    I'm not sure you can boycott now when we need a deal from them and if we were to approach them now and threaten to boycott in the future unless they gave us a deal, kind of comes across as blackmail.

    What I would like to know, following Specs' post is, how many City fans also attend Wasps.

    I think there could be a lot of pressure there if Wasps ST holders, who are also City fans said they would give up going if the Sky Blues are found to be homeless.

    Not blackmail.

    Wasps need the council onboard I think. They see them as some kind of allies at the moment. I think that is why they are toeing the line they are toeing.

    So drop the legals against the council and we will do a deal isn't but do a deal else city fans will give you a headache isn't?

    That's exactly why wasps and the council piss themselves.

    Drop the legals or we won’t do a deal. Do a deal or we won’t buy tickets for your games. How are they different? They are both ultimatums.

    Yeah, when the trust are going to the national media to say how great an event one of their first games was. I can't see it happening.

    Big difference to my mind, if Wasps are just wanting to keep the council sweet. That is not of their own volition and they would be just taking onboard the advice from elsewhere.

    I am of course just guessing their reasoning, but that seems to be the only reasoning possible doesn't it? That the council have advised Wasps not to deal with Sisu whilst the legals are going on.

    That's not just Wasps doing so off their own back, that is with pressure from the council, whom they wish to keep onboard.

    Quite clear difference to me.

    The council and Sisu are the two main players here.

    So wasps are being blackmailed by the council to blackmail us?

    I am saying one is different, because it is a kind of forced upon them stance.

    If there is blackmail it is from the council. If Wasps have development plans they need the council on side.

    Isn't that what you think? There is no other reason for Wasps stance is there?

    It's forced upon the fans, they want their club to exist.

    As the legal row goes on, it probably stops them signing much needed sponsorship contracts.

    It's the same with Jon Sharpe isn't it?

    Why won't he deal with Sisu?

    In what way? People won't sponsor them because of legal action against the council?

    It should be full throttle boycott anyway. How anybody could have the audacity to whine about SISU but embrace Eastwood and co is beyond me

    While there's doubt over what happens with the stadium, would you sign a long-term deal to sponsor it?

    I wouldn't!

    Surely the only doubt is if we are there or not? That's only the naming rights of it.

    Surely they just do a deal based on us not being there and the sponsor gets a bonus if we are.

    No, I agree. I just cannot see people getting off their backsides and doing so until we are homeless though.

    Which comes back to the point that everybody gets fired up about sisu by the media and fans groups and ignores everybody else.

    Yes, but I do think many believe Wasps hold the cards and don't want to piss them off.

    As I keep saying, it's Sisu and the council that need to be the main targets.

    Why?

    Surely it should be anybody who can either make a decision or influence one?

    You leave one out, they can take the piss.

    To clarify I said I am personally against the idea of telling people how they shouldn’t be spending their money. What gives you, I or anyone else the right to do that? I didn’t go to Sixfields but it angered me that so many had a go at those that wanted to support their team. Is that wrong?

    Luton is a great choice to stage a protest. Tommy Robinson's home town. Gives all his fan boys extra incentive to crack the smoke bombs out, get the yellow vests out and... protest against all sides
