You might be happier not knowing about this, but there are some familiar faces here. The programme was 'Compete for the Meat' broadcast on Dave last Thursday.

I have not partaken of this sport for quite a few years, but used to quite regularly back in the early 90's. When was it that the 'rural' dress code was replaced by what can only be described as Worzel Gummidge wearing clown's make up and wearing numerous pieces of assorted hedge? Have these people no dignity?

No, of course not. If we all wore wax jackets and green wellies we'd look like DFLs. Anyway, our favoured boutiques, Ingrams and Man At Culverwells, closed years ago. You ought to approve of the coat made of twenty Harveys bar towels, however.

Think you will find that the term DFL's had not been invented in the 90s's

Having been involved in Lewes dwyle flunking as a musician since John Owen introduced it in the early 1980s, I can confirm that the dress code has evolved over the years from the original requirement of string round the trousers, straw hat, waistcoat and neckerchief into something more elaborate. There is a kit inspection before every match and points are awarded or deducted for good or poor turnout.
The scoring system has evolved even further. Points are deducted for hesitation and intimidation. Teams can gain points by bribing the umpire and the band with drink, sexual favours and scented candles, the bribes being declared to the scorer and formally recorded.
The game had to be greatly simplified for the TV broadcast; it is to the true sport what 20:20 cricket is to a Test match.
