Information for any boycotters

If you are boycotting the play offs, because you do not wish to give your money to Roland, please read the rules below.

The money from the play offs is pooled, & 50% of the funds are shared between the 4 clubs.

So Charlton get just 12.5% of the total revenue if I am correct.

I just thought you should be aware if you wanted to come along. Regards to all.

    Disappointingly he’s not turned up for his 7am shift this morning 
    To be fair to him if you'd been constantly banging your head against a brick wall you'd probably have a day off 😉.
  • I get your point Covered End but it’s actually 25% as we’d get 12.5% of the pooled money for all the leagues as well as 12.5% of the pooled money for our league.
  • Item 6.6.2 Above says that we only get 12.5% shared between the 4 clubs taking part in the divisions play off. I can't see we get a share of the Championship and Leauge Two pools.

    Getting a bit worried now , this sites gone to pot since he was last active.
    Probably drove up to Donny at 3am to demand these extra 800 tickets

  • Thanks for the info Covered End. I've got my away tickets and am happy with that, thanks.

    Anyway it begs the question, who's siphoning off the money if the clubs only get 50% between them? Here it just says, "50% of the Net Gate Receipts shall be paid into the Pool Account referred to in Article 35".  Pool fund!  Is Harvey using the cash to build himself an Olympic-sized plaything?
  • To those fans who are still having digs at the fans who have boycotted over the last few seasons because of the way roland has all but destroyed the club.

    How many of you stopped going to games during the Selhurst/Upton Park seasons?

    Nobody had sarcastic digs at you back then or said you weren’t a “real fan”. What’s the difference between boycotting then & boycotting now?

    FYI I attended the majority of games during those seasons, including when I had no money because of unemployment, & when ill with pneumonia.

    Social media is the difference here. 
    I went to Shithurst & met many a fan who boycotted then, usually in the pub. 
    We’d chat, face to face, have a laugh then buy each other a drink. 
    Sad but true.

    Someone tell Rolly. He will put a round up someone’s bottom if it does not get his full share.
  • I have read from top to bottom and can’t see anyone chewing out boycotters.

  • There is no right or wrong in attending/not attending.
    There is when it comes to you

    I fully understand why people have boycotted. For me I could never do that as spending time with my Dad is invaluable and I would never miss out on that. 

    However, if the boycotters come back for these games its their choice and they should be welcomed back with open arms. We are all FANS 
    If our Dad was still about and he wanted to go, we’d be taking him. 
    No question. 
    Give your Dad a cwtch from me. 
  • I would like to attend, but shall not do so.
    Percentages are irrelevant. I shall not support CAFC until a new ownership is realised.
    This is my opposition to the status quo.
    In seeking something positive from a negative situation I am using the free time to good effect in campaigning activities not related to football; in these I am enjoying success.

    Don't worry, he'll be gone soon.

    Jim Ratcliffe going through the EFL paperwork as we speak.
  • It's not even 12.5% of the price of a ticket, because that effectively includes VAT. So on £21 ticket the club will get approx £2.19p. 
  • I note the clubs don't get any TV money at all.

    I've decided to break my own boycott for the home leg. Possibly a bit hypocritical coming back for such a huge game but it's been 2 years for me, that's a fair few quid Roland has missed out on from me in that time, it's been very difficult at times to not go back especially this season but I need to get back for this match. Fair play to anyone still continuing to boycott you're stronger willed than I am.

    Going to the home leg after boycotting is not hypocritical in my view. Boycotting is really hard and in my opinion the best way of encouraging RD to sell.
    A losing strategy probably but nobody knows the answer when dealing with this likely sociopath (well, on the scale somewhere at least)!
    I have attended one home game per season for the last 3 seasons and managed to only spend £5 but will be going to the 2nd leg home game as my only visit this season and will have to pay the full price. Of course it is even harder to boycott when the team is doing so well and I may have even gone the whole season but I wanted to see this team at the Valley before it is invariably broken up this summer.
    When booking I looked at the season ticket page to see that some arsehole has already bought my 'boycotted' seat.....I will try and avoid eye contact because no doubt it would not end well.....

    A bit uncalled for mate. We're all friends here :-)
  • I haven’t attended a home game since the Coventry game in 2016. It would be hypocritical of me to pretend that boycotting has not been made easier by the fact that for the last 15 months I have lived in Wales. I can’t get to the home leg as I will be in Belgium that evening but I will find  somewhere where I can watch the game on the telly.

    I admire the fortitude of those such as Anna Kissed who will resist the lure of a Wembley final but I will go if we reach there. I will continue to boycott home games until Roland leaves.
