Not quite sure what sic means, however to have a locked topic that some people can respond to while most cannot must be the ultimate in Silvertaildom. The club(s) clearly have issues going forward, and I was quite surprised Dan that you decided to pull the pin here, I thought you were much less into censorship than that. The problems for the club of course surround the fact that there are many 1000's of people who like the Sea Eagles but currently only a smaller number of millionaires prepared to pitch in with large $. Therefore the quandary between control being kept to the millionaire owners v. the need for a large and committed proletarian mass of concerned supporters. Screaming Eagles minus any voting rights was always highly sus imo. The FC has a certain reputation (old boys club), nonetheless I joined a couple of years ago precisely because they have voting rights. As Matabele succinctly expressed in the locked topic - FC and Screaming Eagles membership need to be combined. Is this something we are not allowed to discuss - even in (our) off-season? And how come you said you would delete the posts but you didn't?
