Ex Players

Recommended Posts



Non-story. Another chance for the usual suspects to moan. The ex-players are more than welcome at Vale' date=' but they have to pay. I've been a fan for 20+ years, can I get free tickets?[/quote']

 

Just depends on who you know.;)

Exodus Geoghan, Neil Mackenzie, Luke Rodgers.... Should they along with every past player receive free tickets? I think not. They should get discounted Season Tickets perhaps, not free.

 

Exactly. Some of these ex players have played 30 games , Christ Ville viljanen nearly played that many

Why should they be treated any differently? They have a state pension so pay like other pensioners instead of maybe going to bingo at the community centre or a coach trip to Blackpool.
You cannot see it, like you never saw them play.

We're a good few of them Bill's mate's (spies). I'm sure Smurf will have his reasons for this

 

A post that shows that your command of English is equal to your knowledge and judgement.

Not every ex player gets a ticket.

They were receiving 12 tickets in total.

They were not free.

They were payment in kind for representing the club as ambassadors, hospitality duties, fund raising etc.

I am a pensioner, I pay more to watch one game than most season ticket holders pay in a season, I dont ask for or expect freebies, I dont have a bus pass. I dont travel by bus anywhere.

What a lot of people fail to realise is that there is more available income to spend in the grey brigade than in the other age groups.

How can you clam to pay more than season ticket holders pays, to watch one game?

 

It doesn't matter what you pay to get there, I pay a small fortune through the season, its what you pay on the gate to the club that counts, thats the revenue.

Counts to who? The post was in response to the pensioner bashing not club revenue. Of course it matters what you pay to get there, it may not matter to the club but it matters.

Well as one of the ignorant buch of ****ers you describe i take a great deal of pleasure in being held in such high esteem by a man of such perfect charachter! ;)

 

Still at least you are now posting on the right thread :)

 

Personally i don't believe anyone should be getting into games for free unless they are employees of the club or if its provided to them by an employee of the club as a staff benefit and even that should be monitored closely othwrwise we could end up with people of the ilk of previous members of any guise of V2001 skulking in for free.

 

I gave a detailed explanation as to why i think what i did on the news article thread on this, why shouldn't people offer alternative and reasonable view points on subjects without being abused by people such as yourself or is this not a discussion board?

 

I do however take issue with the club on their alledged failure to reply to the association in question, very poor if true.

 

Don't flatter yourself, I wasn't aiming my comments at you in particular.

A simple analogy most should be able to understand. Ex Players attended on matchdays. They got free entrance to the Lorne Street and for this worked unpaid in the executive boxes and hospitality areas. The bonus for them was that in between working unpaid, they could watch the game. During the time they entertained guests, unpaid, they also undertook money raising activities for the benefit of the club raising far in excess of what their free entry cost the club.

 

Yet despite all of the above some are still describing these people as free riding pensioners!

 

How much do you think Stoke charge ex players like Terry Conroy to undertake similar duties at Stoke?

So are you saying that because you never see them they dont do it?... they may not use the tickets every game... one may turn up and be working somewhere else... they may be doing something else...
