a bloody hex though. I didn't bring her to the Enfield play-off and we pissed that.

    Really upsetting news, so sorry to hear that. You and Doris were the first people I spoke to the very first time I came to Champion Hill, it won't be the same without her.

    I'm very moved by all of this. To tears. Literally!

    I remember going to the Enfield play off recently. It was after work, so I didn't take Doris. And the all the fans who half know me looked briefly at me, then down at my feet, and on seeing she wasn't there moved on disappointed!

    People loved her. I certainly did. And she sparked so many conversations for me with people around the ground. I made some really good Hamlet friends as a result (including with Editor); which have endured and which I treasure greatly.

    I can't remember her first game. End of the 2012/13 season I think when she'd yet to turn 1. The ground will be a little emptier without her.

    Start getting into that wonderful grey area of "disrepute". Sure at least one club has found itself in that situation in the past where comments on a linked unofficial forum were taken to be endorsed by the club as no disclaimer was included. May well have been Kingstonian.

    I really can't see what possible comeback there can be when you're linking to such a popular forum with the caveat 'unofficial' and perhaps 'does not represent the views of the club' in bold text.

    Things may get a tad heated here at times, but I've read far far worse on many other club sites and I'm struggling to think of many posts that might cause offence out of the thousands that have been posted.

    In fact, I think Hamlet should be proud to have what has to be one of the very busiest non league forums in the UK - even more so because there's no shitty ads plastered all over the place.

    I may be biased but I think these boards are a bloody great advert for the club and they've proved useful in attracting new fans too. Read some of the other forums from our division and they're a dour as fuck, with barely any posts at all.

    Agree with Mike here. As long as it is named as unofficial. The Trust have a link and it has not caused us any problems

    The last time I checked I don't believe the Trust was subject to the Isthmian League rules as the club's official website is..

    I don't argue any of those points but need to tread carefully. Say for example references to the League President as Alan Cockpiss Turvey might be frowned upon?

    You'd hear far worse on the terraces and they'd be made to look fucking ridiculous if they started whining about a jokey forum post.

    So long as it's made clear that the club does not endorse any comments on the site (and all comments are within the law, which our rules already ensure) then it's none of their fucking business what fans chose to say about them or their obscure competitions.
