Season ticket refund OFFICIAL OFFER

Recommended Posts

The offer from Mr Chansiri is that the season ticket refund offer will be honoured on a pro rata value for the remaining games. 

 

The conditions are a ban from all future season ticket and membership applications and forfeit of accrued loyalty points

 

Well played Mr Chansiri.  Harsh but fair offer. I personally won't be pursuing the refund even though I enquired. I don't think many others will either 

 

The offer was stupid in the first place and now everyone should forget about it and move on

Thought it was to good to be true but saying that I wasn't asking for a refund even before I knew about  the conditions

Going off some of the reactions on here it would appear that some would love nothing more than for it to go a "bit Dave".

 

Blow the cobwebs off the black balloons etc.

 

Yes, I think a minority perhaps need to be careful what they wish for but there is a subtle feeling of passive aggressiveness coming out from the club at times which affects everyone now. Hopefully  it isn’t the tip of the ice berg.

There's some major flouncing going on.

 

Chansiri really can't win can he?

 

He gets a load of abuse after our two best seasons in nearly twenty years.

 

He's obviously personally hurt by this abuse after dedicating himself to the SWFC project and injecting millions into it, so - rightly or wrongly - offers a conditional refund to those that want out.

 

People say the terms of the refund are disgusting because he's not just handing them back their £500-£600, and is taking away their 'loyalty' rights.. What do you expect?

 

I applaud Chansiri. Yes, maybe he shouldn't have offered the refund, but people have still had to physically apply for it...Probably under the mind-set of 'ooh I'll get my £500 back and then put it towards next year's season ticket'.

There is one word I would use to describe this whole issue - divisive.

 

 

Not what we need 3 days before a derby game and not what we needed fans to be taking into that meeting with DC on Thursday.

I hope that Thursdays meeting is one to bring fans together again

This.

 

You can see it coming. A chairman who takes criticism far too personally and a small minority (for whatever reason) whipping up the furore (he's the next Dave Allen etc) every time a new announcement comes out.

 

It's quite clear that the club is over receptive to online feedback, hence why we get daft offers like this.

 

It's a flipping powder keg.

My point of view is that every time the club announces anything atm (whether it's good, bad or somewhere in between) there are a relatively small group who seem collectively lose their sh*t and try and whip up a mass frenzy.

 

There appears to be just a level of distrust towards whoever owns the club. Equating Dave Allen to Chansiri is a good example of this.

 

 

I will guarantee this much, the only difference atm is that DA got the amount of stick because he didn't chuck tens of millions at it,  if this happened during his era the fans would have gone bat poo mental, absolute bat poo mental.

 

We as a club are selling our souls and letting a owner do whatever he wants to the club and its fans because he spent some money!!!  

 

The fans have every right to be very very concerned with things like this, even more so when the ridiculous decision isn't isolated. We are doing all of the simple things wrong.

 

I didn't agree with us keeping Carlos for so long but rather than just part and get the feel good factor in the owner sent out a club statement that heart on sleeve or not divided fans. Still when time settled and we got a new manager in this week we could have got some feel good back and kept things positive then bang!!!!!!! another huge PR blunder.

 

Its like we can't make decisions and just get on with it as a club, we have to say either get on board or fizz you!!! 

 

it doesn't need to be that way, he could go about his business quietly appoint a new man, not give refund offers, not send out statements about fans etc.

 

The problems are coming from within, and if the things of late coupled with the new CEO appointment aren't worrying you about our direction then i think you might be in for a few shocks.

Should never have been offered. 

 

Course it should have, or he would have been vilified for being ignorant to a % of the fanbase, would he not?

 

He has essentially stood up in commercial brinksmanship and won in the main, I think it was a canny strategic move - quite possibly, assisting the removal of the loudest negative voices in the stands... how can that be anything but a win?

I'm 44 now and have been watching Wednesday since 1977 and am probably a veteran of 500 Wednesday matches.

 

Some years I've had season tickets others not. I'm in the middle of a 3 year one now.

 

Plenty of reason to walk away over the years and become selective with my viewing (Bert McGee, Larry May, Mr Tom, David Pleat, Ola Tidman, I could go on) and I have from time to time and will again in the future no doubt.

 

If you want to walk now I don't blame you - the football has been appalling and some of the players appear spineless.

 

However please don't pin any of this on Chansiri.

 

He's made plenty of mistakes and I hope he will learn from them, but he has done so (mainly) with his own money on a level never seen before in our 150 year history.

 

If he's still making those same mistakes in 18 months time then he will have to do it without my money, but I hope it doesn't come to that.

 

UTO

You see you're pretty much predicting that the end is nigh before anything has happened (though yes, there are some warning signs).

 

Self fulfilling prophecy springs to mind.

 

Oh and I made my views on the new CEO perfectly clear a week back. Ta.

I went to a restaurant and got shocking food

They took it off the bill and apologised

they didnt' ban me from their restaurant for life

I returned to the restaurant many times since and recommended it to others

 

I went to a restaurant and got lovely food. My mate said his was shocking.

 

They took the cost of his off the bill, but no apology.

 

They told us, all of us, to f... off and don't come back again.

 

I haven't.

So what do we do as very very concerned fans minority or not? Sit back and let us implode because no one stands up and says what is right?

 

Sorry but i support Wednesday because its my club, not because a new chairman dictates what we can do whilst he chucks money around making poor decision after poor decision. 

 

I want accountability for what happens with Sheff Wed! i want us to have a club in 50 years when my grandkids are going to watch them.

 

Right now the warning signs are getting bigger and bigger and i won't be sat here saying lets see how it goes and watching us implode without trying to be vocal to stop it.

It's not really rocket science is it...

 

DC offers refund, only the most disgruntled will likely take him up on the offer = the most disgruntled, tend to be customers who shout the loudest over a course of time, about many various negatives as they see it and this ripples through a customer base, if left unchecked.

 

He's essentially countered the above and I tip my hat to him for this, although not all will see it the above way - I'm more than happy to see it that way.
