It's not a mistake. It's ******* clever. You lot gave them that vote though to run with. I hope what you saw about this stadium that you can't tell us about was truly magic to make you all vote that way, despite a majority % of non-SAB supporters thinking different.
I was referring to the KUMB poll, not the straw poll at the SAB meeting. If the SAB poll is the one you are referring to, then I’ve stated clearly in my previous post that the majority yes vote came with a lot of caveats. I’ve re-read the minutes and it is says that at the end an overwhelming yes vote was received to the straw poll. That isn’t actually a lie, so I have no problem with that being publicised. What the club do have is 29,000 words (nearly 200 pages) detailing a range of opinions including many that are negative or sceptical. The SAB collated opinions; the SAB fed those opinions back verbatim. In addition to speaking to fellow season tickets holders and members, several SAB members asked for feedback from this site. I’d be interested to know if you think we could have done anymore in terms of obtaining opinions.
I’m actually quite proud to be part of something that may well give the club leverage in terms of negotiation. What the club will be able to say is that in principle the supporters are receptive to a move IF the terms are right for the club. They can then also say that there are grave reservations about playing in an athletics stadium.
The SAB supporters have given up their time to try and partake in a positive, constructive method of collating opinions to be forwarded onto the club. This isn’t a secret group. All our names are on the website. It won’t take a huge amount of deduction to work out who I am. I put myself up because I like all the other SAB members care greatly about this club and wanted to ensure that those in power received as much input as possible via this channel. I, as stated previously, see this as one method of communication, not necessarily the only one.
The ‘you lot’ you refer to are genuine fans who have done everything they can (and will continue to do so) to ensure the club receive the opinions of the supporters. Obviously, what the club do with those opinions is out of our hands. I would imagine if they were to misrepresent them though, then SAB members wouldn’t shy away from expressing their disappointment. Only time will tell. My offer of being PM’d with questions or thoughts still stands and, even though the deadline for submitting feedback has passed, will still pass them onto the club. I’d welcome, rather than having a pop at a group that want to do something constructive, your questions, opinions or thoughts. It’s an open invite.
