Well then...... I got the impression Wayne Wild had beef with the club (he's not alone, to be fair), is he still on the board there? Not that it really matters like.

It seems to be a fairly meaningless agreement in the scheme of things.

Meaningless? Given the quotes it's an amazing turnabout. Chaddyesque.

Would love to know what has changed with the club's ownership for such a volte-face?

Interesting in view of the 3 resignations of senior people at the Rovers Trust. Conflict of interest or a different way of getting the same thing desired...?

Very much doubt we'll be hearing anymore anti Venyks diatribe from Wayne...his step down from the trust now all falls into place.

This sounds like good news if a local business is again prepared to get involved in new sponsorship deals with the club.

Not sure about this, people have shown a distrust of Davies online and it's not long since Wayne sat at a table vowing to fly to India in a bid to get the owners out.

Wild by name, Wild by nature. Hypocrisy imo, but suppose it's good for his business.

Wayne has been responding on here and denied this but it's been mentioned  in the past that a seat on the board as a fan representative was something he wanted and this doesn't do anything to dispel that!

Just wonder, why the sudden about-turn? The reason they stopped is still here.

I find this confusing...Why associate yourself with people who you actively and openly criticised.

Feathering his own nest, not unexpected really, as anyone who has dealt with WEC will no doubt tell you.

Makes me sick to the stomach to be honest.

He's not the only one who used the plight of the club to gain recognition. He won't be the last to benefit from this either.

Not really any such thing as bad sponsorship in my opinion. This club's commercial department has been on its knees for years. People blame ticket sales for our revenues being so low in comparison to rivals yet our commercial income and activities are an embarrassment.

Just look at Fulham on Tuesday night. Advertising boards for Disneyland Florida and Visit Florida, granted their Florida based owner will be responsible but isn't it amazing how other Championship clubs can attract decent lucrative sponsors whilst people like Cheston claim there's no market and no interest in sponsorship for mediocre Championship clubs.

Seems a bit bizarre really. I've never heard of a 'social media partner' at any club and on a deal until the end of the season suggests it has been done at a knock down rate to see how it goes.

Suppose its a good idea for WEC given the number of people who must go on Rovers' website and twitter accounts every day.

Some serious over reaction and to the announcement, but, it is to be expected, fans haver seriously divided views and opinions.  

Local man getting involved can only be a good thing.

Good for the club to be linked with a local business.

Some fans seem to find the negative slant on everything to do with the club.

I was thinking of sponsoring the BBE prayer room.

I hope there is no criticism from you whining lot.

"Mike's Prayer Room - £5 a prayer, £10 an absolution".

What's the discount on a bulk order of absolutions?

10% for 10+

Mercerman has to pay an extra 10% for wasting so much of our time ;)

You strike me as the sort of person that someone could take a massive deuce on your carpet and you'd say... "Cheers"

 

If Wayne gets a seat on the board then he'll be viewed as Venkys to many fans... Plain and simple.

This! I've been banging on about this for a while, shame some folk don't have the capacity to understand.

Far from it. Most local sponsors including WEC wouldn't touch the club with a keany stick whilst Venkys are here.

a traitor and now resigned/ canned from the trust, hopefully it's the last we hear of Wayne and cWEC

The begrudgery is strong on this thread. 

Do ye not understand that the club needs these corporate links? It is how business works. 

Were some of you not complaining in another thread that the club isn't doing enough to maintain corporate ties in the community?
