Sports Direct protest/ideas

You have and so have many others. There are around seven billion points of view in the world, each based on a personal perception based on personal experiences and beliefs. Going to a protest is as much as a choice as not going to the match and both are valid stances. I don't always agree with Mac in his comparing Benitez and Pardew but I can see his thinking behind it and he has a proper point based on his beliefs. One thing is though, if Ashley was suddenly bought out by Sheik Benevolence of the Benevolent House and chucked £250 trillion at the club Mac would find it difficult to get another season ticket. He has made a huge sacrifice, as have many others, in chucking it in.

To be frank. If you decide to still go, then ultimately you are still propping up the regime, so you can't moan about it being shite can you?

You wouldn't go to a shoe shop and buy a pair of shoes that are scratched and the sole is hanging off would you? No because it is a substandard faulty product.

Newcastle United is currently a substandard faulty product and if you are stupid enough to buy it then you deserve everything you get and stop fucking moaning!

I honestly don't think it's about being 'substandard' - only 9 teams better than us last season in terms of league position, class manager in charge, Kenedy at least should bring some flair and entertainment...it's not too bad really.

The problem is solely with Ashley. If we had all of the above and we knew that the owner was doing everything to support the team, there'd be no issue with the 'product'. Not for me anyway.

As it stands, we're managing all that despite him - imagine if he spent a bit of money and actually backed the manager.

You cant compare football clubs to shoe shops or pasty merchants or whatever, its not the same thing and nor is the principle.

I have been torn for years about continuing to go, yet here I am going into yet another season with a fully prepaid season ticket in my wallet. Shame on me? Maybe.

I think the slogan of this movement is a little misleading on the face of it - I dont think it is about Rafa leaving, it is about what it means if Rafa leaves - It is the final straw in a doomed relationship. Its not a case of Rafa is awesome and we cant support the club without him. Its a case of for fucks sake its happening for the hundredth time and this time we actually have a platform to soar from and it still makes no difference.

That sort of thing.

I am down in Brighton for a Stag Du so am missing the game and the protests this weekend.

Is it to ringfence stock so that any bona fide purchasers could find items are out of stock? If it does ringfence then it'll likely return items if the sale hasn't been confirmed. It might be better to add stuff every ten minutes so that it keeps refreshing.

Supposedly the SD site reserves what is in your basket for 24 hours, and so no one else can buy whats in it.

If its done by even a few hundred Mags regularly enough it will cause disruption to their ops.

If you have a tv license you’re propping up the regime, the beeb pay millions for broadcast rights, same with Sky subs or even BT. If you bank at Barclays (league sponsors) you’re propping up the regime, so all those folk can stop fucking moaning as well Wink

Emailed NUFC.com asking why they aren't mentioning it.


Much like the proposed match boycott tomorrow and people packing in when Rafa leaves, people who want to do that will do it whether I advocate it or not.

They have a lot of readers, but I think social media is more of an influence these days. Don't think a mention on nufc.com would have too much effect.

Would still be good to see them backing it though.
