    So sad

    Roy Keane and Paul Jewell were both gone by 2012. So I really don't get these excuses. The current situation is Evans making and he must be happy with it.

    New home kit...

    The sizes don't have any standard increase. The difference between XL and 2XL is 6cm. Most other jumps are 4cm and some only 2cm.

    Some U23 team being assembled!

    Unless I missed it Idah's contract situation still needs sorting. This is the final year and he can start talking to potential suitors in January. I keep watching for news...

    It makes no difference to me. I'd like to see it. But that doesn't mean I want our football club to suffer unilaterally while it's all legal and above board.

    And just to add there are people suggesting that deregulating drugs would be in peoples interest. Until it ruined too many lives I guess. Don't we always want the way we don't have it...

    Yes I know. And it is difficult to regulate. And we are a hullava way down the rud now bor..

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    Yes it's a poor comparison. At the same time as smoking was being regulated gambling was being deregulated. As far back as you can trace human history you will also find gambling. So when gambling was regulated it was done in the clear knowledge of the pitfalls and the need to do so. Where we are now is probably worse than anytime in history because people can more easily do their gambling in a secret life between them and their phone. Even if the companies self-regulate they have no idea what other companies are involved.

    I don't know what membership was. I'm guessing £30 and £20 for juniors. Is that right? So that's a massive increase if you take your kids to football. And having an away membership is an even bigger increase for season ticket holders who go because they now appear to have had that £30 taken away. Season ticket holders also have the added "incentive" of seeing casual tickets being brought in line to what they pay per match. I didn't think it the old system was fair as it was and I don't see why season ticket holders should get any away points at all. membership was included in the cost of a season ticket so once they have that I don't think they should get anymore advantage over a member. I think there should be just one membership for both home and away. Having two penalises fans for who have to travel long distances to both home and away games. When I was an away season ticket holder for a few seasons it used to cost me £20. If I hadn't been a home season ticket holder I'm guessing it would have cost me £50. (£20 + £30). And for that I had to make a commitment not to send back anymore than 2 tickets. (I think it was 2). That was 15 years ago. So taking that all into account I guess £50 and £30 Junior would be fair for priority membership with standard membership at £35 and £20? 3m is a massive sum of money to magnanimously turn away. Our costs go up massively in the PL. It would put us at a heck of a disadvantage. Anyway, this is all off topic and I still don't see what this has to do with being a community club. Or even a community orientated club. BTW Kingo as an aside, Woodfordes gave away thousands of bottles of beer at the Blackburn game. However poor old Duncan missed out.....

    What would you have liked to have seen Kingo?
  16. nutty nigel

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    Yes but if you look at some of the statements made since you will see what I mean. I haven't brought one but I also get why people have. Would have been better if everyone had brought standard membership but I guess that was never going to happen. But surely we can't measure the community values of our club by the price we pay for memberships / tickets? Or do people really see community measured by what it costs them for these things?

    I don't see the clubs that aren't self funding making decisions based on personal morals either. Whilst I don't like where we are right now with gambling that's where we are. Morals are all very well but they are also individual. Who decides for everyone if something is morally wrong? In my view the membership is not well thought out especially as it penalises families. I haven't brought one and won't. It may be easier to get an acceptable scheme if we all approach it as a community rather than demanding whatever suits us personally.

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    Exactly Kingo. You'd personally like to see the club run according to your morals
  19. nutty nigel

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    I like that this is a community club and wouldn't change it for the world. But I don't see community as something that can be measured by how it affects me or whether it disadvantages itself to fit in with my morals. What do you see as a community Hoola? Kingo, the paragraph beginning I know this is radical...
  20. nutty nigel

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    Only because you stated quite clearly that our club should run its business to suit your morals. If you missed my opinion it's that it's our own choice whether we buy a shirt or not. I would like gambling and associated advertising to be regulated far more than it is but that's not an issue for our club. Not unless they comply with all the other morals of every Tom, Rick and Kingo.

    Leo Vegas......now dafabet

    But that was what you were saying. You also seem to be arguing that I'm in favour of the deregulation which has taken us here. I'm not. I liked how it used to be. Your comparison with cigarette advertising is not well thought out. Because as far as I know legislation was never changed to encourage people to smoke. But it was changed to encourage people to gamble.

    Let's go the whole job and fit in with your morals Kingo? Or mine? Or Duncs?
  23. nutty nigel

    We live in a democracy and over the years democratic governments have deregulated the gambling industry to where it is today. So whilst I understand people taking a personal stand because of their own morals it's wrong to expect others or our club to do so. The people who make these decisions at our club are charged with competing with others within the boundaries of what's legal in our democratic country. Some of the stuff I've read on social media questioning if we area community club because of this seems plain daft to me. There's a lot goes on in the world that is legal and against my morals but all I can do is make a personal stand or lobby politicians to make changes to the law.
