Yes we do give our freebies now and then but not as many as some think especially that Sag, and it certainly doesn’t or intended to ‘bolster’ our attendance.

I'd be surprised if free tickets are counted in the attendance figure anyway.

Thought it was paid tickets only.

200, 300 tickets for kids every game? Say 2 or 3 extra stewards needed per 100? £100 per steward for the day. £300 outlay? Sell 7 kits to the 300 of them & that's your money back, or 100 of the 300 kids buying a drink.

2K is just an imaginary number made up to form a stick with which to beat “they Teds”.......that number was then multiplied by a different imaginary number then compared to their actual attendances and the answer was that they are of similar size to West Ham, Wolves, Middlesbrough, Derby and Blackburn.

It took a few years but scientists have finally worked out #Gaslogic in action.....

For a shite club such as them it generally isn’t too bad, but how they continue to tell everyone how amazing their fanbase is and how loyal they are, then it is absolutely piss poor. Summed up in a nutshell in @Silvio Dante‘s post.

Then in typical Sag fashion, make up complete bullshit as below:

If we are missing 2000, can always do what other teams over the river do, give loads away to bolster the attendance....but money's no object to some.

So how many of the 15,000 season tickets were given away then? 😂

On the Stanley matchday thread they`re saying that the bloke who scored the penalty had coins thrown at him (mentioned it in his post match interview apparently).

The family club on show again.

So they do have a few quid flying about the place! They literally can't afford to be doing that, they have a stadium to save up for.

For once I don’t believe that. A rovers fan with money in his pocket. :laughcont:

They probably take all their old francs and pesetas with them for this very purpose.

To be fair , the chap who scored the pen was goading the rovers fan's. Never understand why the don't just celebrate in front of there own fans.

It's a misunderstanding, it was a £2 coin and it was a takeover bid.

Our potential support puts us right up there with the likes of Middlesbrough, Southampton, West Ham, Wolves, Blackburn, Derby etc etc.

Undoubtedly the most deluded idiots on the Planet.

They never have and never will have the support that Derby, Wolves, West Ham etc have. 

Where the hell do they get the nerve to constantly accuse us of having delusions of grandeur when they regularly trott out shit like this?

I’ve never heard a City fan compare our support with clubs like that and we get considerably more than 6500 turning up to our home games.

Apparently, if a stand is open, it needs to be staffed on the basis that stand could be full.

Probably exceptions to that, but that was one the rule of thumb.

It is a complete obsession with how many they get every week - odd behaviour in the least I don't know any other support that does it.  I diagnose a severe bout of Attendicitis with no cure

Even by Gaslogic criteria that comment is just plain mental. We may as well say our potential support is up there with United, Barca, Bayern and Juve.......it’s about as realistic as that guff!!

You mention "realistic" there and I think this is the key:- reality (ie that which cannot be denied or fibbed about or dreamed up or manipulated or massaged in the mind: the league table, which does not lie remember) has them wedged between Mk Dons and Shrewsbury, and trailing "the likes of" Wycombe, Fleetwood, Burton and Rochdale.

Who wants to dwell on and inhabit that reality, that undeniable, unbearable truth? When you can dream up your own more pleasant, alternative "reality" where your support could be up there with West Ham or Blackburn (imagine imagining your support could be "right up there" with Blackburn!)

I know what I would do, if we were wedged between Mk Dons and Shrewsbury, and trailing the likes of Wycombe. ...... and your crowd was smaller than Leyton Orient, of L2, at the weekend.....

If you've got to ask ..........

b) You're a sag

I Understand that for you the Sags and the feelings towards them and the rivalry with them means little 

For many of us of middle age , and some younger and older they will always be a subject of real dislike and something to take the p out of at every opportunity

Some of us remember 82 when they tried to Nick our ground , and their loud arrogance during parts of the 80s and 90s 

Many remember events before and during those periods and some after but there are many that really despise em with good reason

Personally if this thread , only reminds our younger fans that they are a laughable stain on Bristol it will have done its job

 

Plus it’s really enjoyable to take the p out of them 

;)

 

Ok thanks for that ... was just confused that’s all ! 

For me I probably hate Swindon more than the gas but that’s purely down the the 14/15 season
