I didn't go yesterday because I was babysitting but I can sympathise with those who've chosen to stay away because they can't stand what Freedman's doing and refuse to give their money to a club that doesn't seem to care about anything the fans have to say and are only interested in emptying our wallets.
The mantra "proper fans go to the game no matter what" no longer holds water, especially when football is such an expensive form of entertainment compared to many other things you could do for two or three hours on a Saturday afternoon.
If the club wants to put bottoms on seats it has to earn our money and give us value for it. On Saturday it seems we'd have got it but all too often over the last few years that simply hasn't been true. I personally HAVE renewed my season ticket but I can't really blame anyone who decided not to given how much dross was served up last term.
I think fans should remember that first and foremost they are customers and like customers of any business they have the right to choose whether or not to buy the product on offer. If it's not good enough then they keep their money in their own wallet and the company has to improve or forego the chance to get the cash they're after.
