Re: Home Kit Vote

Great choice in my opinion, hope it is out ready for the summer holidays as I hope to have one this year. Looking forward to seeing the choices for the away shirt.. Which I am sure will lead to someone complaining about the agenda for voting. :lol: :lol: Why would it? The away kit vote last year wa...

Season at risk of finishing early

Giving this its own thread as it looks fairly significant. Off-the-back of the Government saying further financial support will be in the form of loans, not grants, looks like the league could be ended. Up to 3/4s of NLN and NLS clubs are said to support ending the season this week if the Government...

Only 400 votes in the final, with the winning sash (the better design) winning with 250 (so a small percentage of the fanbase). More than half the DFCSG members didn’t vote, so clearly aren’t bothered by the “perk”. I hope next season sees a return to a public vote as these levels of engagement are ...

I am not going to feed your vitriol, signs of a desperate man to throw out insults. As I said before your posts are repetitive, argumentative & quite frankly boring. In that case, you must find yourself desperate Chuckles, given you only ever engage in personal jibes, rather than substantive debate...

Re: Home Kit Vote

Well the vote will be in soon for the shirt design, personally I prefer the hoops or broken hoops but accept some do not like it, each to there own. I will as usual buy several for my group regardless of whichever wins, as it is a way of helping the club. I have a wardrobe full of Darlo shirts that...

Re: Home Kit Vote

The basis of the complaint seems to be that you don't like kit 1 as a hooped option. That has then been translated as meaning that it is definitively a bad option, and that is a deliberate act to make people choose something else. As it happens I actually like option 1. Others have said they do as ...

My point is an issue like this, which is about the identity of the club, should be available to all fans. Not just the privileged few. 25 quid a year to join and can be done by monthly direct debit for about 2 quid a month. Hardly a massive hurdle stopping people from having the ability to vote. 18...

In fairness I was going off the most recently available information and acknowledged it wasn’t up-to-date. Lo was just plain wrong. But in terms of fans not attending, I don’t know how much it would impact. You could argue fans would be more likely to buy kits, to help the club out financially and ...

It also removes any suspicion the DFCSG are trying to load the vote. Baseless suspicions (board members confirm no agenda at all, and clearly explained the process) leading to a disputed vote output are clearly popular right now. Well they’d hardly come on and admit to it. You’d be a cracking detec...

Roughly how many members does the DFCSG have? Less than 350 voted in the semis, considerably less than 12 months ago (according to the club, in excess of 1800 votes were cast). About 800 according to the updates at the AGM in October. And if your figure of 1,000 is true, that would suggest nearly 2...

Fair comment Robbie I agree with the majority of what you say except the bit about providing a hooped option. Option 1 is a long way from the traditional hooped shirt that I would expect to see. It looks like I have sewn it together and made an absolute mess of it. For once I have to agree with Gra...

Re: Home Kit Vote

However I do massively disagree with the way this vote is being carried out. The DFCSG board let the cat out of the bag last year by saying they wanted change and excluding hoops altogether. Aren't a good proportion of the DFCSG board only 3 months in role due to 2 stepping down and 3 having to ret...

The kit design & final 4 choice process isn't directed by the DFCSG Board. There is a kit group, headed by Jon Saddington this year, that has worked with Joma to come up with the final four options presented to the fans. As the designs have progressed along they have been shared with both DFC & DFC...

Re: Home Kit Vote

"handful of supporters at the top" by that assume you mean those who were democratically voted for by the owners of the club? As Divas said there are opportunities to initiate change if so desired. And? Just because they were elected doesn’t mean they can’t pursue particular agendas. The DFCSG boar...

Notice you have failed to answer the question. Would be interested to know the answer as it might throw some light on your stance on the matter.

I am sure it was reported that we have about 1000 YOURCLUB members or was that a target? I am not sure that a bulk of the fan base is actually missing as a result. Also I am also pretty sure it's been confirmed before that generally speaking the same people who BtB tend to be the same ones who are ...

Re: Home Kit Vote

As for the vote and who gets to vote, I can see why it's done that way and it's fine with me (I would say that, as I get a vote), but plenty of clubs don't allow their fans a vote on the kit at all, so even if it's a limited pool of voters it's still more of a fan-perk than many get. Difference is ...

I don't think restricting it to YOURCLUB members is an issue. It is right that the owners get a say and that is what the YOURCLUB members are aren't they for their £20 a year membership. Yet come Boost The Budget, the club wants all fans to put money in, not just YOURCLUB members. Can't have it bot...

Please don't start yet another war over this, but if you say the "younger" fans would always go for hoops year after year,(which is proven), is it not fare to give the "older" fans,(who of course diminish by the year), a chance to get their choice once in a while? If it means "loading it" against h...
