    With Crewe away coming up at the end of March, just wondering if this would be a good game for another protest.
    Easy to get too, good small ground which we can sell out, stands close to the pitch.
    If we sell out 2 stands then it could be possible to disrupt the game with tennis balls, toilet rolls and the like?

    Any ideas on this?

    That all sounds a bit simple simon, sorry but it had to be said. On a serious note I think disrupting games is a bad idea, it will IMO alienate us from the players and could affect performance on the pitch at a time when we still need points. Keep the protests in the stands.

    It doesn't matter about protests anymore mate. Our owners don't care about "bad" publicity because in their world it's good publicity . Think of it this way , if you had a few million quid and wanted a return with profit would you give it someone who had ethics or someone who is ruthless ?
    I know what I would do . That's why the end game is getting nearer. CCFC are now insignificant .

    The suggestion of doing when and why signs again remind me of the Father Ted episode where Dougall is stuck on the milk float, and after hours of planning. The best idea they could come up with was 'another mass'.

    Because its been done. Done well aswell. But will be near pointless doing it again.

    Nice Rocky reference in your username btw.

    I agree about overuse of WHY and WHEN. But then people took the piss out of my Big Issue idea.

    What about that German one I posted (it'd ideally need the home fans support too though): We could fill the place, then be dead silent until the 12th minutes (12th man) where we erupt with noise for the rest of the game?

    Just trying to throw out some alternative protests.

    That said, I won't be doing another game this season I think.

    Yeah, that idea is shite.

    You wouldn't really be able to delineate silence and non silence in a cauldron of noise like Gresty Rd

    Throwing anything on to the pitch would be deemed a criminal act. Cameras would identify the culprits and early morning knocks on the door would occur along with banning orders.
    I did read a while back somewhere up north a fan protest at a non league ground over moving grounds (sounds similar) fans used whistles to disrupt play and I think the game was abandoned.

    Sheffield United away should be the main protest as its the last game of the season.

    Klingon? You have gone all Star Trek. If Spock did a Vulcan Mind Probe on you or your friend he could be searching for a very long time.
