RE: Business sponsorship opportunities
I have no doubt BST have helped fans and would have benefited from their actions, but Bally is correct if a massive effort had been launched to get as many fans as possible to stay away the owners would have capitulated by now.
I have never doubted the BST take, TAM had said on a number of occasions that BST was not a protest group and as a trust had strict guidelines to adhere to, what Bally and some others would have liked to have seen emerge was a group hell bent on protest, keeping all and sundry out of Bloomfield road and to starve the owners of any revenue.

Back on topic...I think it is a good idea. Sadly my business is based in central London so it would be a complete waste of time.

I agree that the boycott is the single most effective weapon we have as fans.

That doesn't mean BST are useless, it doesn't have to be one or the other.

But BST have promoted the boycott. I doubt the stands would be that empty if it wasn't a BST policy. Some fans can make their own mind up but some need an organisation to follow and BST and the Knights have helped bring everyone together.

Big thumbs up from me simply because we would be weaker without them. Plus we would have never have seen Owen's performance at the Hilton or wherever it was.

That comment about those Oyston out shouts at Bloomfield road by that women/tranny on Wembley way attending the play off scab day out always makes me rage..No amount of BST influence would stop her/him from supporting the team!

I would suggest that if anyone has anything to say other than BST sponsorship opportunities, they do it in another thread.

We could have stuck with BSA and had goodness knows how many fans' forums over the last few years.

They all would have nodded their head in agreement with Owen. Owen got taken to the cleaners at the BST one.

I only wish I'd thought to use Andrew Green's put down

I agree but BST have promoted an ethical boycott although not as in your face as the tangerine knights. I personally think BST have played in right as they have to protect their future and credibility when dealing with various organisations.

I just think all this boils down to angry fans. There is only one family to blame for this!

Good points Seasider
BST might loose their credibility with certain organisations if they start getting too dictatorial
The roles of BST and TKs compliment each other
