Didn't get one, tried for two minutes; realised I wasn't entitled to anything and left to continue my day. *shrug*

Shock RoyalBlue and Maff are leading the charge of faux outrage. It's ironic that most the people agreeing with you are fcking idiots, I wonder why?

genome Listings are on eBay. Some people have no shame.


Where? I cant see any.....I searched for " Reading Shirt" and did newest listing....nothing...
I did get a Selena Gomez Tour Tshirt in the listing oddly though.


I saw a screenshot, they may have removed the listing now

Here's the screenshot nabbed from Twatter. I hasten to add that Matt Morris isn't me.

Vision Picked up a dozen (8 adult , 4 child) this morning. (E-BAY link to follow)

The way I look at it , they'll probably fetch about £40 for the adult and £20 for children's size on average. So £400 minus my initial outlay of £60.

So £340 profit. I'll give half of that to Comic Relief and pocket the other half myself.

Happy to help such a worthy cause. Well done RFC.


If I buy one how can I be sure you are really going to donate half to comic relief and can I get a £5 discount as I've already donated £5 thanks to SF's link to the Comic Relief website?


No £5 refunds . I don't want to complicate things too much.

Well I would've thought all my years on here would have earned an element of trust from fellow nobbers. That being said I'm wondering whether half is a bit too much. Don't want to come across as having "White Saviour Complex"

Also does anyone know how to get hold of those giant cheque thingys they do on charity TV nights.

I know. Very weird, very strange behaviour from supposedly(?) grown adults.

It's a shirt for goodness sake.

So you're basically posting unsubstantiated news (lies), winding other nobbers up?

Very DD thing to do.

Yeah I saw that screenshot and took it upon myself to verify it. can’t find it on there, so it’s just a wind up.

And LOL at the idea of anyone spending £200 on that.

Pretty much how my experience was as well.

It would've been nice to get one, but ah well.

You think someone's gone to the trouble of knocking up a fake screenshot from ebay?

Edit: Found it, under Completed listings

I look forward to your apology.

Ah so the user managed to get the reaction he wanted and ended the listing. Probably not ever having a shirt themselves due to it being an RFC picture...?

The guy's either trying to profit from a charity sale or he's pretending to profit from a charity sale to wind people up.

I mean either way he's a massive helmet here

Exactly this - there are some gullible clowns about.

Does anyone know whether customers bought more than say 4 shirts at a time? Not hearsay etc - but has it actually happened?

He might have ordered 20 shirts online and therefore isn't able to photograph them and is using the stock photo instead?

Would be willing to pay £35 if anyone is selling one for £40.

I am entitled to a discount because I have donated £5 to comic relief despite not getting a shirt.

Well that seems harsh given I’m raising money for charity. I’ll bet Sir Lenny Henry wouldn’t share that view.

Besides I made sure I took a mixture of shirts and I’ve not even kept one for myself.

I think that speaks volumes.
