    For the last year Dan has trotted out some pretty lame excuses for his lack of football club membership.

    I believe most of them have now lapsed.

    Time to sign Dan..... :cop: :cop: :cop: :cop:

    I now have the best of all.

    I dont have the finances to sign up mate!
    I am paying twice the rent, all the bills and payingoff a new car. Need I say more?

    I still think it is a waste of money too. Unless this club can smarten itself up and restructure correctly, and also make decisions based on good business and not emotion, then I wont sign.

    Things need to change before my hard earned goes into membership

    "From every village and hamlet, every state, every city we will be able to speed up that day when all of God's children -- black men, white men, Jews, Gentiles, Catholics and Protestants -- will be able to join hands and sing in the words of the old Negro spiritual: free at last, free at last, thank God Almighty, I am free at last,"

    Though the orient has extra dry on tap which was a new experience.

    the beers go up in price after a certain time at the ori as well!

    It's doing better than what a lot of people thought it would! It helps that they hosted the after party for the recent business awards. That was a smart idea.

    However, I'm glad I don't have their amount of capitalisation in a rural economy................

    A lot of the profits come from pokies. But beer sells well. my uncle owns a pub in the UK and rakes it in and he only has a few pokies.

    Because 9/10 you're much better off in a pub than anywhere else in England.

    I dare say dan puts more into the club through entry fee's and drinks/food at the game and club than some members do.
