  1. LMAO protest? Sure.... This country respects the opinions of the people and the people admire those that challenge authority... You people support a corporation. Financial metrics over a wider commercial market mean more than the satisfaction of even 50k paying members. Bring in delegation and watch the boys club in charge change their tune. How much will Foxtel and co contribute to the crony club once a team that doesn't care or doesn't invest the $$ gets dropped out of the prime comp? Not sure why people think that Babbel is not cut for it. It's easy to motivate a team of **** ****s when they have winning momentum. I guess those of you with better knowledge in this will see something I don't.
  2. word slut 2018/19. The lesser known adult film award.
  3. Wow, oldest trick in the book fools the general population yet again.
  4. Definitely not but I was waiting on getting **** back for that. Happy to be a misfit in life my friend.
  5. Mate, whilst I understand where you were coming from on the parts of your post you're defending, the truth is i was only triggered because I was shocked by such a one sided post from a guy I expected more from. The reason I took it personally is because I've put up with a lot of **** from the club over the years and yet I kept my mouth shut, reacting only where it involved me and with whom it involved. Meanwhile, there were always level-headed people like you that brought those discussions out in the open whenever there was public interest. I don't give a **** about the ****s complaining on social media. Social media is a disease to mankind imo. Likewise if anyone else showed such a dismissive attitude I wouldn't care less. But now I'm finally at a crossroads with this club and so when I came here expecting to find some constructive discussion I was rather shocked to see how you perceive these guys in this situation. TLDR: I was more shocked that a comment like that came from you. (Lacking empathy)
  6. Wow man, this is quite an insolent response from you imo. I know of a lot of people that look to be getting well shafted in this wash up, myself included. I'm just waiting on the official letters to come through with exact seating before having to make some decisions on multiple memberships. So tell me, should I look at this from the point of view of customer satisfaction, game day experience or a purist football fan? Which part are you suggesting I'll be unnecessarily complaining about? I get that **** changes in life but I could've done without all the memberships I held onto the last few seasons. Plus sometimes you just hang in there expecting **** to eventually work out and they just keep letting you down. If you know something I don't, I'm happy to hear it.
  7. Nanny state is a term that suggests protectionist order. We're not being protected, our laws are designed for civil order.
  8. Active support would still be around.
  9. ****, maybe I'll start to be taken more seriously about my Gulag merchandise.
  10. Forum needs more FFA Gulag T-shirts. Applying for trade mark before it gets snapped up.
  11. Every time I travel overseas.... Every time!
  12. I get it, but I suggest most people should learn a new phrase in their limited database of a brain: virtue signalling. They don't care! We think we are progressive but all do is we place value on how things look.
  13. I only just saw this and whilst I agree with every thing said (in fact applaud it) I can't help but feel that the writing was on the wall for a long time now, not because (we were right all along) but because the responsible fight was never attempted. I warn that the following may trigger some that don't read my words carefully. When **** hit the fan late last season the common reaction on this very forum was to immediately throw the freedom of speech defence, to which I reiterate is not available in this country under the fictionalised imagery that most believe it to be. I only use this as an example to prove that using an invalid argument to fight a rational but undesirable one will only lead to failure. (The FFA's argument being the rational one unfortunately) Some of you may say that some battles may be lost but Good will ultimately prevail to win the war. The war I present is that between the fans and the administration. To that I offer this: in beyond good and evil, Nietzsche suggests that past philosophers failed to somewhat identify truly moral practise, suggesting that they devised principles that were really their biased ideas of what a person should do. So to me he's questioning the intentions of these great minds. I see the morals used in the argument by the administration (eg FFA) in the exact same way. Their argument is a classic strawman (example family friendly) and not once did I see any attempt at intellectual articulation against the ridiculousness of their arguments. Instead we argued to defend a socialist agenda and defend our freedoms as fans. So let's discuss semantics. FFA related members are stated using the word"fan" but really we're"paying customers". Now if you want to have a serious discussion about rights, I suggest someone bring along a copy of the latest consumer legislation. Here's the most important point: Football in this country is a great metaphor for the political environment we have. The reason why'fans' are more vocal in football than the majority of other sports is because, imo, the majority come from a back ground where we know what it means to be run by an evil regime. Hopefully not first hand for most, but definately over the last few generations. The terrible extremes of true hell I do not hope to see. WE ARE NOT THERE, and we cannot compare the FFA to Mao, (yet) but the ideals that it starts from is scarily similar. This is why it's important to defend it correctly. TLDR: the fight is necessary but the artillery is weak. The biggest shame is that we have this great forum to discuss these things but instead people get pissed off whenever someone disagrees with them, and very few have ever shown interest in other's opinions. But that's the internet for you.
  14. You been listening to Blueprint for Armageddon?
