    Pathetic thread this .

    Oh Rangers are cheating and we're no prepared to bankrupt ourselves fighting that with little chance of winning.

    News flash, not only is football not fair, but neither is life. Call in sick everyday from now on. It's the only protest capitalism will understand.
    All of the above is 'IMO'

    On a side note from all the doom and gloom, I have to say that I was absolutely amazed to find only three areas in the whole stadium that could accommodate 7 folk together when looking this morning... we're season ticket holders who always invite family to a game once a year and it's never been an issue before now. Changed days!!

    I will certainly be there, but do think that we as a support need to do something which clearly indicates that many of us do not support the stance the club is taking on this issue. I won't condemn those who say they will no longer attend (though I think they are very few in number) because everyone has a right to respond as they see fit. I sympathise with their sentiments, if not their methods. Personally, however, I think it's the wrong tactic and would prefer we find some way of expressing our displeasure with the decision which doesn't harm our own team.

    Sadly too many happy clappers, not just in our support but across Scottish football, have absolutely no guts when it comes to dealing with the Deadco's corruption.

    A near empty Easter Road on Saturday would send a message, but sadly it will never happen.
    You want everyone to boycott the game and financially hurt the club and impact the team because you don't agree with the statement? Get a grip. Time to stay off .net for a while until this calms down i think.

    Bankrupt ourselves?

    Tell me, how difficult would it be to get a fan fund raiser going from every club to raise the money for an independent enquiry?

    To say it would lead to bankruptcy is the most pathetic cop out.

    Wow

    You actually want to see a near empty ER because you don't agree with a board statement.

    It's been many a year since Hibs were on the up like this and you want a boycott because you have a strop about the Huns

    That's going to help Hibs on the field then eh 🙄

    Grow up

    Leeann has done a great job tucking them well out the way. Can't have all that noise at Easter road.

    So, have you started the Hibs fan fund raiser? If it is as easy as you think.....do it!

    I know where you might be able to borrow a cash cow from!!

    I don't know how difficult it would be. Why don't you do the groundwork and get back to us?

    I wasn't born yesterday. I know how skewed Scottish football is in favour of two clubs but that hasn't stopped me supporting my club and never will. I'll be there on sat as usual.

    I don't believe that every supporter condemns the statement...I do believe the majority do however. Just look at the polls/social media reaction, and you can see that for yourself. Delusional to think otherwise!
    Don't believe everything you read on social media mate...think the majority of fans myself included...are just bored of all this EBT chat...

    So you're in the majority and you think you're right - that's a fresh approach on this thread !

    Nah I don't think I'm right at all mate just bored of it all tbh and I think that's how the majority feel. Hertz won 2 cups thru their financially doped years and that ain't gonna change either. Rather just concentrate my efforts on supporting my team ...

    Slightly off topic but I've seen battalions of top players (too many to mention) leave Easter Road over the years and have completely disagreed with many of them being sold but ALL of these sales must have been sanctioned by whatever Board was in place at the time. I maybe knew who the Chairman was but that was about it. My disappointment never stopped me going and applying the same logic I'll be there on Saturday and every SAtturday I can physically manage.

    Off topic again but hurt a club that delivered the greatest day for 114 years?

    NEVER

  20. #109
    Do people seriously think that boycotting a game or two will make any difference at all to Petrie or the Board then not sure what planet your on ... Only way to clearly let them know is a letter to him/them personally .... Non attendance only impacts on the team !!

    Everyone grew up loving football.

    Everyone got taken, or went to Hibernian matches, in the support and fell in love with the club.

    Everyone knows the football they love is corrupt as **** as you become an adult.

    I didn't support Hibs because of who runs the club, I support them because from going up princes st seeing them bring back the cup in the 90s, to attendance late 90s I love our stadium, fans, the ***** times to ultimately the best footballing day of my life and the day after. People who are considering not going and who are actually Hibees have to ask themselves if they are there to support a board that for many years have taken the support for granted regardless or the club, by the club I've always considered it the support and the team.

    I highly doubt it's the type of thing that can be started up by one single person. It would require a lot of careful co-ordinated effort involving at least dozens of fans from each club.

    What could have helped get this off the ground and motive fans to play a part is a strongly worded statement from each club with the offer to help promote a fan fundraiser should fans wish to take this option forward. But clearly the clubs themselves don't want any action to be taken, even if it doesn't cost them a penny.

    I'll be there Saturday. However, I do think the bridges that have been built over the last 3 seasons between the board and the fans have been damaged by this statement. Reeks of RP lookin after his seat. We all know he wants the top job at the GFA.

    If it is a question of money to be raised for fans to push for an independent enquiry, I am sure celtic could fun anyone wishing to go on that long road. I for one, will be watching the game beemed live on Hibs TV as always.
    I am a fan.

    Maybe that's the plan?

    What better way to improve transparancy and sporting integrity within the SFA and scottish football than from the inside.

    Even if we supported an indepdendant enquiry there is little chance it will happen if Regan and those with things to hide within the SFA don't allow it.
    We aren't going to be able to punish Rangers any more than we already have and stripping titles from them will result in one long, expensive court case after another while the huns fight it all of which will continue to show scottish football in a poor light.

    Hibs statement talks about making things better in the future, what if that involves Petrie taking the reigns at the SFA and enacting the changes that most football fans want to see in that organisation from a position of power?

    If Hibs and Petrie stand as dissenting voices against the SFA in a futile challenge it could prevent him from getting there.

    As much as people dislike Petrie he certainly isn't a daft individual and given his "sporting integrity" stance when dealing with Rangers re-entry to the leagues in 2012 i think its entirely plausible that he see's himself as the man to sort out the SFA and want to put himself in a position to do that.

    So you know do you? Some, maybe most think the board have done very well for our club and this statement won't make any difference. Just an opinion.

    My take on the Boards statement are similar to yours. Trojan Horse scenario?
