    Good job there hasn't been a f**kin stupidly timed winter break or there could have been an unnecessary pile up of pressurised fixtures before the split.

    But I didn't offer my opinion of either you or smcc. The pair of you just dived straight in. Stop fighting other people's battles for them.

    Practice what you preach, then, stop offering your opinion of others and maybe they'll stop offering theirs of you.
  11. Sorry where is the requirement that members are not allowed to democratically vote on proposals unless they have a complete predictable return detailed? Every one of those options have a high likeliness of financial return (we are a business after-all). also lets not hide from the fact, if you have a business proposal that has a completely predictable return, why aren't you a millionaire? These plans aren't easy or everyone would be doing them. Can you name a community benefit options that would have clear projected returns attached? I think that would be very challenging on our quarterly budget. You could likely correlate income from, say the children entertainment but a lot of other proposed projects would end up equally speculative. This isn't a bad thing, the £2 spend was always attached as an added benefit. To expect it to be used as a completely clear, revenue generating and equally community beneficial stream of income is very idealistic thinking to say the least. I'll take the airport/ conference space and address it separately. The other ideas, as fantastic as they sound, would likely be way above the pay grade of the £2 spend. Not saying they aren't good ideas but if they were as practical as you elude to, every club would be doing them. The tech required to do it is very new and whoever takes the first step will be taking massive risks that it doesn't pay off. Using the airport links, conference facilities, other business uses and even using the stadium for concerts is all in discussion stages. The club (likely in discussion with SMISA) are looking at opportunities to build our income streams through this. Last I heard we were looking to discuss with other clubs that had used their grounds for concerts. The thing about this is, it is not magic wand stuff, it is time consuming, it costs money and has attached risks. I think what a lot of fans fail to realise, is we're in the middle of a club purchase. The timing is not ideal at all for wide-swept innovative changes. As is so common with the modern day, everyone wants the world and they want it yesterday.

    Including the raft of private messages you sent me? Yes you are clearly flustered by it. Just go away and get on with your own life and quit obsessing over how others choose to live theirs. I am not interested in your opinion of me.

    Is what it is and we just need to get on with it. Flip side is , if we get a result(against StJ) the pressure will be well and truly on Dundee. 2 big results and momentum will be with us.

    He's just posted on another thread. Seems he's not been abducted and taken to darkest arbroath after all. Stand down the black hawk helicopter rescue squad.

    Certainly doesn't feel entirely fair. Hope we get the three points.
  18. Regarding the ground source heating and rainwater harvesting. 2 suggestions that should have been looked at. Do you know what the outlay costs and expected return or savings are? [emoji106]

    OK smart arse, IF what you say is true I look forward to you telling us how he is duty bound to avoid this legal duty.

    Might all be academic anyway as the French are threatening to veto an extension And earlier the French government spokesman, Benjamin Griveaux, said:

    Empowering the SMISA Membership to begin building for the future now.

    not one of your items has a predictable return, not one. They would be considered optional spends by any business. You couldn't identify a projected return for any of that expenditure and not one item could be highligted as a clear contributory factor in any revenue increase, past or present. We had an excellent chief exec who had some very clear ideas on how to invest in the infrastructure to generate more income of reduce expenditure. Ideas such as rainwater harvest, ground source heating and other renewable energy products could be a boon to both the club and near neighbours. Our proximity to the airport is a potential winner as a conference and business space hub. Why are none of these happenning? Could the SMISA money do it? We could look at a community combined heat and power facility to save us money and create income, rainwater harvest would slash the water bill. In some cases, you only need some seed money to access community and business funding and SMISA COULD do this if the club doesnt want to or cant.
