I don't mean to be a mardy bum, or put a dampener on these posts, but Humpty does not want anyone to enjoy themselves. Its nothing to do with money, cost etc. he wants his pubs as they are, and that is as conversation pubs only.
Humpty doesn't care what anyone else wants, its what he wants, hence forget music, Tv, entertainment of any kind whilst he breathes.
In a previous post I poorly tried to explain that Humpty only caters for what you have at present in your local Sams, and that is cheap ale, good conversation and nothing else. A far cry from what it used to be.
Ask yourself this question. If another local pub close by had good ale, at a competitive price to Sams, with a choice of good conversation in a quiet lounge, or Sports TV and music around the other side in the public bar, good home cooked fresh food, which would you use? Now come on be honest! Well the latter is how it was some years ago. If that was the case now, then all your neighbouring local pubs would be shut through lack of trade because they would not be able to compete with Sams.
