For St. Mirren fans, by St. Mirren fans #MarchingInTogether

 

As the masthead states, this is a forum 'for St. Mirren fans. For anyone who isn't a fan of St. Mirren, why do you post here? There are hundreds of thousands of forums on the internet, millions even, so why post here if you do not love St. Mirren FC?

No offence but this is a rather futile thread. It's completely obvious why some post their venomous sh!te on here. They don't care what a banner says. They have a vehicle to ridicule and complain with the knowledge that they will antagonise.

No offence taken. If that really is the case then those people must lead very empty, unhappy lives. However I'd be interested to read their explanations.

Must be a forum for super fans, it’s same question as “why buy a season ticket when there is no football” lunatic!

If I have to spell it out, so be it.........................specifically. 

I get the impression that there are a number of people who frequent this forum who aren't fans of St. Mirren FC, however I don't record their names in a little black book. Do you not agree with me?

I get the impression there are a small number of people on this forum who think they are superfans.

However, I don't feel the need to start a fecking pointless thread about them.

I don't give a monkeys testicle if you agree with me or not.

I certainly don't believe I'm a superfan. 

Scottish Premiership clubs' primary source of income is gate receipts:[1]

Quote

Where does Scottish football make its money?

According to the most recent financial figures from Uefa, the Scottish Premiership ranks 11th in Europe for the amount of money it made in 2018, totalling 229m euros.

The 43% that comes from gate receipts is more than the combined amount of money the league makes from TV and sponsorship deals.

The Scottish top-flight's broadcasting deal made up 10% of its revenue, with Uefa prize money accounting for 18%, and sponsorship and commercial deals a further 26%. [2]

 

Now I imagine those clubs qualifying for Europe receive the bulk of the UEFA money, in which case I would think more than 43% of St. Mirren's income comes from gate receipts. With fewer games next season, the club is likely to receive less TV money and sponsorship deals. Therefore the club will be even more reliant on gate receipts.

Without income the club will go bust. It will literally cease to exist, and yet there are members of this forum excoriating those of us who have bought season tickets and are criticising the club for even putting them on sale. My question is, are those people fans of St. Mirren FC? 

I'm an ex-smoker, and I spent £5 per day funding my habit, or £150 per month. When I was a drinker I'd easily spend £30 on a night at the pub. Giving £25 a month to St. Mirren to ensure its survival is not being a superfan, IMHO.

You still have a major horrible unhealthy addiction to St Mirren. 

Try for a new hobby.

Anyone can post on here providing they follow the forum rules. The ignore facility is there for the rest.

You need to relax a bit more and stop trying to control what happens on here. Life is too short for this nonsense.

I consider myself a superfan. I am as super as a Tennants special brew and I am a fan.  

 

I shall explain what in my reasonable opinion makes a mere mortal a superfan and what does not

Super fan's

Being a season ticket holder - Yes 

Not holding a season ticket but nonetheless you go to as many games as you can - yes

Being a season ticket holder/go to as many games as you can and a member of a travel club - yes

 

Why - because these are the people who financially support the club.  Although by the very definition of fan (as fanatic) then we really do not need the super part.  

 

Fan's

People who go now and again.   Although this group should never be underestimated.  You guys may become superfans and your presence at our hallowed ground is always appreciated.  It must also be recognised that many of us will flirt between the two.  Many a hard working man will give up the season ticket/regular Saturday attendance at the fitba in order to support a family.  You are a credit to humanity and we must hope that in time you can return to our cathedral of football in a more regular fashion.  

 

Things that do nothing to improve your status as a fan

Using BAWA to berate fans/superfans

Attending away games only for daft reasons other than geography (for example a Buddie who lives and works in Aberdeen attending only at Aberdeen away, that is entirely understandable).

Having your name inscribed on the wall of wank

Being a member of Smisa

Being a premium member of Smisa

Being a member of the 1877 club.

Shopping at Asda on deadline day.

Driving a taxi and slagging our pies.

 

 

So it's all about match attendance and financial support of the club  Some of us cannot make it through commitments, medical reasons and so on and so forth.  It is okay,  life has a habit of getting in the way.  

 

At this time we must be allowed to appreciate our season ticket holders.  These fabulous people are pouring hard earned money into the club at the very time they need it the most.  It is okay to celebrate our season ticket holders, both old and new.  Season ticket holders are wonderful people and I am proud to be amongst them.  To steal a quote from "Sunderland til I die" some of these people hardly have a pot to piss in, but that money finds its way to our great club anyway.

 

Great people season ticket holders, really great people indeed.

My fav part was when, after pointing out you were a moaning faced cnut, you put me on ignore. :lol:

Your normal post on a Saturday around 5:00pm went like this.............

St Mirren manager is a hero..................we'd won

St Mirren manager is an idiot................we'd lost

And repeat for the whole season.

For me it's the free access to the Sexy Nurses Pornography Forum which is provided to all those who have more than 10,000 "likes".

Today's stunner, Sadie, is looking fabulous as usual.

The club would easily survive if they cut their cloth to suit, stop paying stupid wages to below average players and went part-time as all clubs in Scotland should. As Shull says only two teams will ever win league from here to eternity so what’s point in others trying to keep up!
