One day, this faux-rivalry with Derby County is going to come to an end.

Sadly, today is not that day.

First there was Spygate, then there was the dramatic playoff semi-final at the end of last season.

Now, with the release of the ‘Take Us Home’ documentary on Amazon Prime, there are a lot of people out there who are making the same joke. It revolves around the final match of the season against the Rams and it’s usually words to the effect of ‘I don’t want to spoil the ending’.

And Derby fans aren’t backing down from it either.

So when The Derby Telegraph decided to up the ante in trying to antagonise the Leeds United fan base, they got a pretty vitriolic response. What’s even worse is I’m sure we’re going to revisit this all over again when the two sides meet each other next month in the Championship.

Did your parents ever tell you not to sink to someone’s level? Well, I think that advice could be very apt at this time. Just ignore them, eventually this whole thing will blow over and we can get on with our lives.

Thought this ws suppose to be a fair league/ football governing body.time for the media to get some kind of level playing field.
