Being unable to go to Pittodrie today, I decided to take a stroll down the High Street and find a pub showing the game.
I'd never been in the new pub where Burton's stood, but had heard good things about it - nice surroundings, reasonably priced beer etc.
I ventured in wearing a white Puma polo shirt with a Rovers badge on it - not an actual Rovers top, just a polo shirt.
I asked the barmaid if they were showing the game and she turned round to a guy behind the bar who confirmed they were.
I duly ordered a pint and just as the barmaid was about to start pouring it, I was informed that I'd have to cover the badge on my polo shirt.
My only option was to turn the shirt inside out, so I left and headed for the Novar.
I've no real experience of the licenced trade, but can't help thinking that a sports bar in Kirkcaldy showing Rovers games is p*shing on its chips somewhat if they're not allowing punters in with any sort of Rovers badge on display.
So for anyone thinking of heading there for a pre or post match pint when the season starts, leave your Rovers scarves, tops and rain jackets at home.

I remember something similar happening to me years ago in the 2nd Uncle Toms Cabin (Now the Duchess). Bar staff insisted I took off my Rovers scarf or they wouldn't be able to serve me. I reluctantly stuck it in my jacket pocket, but WT Flip! Sad

You'd have been raging in there this afternoon.
Three cask ale handpumps and not one working.

If you had worn a sevco top or the top belonging to the other bigot brother there is every chance they would of said nothing.

.

I've already given up on the real ales in there. Started off in good nick, if not really any of my favourites, but decent condition. Unfortunately the last time I was in, the ale I had was sour. I was in a rush for a bus home, so didn't have time to complain.

Oh well, always the 8.5 ABV Belgian 'Sour' to look forward to when the Harbour Bar re-opens this week.
