Compensation forfeit ?

I have a suggestion for all us season ticket holders.

How many would be prepared to forfeit their option of compensation made by the club today and just let the club keep the additional income?

I guess it would add up to a significant amount of additional money (£50k-£60k as a wild guess) for the club and would be a way of us all combining together to show our true support the the club.

The club has "player sponsorship" so this could be a one off "club sponsorship" by all the ST holders.

I'm in !

That's a really good idea would could sponsor....... Toby Flood. And every time he scores a try or kicks at goal. The announcer would say "Toby Flood sponsored by the season ticket holders"

Add me in too - Great idea. Can the club make it 'Option 6' so we can positively select it?

I'm not a season ticket holder but I would add in the same amount as a south stand ticket holder would get back.

Brilliant idea Wens. What next. Support SK collection boxes? Seriously, though, I think it is a good way of showing the sort of old-style club spirit which a poster elsewhere has suggested vanished with professionalism.

If Semore were to sit at the entrance to KP on a match day, dressed in scruffs with bucket & piece of old cardboard with 'Rugby club to support' he would make a fortune.

Sorry, just my weird sense of humour.

You could put Mick Hogan in stocks outside and let ST holders chuck wet sponges at him for a quid a pop! 😁

Gents, sadly I'm not a season ticket holder as sadly spend too much time in the Middle East at the moment to make it financially viable, but just wanted to thank you for putting a positive spin on an opportunity for the club, and even if just suggested , your offer proves why Falcons have the best and most passionate fans in the country. Respect , gentlemen

In the absence of sponge cakes could we use rock cakes ?
