    David reacted to DarkFruitsRam7 in The protest   
    It was encouraging to see Mel at the game on Saturday. It suggests he's not bedridden at least.
    Doesn't mean he should pander to these people though.

    I don’t agree with the protest, but I don’t agree with attacking other fans either.
    It’s cheap and easy just to throw an insult out, dcfcfans being a discussion forum it would be more constructive to make them aware of why you don’t support this idea of a protest.

    Your last point is a very important one, which I think some have either forgotten or simply don’t care about.
    Not one of us know his current condition whilst demanding he show his face and talk to the fans. 
    Would also just like to add that I think it’s a dangerous game for the club to publicly come out to address rumours.
    It’s something I have never agreed with be it transfers, managers, drones and to gather a protest off the back of it, I can’t get my head around, especially when the tweet was deleted.
    I totally understand the members of that group maybe angry, frustrated, upset with the current situation the club finds itself it, I don’t think any fan, player, staff member or club official would be happy either, but I fail to see what this achieves.
    I will also say that I don’t believe they were trying to speak on behalf of other supporters, was most likely just poorly written. 
    For any kind of statement like this, I feel like it needs a list of names that sign off on it to add any weight, as you say, are Club 84 speaking on behalf of 20,000 or 20 fans, this is really important, especially if you are looking for the club to take notice.

    David got a reaction from Old Sawley Popside in SHEFF WEDS (h) Meet and greet the players who’ve let us down so badly this season.   
    Just to add another voice that is completely against a protest.
    At this stage of the season, with what is on the line, we don’t need to add further negativity, but do what we can from a far to not attack, but support the club and encourage the players the best we can.
    How? Well that’s extremely difficult given Police and club advice is to stay away if you are there to berate or encourage the team.
    We could not whip ourselves into a frenzy over every rumour and deleted tweet, squash any talk of protests, not mention the club, players or potential new owner with angry tweets.
    I’m not suggesting fake “happy clapping”, simply words of encouragement. 
    Championship survival should be our key priority right now.

    Okay, you want constructive criticism. I object to anyone demanding information on my behalf without asking me first. They say they represent the fans. How many fans? 20,000? 2,000? 200? 20? 
    The group was set up around three years ago to become a vocal stronghold of support (that was apparently going to carry on singing even when we were losing)  in the South Stand. That never happened but have they told people who 'signed up (which I think just entailed following them on Twitter) about the change of direction? It's a big jump from vocal support to organised protest.
    Lastly, I think that bringing the fact that some of them working through the pandemic or being affected by it as a justification for demanding answers immediately is frankly ridiculous. Everyone has been affected by the pandemic, including our owner, as we all know. 
    The whole thing just reminds me of Violet Elizabeth Bott!

    Ok, Google routinely run experiments, that I wasn’t aware of which the latest one basically put full screen adverts up. 
    I cancelled the experiment, you shouldn’t see anymore now.
    If you do see anything like that again, shout up. We will never knowingly have pop ups, full screen or redirect ads on the forum.

    Not me, 1884 Group stopped a couple of years back now.
    Club84 is different people entirely.
    And yes, I'm one of the people behind Bustler Market, although Bustier Market is perhaps a great idea for us to move into!

    Sensible to wait for the takeover to go through isn’t it? 
    Plus the government have yet to confirm if stadiums can reopen next season. 
    There is also the small matter of what league we could be playing in next season.
    Don’t see the timing being great to open up renewals. Wouldn’t be concerned by that at all.
