ARGYLE HOME DISPLAY (amongst others): Red Legion needs you!
----


Exeter City supporter's group 'Red Legion' - raising money for the 2016/17 season. We've had some great donations so far - the more we raise the more we can produce for next seasons big games. Work has already started on the Argyle display, it should be a cracker.

-----



Last season a group of City fans decided to get together and attempt to improve the noise levels at St James Park, as well as bringing colour to the stands.
Following on from last year and particularly the display for Liverpool, we're keen to kick on and produce more displays for key games during the 2016/17. This will include the first home game of the season, and more than likely the Derby game.
Thanks to the generosity of fellow Grecians the FA Cup display was a success, so we're asking anyone who would like to help us out to donate and enable us to purchase the various materials required for the new season.
UTC!

Sorry to triple post but it's also worth mentioning that we're doing a big push now because of the turnaround of a lot of materials we'll need for this display, plus the time to physically make the thing!

Sorry to say that I won't be donating after last nights incident with the smoke bombs at the Taunton game. No way for me to know for sure that I'm not paying for pyrotechnics.

Terry, I can tell you for a fact that no pyro has been purchased by RL as a group. All we've purchased is a new flag/banner and numerous materials for the argyle display in particular. So don't make presumptions however tempting that is.

Sorry to hear that Terry as it wasn't any of the core group that put in all the hard work that let off or threw the pyro. I can assure you no donations were spent on pyro nor would we think of doing that. The new flag and the new banner were example of where funds are going. We have also started an argyle display and are spending the money wisely.

It is a shame that after all the time and hard work we have put in to improve the atmosphere at the ground thatwe would be disregarded by an incident like this.

I agree, it is a massive shame.

None that are paid for by me, and every time you do see them it incurs a CHF 10,000 fine from the SFA for the club involved (without exception)... maybe that's why we ended up getting relegated last season, all of the budget went on fines ;)

I would say that's a fair assessment, but as a matter of principle on my part, whilever some element of the RL is throwing pyro about, I won't be donating. It's not an image of the club I want to support, and those at the core of RL (who I agree are doing great work) should be able to cut that element out of their movement.

On the understanding that the RL does genuinely not condone the letting off of flares and other pyrotechnics, which as has been said is a criminal offence and can also lead to a long, possibly lifetime, ban from attending football matches, I'm prepared to contribute again.

A formal statement to that effect might be helpful to others who are hesitant?

I will contribute again as well, seems very unfair to punish the whole group, they have added to the match day experience, and the stuff they did for liverpool at home must have taken ages

I have made a contribution today as I agree with the points made that the actions of one idiot, however extreme that idiot might be, should not undermine the good work of many others who are putting in a lot of effort to improve the matchday experience. Keep up the good work to those that are pulling in the right direction.

Time to move on from Taunton to Blackpool and the B Team Boycott I would suggest!
