    The Atyeo - ticket suggestion

    I know a number of people who do not attend a single league game a season because they can not justify potd prices and can not commit to a season ticket, at their current rate. Your suggestion would hit the spot perfectly for that particular supporter.

    Anyone not quoted here? ITFC Preview

    Oh yes, I remember - we have been through this before (not caring about your reputation). You're either a sociological freak of human nature or you are lying to protect your precious ego. I'm not sure which, tbh.

    I bet you would. Your online fishing style has rendered you obsolete to the point that you're a laughing stock though, so I advise caution.

    UPDATE - THERE WILL BE NO WALKOUT - CANCELLED

    In case you haven't noticed, football is a capitalistic, consumer based industry and the Bristol brand attracts a five figured attending sum. There were prophets all along who objected; there are still people arguing "we need to accept price increases if we want to compete". I for one, am very glad that a majority seem to finally be getting pissed off by Bristol Sport and the arrogance of it.

    UPDATE - THERE WILL BE NO WALKOUT - CANCELLED

    Football is too expensive across the board and no matter of banter is going to change that, especially when it's agreed upon therein. Footballers paid tens of thousands, ***** paying thousands, for years ..... you have a problem... I see the only solution as being mass revolt. The problem is: there's too many dumb ass sheep .... meh!! The whinging therefore is stupid, Cupid. Stop moaning and stop paying. You create the world you live in.

    UPDATE - THERE WILL BE NO WALKOUT - CANCELLED

    So the club not pandering to OAP's (the genuine wealth of this country), the disabled (not necessarily the victims, compared to the Private Rent victims), and the kids - who are too entitled anyway - are being protested against. I agree Football is immoral. I also believe the People need to stand up and take responsibility for themselves.

    Blood donors required at AG today!

    I fainted when I tried so they said "thanks but no thanks". My fiancé has a rare type of blood (O negative) and gave so regularly that she is now low on iron herself. She will again in the future but not so routinely (not every 17 weeks). I urge anyone thinking of donating to do so, any of us may need it at a minutes notice.

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    Final word on the matter from me as we're going in circles; this is not a legal document and the wording has not been as thorough or consistent as it may have been - hence the seeming moving of goal posts. The people I refer to (four, of the top of my head - three physically disabled, one mentally) are not defrauding the system. The system has enabled them to live more comfortably than many (non-specific number) working people who are struggling to make ends meat due to the crippling price of private rent. Do I care about them also? Yes I do. Can they afford luxuries like football? Absolutely not. Football as a whole is ethically corrupt, Bristol Sport are a representation of that and nothing surprises me any more. POTD prices are disgusting and have been brought about by market forces. Too many people complying with it for too long (my original point). Anyway, have a good day, keep up the good work and let's all work together to help bring about a fairer world for ALL.

    Thought you had more class Jamie?

    He's a mixed-up bloke. He denounced his boyhood club Everton for their local neighbours Liverpool because he could not take the 'banter' from his mates after an Everton derby win, while playing for Liverpool. Would you trust anyone who jumped ship to R*vers?

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    "The individuals using the services I support..." is a generalisation on your part. I maintain, all of the individuals we know are financially better of than some of the individual working families we know - who can not justify the price of watching City. There is no discount for them. It is not as fairly means tested, across the board, as you seem to be making out.
  11. WTFiGO!?!

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    It wasn't specific. We personally know people who have more surplus income, due to the benefit system, than other working families who could not possibly justify the cost of watching City. The bold statement is a generalisation but not wholly inaccurate.

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    Having experience first hand of the issue I can assure you that the country is looking after those less fortunate a lot better than is typically understood, financially. My fiancé used to work in a post office where she had access to numbers and could see for herself that disabled people were on a better income than many of her own community. I do accept Harry's point that some people can not do anything to affect change to their circumstances, so concessions are validated for that.

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    The collective 'we' are not socially conscious enough to consider minority groups due to individualism. So therefore it is noticable that the collective 'we' has now had its outrage triggered because of the treatment by the authorities of a minority group. The powers that be at AG has faced prescious little objection to just about anything, in fact the majority seem to be lapping it up more and more, year on year. The broader football community is the same. I am suggesting that hubris and the supposed lack of consideration of the 'little man' by the authorities' is a direct result of the long-term compliance of the majority. Incidentally, there are certain groups on benefits who are financially far better of than some hard-working families who can not afford to go to City. It could be argued that why should City automatically subsidise tickets because a person is disabled when I know disabled people who are better of than non-disabled people? But that is not the point - and I await possible abuse for this view.

    How to counter Bristol Sport's attitude

    The issue is that too many people have continued to comply with what is now little more than a commercial whore. Supply for demand, market values and all that. Until the majority rebel against it by not buying into it, it will continue and they will continue to be ripped off. That is the hard, cold truth. We deserve the world we create.

    Following Sunday, I heard they were doing everything they could to get the game called off!
