Bristol Rovers Dustbin Thread


Recommended Posts

I'll give it 6 months tops before people get fed up driving an extra 10-20mins to the supermarket each week and go crawling back to their local sainsburys.

 

If there is one thing in the human spirit you can rely on its laziness. 

And money - if its closer and/or cheaper that'll save a few pennies which will help them buy even more to stuff their faces.

There is a guy on the Made in Bristol facebook page saying he's never going to shop in Sainsburys again, on the ITV Westcountry page says its' no problem as they'll be in league 1 next season playing City . . .. . nothing that odd with that maybe, but the idiot is pictured in a Liverpool kit !!!

Administration anyone... :fingerscrossed:

Hopefully not as Sainsbury's do employ a lot of people, but saying that there is bound to be some knock on from a drop in sales of Special Brew at stores across north Bristol due to Ragass fans boycotting said stores.

I can understand their frustration, but really I can only echo what others have already said. How on earth would a small backwater football club compete with one of the largest retail giants in the western world? As has been mentioned sainsburys provably contract a whole team of the slimiest lawyers going specifically to deal with these legal wrangles - particularly considering their experiencing continual decline in profits.

Furthermore, the UWE stadium was a complete con anyway. How can you call it the UWE stadium when only two UWE sports teams were allowed to use it for one game a year? It was always going to be the Bristol Rovers stadium @ UWE. And on that subject, a stadium that would be consistently half empty would send them the way of the likes of Darlington!

In all, whilst it is disappointing for Bristol that a second national class sports facility isn't being built, it is most pleasing that Rovers are definitely not getting one and will be spending another few years at Bristol premier non league standard cabbage patch.

Made in Bristol TV channel Facebook page, check out this beauty -

This shows that supermarkets are not about building communities they are about making huge profits. The way they have treated farmers over the years shows their true colours. Rotten to the core.

They are no different then any other business, they want to buy cheap and sell high to make maximum profit,

While the farmers don't get treated well, but again it's the farmers fault, for everyone that refuse to deal with a supermarket another one will appear and undercut them,

If they all refused to sell to the supermarket then the problem wouldn't exist but they do

"Bristol Rovers is a fantastic football club, with a proud tradition and a fan-base envied by dozens of clubs higher up the football league, and which deserves a home that is fit-for-purpose.

The arrogance of their club is astonishing. Who exactly are these dozens of clubs higher up the league that are envious of Roverzzz prowed tradition and fan base?? They are basically implying that they have a prouder tradition and better fan base than every club in League One!

 

Laughable.

 

It's this kind of arrogance that will no doubt see them waste further money on an appeal, despite the fact that very few succeed in the Court of Appeal.

Indeed, I mean I'm sure the likes of Swindon, Bradford, Sheffield United, Portsmouth wished they had gates of 6k and take 27k to the biggest game in their history....

They are so far up their own ass that if people would see them wali g it would just be an ass with legs

Right so sainsburys acted legally but certainly not morally. Why don't we do the same let's fill a sainsburys car park of choice full of gasheads  before opening and then when they open all enter the store. Fill our trolleys full of goodies and make our way to the check outs let the cashier put all the good through the till and then drop the bombshell that it is far to expensive and walk out the shop. None of this is illegal and they couldn't do a thing about it.

They would struggle to fill a car let alone a car park.

god I must get on with some work but very distracted for some reason. Can't think what it is.

Me too.

 

Grim day for Rovers, but get the feeling that the grimmest is yet to come.

 

Broke as **** already, and now liable for court costs, as well as no new ground; don't see them doing this "overtaking" of us their fans s frequently crow about any time soon.

 

Need to be getting rid of that board, and sharpish, if they want to avoid disaster.

It isn't as simple as that.  The market for farming produce is utterly dominated by supermarkets.  There is, in essence, no market for their goods outside of the supermarkets themselves so they are merely puppets and have no other choice.

 

They need support from the government (laugh!) - they can't do it with piecemeal demos or refusing to sell, thus nailing their own coffin shut.

Pretty sure there is grounds for that being a criminal offence.  Damange to goods for starters.
