Answer the question posed to you first!
(Of course we all know the answer, but two can play the pedantic card).
As you have pushed, yes I have contributed funds by buying 50/50 tickets on chuckash!the matchdays and not attended the match. I'm lucky, I live close to the ground. I'm hoping some funds will find it's way back to the club. I've done this in person alone, plus by proxy with another member of this forum.
I think there's a difference between doing what you think is right and placarding the point. They're two different points. One is principled and discreet, the other is just brash and inviting possibly the wrong sort of attention.
If you're honest and with integrity, you've probably pondered over this equation long and hard and with some sort of heart made your decision. That's fine either way.
I'm just showing you my way.
Ok I will answer it doesn't make any difference at all
Clubs and or the EFL don't look at why people aren't attending games just the overall figures and if the sponsorship makes more money than the drop in attendances then they are happy.no amount of argument on minority forums will make any difference to those organisations decisions.so in the vernacular you are peeing into the wind
Disagree. Not with your sponsorship issue, I think that's very relevant. I disagree with your underestimation of fan power.
If attendance was higher, the EFL would be highlighting that as a success.
If it's lower, they choose to ignore it.
By not attending, you are taking away an important revenue stream for them as they take their cut from clubs, plus you take away a string of their argument.
If literally no one went to Wembley for the final (!), the cost to host such an event would be astronomical and the embarrassment more. Of course this won't happen, but the vernacular of pi$$ing in the wind would be right, just as in reality and life sometimes by hook or by crook the wind changes direction..
