Fan Experience Survey
at 17:42 5 Sep 2021

There's a QPR "Fan Experience Survey" popped up on my phone. It appears to be on the offish website, but if I look on the actual website on my laptop, I can't find it.
Anyway, it's complete nonsense. Run by SurveyMonkey - beloved of students trying to do "research" for their meaningless dissertations. The questions look as though they have been dreamed up by a student, too - although not one who has ever been to a football match.

[Edit: I couldn't find it from the homepage of the website - only by Googling it]

What is "Red Card" in German?
at 20:31 27 Jun 2021

After 30 years of football-watching together, Frau GloryHunter has astonishingly waited for this moment to reveal to me that Red Card in vernacular German is Arschkarte. Yes, it translates exactly as it sounds. Allegedly, when yellow and red cards were first introduced in the 1970s (and it was different years in different countries), most German homes still had black-and-white TVs. So viewers couldn't tell which colour card the ref was brandishing. So the referees adopted the practice of keeping the yellow card in their shirt pocket, and the red card in their back shorts pocket. So the ref reaching behind him for the Arschkarte was bad news for a player. This has now become standard German slang for having a bit of bad luck, or drawing the short straw, or getting sacked from your job.

Has anyone heard of this before?

PS. While writing this, I noticed that the red card sending de Ligt off definitely came from the ref's shirt pocket!

If you don't want your or your family's medical records to be sold to commercial companies - almost certainly including the Americans - then you have to opt out by 23rd June.
