even David doesn't know
Now that I'm getting old - mid to late 30's - the memory is going, and nostalgia is creeping in; visions of the past are foggy and warm, with happy feelings blanketing my soul. Ahhhhhh. Sweet death, I am coming.
Also, I vaguely recall during the Dark Ages (i.e., the last six year's of the reign of Trigg the Destroyer) that our collective group-think here on BF was that Mr Noble was the only person in the administration of our fine club who could manage to (a) get pissed in a brewery (b) laid in a brothel (c) effectively do anything football related.
I even remember a Slippery Pete thread referencing the Lego movie about how everything is awesome, during which he made particular note that whilst doing all the roles he was doing, at one point he answered to Sando, who answered back to him. I'd love to see that org chart, let me tell you.
But in recent months, I've noticed a... trend. Now, I'm not going to claim you're all the best history revisionists since Keith Windschuttle, but I'm getting the feeling that Davo is no longer considered the highly respected, Sade-lovin' smooth operator he once. Instead, he's been replaced by David FFS Noble, and those middle initials do not stand for Francis Felix Steven or any such waffle.
Which is it? Has he fallen from grace like the morning star, or is he continuing on as strongly as before? Also, WTF happened to change everyone's minds?
