I want to renew, but what's the price, and how (if at all) am I going to be compensated/incentivised for my loyalty in the face of severe exploitation and misdeeds in the past.

You see there is the rub.

You want to be "compensated" when I can't see that you have been injured in any way whatsoever; and moreover, it seems clear to most that the club (your club) is haemorrhaging money so 'compo' is the last thing that should be on the board of directors mind at this point when they are searching for new backers, sponsors, and advertisers.

You want an incentive? Well here's one.

If you are a Platinum/Gold STH, how about the club knocking 300 off YOUR season ticket and then asking YOU to make voluntary contribution of, let's say 300.00 to go towards the rebuilding of YOUR club and its reputation.


Its not a stupid idea that and I did wonder if there might be a proposal along those lines. Perhaps it'll be part of the "2 year package" whatever that turns out to be.

Another idea I read is that there should be shares issued in the club for supporters to subscribe money to. Again, not a daft idea as long as there's some honesty about the fact that:
a. The shares will always be "minority" shares and therefore have no power, and
b. They won't ever be worth anything and will therefore, in economic terms, be the same as paying extra for a season ticket.
Nice to hang on the loo wall though (Sm151)
