Just been reading Boro Chat.
Seems there will not be any refunds/discounts for people who bought season tickets for 2020/21 season (I think 3 games played).
Like every business, fixed costs (rent, rates) have to be met when not trading, but are the government not helping (I have no idea).
I would have thought, the only exceptional cost would have been that as pitch maintenance if not trading (and that not vital during winter with no use).
WRT players wages. I don't have a clue what the situation is.
For most its not their main source of income and so I doubt would be eligible for furlong payments.
If the club are paying (and I have no idea if they are) then the players are getting something for doing nothing whilst ST holders are paying and getting nothing.
I am amazed anyone bought a ST. I didn't, but that was more to quality of football I was seeing and my disenfranchisement with the club as a whole.
I am sure many ST holders would right-off there payment, if offered a discount.
Reading between the lines (or even the lines between the lines) it appears that finances are still not good as highlighted by general comparisons to other clubs being made (which is often a sign).
Again, I really wish clubs would give actual specifics. I am sure if supporters knew actualities they would be more specific.
Its a difficult one as pointed out, those who help by buying ST have been treated worse than those who did not. Whilst no-longer a ST buyer I strongly believe ST holders deserve reward.
The question of sponsors was also raised.... should they get a refund/discount?
One other point that riles me "The club would not be here if not for JG".
That may be true, but could not the same be said about Hawkins or Smurthwait?
