    Some might think that penance will last 60 years...not enough either!

    I am sure a large rake off went to partners(joint owners?)...Do we think other partners merely allow their accomplices to keep all of this...or would there be some kind of split..?

    I guess that is my point. Bad advice implies something too external. I find myself wondering if much of the so called outgoings/expenses etc ( percentage of transfer fees, signing on fees, salary from lengthy contracts, pay offs )are in fact payments to the "ownership" and not loss, as conveniently depicted. I may have watched too many westerns, but I have a picture of the robbers meeting up in the hills and divvying up the proceeds!

    But agents were/are partners in running the club. Also a large slice of player wages, signing on fees-and indeed managerial pay offs-went to said partners. To think I once wondered why there were so many strange signings

    Connor Mahoney's contract

    I make no clams about the benefits of being a barely used fringe player etc. I am just uneasy about the rush to judge him, as a person...

    Edited it now...thanks!

    Connor Mahoney's contract

    In fairness, how does anyone know "he believed his own hype"? This time last year BRFC was a shambles. Indeed it had been for 7 years ..and then he got the chance to work with Eddie Howe. Throw in a decent wage etc..Was his decision really that unreasonable?

    Well said....And instead of a consultant, enter a clown....(followed by another and another..)

    Cicero lol! You're playing the man, mate. Stuart is the one with a Latin phrase for that. You are the one who referred to all the posters who said they love us being a lower-mid Championship club and have no desire to be anything else. My whole point was around what is now "acceptable". Then you used the very word, yourself, Tiro.

    Yes, I am more hopeful about Waggott than any of their previous appointees to the equivalent role. Not just a back handed compliment either, although they were all hopeless or something more sinister. Like others, following our promotion I observed a few articles/phone- ins, wondering whether fans could now forgive Venky's etc. As a fan, of course I loved last season...but if it merely relieves the pressure on Venky's et al, as they revert to keeping the club, merely ticking over in the lower reaches of the 2nd tier..what then for our club? It all comes down to the concern that Rovers is not in safe hands.... and I would not want anything to distract us from that realisation.. As for redemption...not in this world anyway!

    No-one said you were dumbing us down. I never bought into the "blame the fans" line! In the context of loyal, one club supporters, my point is around functionality. The 2nd relegation and immediate promotion -to the very level, which evoked such outrage in 2012- has has had the impact of managing our expectations down. It has bought Venky's and their partners time...
