    Sad.
    Welcome to the world of football fans forums.
    We all like a laugh, joke and argument with different opinions so what’s the problem?
    No point being precious

    I'm catching you up Donsdaft! I'm feeling aaler an aaler.
    Due to the fact I'm a stranger to Pitoddrie these days £18 a month is a small price to pay in lieu of match tickets. Not sure loyalty points will ever be a factor 😠

    Because, an actual Dons page, with no financial reward for those running it, who have no connection to the club.

    Mind you, the use of 'south of England' as a term of insult and disdain isn't much of a surprise.

    Stovies in a flask.
    It wasn't a term of insult, it was pointing out the utter lack of "aberdeen-ness" about this page, where you wish me to post more frequently, and which by doing so benefits AFC by the amount of £0.00, on a topic where you're whinging about the self same fans benefiting their team by £12 per month or more.

    You don't see the perverseness of that argument?

    "Certainly"?

    Always the get-out for Nationalists. If you'd said "south of Westminster" you'd be at least following the approved house style.


    the utter lack of "aberdeen-ness" about this page
    Jebus, that's even more parochial.

    where you wish me to post more frequently
    Get ower yersel min. As Billy Connolly once said, "There are some individuals who walk into a room and it feels as if two have left".

    benefits AFC by the amount of £0.00
    It's all about money for Thatcher's bairns, isn't it?

    on a topic where you're whinging about the self same fans benefiting their team by £12 per month or more
    Wrang spy or laziness? I posted messaages 23 (welcoming arty back), 52 (pointing out that you've been absent for a long time only to return having a go at someone who doesn't agree with your own viewpoint [page 18 of the Nat manual, I think]), and 57, coincidentally enough, responding to your shallow retort. And it's spelt "whingeing", incidentally. Happy to help.

    My view on the DNA thing, which I don't believe I have heretofore expressed, is that anyone is free to spend their cash as they see fit. I've had a season ticket since 1981, contribute to some Lottery where for 13 quid a quarter I get a 10 quid cheque sent to me about once every five years, buy tickets for family members when the need arises, purchase a fair bit of merchandise and give time and cash to the Heritage Trust (although it is independent of the club). I feel that that is plenty given my shrinking earnings and concomitant (**** off Traynor, I've been using that for years) effect on lifestyle and ever-more-distant hopes of retirement, that that's enough.

    I admire the exiled fans, though, who are digging deep, but I suspect that this is just a stopper in the outflow of the transfer budget to offset what's being taken from there to fund the Skenedome.

    Yes "certainly". Decades (sh*t, am I really that old) of both preparing and using audited Financial Statements. The information included in the AFC accounts each year is pretty much the statutory minimum (as the majority of companies do) so the level of detail on expenses is very high level and aggregated.

    Now AFC could attempt to set out how the DNA money has been spent but I am really struggling to see how they could do that accurately given that the money goes to AFC and is not ring-fenced in a separate company so how they will be able to say accurately what the DNA money is spent on versus say season ticket or TV money is beyond me.

    Looks like the benefits of AberDNA are kicking in already.....‘Derek M seeks to barge to the front of the queue by offering the 38 YEAR OLD the chance to LEAD the Don’s attack.’

    You said as much on the other thread, so I'll give the same response

    Yeah, with one months contributions received (circa £75k gross) that may be all we could have expected to sign.
    AberDNA money is a long term project and will not have seen the cash flow into the club yet.
