and for those of you in the UK who are able to get Shortlist magazine, it's worth picking up a copy tomorrow, as there's an interview in there with myself, Ov and Paul...

I'm still waiting for the first whinger to say their not buying FM09 because of this disgrace, etc, and so forth.

I think it's hilarious, and a genius idea :D

What about the bug where you spray it and, whichever way you point it, it goes right in your face? I hope they will patch this before giving the prize out.

3 of you interviewed. Hmmmmmm, Time better spent play testing / compatability testing random machines (eg those with an Intel G33/G31), dont ya think? Seriously though, this gripe aside, once you get it working this looks like the best FM ever!

They took a swab from every member of the SI team and created Eau de SI*, much in the same way that Dawn Porter created her own perfume in one of her recent series. ;)

* none of this is true

How pointless.

So everything in life has to have some deep and meaningful point it? Because your post certainly didn't! And it's not like anyone is forcing you to enter the competition. It's a bit of harmless fun. If you don't like it, there was always the option to ignore the thread.

Or air my opinion? OK, I'll be a bit clearer: It's a pointless advertising gimic and to quote; it




Distract the mongos from glaring faults with superficial ********.

But the competition is on these forums for people who already know about FM09 and Sports Interactive. What's the point advertising to them? Yeah, it's a gimic. But where's the harm? I doubt one can of deodorant is enough to distract masses of people from issues with the game somehow.

So it's not pointless... It just has very little point. I'm happy with either.

Do Islington council ever have to come around to deal with the smell? I guess the office is right by town hall so it wouldn't be far.

I heard its the exact same scent as Sex Panther by Odeon. "It's illegal in nine countries and it's made with bits of real panther, so you know it's good". Also studies have shown "60% of the time it works, every time". Brian Fantana

If anyone wants to read a digital version of the print magazine go to http://www.shortlist.com and click on the button to the left that says 'read the latest issue'. There's a great Football Manager cover (think Manager Man circa 1972) and a feature/interview.

Might want to replace the deodorant with a tub of Vaseline given what you've just done to some of your customers.

suprise suprise, yet another competition non-uk residents cant be in the running for. Seems to be the norm for few years, congrats ! :D

Now what comes to mind is that I do hope I hve not wasted my 10 minutes of joining the FM club after also requesting a new sega pass password. Surely there are some competitions out there a non-euro type person does have a real chance of winning.

But maybe it's just a pipe dream:rolleyes:

Now that would be something to read.

Now we know why this year around there was a need for a good deodorant: how activation caused people a lot of sweat.......thumbs up SI - you must have known beforehand.

perfect for removing the stench of disappointment. Just kidding. Like the game, even enjoying 3D a bit, despite previous reservations. Only problem is, I seem to stink at this version - Don't know any good players, tactics seem antiquated - so I suppose I need that can of deoderant
