How have fans been milked dry? Each one of us has a choice to either donate or ask for a refund it’s simple really no one has been forced to donate. If you haven’t received an email then I doubt you had a season ticket or one of the 10 game packages because the people who work in the office have been nothing but helpful. I bet you haven’t contacted the club to ask about your missing email, if it bothers you so much give them a ring or are you expecting someone from the VSC to do it even though you slag them off.
I can assure you I had a season ticket.

As far as milking the fans dry .
I'll ask the question again, how many other industries are patrons asked, nay, expected to donate large sums of money to an organisation they frequent?

I'm not just talking about rovers fans here, I'm talking about football fans in general .

You can give me a round figure if you wish. But I know what the answer is .

If you see DRFC as an “organisation you frequent” you’re not a football fan.

“ Didn't see any Debenhams fans donating £300 to keep them going.”

There have been a lot of classic lines written on this forum. This one is up there with the best. I don’t know if you are a man, woman, child, or how old you are, I do know you’re no football fan though.
How you work that one out then ?
Again, how have you worked that out ?

It's been the plan for six months to let COVID rip through the population this summer. Seems like it's only in the last few days that anyone in Govt has started thinking what that might mean in practice.

And how did the government know there was going to be another wave in the summer ?

Barnsley have sold 11k and have stopped selling season tickets as they don't think they will be able to go to full capacity

They're 70 quid cheaper than ours. Partner dad paid 250 on halfway line for next season!
That's excellent .
Ours are clearly overpriced, and  feel it's not been appreciated me donating the remainder of my 19/20 season ticket money .
Won't be doing that again .

Shaun did some comparisons between Barnsley and Doncaster based on this thread and me asking if they were a lot cheaper than us

Taking on board a complete comparison between renewal discounts(5 year thanks you's)  and full season tickets

ADULTS

Barnsley adults range between £235 to £475
Doncaster adults range between £269 to £395

SENIORS

Barnsley seniors range from £145 to £270
Doncaster seniors range from £199 to £295

Barnsley seniors start at 65
Doncaster seniors start at 60 so start five years younger

YOUNG ADULTS

Barnsley young adults range from £145 to £270
Doncaster young adults range from £79 to £195

Barnsley young adults are 19 – 21
Doncaster young adults are 18 – 24 so start younger and last for longer

JUNORS

Barnsley   £70 to £115
Doncaster £35
Barnsley juniors are 12 -19
Doncaster Juniors are 12-18

CHILDREN

Barnsley £10 to £35
Doncaster £35
Barnsley children are U12
Doncaster children are U12

GENERAL

Doncaster also offered anyone who renewed who bought a 5 year commitment on a cheaper season ticket.  Barnsley only offered one year

Barnsley also charge interest on their spread payments, going up to 9.70% for 10 months. 
Doncaster only charge a flat admin fee and no interest.



But what about his 3 or 4 games he donated without any thanks
It's not ust that I didn't get a thanks, I didn't even get a response to my email .

It's common courtesy and professionalism.

Fans have been milked dry, how many other industries are there that expect donations of hundreds from customers ?
I'm not just talking about me here .

Didn't see any Debenhams fans donating £300 to keep them going .

I'd also like to know how much more tb has put in during these times ?

For the sake of fans who are now not just emotionally invested, but financially too .

Could the donations be converted into shares and given to the vsc ?
Serious question .

Your donated 3 or 4 games never amounted to anywhere near £300
Like I clearly said, I'm not just talking about myself

I'm not sure the matchday revenue is that critical in Championship even for Barnsley, hence they can offer lower prices.

For example, in the last proper season 19/20, Barnsley received £5.3m in Solidarity Payments from the EPL while we received £1.3m. There is also a basic award for being in the Championship which is I think about another £2.5m. In League One it is about 250k. These figures are not rock solid but you get the picture in general. It’s not a Premier League windfall but get into the Championship and your non-match day income rockets.

Yes wages and players are more expensive, but the matchday income for Barnsley would I suspect be a much smaller proportion of their income overall than for us. That we have such competitive pricing amidst that is a good deal.

I didn't go into the concourse at HT but as I came into the stadium, at 7ish and was leaving there wasn't really anyone wearing masks. There was plenty of free seats for you to socially distance during the game though. I'd probably suggest leaving 5 mins before FT to avoid big crowds if you're feeling apprehensive too.

You could always stay behind at full time, clap the players off and still avoid the crush at the end if you wanted to


COYR

I actually did. Felt a bit anxious once outside the stadium though.

I believe last night Cam John came on and he played well he looked as good as Williams and he has pace just the same. Also Richie said he was excellent on Radio Sheffield interview. He’s done well since he was disregarded by Butler and showed he still good enough for our team if required.
