  • Sack the Editor and his Team

    A few weeks ago I said I would never buy Angling Times again, and I have kept my word. Today I had a look at my friends copy of this rag and I am so pleased with myself that I kept my promise. How low they have gone, they cannot go any lower and they must be desperate for funds, why? have you seen page45, what has this page got to do with Angling of any description.

    I would suggest looking at the Editor and his team

    Your not moaning again!

    Pages with Ads on help pay for the mag to get to print.

        Woodhouse, it is not moaning it is just my opinion, (which happens to be great), pages like this belong in Fiesta, Hustler, Mayfair and the like. If I buy an angling mag I want it to be all about angling and not titilation.

        Next week you may get Nigella holding a big one on the front page, (MAVER POLE).

        I'm afraid you get a thumbs down mate.

            O.K. Lets look at the AT editor and team this week, then sack em next week.

            McNugget has to go.

            And how many chances does Robinson need, if he was in your team and played like he has, he would have got you the sack first.

            Still a thumbs down for you.

            From a non MOANER, JUST AN HONEST GUY.

                Well said Fordy.

                One for Woodhouse, I have just had a call from my two nephews father, one of my nephews is 12, and the other is 9 years of age, they both took up fishing 4months ago and went with there father, they also bought Angling Times for information out of there pocket money.

                Question to Woodhouse, what do you tell a 12year old and a 9year old when they see page 45 of Angling Times?

                Awaiting your sensible reply Woodhouse.


                Still the big thumbs down for you mate.

                  Why oh why all the points scoring posts, AT is not a public service its a newspaper run for profit, whilst I agree that it is not really what should be in an angling magazine, we all have a choice on what we spend our money if I dont like something I dont buy it it really is that simple, lets face facts soft porn is all around us in the shape of daily papers, many TV programmes before the water shed portray scenes of a sexual nature, as do pop videos and places like you tube contain it.
                  The best we can do is monitor what our kids and in my case grand kids watch or read.

                      I would wrap them in cotton wool and keep them in the house with the television turned off.For gods sake dont send them to school because i have heard that some kids actually know swear words

                        Brian, you cannot go into a shop pick up a magazine look through it, check that there is no kind of porn material contained in it then decide whether to buy it or not. You normally have to buy a magazine to see what it contains, then it could be to late. You do not expect to find this kind of material in a fishing paper.
                        I to have grandchildren and would not subject them to this kind of material, be it in a newspaper or magazine.
                        Maybe some people don't mind what there kids see or read, but I am not one of them.
                        Should there have been a warning on the front page.

                        Woodhouse you are right kids do go around swearing, I have kids from a school near me, who swear like a trooper, smoke, carry weapons have no respect for anyone or anything especially the older generation, you think thats O.K. No need to wrap them up, just teach them to have a bit of respect, which seems to be in short supply these days.

                            I fell out with AT years ago,I don't complain I just don't buy it.
                            I have an incidental on my left shoulder, he's always there, he's my friend.
                            He says he gives me good advice. does he ?

                              I have not seen this weeks AT, so could some one explain what content is so offending? I only buy it occasionly now really for match results.

                              I do remember in the past some-one complaining in one of the angling monthlys regarding a pole repair advert that features a ladys bum. It's advertising and in any other sport/hobby paper you see far worse.
