  1. Fair minded debate, fine. Name calling and abuse - I'm not standing for it. Anyway the event is done now so this thread is now closed.
  2. Will not be tolerated. End of.
  3. Enough with the personal abuse folks. It will not be tolerated.
  4. Exactly right John. The purpose of myself, and the trust posting about this is purely to spread the word that it is happening - if a few more people contribute as a result, that's reason enough in itself to do so. If not, no harm done. It's a no-brainer. The various fans groups should be working together on matters like this, not against each other. We're all St Mirren supporters trying to do our bit on all fronts, to help make a difference.
  5. Shared on SMiSA.net, details taken from the St Mirren Official Website
  6. Just a quick post in here as I don't think it's been mentioned - the decision to ban ALL drums from SMP was taken after the first game vs M'Well this season where they acted like utter fannies with it and smoke bombs - happened to speak to Brian Caldwell about this and some other matters back in November and he confirmed that since then the club do not allow them in the ground any more. This explained Hibs not being allowed theirs in either earlier in the season, as well as the Panda club no longer using one they had. So folks, this really was nothing new, and nor was it singling out any one club, deserving of that or not. Oh, and btw count me in the anti-drum brigade. Always thought they were cringeworthy at fitba. Saturday proved they're not needed either.
  7. Sadly as a result of the ongoing weather situation we have taken the decision along with the club to postpone tonight's Q+A evening. We simply don't want people travelling unnecessarily in these conditions. We will look to reschedule it for a date in Early 2014 and will let you all know as soon as we confirm a date for it. Very sorry to anyone that is inconvenienced by the decision, but given the circumstances I'm sure you can appreciate why it's been taken.
  8. Was it not Johnstone Carpets that did the Saints crest one for the stadium? If so could give them a buzz and see if they could sort you out with something bud.
  9. Would agree with this - having a 'gamesmaster' type figure or figures that can act to balance the teams is a decent idea. Unfortunately though, fear I'll need to take a back seat. About a week before my first game was noticing bad knee pains, and over the last fortnight they've been getting worse. Daren't risk it next week anyway - better that someone else has a shot instead. Hope it's a closer & better game lads!
  10. I'm fine thank you Susan... No seriously it was a good laugh, would defo recommend it to all good buddies. Just sorry to my team mates in the non-bibs for being, well, shite and unfit lol. Felt like I had the reactions of an oil tanker at times. Still, all in good fun and that.
  11. Massive thanks to Div for what carrying out was a much-needed revamp to the site Clicky 1 Clicky 2
  12. Thanks to everyone who came to the AGM
  13. Have to agree with anyone saying that the emphasis now has to be on finding solutions to the impending problem/problems that the club face. It's clear that we potentially face a step change akin to a cliff face with the finance model we're currently working to no longer applying. Whereas other clubs have wealthy benefactors that can turn that into a slope with ease, we sadly don't and have to look to take on that ourselves for the most part. Aside from the obvious (renewed emphasis on ST & matchday ticket sales), there has to be as said previously a bit of blue sky thinking - the more ideas on this score the better. One question worth asking (don't know if it was at the shareholder's meeting?) is are there any remaining unissued shares in the company? Speaking as someone who missed out on the previous rights issue in the '90s due to not being around then, I'd gladly take the opportunity of putting some money to the club for a very small amount (say 10-20) of shares, even if the total price I'd pay was considerably higher than the individual share price as set out by likes of the CIC's 1877 club scheme. Short of that, is it worth asking if there could be any scope for a new rights issue itself? Yes the consortium would need to take some at their own expense to retain their 52% majority stake, but it could raise decent capital and when the current problems are negotiated they'd still be able to sell up. On the issue of upping the CIC mandate assuming that cash goes to the club for a year or more...if anyone does that, great - personally I probably wouldn't be in a position to that as I'm already set to pay 2 DDs, though I would look to buy a few extra matchday tickets for home games for friends who aren't always able to go over the course of the season as & when I can. I'd also suggest having a greater number of SMFC functions & events to raise money. I think an Xmas Auction coupled to a night at the stadium would be great fun for one thing, sort of like a smaller version of the player's dinner mid-season. A few things like that, lesser dinners with guest speakers done on a monthly basis or whatever. Also, we could surely develop some more in-house merchandise lines - good quality stuff in strictly limited numbers. This will be something of a historic season after all, for obvious reasons. Lets get some ideas out there.
  14. Absolutely spot on sir. It is an extremely simple process yet all the bells & whistles of these proposals are seeking, imo, to masquerade a blatant attempt to fix it for Rangers to be out of the top flight for as little time as possible. As I've said though, none-very little of them should be impossible regardless of the Rangers situation. The SFL & SPL were supposed to be merging around this time from years back, even before the SFA got in on the act of fast-tracking the situation. Playoffs should've happened years ago, ditto the pyramid system. Steps to organise that should've been taken after the appalling saga regarding Aridrieonians, Clydebank & Airdrie Utd...let alone the modern day retelling of the Icarus story of Gretna's demise and the election of Annan. A redistribution or revenues & change to voting structure - what happens when Rangers are out of the SPL and suddenly the OF block vote isn't there to stop 11-1 majorities getting passed? The SPL buying SFL TV rights to package in? Considering the SFL is 3 divisions surely it doesn't matter which one Rangers are in if you're packaging it. League reconstruction has been talked about for years - saying you want a bigger league whether it's 14, 16, 18 or 20 is all well and good and it should happen with a merger of bodies come what may. The crux of it is that justice is served on a morally and financially bankrupt organisation that has lived it up for years and now has to pay the price. That was the case with the aforementioned Icarus mob, it's exactly the same with Rangers.
