Totally goes against what the association is supposed to stand for, hardly independent...and something the FSF knows no other fan site does.
All other forums out there don't need to charge and still manage to keep going
Bad darts...and another reason why many of our travelling fans wont have anything to do with WHUISA.
PS..I know people say keep away from this sort of thing...BUT it is totally wrong. There is NO doubt that there is a conflict of interest. As a paid up member of WHUISA...I totally disagree that i have to find anything out on a website i wont visit.
The reason i go on the other site to argue on the WHUISA thread is to highlight they shouldn’t be using that site as its where they do all WHUISAs announcements, then again, its mainly only 1 person doing it on there & he controls the WHUISA twitter feed.
Ive argued behind the scenes to stop the political bollocks, and stop personal beliefs dictating WHUISA policy, & i won’t stop telling them.
All WHUISA should be concerned with is what the members want and how to make those that go to games lives better, taking the widespread views of the fans to the club. Members 1st
The committee should represent WHUISA members views not our own
From the outside looking in, I have to agree. I don't include John in this as I know of him personally but this is what concerned me back in March when the march stuff was going on and you could find the chair in national newspapers speaking about himself and throwing accusations around. As a paid member, never once did I see any communications asking about what actions should have been taken and felt major decisions like that should have been a members decision rather than an individual
We all have our view on Sean stepping down etc but the reality is, it was likely to always happen eventually as it was a situation with too many tangents in my opinion due to whom Sean is. Just like I don't think myself, Gonzo, Nicky & Ryan (WHFTV), Graeme Howlett (KUMB), Iain Dale (WHTID), David Blackmore (Blowing Bubbles), Ex, Dave (SDCC) etc etc, should be going for anything to do with WHUISA other than a paid member and/or promoting WHUISA to our members
The above names and more would have too many conflicts of interest (due to trying to represent their members/followers).
