If your not part of the clique, you've no chance of being able to help at the club. I've long mooted fan-ownership or the slightly more realistic prospect of a Supporters Trust with a representative on the board.
The Panthers have a Trust (albeit huge support) and as mentioned, Coventry have the Booster Club, So why not?
The same Craig Moore that Mr Muir claimed wouldn't get a game for the Kestrels. He really knows nothing about the game, an ex-player in a GM role would negate this type of ignorance.
Did he actually say that back then???
He was the GB u20's captain before signing with Dundee and has only proved just how good he was/is since then.
Tam Muir as an owner should have no input at all in any players being signed. That is a recipe for disaster every single time for any owner.
Amazingly, yes he did. Incredible that this man has so much sway with player recruitment. He has zero clue about how to build a team. It's people like him in charge who hold this club back from any modernisation. A recipe for disaster indeed.
Thanks for feedback guys, I suppose don't know how the directors will react if approached, more than likely will be stand-offish about it. Perhaps approaching Longmuir would be the preferred option, I will be posting on the various Flyers Twitter and Facebook pages to see what the interest is like there.
Just seen that Panthers have organised something similar, it could be a great idea if we could try something similar. The fans need to have a bigger say in the clubs future and this is one way we could help, anyone interested in this? Especially given the last few months off ice situation. What's the consensus out there now?
I would get involved in some kind of booster club similar to Coventry, even a £5-£10 direct debit to ensure we never run short. The trouble is, most fans feel they shell out enough on season tickets, jerseys etc so would more than likely struggle to get enough people to buy in to said scheme.
The biggest problem however, remains the managements reluctance to have fans having more say in the running of the club, even the countless occasions where help and assistance has been offered for free.
There has to be something that could be done, even to act as a conduit between fans and ownership. A fans representative has been mentioned before, but that would probably be one of the usual suspects that think the sun shines out of the clubs proverbial.
I for one would be happy to meet likeminded supporters and try and draw up something constructive, even linking up with a disenchanted sponsor and trust me, there's more than a couple.
It's about having a bigger say in the everyday running of our club, finding democratic solutions rather than trying to overthrow the current owners.
