I understand why press releases are a bit waffly and full of management speak, but so are these. What's the twitter account for the plain English society?!


If you use "should of", "would of" or "could of", you are a moron.

The guys orchestrating this mess can be summed up in one Q&A.

Q - Why would fans buy season tickets when they only know half the fixture list?

A - That's for the clubs to work out.

 

Incompetent doesn't even begin to describe these people. Oh for the days of Richard Lewis.

@RLMeltdown has collated the abusive, the confused and the factually challenged, for your reading pleasure.

Now to be fair, that's not the whole response.

 

Q.) How can you expect fans to buy season tickets if they don't even know which teams their team will be playing in opt3?

A.) The issue of Season Tickets is clearly one for each club to determine. Many clubs already offer full season tickets and half-season tickets on a club by club basis, similarly people buy season tickets for different reasons, some for discounts they offer and some for the certainty of securing their seats for every game. It is certainly the case that some clubs wouldn’t be totally clear as to their full year’s fixtures before the season under option 3. But at the time of offering season tickets they would be embarking on an exciting 25 game journey. Is that a better prospect for a club and it’s supporters than a certain fixture list with perhaps more dead-rubber games?

Just a longer way of saying "that's for the clubs to work out".

I liked this one best, it's cutting, it's rude and sums up how quite few people think feel.
