    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

    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.
