Do you intend to stop supporting the Club when there is supporter involvement?

I don't do drugs and I don't drink.

Should be no need for fans  or any director/owner to pay for transfers  or running costs. The money should be generated by the club itself.  Pay the bills first. If there is a surplus then think about transfers.. It's called living by your means. Most people do it daily all their lives. But it seems common sense goes out the window,  as soon as a football club is involved.  Do you not agree Loopy/ Stephen..  :countingmoney:

Grissles you being silly now if fans want seats on boards then they should stump up money when transfers are happened and help foot the bill

Not being silly at all loops,when you have a board of directors those directors normally have a paid position within the club,like finance director,or HR director etc? All financial transactions are funded by the football club or the owner,fans are sometimes co-opted onto the board to give their ideas which the board can react to. :dontknow:
Perhaps a lunatic was simply a minority of one.

How does anyone get a seat on ‘The Board’ at a club like Kings Lynn when you have one man who thinks he can run it all himself?    What a ridiculous argument.   Plus IF there was one available who in their right mind would buy a position at a Club that is in debt to the tune that we will see when the next lot of figures are available.
What if the Hokey Cokey really is what it’s all about ?

Mallard is right. A board is there to represent the shareholders. There’s only one shareholder and it seems

White Knight or cowboy, you can never really sure about strangers on horses riding into town?  Hopefully the Crouch Report will get through parliament which will then make owning a football club under the benefactor model less attractive, might be a bit of pain in the short term for existing owners but well worth it for the longer term benefits

Mallard is right.  Ridiculous argument.  Board members represent the shareholders, in this case I'm assuming SC is the only shareholder and he obviously thinks he can represent himself.  The biggest issue here Mallard mentioned above is given club are in debt, a director steps onto the board, he/she takes on shared personal liability for that debt if it isn't paid.  Who on earth would do that?

Having an advisory board who can interact with SC would make some sense.  Having fan representation on that would be more likely; problem is not all fans agree, just look at this forum.  So which fan/fans would get that opportunity?  And then whichever fan/fans join the advisory board they would get slated on this forum by the fans which aren't happy with the agenda they are pushing.
