Football put in perspective....

I have read several forums and posts about supporters and their feeelings and emotions regarding the results and are subsequent relegation, most of which i felt, while keeping tabs on the scores yesterday afternoon.
I was devestated not so much by the result but by the nature of how we have ended up back in The Championship. This devestation was short lived when at about 6pm a good mate of mine who has been to a few Palace games this season even though he is a Geordie phoned me to tell me he had just been at the bed side of his girlfriends mum who on Friday was fine and enjoying life as much as anyone and by 5pm Sunday had to have machines switched off to keep her breathing. She sadly passed away of a brain haemorrhage.

I did not know her Mum at all but it just made me sit back and think. The league we play in is irelevant, the important thing is that i am able to watch football and enjoy watching Palace and more importantly enjoy life.

Already looking forward to the new season and hopefully fewer days like yesterday!!

Of course football is irrelevant in the grand scheme of things (or at least should be) compared to family and health and all those things.

Having said that, never forget my wife when Southgate missed that penalty at Euro'96 and she said "never mind, it's just a game!!"

As the years go by the initial anger or frustration takes less and less time to go away. My wife, who's only been coming to Palace for seven years gets much more upset than I do, but then I've seen it all before so many times.

cpfc1976 is absolutely right, though, it's no big deal when looked at from a wider perspective and there's always next year anyway!

exactly.

Hearing about Neill earlier during the season was a tragedy, not the fact that Palace have to play in the Championship.
