What's the most "Tin Pot" thing you've seen in the SPFL


Recommended Posts

Is this a way of monetising fan engagement?

No. The Club’s Fan Engagement team will continue to deliver their highly regarded campaigns and activities across the season with the wider fanbase, separate from this partnership. However, the fan experiences and opportunities created by this partnership come from the rights Sportemon Go have acquired as a partner of Hibernian FC. They have chosen to tailor their access to player appearances, match tickets and other elements of their partnership inventory to create new fan experiences, that would otherwise have not been possible. Hibernian FC and Sportemon Go will be working with fans, fan groups and HIB$ Fan Token holders to help shape the money-can’t-buy fan experiences on offer.

Am I the only one who thinks the above is a load of bollocks?

When Everton launched their own Fan Token in the summer this was the view of the FSA.

 However, Rather than getting into a boring semantic debate about precisely what the word "con" means

Yeah, I think you've got a different definition to me.

I don't have any sympathy for folk who sink money they can't afford to lose into something they don't understand.

"We are pleased to be partnering with Sportemon Go. It’s a great opportunity to work in collaboration with them to develop market leading products and services that engage our existing fan base, with the opportunity to grow a new audience, whilst generating significant revenue for the club in the process"

That sure does sound like ""monetising fan engagement" to me.

If you really want us to have a discourse about the ethics of deception in an uncertain universe then that could happen








It’s just one of the experiences available if you buy enough Top Cat Tokens ($TCT) to become an official “intellectual close friend” you also get to call me TC*

Be warned the quality of my jokes may go down




* subject to terms and conditions**





** the principle condition being “providing it’s with dignity”

Fair play to Hibs Fitba Club Club, beating Davie "Herbalife" Cormack's Aberdeen to become the first Scottish club to start its very own pyramid scheme.

This whole thing is a massive money making con. It's the 21st century equivalent of clubcall. Basically pay a premium for info you can get elsewhere, but feel somehow like a superior super fans by getting fleeced by a 3rd party and your club gets pittance.

You'd have to ask, if someone external to the club does this, it is to make a profit and given the clubs already put info out, what more fo you really get that you wouldn't if these didn't exist

There's plenty of vulnerable people out there who love their football club and will trust them.

Sadly there will be people who invest in what's virtually a pyramid scheme, that cements fans to the bottom, and lose a lot of money through it, simply because the club have endorsed it.

Probably less of a risk at Hibs than at the big global corporate brand clubs who are doing this kind of thing with socios.com where supporters are so alienated from the superstars that this kind of thing might be valued

The moment in the PSG "fan experience" video where the poor schmuck is delighted to get a wave from a player is tragic

Football clubs love preaching about the concept of "community". If Hibs (or any other club) had a degree of social responsibility they'd not be getting involved in this. Or, at the very least, have the terms and conditions in big size 72 font on the website.

According to the video this would make you more than a fan

Incredible,  apparently getting to watch the warm up and for an extra special surprise take photos is a benefit worth selling this on.  

Do folk not realise to watch a warm up( which is pretty boring) they just need to turn up slightly early?  A benifit many give up every single week for one more beer?

Going by his patter, I'm going to say that @cryptocrnax10 probably isn't from Lochend and may not have the best interests of HIBS!! at heart.

Also - in terms of Tinpot - how does a snide NFT Crypto scheme rank against an Official Vaping Partner?
