It would be nice if the club could give us some sort of virtual attendance so we could actually know what we're actually debating properly

I think there would be more watching than people think

😂happens at every club no doubt
Just before the insects got the ricoh, never anyone on the turnstiles.....think it may have been concession tickets. Like i said, we were really shit and probably just doing the club a favour by turning up haha! Oh the dark days!

I just hope no-one who illegally streams the games has the temerity to moan about any lack of investment in the near future if we're struggling and can't afford to buy anyone in Jan.

Robbie mate, I doubt there are very many people on here that haven't watched an illegal stream of some sort or purchased a copied movie on DVD a few years back.... ALL BREAKING THE LAW .. Infact nick himself says he does but not with city... So I mean there's clearly alot of hypocrisy within this whole debate... The term grass is just another word for telling on people, it's a perfectly reasonable phrase.

Give yourself a pat on the back though if reporting streams are your thing...most people just think its a bit sad
Yeah there is a lot of hypocrisy with piracy. I pirate movies, though I also have Netflix and Disney+ subs and go to the cinema. It’s wrong, but my rationale is they’re massive organisations and frankly I don’t mind if a couple go bust. Cheating your club out of income is different IMO. It’s the difference between shoplifting in Tesco and stealing your nans last tenner.

Especially as I don’t sit here whining that Disney don’t invest enough in their movies.

Like I said its an emotional argument, it's equally as wrong though in reality

Best part of 400k over the course of the year. Whilst some of those (maybe a lot, who knows) wouldn't pay every week it's still a significant amount of lost revenue. Fully support the club shutting it down.
Probably O Hare’s wages for the year...

You're not great at this debating stuff ... Nothing I said is incorrect, it's a purely emotional argument based on a football club you support, if people are happy to do it to other sporting clubs but act outraged when it's city, then they're argument is entirely flawed .. YoU GeTz Me FAm Innit...

Im not sure morality is binary TBH
I can't remember if it was here or gmk but i remember being criticised for buying a juvenile ticket. My brother did it into his 40s. I'll still give it a go if need be
Just as bad.

This isn’t rocket science. Every person who rips off the club means the decent fans have to pay more. Why should they subsidise you?

Everything in law in an emotional argument. Me not killing people is an emotional argument. Property law is an emotional argument.

Ofcourse, but you cant flip flop between what is right and wrong just solely based of you're own interests... If its wrong it's wrong.
The argument is based solely on the fact they support Coventry so it's an emotional argument

Not really the same. At least someone is paying for it in that situation.

It's cool if you do it, just don't moan if we don't spend enough or if performances aren't good enough.

I'm guessing oggy oi or whatever his name is pays for it, he just has 7000 mates 🤷.

I dont get peoples argument, it's OK for me just not with city, its OK for him because he's doing it less than that... If if its Liverpool its fair game but city need the money, steal from big companies but not from small ... It's all over the place.

You're either against it completely or you're not

Literally everyone does this! What do you think politics is or is it just chance those without assets vote left and those with vote right?

Your argument is emotional. You “want” to watch football games but don’t want to pay. Calling something an emotional argument isn’t some winning move.

Jesus none of us need to watch a bunch of grown men kick a bag of wind about the place. If you’re going all autistic 17 year old that just found YouTube morality you should be sneering at the entire enterprise of following a team. Given that you accept the emotion of following said team you’ve got to accept the argument on those terms.

It's quite simple, if you do something yourself then moan about others doing similar... It's to be expected that you won't be taken seriously.
That's not autistic, that's real

It's an emotional argument because you support Coventry city and suddenly it's bad... Ofcourse it's based on emotion.. The argument is fuelled by your emotion for the club as you don't care if its Liverpool or man utd.

And as I've said there will be thousands over a season not paying watching with friends who never paid... It's equally as bad using all of your logic, because they're taking money off the club.

I'm not reporting streams, I personally don't care as I know full well I've done it before... Therefore I'd be a bit of a hypocrite

You're all talking about lost revenue, but you also have no idea how many of those 7000 viewers would have purchased a game pass anyway... Pure guess work

I'm out.. Because we will go round in circles😂 I won't stop people reporting streams so it's a pointless argument

I'm going to have to watch this week out on my phone. Anybody know of a good free (or cheap) VPN that works on iOS? PM me if you don't want to put it out on the forum.

Not tried it for video but I use VPN360 the free version just lets you select USA. Don’t know if it’ll do the trick for just logging in then use your U.K. connection to stream like worked last year.

Worth trying without of course. Worked for me all last season and for the Barnsley game.
