Are those supposed to be joke arguments? Well they made me laugh anyway.ty cobb wrote: ↑Wed Sep 06, 2017 2:30 pmI don't think fans have put in more than Eales so I'm afraid I disagree with you. But then that's probably because I'm not silly enough to think fans paying to attend a match is the same as the money Eales has stuck in.
We are millions in debt and trying to save up to buy a stadium. Once the debt has been paid off and we own our stadium I'll start to take your view that's fans are being ripped off more seriously but the fact we may be making a small profit after years of large losses do not strike me as a good reason to stop increasing revenues where we can.
Fortunately for me, I'm not silly enough to think that fans buying match tickets is purely about being "entertained" for 90 minutes.
And fortunately for me, I'm not silly enough to think that Eales puts money into the club for the love of it.

And you define rip off however you want. For me, being the 2nd most expensive club in the division is a huge undermining of your non-argument.
