I’d be interested in this info. Please share Freddy boy...

 

This should meet your ownership requirements Abshok without the club's laundry being aired in public. 

 

You're welcome, in advance.

How could that possibly be ascertained from the post, when i'm clearly directing him to the page containing the function which entitles him to see the discussion on the subject matter for himself? 

 

I wouldn't worry too much about the name. No one knows who that reference was initially made towards.

Do really think this is the place to put messages from the financial director I'm sure if he wanted it made public he woukd have put it on the front page of the website I am not a member ( you don't own anything ) anymore so if it's on a members section of website I ( anybody else ) should pay the 40 quid to find out. It does however seemed to have calmed down the profits of financial doom on here so I take it they have seen it ( being members ) or someone has told them so basically looks like a move on nothing to see here

Ps I do wish during the name change fiasco the same people would have interrogated the load of guff that was purported about the only way forward for the club was the promised land that was EK

Some of us did, Cfcuk. The results were not good. 

 

One of the major problems in discussing club matters at that time, and right through until very recently, was a prevalent "judge not lest ye be judged" policy, neatly packaged as chivalry and self-sacrifice in order to impede debate or encourage thought-crime. 

 

There's bound to be a coffee house somewhere with a regular Tuesday afternoon meetings picking these apart, to this day. Only in my opinion, of course.

Dividing average attendances by the number of participants, approximately 0.39 per head. Of course the actual figure will be a lot less, as not all will be supporters of the club. It needs to be pushed to the maximum, in my opinion. 

Ahhh we're getting there now not all fans have internet therefore not everyone can access the200 club an earlier post suggested it should be on the arria lounge provided they all go there  which I doubt therebein people NOT putting anything to the club at all

I think that's a very mixed bag of views, if i'm honest. 

 

Firstly, the internet is now almost as available as colour television. The fact that it (the 200) is an online initiative is not an attack on those without. Also, being online flies directly in the face of the deplorably unsuccesful "word of mouth" promotional tool, often used by those who need to keep themselves and their 'selfless' sacrifice - an oxymoron if ever one existed, but the very description used on various platforms to discuss drops in revenues - to ensure they remain in full relevance. 

 

The lounge, again, is not a taunting device for those who do not or cannot drink whilst out at the match. But the focus on those putting nothing in, has to move away from where the money currently is, to where it is not. One hears many figures of complimentaries, and other streams of individuals getting in for hee-haw. In my eyes, no one should be watching the football for free, at all.

 

Volunteers can be rewarded by being fed and watered at HT using a voucher/ticketing system, players' Wags and families can be permitted access to the Arria and in certain circumstances two or three in the Boardroom if the players so wished - but we're needing the £14 at the door, from everyone. 

 

Its a fairly straightforward thing, this. If they truly support their son/brother/partner/friend, they'll surely be happy enough to help assist in paying their wages as they go.

Can’t comment for all volunteers but me and the wife bought season tickets that we’ve yet to actually use it at a turnstile (possibly once in a weekend off from match day duties). But can’t comment on all circumstances as many are there before us or after, nor do I know if all have season tickets or not. I would hope that those that aren’t paid up in advance (season tickets or other memberships) would pay their way. Something that if doesn’t happen certainly should.

As for comps for players families etc, never understood it. Unless the comp is for someone with a loose cheque book and a fondness for writing large numbers then there’s nothing to be gained.

I wish more carried that attitude. Likewise, i've used barely any vouchers from mine, yet only missed Edinburgh at home, from having had use of sponsorship facilities etc. 

 

At the end of the day, however, people's relationship with their club essentially is their own business. They might get a good night's sleep on a Saturday, but that'll be about it.

Very fair points. I remember it being mentioned Bobby Gracy didn’t endear himself when point blank refusing to buy a season ticket! That was before he was “ousted”

I liked him. Got me in the Wick Academy Directors Lounge.

I have no problem with volunteers getting into games for free. Football as a whole in Scotland requires volunteers to survive and quite honestly takes advantage of people doing jobs that they really should be paying them for. By all means insist on these people paying in but you need to then compensate them fairly for services rendered.

Quite simply the club could not operate at the level it does it and offer the service it does without volunteers. Let's not ask them to give up what can be quite a considerable amount of time and energy then force them to pay a season ticket. Entirely false economy.

So basically you are saying they are volunteering to get into games for nothing and if they don't they will chuck it , interesting theory
