Conveniently miss? Or just have no idea what you're on about?

I'm one of those incredibly loyal supporters btw. My opinion here is just as valid as yours and his and anyone else on either side of the debate

I dont feel entitled to watch this game for free while others are paying to get in, who paid the exact same as me for the season ahead.
I think I explained it perfectly. What part of my points are you having difficulty with?

Indeed. And that's the precise point.

The club could say...

"Recognition needs given to the unwavering loyalty and support given by you the Hibs supporters during this worldwide pandemic. Incredibly you've found the means to support your club. We appreciate it. And we not only support it we want to recognise it. Because of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions we can only let in under a quarter of our capacity on Thursday evening. As such all those season ticket holders who can't get a ticket for Thursday will be able to watch on Hibs TV free of charge. A small token but hopefully some way to us saying "Thank you". "
Good to see someone understands the actual issue

Nah, I'd still be against it.


"This type of supporter"?
What kind of supporter is that exactly?

One who's paid his money the same as you?
Just has a different opinion on what I'm entitled to and not.
"Entitled to".

Maybe look at Motherwell and how they're responses to their supporters "entitlement" following their parting of their hard earned cash...

Which is a great gesture by them.
But I wouldn't be sitting there expecting something like that.

I'm done with all of this, I don't have an issue with hibs charging

Doesn't mean I'm any more of less of a supporter
All that "this kind of supporter" chat has out me off big time

I'm out

Reminds me of my first visits on Hibs forums way back In 2002. To dare constructively criticise as a paying supporter was deemed somehow so very unloyal....

This used to be a forum where you were not up against admins pro actively ridiculing you for daring to have strong opinions.

It was once I thought the Bounce DNA to welcome such passionate opinions etc.

It still is the bounce DNA and as an admin, I am firmly in the camp of they are taking the piss. Like other bouncers, admins have their own opinions, we generally don't have a bounce admin opinion, we disagree a lot.

Remember the Straiton issue ???? nowadays there wouldn't be a wimper on here

I think there would be Daz.

Definitely not as strong as in years gone by though

Fuck me! Be better if no tickets were available, as the " DEBATE" about the allocation of said tickets is truly unbelievable bouncers 🤔

I think a lot would think of the money , the great players etc . Maybe its an age thing but i'd guess the active posters on here these days on average are younger than before and tend to accept things that lots wouldn't before . Possibly the reason we don't see a lot of the old faces anymore ??

Yup, along with many using other social media, leaving, scunnered etc.

It was Straitongate II that inadvertently created "Hibees Bounce" in a roundabout way.

Grandmaster Crowther refused to allow Hibs.net to officially campaign against Straitongate II and was one of many reasons why a counter site was set up.👍✅

Another reason being that lots of us were already banned from his site anyway.😉.

I was vociferously opposed to StraitonGate II and my completely unofficial theory as to why Hibs.net never campaigned against StraitonGate II was that Crowther was bought off by Hibs for the job offer that subsequently came his way though to be fair to someone who is no longer with us he was also Hibs devoted and could never see anything wrong in any of the club custodians decisions however divisive.

I digress and we will never know🤔 but I think you are right there is an edge missing these days across all websites and not the same hard critical thought.🤔

I’m not so concerned about this match but what does concern me is that we are a few weeks away from the season starting and I sincerely hope the club has plans in place to fairly allocate tickets for our home games so as every ST holder gets a fair chance of seeing a game.

Has the allocation been mentioned ??
As far as I'm aware mate it was 2000 + another 2700. I agree, people who have ploughed money in last season should have first dibs, but there'll always be someone disappointed. Same as ppv for said match, folk who had an St last year should get for free.

I respect the job all admins do. And I particularly respect a Hibby like you as an admin on here. Who gets it and calls it as it is. Different opinions are a good thing between you admins and us others. I just feel recently off page opinions are not as welcome as they once were.

Aye but there was no "DEBATE" about that ???? I see other batch go on sale at 10 am , obviously i'll be in the wrong here but that aint handy if you're at work and it isn't in an office gasp . FFS some of us don't even have a team you know

Do you think so?
Can’t say I noticed any admin reining in a Bouncer for having a different opinion. There’s plenty different views expressed, and as 1875 made clear there’s no party whip that admins follow or administer.
I enjoy different views being expressed. Sometimes it nearly makes me think!
The stupid posts, making up ‘facts’ like the Ponzi stuff are clearly not worth debating, just ridiculing.
Reckon Forza has a point, but I also found Hammi to be making complete sense, just a different view.
