    TheMarkChristie got a reaction from Havana Saint in PPV COSTS   
    Saints and Livi ripping the arse out of it i would say.
    I am used to paying between £8-12 per game for Ice Hockey live games and before people say its not comparable the 3 Scottish teams all get more people to games than Saints and Livi so buy rates would be about the same

    Absolutely not. If the club was struggling financially, then makes sense to do something like the foundation of hearts, but given the cash reserves and financial stability at the club, then fans paying a players wage directly like this would feel wrong to me.
    If you want to raise funds, how about charging directors admission to the games? 18 home games with hospitality would be best part of £2k each director. Then add on the free travel to away games..... these guys probably get the best part of £4-5k in freebies out of saints each year (taking I to account hospitality at away games too), excluding european trips or pre season trips.
    So, would I pay more to sign an extra player when I see little time or financial effort from those running the club? Frankly no.

    That’s Lawrence Shankland scored more goals against Hearts in one game than Chris Kane, Tony Watt, David McMillan, Michael O’Halloran and Callum Hendry combined managed in a full season.

    Yes, that’s fair. I think it’s just the way he speaks about the signings that is frustrating.
    He sounds more like he’s run out of milk and so needs to go to the shops, rather than actually having identified a player he’s excited about bringing into the squad.

    I think you might find that the main source of income will come from sponsorship - so he may have been told to focus only on creating B2B revenue ……………… But you know whatever

    It's different having one player surrounded by more experienced teammates who can talk them through the majority of the  game. Having a full team at that age getting knocked about could knock confidence more than anything (realistically it would only be one game)

    Isn't that because they play alongside old pros and learn from them rather than 11 of them being booted around the park by aging part-timers?

    How many people really like or get on with their boss or vice versa don’t think it really matters TW couldn’t trust midge to last a full match and their relationship never recovered from that. Midge has gone he will be regarded as a legend and rightly so but it’s time to move on

    The fact its 2018 and we still don't have an online ticketing system is nothing short of embarassing. Clubs will be teleporting fans to game before we get rid of paper tickets.
    The lack of technology undermines all the good work we do to encourage young fans to come to games.

    There are clubs who do 15 games season tickets (in Englandshire) and they have to nominate what games they are going to attend when the tickets for that match go on sales
    That requires a ticket management system online and the selling of tickets online but that is the kind of ticket that would entice a lot more people to buy (the clubs still do full season tickets as well)

    I like to budget my money so I know how much to put aside for my ticket - I've put the same + 10% aside just incase but it would better knowing a few months ago because some people will need to save for a couple of months
