Well Done The Northbank

The perfect time for a boycott would be for fans of each club to co-ordinate this sort of action on a single match day.

Believe me, that would get the attention of club chairmen. If Saints take 200 fans tonight instead of perhaps 800 that'll be a loss to Livingston of £15k if my arithmetic holds up. There's no way that can be ignored but if that had happened across the Scottish Prem at every ground you'd see change happening pretty damn swiftly.

BUT, it's not up to me to tell people what to do.

It’s only by completing small actions like this that you get the gauge on how other clubs fans react to it

Going by social media - around 95% of fans seem to be supporting the idea. Has been shared by Rangers, Celtic, Aberdeen, Motherwell, Hibs pages, amongst others. 
 

Further down the line that could be something that gets looked at. Northbank have a pretty decent social media presence so exactly the type of place it could come from

Already said on another thread that I would have preferred them to make their stay away protest at Ibrox or Parkhead and make it clear that the reason was cost. 

Also said before that I love the colour and noise the guys bring to games. I'm not so sure about their self elected role as spokespersons for St Mirren fans re the cost of tickets. 

On a wage rate per hour v ticket cost the cost of a ticket in 1970 and now are very similar. An inconvenient fact, I know. 

I'm more concerned that we are asking people to go to too many games in a shirt period. That clearly upsets people's budgets, not forgetting the midweek timings that make it difficult for people to attend. 

Would I like the games to be cheaper to attend? If course I would. I'd like to see more use made of differential pricing, packages of games and discounted or free tickets for some at games than we do now. Merely reducing the price is unlikely to attract larger numbers. Ask Mr Boyle. Or.. Ask a couple of the forum members if they would attend games if prices were reduced. They already say no.

They have built a statue to remind everybody of their famous thick former resident.

As has been detailed on other threads, the Northbank will be considering various types of protest, and encouraging fans of all clubs to get involved

Where have they self-elected themselves as spokespersons for St Mirren? The statement was specific to the views of the group, and it's been posted on to St Mirren fan pages & forums where fans can openly express their views on the topic?

The cost of living is far higher now than in 1970, an inconvenient fact if you're as skint as I am currently due to saving for a mortgage! (which I imagine also costs a hell of a lot more than it did in 1970) :lol:

20 pound across the board is the way it should be maximum, the banner has been brought to every game this season and if the powers that be at the club would allow, it would probably be at every home game too. It’s easier to make a point at away games as there’s not about 15 different hurdles the boys need to jump to get a banner in.
The club just don’t like anyone going against them, you for one should know this as it’s all you seem to spout 
Then Boycott them?
That'll get their attention as you say.

Impossibility now. 

Free admission or a token £1 would be acceptable for young children nowadays.

Also, I can imagine 1970 being cheaper but you catch my drift.
