    Just so you guys know, the whole East Stand (left hand side as you look from the hill) is currently demolished whilst Cardoza builds his double decker stand with corporate boxes...boxes that will give 400 seats less of a view than you get from the hill!

    Anyway, the point is you might be able to watch the game from the back of the stadium (without going in) and it would be harder for the TV cameras to ignore protesters/banners standing there.

    Im paying to watch the football Tony. Im not being exploited. Im only being "mocked" on here by fellow Coventry fans. Thats the really sad thing.

    You can be an athiest and be holier than thou old fruit - as you prove with every faux intellectual, cod philosophy, post of yours.

    I missed one word out - despite you and Tony scuttling round the issue you know exactly what I am saying.

    Let's try again. Do you think the suffragette movement benefited from its high profile protests inside ascot or do you think they would have been more successful sitting quietly on a hill outside or perhaps at home?

    The notion someone will not enter a ground on moral issues when they seek to change a situation they are not happy with is nonsense.

    The reality, which I suspect you and Tony are trying to avoid addressing, is that if there was a protest inside the ground there would be apathy. The hill people do not protest - they watch the game and numbers generally are small.

    My belief is if several thousand protestors would enter the ground and protest on a consistent basis it would eventually have an impact. To refuse to do so as it gives money to the owners is. Kop out. You either do not have faith in the protest or believe insufficient would bother to attend.

    We are all just playing with this, stop your fucking bickering and stick together for once.
    The FL, SISU, CCC and ACL have to start talking and put this shit to bed.

    Show everyone we still exist, we still care and want one club in Coventry.
    If those who still insist in showing support for our owners and go to games inside Shitfields then show some balls and protest inside.
    Those who can get to Northampton and go on the Hill do so and make one hell of protest.

    Others like me who have almost given up the fight can sit in Spain and dream of what could have been.

    PS. If I were not away I WOULD be in that bloody hill.

    I didn't realise that the suffragettes were protesting about horse racing I always thought it was about the rights of women to vote? Still you learn something new everyday.

    In answer to your question. Not paying to go in is a protest. Standing on the hill is a protest. Going only to away games is a protest. Signing the KCIC epetition is a protest. Going to arsenal and holding up why and when posters is a protest and all these protest have gained media attention both locally and nationally and occasionally even further a field. To suggest that these protests are not being noticed by our owners is a nonsense, so they are directly in there face.

    To pay to go into sixfields and sit there all nice and quiet like good little sisu boys (I would say and girls but the girls at least had the balls to do something while they were there on a couple of occasions last season) is defeatist. You may as well stop supporting CCFC and start following NTFC now because you're lack of anything is only sending out the message that you're happy to be there. I'll continual to do my protest either from the Hill or by not going at all. You keep doing what you've been doing, nothing, except judge and dismiss those who care enough to say enough is enough. Just further proof that you are happy with SISU's actions. You don't even like the city of Coventry, I really don't understand what qualifies you to still be classed as a supporter.

    Seriously? That's your belief?

    Yet 0 fans would make no difference you claim?

    The protest at Arsenal made you difference you claimed?

    In fact you've been scornful of every single protest suggested, but suddenly you think one inside Sixfields will bring us home, just as it happens to be a useful argument to bash your fellow fans with, what a surprise.

    Indeed you do. The reason was to protest in front of the Royal Box as they were considered the establishment and Emily Davison through herself in front of the King’s Horse. The comparison therefore is completely relevant.

    Hmmm, agree and disagree. Agree because I think it could work. Disagree because I think for it to work it would involve not being strictly "legal".

    Personally I don't consider the hillers as protesters. More as fans who want to watch their team but don't agree with the sixfields move.

    I fail to see how it is “bashing fellow fans”

    The suggestion that the missing 7,500 do not go to Sixfields due to their code of honour is actually absurd. If this was the case the club would easily have that many at every away game in a 40 mile radius. Other than the Franchise Fun Day this does not happen. It is ultimately because of inconvenience that a large amount to not attend. There is no moral debate here.

    Of course there is a strong logical argument to support a large scale protest inside the ground. All that is happening now is that some non-attendees are bashing the attendees for apathy at not protesting. Large scale protests in the ground including after the game will necessitate a large police presence and it will make our stay there less popular with the local community. This will not happen, not through a great moral issue, but due to apathy.

    The Emirates game was a huge opportunity missed. The supporters should have purchased tickets – had a large protest board stuck in the stadium – and all staged a sit in outside Football League HQ. Merely attending away games gives no lasting message at all.

    Clearly I'll have to bow to your higher intellect young padawan.. I'm here to debate CCFC related matters.. not throw personal rocks as you seem to...you've completely taken umbrage and the wrong end of the stick.

    1-I genuinely did not understand your post- no slight intended- you are overly sensitive. It wasnt contrite or aligned with Tony- I don't scuttle- Man up G
    2-Why is it nonsense to not enter the ground on the basis of principle, its a little like opposing the grand national and going to Aintree isn't it.. or having a go on the office flutter... or...?
    3- The Hill protest is limited numbers-I agree but doesn't that fall into the same argument as the one you try to make-"My belief is if several thousand protestors would protest on the *hill and protest on a consistent basis it would eventually have an impact......"

    My own personal protest isn't based on NOPM but principle of right and wrong... my view and one shared by the majority, one which I have maintained and from the get go, unlike some maybe?

    Not for you, no.

    That does not by definition mean that there is no moral debate for others.
