    The original OF was shut down on the request of Chris Bart-Williams, as the players were copping a lot of flak and there was no moderation.

    I think the modded version eventually got shut down by the club because it didn't bring in any hits for them and the likes of MA and to a lesser extent ND were tired of being ribbed on their own time. Joe Kinnear had a good old moan as well, as out of character as that was. Not sure Paul Hart was anything to do with it, to be honest.

    I reckon most of them have a sneak around, if not here, then elsewhere. You'd need thick skin though.

    If they are internet savvy enough to do it then they would. People generally have fragile ego's and are desperate to know what people think of them. After managers and other players, what we think matters most. If we decide we don't like a player, we can make his playing life hell.

    Id definatly have a look. But it could be quite damaging.

    If he did, I think hed be ok. I imagine he hears a lot of the shit chucked at him at games and there are a lot of people on here who have plenty of positives to say about him. Saying that, Camp did score twice as many votes on that recent poll. That could be quite dis-heartening.

    He gave an interview way back when he enthused about internet forums, since then he's said that he reads them at fans events (according to reports). Also the moderators at Talk Forest know which one is his account, and sometimes comment on when he's online.

    All the players in the team are young and from the internet generation , they are bound to browse and read what fans wrote about them.

    I remember Andy Reid was upset at what people wrote about him in the old OF.

    You can know with certainty that ND pays a consultancy company to continually monitor the media (inc blogs) for any references to his companies. This is standard practice, and he will get notified of current trends and of any particularly adverse comments. All corporations do this.
    I would doubt many players would monitor Forest Banter because their egos are too sensitive. However I am sure Billy Davies is shrewed and tough enough to do so. Dedicated fans are the eyes and ears of the club.
    Further I am sure that Billy would not be shy in directing a player to the unofficial blogs if he was playing like a "lazy cnut" but argued he wasn't!

    AT HALF TIME
    Player - "...but Boss I am pulling my weight!"
    BD - "Don't give me that F***in' shite you lazy C***! Read F***ing Forest Banter! 20 000 fans aint f***ing wrong - wake up arseole!!! (Translated into English from the original Glaswegian)
