General Our sponsor is Vodafone.

Not Vodaphone.

Please, if you are going to go see Wayne at least get our major sponsor's spelling correct.

I posted this in the appropriate thread but it seemed to be deleted because it was not on topic. If you don't wish to be taken seriously then feel free to walk into a meeting with a professional sports team without being able to spell our major sponsor's name correctly.

We are not taking a black-board and chalk with us are we??? Who cares how its spelt. We'll be talking and discussing , not going to a spelling contest. If I/We want you advice we will ask for it. But that will be never. !!!

Nice response.

I mean really, you expect to be taken seriously and your not even meeting in person to discuss what you need to talk about before you go into it?

In all seriousness, you guys need to take this a bit more seriously if you want Wayne to take action.

You just closed some young kids thread because the English didn't exactly flow all that nicely. So if spelling doesn't matter, get on with it and don't close his thread.

Every single thing you guys have raised is a marketing issue. Wayne Scurrah is the bloody CEO and has better things to do quite frankly.

If you really want action, talk to Richard Howarth.

But then again, I know nothing.

If you must know, I am closer to Wayne than anybody here. And we have representatives on our committee who will put forward a good case. We also have enough knowledge about what we want, and will try to get. Why go to someone in the middle when we can go straight to the top. Its people like you who make me sick. WE need everyone behind us, but no, not you. All you're making a fuss about is a spelling error. We're focussing a bigger things than that.
Go to sleep.!!

Oh by the way, I deleted your post. It seems you cant read. And yet you have a go at a spelling error.

Private debate mate. You chill out.
And I will defend anyone who is trying to do good for us. Ozbash is and I will defend him. There are many many spelling errors on this board. Go sort that out Wiki.

Sorry DMM but if you know anything then going to the top is actually slower than going to the actual person in charge of what you want changed. Put it that way, it seems logical right?

So heres what I bet happens: you present your ideas to Wayne. Do you think he controls half time entertainment? Most probably not. So, you present your ideas and then they MIGHT make changes but are they what you wanted? Most probably not. Why? Because Wayne had to relay the information to the manager in charge and information was lost on the way.

:roll:

Thats you problem DMM. Sure you are a great fan, but you don't give a crap about the knowledge of others. Someone spelt it wrong and I posted a nice suggestion to change it, but it was deleted. Nice professionalism. I knew what the thread was for and I gave you a HELPFUL suggestion. I didn't ATTACK Ozbash. I offered him a suggestion. I have lay down strong here because of the idiotic behaviour shown by you.

Frankly I'm surprised Wayne even has time for you, most CEO's would put you to the person in charge.

Its like designing a car and you have an idea for a new shell. Go for it, go to the CEO of Ford but do you think action will be taken? Of course not, he has bigger things to worry about. Thats what Product Managers are for.

You may constantly talk down to others and some people might put up with that, but the bigger man is one that admits when he is wrong.

You constantly give me advice about life DMM.

Take some yourself.

I will take any advice that will help us get what we want Not a little "petty" thing that you put up. Geez we're not all bright in spelling like you. But if it would make you happy, why dont I just pull the plug on it all. Would that spelling mistake be that important then.

Its not about the spelling mistake.

Its that you don't take advice. I offered some advice and you shoved it in my face.

I'm telling you that the Marketing Manager is in charge of everything you guys have bought up.

You don't have to take it, just like you can go into the meeting spelling Vodafone wrong. But I'm giving you advice from someone who knows a thing or two, and the more professional you can be in a situation like this, the better. So take what you like from that. If you deduced that I hate the Warriors and hate all of you then so be it.

But don't tell me to go to bed and don't act like I don't know anything when you are the one making basic errors.

Marketing had NOTHING to do with this AT FIRST buddy. Read your opening thread again. If you suggested straight off Marketing Manager, I would have agreed with you. Now you're changing tact.

i believe an informal meeting has been set up on saturday wiki, but point taken.

what i wrote up in the thread was the gist of what i hope is related verbally to the warriors boss. i wont be printing it out and waving it under his snoz. :)

i am grateful to the people who offer criticism and sugestion, it helps keep the idea running in a straight direction.

i firmly believe that when this is put to the club and accepted, we will see some fairly big changes in the way the fan is treated .

it will be the fans (you, me,dmm, uncle tom cobbley) who will be calling some of the shots. we wont have things dished up for us anymore, we will be writing the menu.

Course at first it didn't. It had to do with the fact that I offered a simple fix for something that may not be important to you, but that will make an impression on Wayne.

Its small, and it doesn't mean much to you but if your offering a proposal then it will make a difference.

On a side note, don't just go in there with 5 things bullet pointed.

In fact, I suggest a page report on each topic that you bring up. In the report you need to discuss:
  • *Firstly, your idea.
    *What significant difference will it make?
    *What is in it for the Warriors?
    *How much will it cost to implement?
    *Who is going to do it?
    *What are the positives / negatives about the idea?
    *How will it be implemented?
You can't walk in with an idea with nothing to back it up (not saying you were going to do that) as Wayne will have heard it all before - people talk, noone does anything.

Now you're offering something constructive Wiki. Its unfortunate that a couple of us are on dial-up or the chatroom would be the place to discuss such things like you have put forward. That is why I have made us meet up three quarters of an hour before, so we can talk about such things. Not the way you have it listed, but pretty close. Keep those suggestions up and I might think you are trying to help out.

wiki, anyone who knows ozbash, knows he can't spell to save himself.
He was trying to relay what he would verbally say so you guys on the forum could see.
He won't print it out and then hold the floor so Mr Scurrah can sit and listen to him waffle, it was to give forum members an idea.

Don't knock something before it's happened. You don't know what will come out of this meeting, we don't know but at least it's a start.. he may point us somewhere else, that's great. Baut at least he's giving us his valuable time.
And at least we are making the effort, what are you doing?

I just want to make it clear that I wasn't knocking anybody.

I appreciate the time you guys are putting in. I politely suggested this in another thread, however it was deleted and I got a little upset ;).

I wasn't trying to put anyone down. I want success at this meeting as much as anyone, and I was hoping that any proposal that was put forward to Wayne was not hindered by a few spelling mistakes.

Cheers.

I had more fun at Jade pre-match than I have had at Ericsson. We're gonna give it a good try at beating you southerners.

point taken Wiki

anything constructive is certainly taken on board ;)

The fact the Wayne has agreed to see some fans is excellent, and we certainly won't scare him off, or bomb him with ' do this' do that' scenarios.

Basically, you guys are all clowns nagging on about spelling and getting messages across? Nobody cares about your petty arguments- why waste space on this forum to talk about something nobody cares about! How about grow up and get a life!!!

Tezzah, I think you might be surprised by how many people actually do care that a fan representation is meeting with Wayne Scurrah, and most of them seem to want us to leave a good impression. Wiki was just trying to help us out.

Your criticism would be much more helpful if it was constructive. ;)
