Cup final display - Updates in OP

Recommended Posts

 

All up for Ultra culture, the home nations have been left behind by mainland Europe in this respect.

Just state which part of the ground it will be displayed and the rest can buy tickets for the sidelines. 

Will be donating :ph34r:

It is incredible that they are now using it to sort out the "true believers", who seem to care more about what it looks like on TV, from the rest of us who are just happy to be in a Cup final in the first place.

This should have been done through the likes of SMISA with a vote from the fans about whether to have this. It would have been IMO the bare minimum of decency and respect. Had I been on the losing side of that vote then I would have been more accepting of it. Instead we have so-called "superfans" holding the rest of us to ransom regarding where we sit and talking us down as somehow less supportive of the team.

You were moaning that you didn't want it happening near you or having a banner over your head so they have organised to have it in a specific section so it's easy for you or others to avoid. Now you're moaning about being told where to sit.. they are going to be a section of about 100 people in a crowd of thousands of Saints fans its hardly a huge inconvience to you. No-one at any point in this thread has insinuated that people who aren't into the banners/flags/drums or whatever are any less of proper fan so stop being an arse.

Sounds like organised fun to me. There was a chap back earlier on this thread moaning about that sort of thing. Can't remember who that was.

Where would we be without people like you trying to organise our fun eh?:D

You are right though. I am positive. Positive that I absolutely HATE organised stuff like this.

Looks like you are almost at your target funding though so it would appear I am going to be powerless to stop you people obscuring my view with an enormous painted bedsheet. Hopefully you will tell me what stand you will be in and I can buy a ticket for another one? I promise to tell you what your flag looks like. This is a win-win I think.

Why don't you look at Doake's response to the same post of mine to see how to respond to people's legitimate complaints in a better manner.

Everyone is welcome to join us. The fact that around half of the names we have are families with young children speaks volumes.

That said, we don't want to spoil the day for people who don't want their view obscured by flags, so having our own section of a couple of hundred people makes sense.

I can honestly say that once you see the display, you'll change your mind on it. It's unlike anything we've done before, on a totally different scale, thanks to the crowdfund. 

There's no right or wrong way to support St Mirren, but everyone should have the choice to support the team in their chosen way. The fact that we want to sing, wave flags... doesn't make us any better or worse than yourself. I don't understand why you're so keen to put us down. 

Mainly for one reason only. That nobody had the common decency to ask anybody else first or explain exactly what they had in mind.

That's it. All this could easily have been avoided.

As for the details, it sounds like you have taken on board the comment about spoiling the view for other people and intend to make sure that doesn't happen so that's good news and I'm happy now.

TBH if that had been made clear at the start I almost certainly wouldn't have had any issues at all.

On the other hand Doakes actually responded constructively and sorted the issue.

Thanks anyway.

It's getting the big build up, that much is for sure... 'never attempted anything on this scale', 'like nothing we've ever seen before'. I'm expecting the London Olympics opening ceremony meets Edinburgh New Year fireworks. This better be good. If this is a bedsheet or some spotty herberts waving flags, I might be forced to change channels and watch a repeat of 'Homes Under the Hammer' instead.

I'll get some cheese 'n' onion crisps in and a can of fizzy pop, in case it's good.

It's a real word and he used it in the right context.

What's your problem?

Oh that's right. There is an unwritten rule in Scotland that you can't show any sign of intelligence in public. I keep forgetting that our culture is governed by people at the bottom.

This was sorted out yesterday.

As usual you are late to the party and wearing the wrong outfit.

To answer your question though. I solved that problem years ago by not living on council estates. :P

My tuppence worth on all this, not just this thread but the many times over the years organised singing, displays and drums etc have been discussed.
Fitba is changing ....Some folks want displays and singing sections etc....I'm old school in go to the Fitba if I want to sing I sing. Some folk song no matter what ( and let's not kid ourselves alcohol plays a part when ye have a group of guys singing when we down and out). Which ever way you support the team is your way and right for you. ...none of us are any better than each other it isn't a competition. In the past folk, like myself, who aren't interested in displays and organised singing have been labelled old, moany, boring etc. Wrong! Everyone of us there yesterday or be sat there on Wednesday night are there supporting our team, we have got up off our arsed and put money in the club and sat there watching. Just cos we don't agree on how to support doesn't mean we should bloody argue about it. When the team comes out at the final I want to stand, shout come on saints and clap like feck, if folk want to hold up a flag or whatever go for it! I do NOT want my view restricted by a big flag....who would? Big flags for display and not bothering anyone smashing go for it.
NOW for the controversy. ....I don't post on here much anymore but I am sure some will remember my views on drums from years back....I HATE the feckers at Fitba. ..ibrox. ..thumping head every time just shut up and sing! I've always said if there was a drum at love street I'd give up my season ticket.....yesterday. ....I have to admit I didn't hate them....I'm not saying I loved them and a col of times I did think not again....but when the singing is as loud also the drum ain't that bad. I deliberately stood to side of goal in middle of terracing cos I knew the boys would go up the back centre....I couldn't have been too close it would have done my nut in. If they sat a couple of rows in front of me at love street (aye I know it's not love street ) I'd probably end up stealing their wee drumsticks! I have therefore come to the conclusion that I aye just a bigot cos I didn't like the ibrox drum!
We are all there to support the saints....appreciate that we all different personalities, different way of doing things and all want the same thing. ..For saints to win so accept that and do your thing your way and just respect out individual choices. But I swear if ye ever sit next to me with the drum....well aye I might not listen to my own advice

You could literally be talking about every single poster on this thread.

Any specific one?
