Sorry, I get you. Totally agree that it is a two sided issue and I haven't got that point accross well at all. You (and others) may disagree but I firmly believe that the blame mainly lays when the protests were overshadowed by gimmicks, self advertising. There was an obvious decision by someone to focus on mid-game gimmicks and attention seeking - this backfired massively because they quickly became irritants to the rest of the paying public who were equally as fed up with the way things were going but then overlooked the actual purpose of just wanting communication with the owners.
Anyone wearing yellow and black having a good old rant was instantly associated to the protestors and the same devilish media that Glen courted and danced with, tarred every Rovers fan with the idiot brush...thus this is how we are pretty much deemed to be this day, and the valid purpose of the original arguement is well and truly lost.
In addition to this, many of the protestors like to believe that it was Kean who started the divide...it wasn't, it was simply their own inability to deal with a bit of throw away criticism. It popped up around the time when Kean used the "minority" quote and regardless of it being true, it seemed to frazzle people and rattle the figureheads of the protests. That, in my eyes, is where things unravelled because it should have been taken on the chin or even humoured, yet from that more conspiracy theory nonsense evolved and it weakened the credibility and numbers of the protestors even further.
Mid game gimmicks? I remember a plane (incidentally I was 100% against the idea) However the group did not want silencing due to the banner ban, Like always the group decided the direction we took, we just organised it .So no body made a decision to attention seek,
I have never danced with the media, I have always given my views and beliefs, something I was never comfortable with, hence why I wanted a committee, and my name removing, i.e becoming a group and not being deemed an individual
Conspiracy theories, Can you please elaborate? Because everything I have read on here has pretty much been confirmed over the last 6 months, I have not seen anything said which has not been proven so far,
