Yes Pat, I agree with you on this. As a MyFC member, I made a commitment to treat this whole thing seriously, with the best intentions of the Club involved in the foremost of my mind. If they can't be ars**d to vote on issues like this, how many will be ars**d to renew next year. I know I will but how many will join me??? Hopefully those that voted haven't voted for the Gills replica away kit!!!!! chainsaw

It's a disappointing response but I wonder how much of it was to do with the way the vote was presented - ie, no other options, vote right now, total fait accompli (again, arguably). To a certain extent, why bother voting if it's been formulated in such a way that a yes vote is assured? (I did vote, for the record.)

Why bother voting? Thats ALL that £35 gets the members tho!

 

Surely all the votes will be of a 'right now' element when it comes to team selection etc...

 

This isn't a dig at the those who voted, or the choice they made - more a concern over the long term interest in the project known as MyFC

Thing is, something like 13,809 people voted. Now if it was a close result, say 51% said yes, that's just a little over 7000 or just a quarter of members wanting something.

 

I can't understand why somebody would join something like that and then not vote, and I'd be worrying about them not rejoining come next year

From the EUFC site...

 

In terms of the two chosen kit designs, MyFC is hopeful that members will be able to pre-order the kits they voted for in the coming weeks. The chosen home kit and away kit for 2008/09 will be revealed then.

 

Now, as I read that - it seems that MyFC members ONLY can pre-order kits, but they won't know exactly what kit they are ordering?

 

Or I am just being stoopid?

Sure, but for something as large as this to have no time between the presentation of the issue and the proposal and voting opening, and then only a week for voting, seems a little abrupt, no? Would a couple more weeks (and a lot more information on other manufacturers, Jako's response, etc) for something that won't occur 'til July or so really have prevented it from happening?

Completely agree Kenny - something about the vote being a 'done deal' was mentioned earlier???
But even with the vote on the decision of the chosen club being Fleet, there was hardly an amazing turn-out (is that the right word for an internet vote?)

While you and others may have blassberg, I think the indication on this and the other votes is that a good proportion of 10,000-15,000 people aren't interested at all, which has to be a worry so early on.

These are the same people who will be given the chance to select the team, without ever having seen them play.

I'd rather that than 100% turnout.


If you don't think you have enough information, vote no and tell them why. Once the people in charge start losing a few votes they may start listening

yep and we can be friendly and reasonable because we are fellow football fans, joining forums for instance to get your views on issues that we are asked to vote on...

...or you can insult us and we'll do what we like

If you thought that was an insult, you may want to reread that and some of the past threads about EUFC fans' concerns about MyFC.

With less than half voting on the Nike deal, those who don't care for MyFC have a little more ammo to fire back and rightly so in this case.

Patman: "Shockingly, less than half of them could be bothered to vote at all!"

 

Would you rather have everyone vote in even if they do not feel strongly either way. Go kick your dog or something, but don't take it out on the people that bailed out your football team. Show some respect. Appologize and beg for forgiveness.

Surely it's worthy of discussion though Leroix? If people choose not to vote for whatever principle, that's fine. But are you telling me that's the motivation (or lack of in this case) for all those who didn't vote? Sure, let's not panic just yet, but to ignore the very real fact that a hell of a lot of members did not vote does not augur well for future renewals and to just brush it away and claim the lack of votes are due to x number of reasons seems like sticking your head in the sand to me.
