The 3 Monthly Spend

Recommended Posts

You’re right up there as an embarrassment I’d say. I’ve never shamefully begged anyone to stop messaging me then stalked them right after. 
Its like having a crazy ex girlfriend this. 
As I said... Even more meaningless deflection.

You can't accurately answer his question. Can you?

Yes or no people on here & social media have posted their reasons for leaving SMISA? 

Thats the answer whether you like it or not. No deflection, just showing where you’re again wrong. It’s became so easy

You did say a "fair few"

Your answer did not answer my question. Turns out, you don't know how many this "fair few" is.

No worries. I am sure SMISA will be able to give figures at next years AGM unless folk don't give them a reason.

So you cannot accurately answer his question. I understand.
Must hurt when you cannot sufficiently deflect for the question to go away!

Membership numbers peaked at 1,374 shortly after BTB officially started. It has dropped by a little over 100 by the latest update which was a good year ago now (from memory, might be a more recent one I’ve missed) 

that will include new members joining so the drop off is likely a bit more. A ‘fair few’ of that number have publicly voiced why they have left BTB & generally (in here & social media) it’s been because they wanted more community benefit options. These are options continually voted down in favour of club financially benefits at almost every vote.   

If I knew the specific number I would have said the specific number instead of a ‘fair few’ thought that was pretty clear.

As accurately as a ‘fair few’ suggests I could answer it. If I had said I know an exact number then never gave it, would be different. Reminds me of the last time you spent weeks on defining the word ‘few’ :lol:

I know the desperation from you to try & catch me deflecting or lying but again, it’s not going to be today. Maybe tomorrow :rolleyes:

But you have history.

A few can mean a few hundred and we are not allowed to question that!

Because you type things, it doesn’t make them true. You also quoting a question you couldn’t answer shows I’m not the one doing the lying...

Okay tell you what I'll do here. It's clear your desperation for the last word & given your "Go away and please ignore me! Seriously! Put me on ignore. Don't respond to me. Don't mention me!" wish... I will not respond to you on the sin bin thread, I won't respond to you in whatever you have to put as the last word on here (providing you don't ask me a question). 

Then we can go our own separate ways. You can show to everyone you weren't lying & you are serious about wanting ignored. We'll both continue to be active users on BAWA but with absolutely no requirement to respond/ mention each other. That includes your wee trick of responding to other people referencing me... 

Or you can save everyone the trouble, admit that post was a lie & that you're really Baz daft for the chat? 😅

Is that all Smisa do ,dream up things for the 3 month spend, not represent their members in the family stand fiasco or  the non existent  new finance schemes promised by GLS at the time of the agreement  with Smisa ?And why the Panda club numbers have dropped from around 60 to the low 20s,these are are future supporters.

They are just a bank for GLS ,cheek to call themselves Independent.

- 3 month spend is a members vote, popular options are always the club benefit ones, the minority of voting members might not like that but as long as it the popular option is should remain 

- how do you know a majority of their members are against the family stand arrangement? 

- we’ve had three years of profit in a row under GLS, financially he must be doing something right 

- Not seen any stats on the panda club numbers, where are they from? 

- GLS doesn’t make a penny from SMISA & has no authority on voting options, the club can suggest only.

Rocket Boy..!

Did you know in North Korea they hold 'democratic' elections. But if you want to vote against the regime you must do publicly? Do you think that allows for an accurate reflection of voters view?

October 2019 Voting options up. Summary of two options below:

Option 1

Continuation of pre-match/ halftime entertainment. The stuff they currently do for the kids like bung a baw and all that.  £1,500

Option 2

Christmas dinner charity meals that they proposed last Christmas in partnership with Salvation Army. £1,200

Straight yes/ no votes. If either is a no vote, that cash will be kept for future options. 

Two yes's from me. Great community benefit in both with the continuation of the first likely to have a positive impact on our young fans attending games.

Here's a more detailed account of what the money may or may not be spent on.

Option 1 is for a continuation of the pre-match family entertainment that takes place outside the stadium on a matchday.

This has proved to be a very popular venture run by Colin Bright, AKA Paisley Panda, and jointly backed by SMISA, the club’s Supporters Liaison Officers (SLOs) and the Fans Council.

The entertainment has grown year on year since it first started with Bung a Baw back in 2016. Last season they took things to a new level providing entertainment at all Saturday home games with activities including inflatables, live music, face painting, balloon artist, flag displays and much more.

The aim from the outset has been to encourage the kids of today to attend matches regularly and in turn become the paying adult fan of tomorrow. Feedback has been incredibly positive both from home and away fans.

The organisers want to continue to grow and add to the activities they provide throughout the season but need funding to do so. The total cost for this request is £1500.

Option 2 involves the St Mirren Charitable Foundation and their Festive Friends Christmas dinner.

On Christmas Day last year the Foundation, in conjunction with the SPFL Trust and the Salvation Army, opened the stadium to provide a meal, company and entertainment for a number of local elderly people.

Members from SMISA and the St Mirren women’s football team also pitched in to help make it a day to remember for all involved.

Gayle Brannigan from the Foundation wants to host Festive Friends again this year and has asked if SMISA members could contribute £1200 towards the costs involved.

Option 1 should read...

"The aim from the outset has been to encourage the kids of today to attend matches (FAIRLY) regularly (Obviously they are not welcome at matches against the old firm)!"

I support the initiative.

Would be nice if the club cared as much about the paying support of tomorrow!

My money was on LPM bringing this back up but you were a close second. Completely irrelevant & no need to mention in the context of a SMISA vote.

Breaking your promise I see.
Needy?
Missing me?
Just finding it impossible to keep your word?

I see you are still regurgitating the two stands shite yet I resisted mentioning it... So why your need to reply here...

I was most certainly NOT talking to you.

NO NEED TO REPLY!

You forgot one small fact in your reply BiEK,

They are welcome to attend and you know that.

I have emailed SMISA to ask, however I was wondering if anyone here knows why the amount available this quarter is £2700 instead of the usual £3000 (last quarter was also less at £2800 - but was topped up by money not used previously).  At the risk of reopening an old discussion I immediately thought of the £300 monthly subscription to Very Connect and hoped that this wasn't the reason for the reduction, however short of 150 members cancelling I couldn't think of any other reason.

Doesn't mean I can't be mischievous!


Point is... SMISA are making youth a PRIORITY and rightly so.

The club does... at times... But is inconsistent. Could do better.
