I was about to make the point; close down the branches and have one big fucking Hibs Club.But the meeting's closed.
 
The point is that the Hibs Club is owned by the Hibernian Supporters Association. The clue is in word Association.An association of Branches who worked together to start it from scratch before the present Trustees were born. They would all be turning in their graves at the shambles now. These people were upstanding fair Hibernians, whose first interest was Hibs, unlike the present leadership who are invisible when it comes to fairness and transparency.
If the relentless persecution and whispering camgaign against Cliff had failed and he had received the support of the Trustees that he deserved, he would not have withdraw his nomination.
Intimidation towards the candidate Clifford King was not only tolerated but supported by the present Trustees. The readers of the Bounce can make their minds up what they would have done in Cliffs shoes.
He was standing against Mike Riley for the position of Chair. Mr Riley took it upon himself to try to dig up any dirt against Cliff. He took himself up to the BMC Club where Cliff had been a member and tried to get information from there to try to blacken his personality/name etc. Of course Cliff and St. Pats Branch were outraged. A letter of complaint was unanimously passed and sent to the Trustees as was a personal complaint from Cliff.
Both were swept under the carpet by the Trustees. Not surprising really as the Invisible man and another Trustee told me personally that Riley had done no wrong in their eyes.
I'm convinced that Cliff would have had a good shout at victory and making a little bit of history into the bargain becoming the first person of colour to have held a senior position in the Hibernian Supporters Association.

For your information Angus. Riley has told members that when he gets elected, unopposed, for his second stint, he will ensure that certain individuals will be kicked out and that he will endeavour to to expel the 500 strong St. Patricks Branch from the Association.
The Trustees know this but are either complicit or more likely feart do day anything. Heroes.

Not knowing much about this, Id wager the St Pats must be one of, if not, the biggest supporters club in the association.
Might not be in this Riley guys interests no tae poke the bear too much.

Whats the big beef with him against Mr King?... and if the lad is going around trying tae get some dirt on another person standing, then this guy needs emptied. Pronto.

What is the beef between other branches and St Pats? Im sure @invisible man could give us a wee insight?

Oh well the whole situation sounds crap to me.I use the club to see games because I don't have Sky and to go to the Social Nights.I doubt I will be enticed to any meetings unless it's to meet the players.

I'm a member of the Milton Mowbray branch, and I'm not aware of any great resentment or antagonistic dramas. I just use the club to have a pre-match and post-match pint, like many others I guess.
As far as I'm concerned, in Sunnyside we're all Hibs fans. I've never asked anyone what branch they're in.
Guess I'm just naive.

What stopped you?

You obviously cannae back yersel up. :5:

No problems.:35:

I am a St Pats member and I feel they are a proper progessive branch. Seems a huge number of fellow Hibernians agree. I get to help with wonderful projects like the redidication of the graves of Hibernian Greats for example. Seeing my branches' flag escorting our cup winners that sunday in 2016 filled me with pride! Thats a piece of history for me. Its galling that its been trashed, by mistake or no.
St Pats are pretty professional in their correspondence with members; there is no bitching or sly comments against any other members or branches that I have seen. It just would have been good to try and understand where other folks are coming from. From the outside looking in, some folks in the association need tae temper their horlicks intake a wee bit, they're coming over a wee bit daft

Ah the Hibs Club!

When there's not much to bitch about the football club along comes the Hibs Club for a bit of scandal lol

I throughly enjoyed most of my days there, despite the fact I was on the Council.

The more things change the more they stay the same.

If you are meaning other than a match day which I think you are then thats poor imo.

He gives you £15 a year or whatever it is now, for access to the club, if full, then hes fucked. Every little helps as they say, plus he paid 50 quid if I mind right as I done his application before I left st pats committee.

He may come on match day. Bring a guest (when allowed) and spend say 20/30 quid or more.

Yes more should use it outwith matchday but what % of members actually do?
Maybe though, he may book the hall for a function with being a member. Who knows.

Not very appealing is it outwith match days.

This "oh but you dinnae use it other than match days" pish gets on my tits. A member contributes just by being a member. Shouldnae be challenged all the time if they use the place other than a matchday.
If they wanna they will. Maybe they dinnae like being under a rule book and green jackets etc. Can freely walk into a pub that is more appealing than the hibs club imo.

That’s not what meant and I apologise if it came over like that.
