Ps just for additional clarity on this one do you not also find it sad that in 2021 that straight white middle aged white men would vote that they don't find it very important that our club has a womens team?

 

 

 

I voted that a women's football team is not important.

 

Can I just clarify that my opinion is "at the moment".

 

I think women's football is important but as a club we need to be able to run one team properly before we start thinking about running another team. (male or female)

Of course mate and I understand that some might have answered based on 'at the moment'

 

That wasn't the question though really it was meant 'in general' not 'at the moment' or 'with everything that's happened recently' or 'given the current chairman' or any other caveat

 

lol

This argument never holds water

 

It's like saying a chip shop can't sell chips if it's pies aren't very good and that they need to be able to cook pies properly before it can sell chips

If you are a car manufacturer and you make only one model that soon breaks down and falls apart soon after someone has purchased it, you want to fix those problems first before releasing a new model, that will probably have the same problems?

 

Don't you?

I’ve noticed that often when you’re having a ‘mare and losing an argument you resort to the nonsensical analogy as a distraction. Even in discussions where I’ve agreed with your basic point, you’ve gone off on irrelevant tangents. The other “tactics” that you resort to are to tell your opposites that they’re “wrong”, or have been “conditioned/brainwashed”. It’s great to follow.
 

If you feel the need to use a chip shop analogy though, surely the chips are the men’s team and the pies are the women’s. Don’t waste a lot of time and effort on the pies until you’ve got the chips sorted.

I've ignored the first part of your reply as it's just a personal dig and childish

I'll take you up on the second part though


A chip shop that opens and up and sells chips but doesn't want to sell pies yet until the chips are sorted - guess what? It doesn't develop, grow, expand, pull in more people (pie lovers) and doesn't make as much money

 

So yeah - my analogy is bang on the money


We've got people saying 'yeah we shouldn't sell pies until the chips are sorted' when in fact the chippy owner could just bang a pie in an oven and cook it and sell it WHILST sorting the chips out

 

What you're suggesting is that we can't do anything else until the mens team is 'sorted'  (whatever that means) 

So we can't improve the catering as that would be a distraction


We shouldn't be selling new kits - that's just a distraction


Can't have events on at the club like 'an evening with Darren Moore' because we've not sorted the mens team out yet


We can't be improving the megastore - too much of a distraction from improving the mens team

We can't be having an academy and developing youngsters as the mens team needs 'sorting' first

 

Or...

Or...


Dare I suggest this..


Is it just a womens team that you don't want to happen?

You’re adding totally new elements to the argument that are part of the match day experience for some. I’ll ignore those. Nevertheless, that doesn’t take away that your analogy is not comparable to the issue being discussed.

 

You're equating spending, time and money, on the academy to a women’s team. When did someone from a women’s team progress to the men’s first team? Anywhere? They are different and have different levels of priority (or, if you like, importance).

 

If resources are unlimited, fine, buy an oven for some pies, but whilst the coffers are empty and your fryer’s broken focus on getting the fryer repaired.

Are you suggesting the fact we have one is the reason we got relegated?


No.

 

Are you suggesting that (for the majority of fans, of any team) success for the women’s team is as important as success for the men’s team?

You are going all over the place, defending things that just have not been suggested. Your chip shop is not a good analogy, or the way you have used it isn't.

 

If you run a chip shop and you sell fish and pies and stuff but you chips are crap.

 

The fish and pies can be merchandise and other stuff you think we want to get rid of but have not said anything about.

 

If you now want to start selling sweet potato fries, you really want to sort your basic chips out first or your spf may come out all greasy and undercooked too.

The chips aren't crap though - they're still selling just fine
In fact there's been more customers for chips over the last 5 years despite the chippy putting the prices up than there were in the previous years

If the chips were that bad then the customers wouldn't keep coming back

But they do - in great numbers

So not sure why you're saying the chippy can't also chuck a pie or two in the oven

 

 

(the chippy owner has massively overspent on potatoes though - I grant you that)

 

lol

As evidenced by 46% of the respondents to Q20.

Dont think anyone said anything of the sort.

 

I did suggest that Chansiri getting involved with them probably wouldn't do them any favours though.

But at the end of the day I don't buy pies from the chip shop.  They just aren't Very Important to me personally.  

 

By all means, have pies.  As you point out, we DO in fact have pies.  There's no need to get shirty and judgemental when other people just aren't that bothered about the pies one way or the other though.  Pies are not what they go to the chip shop for.

Why are you getting all shirty and judgemental about what people do and don't go to the chip shop for?
