You are right. It doesn’t go well with the shorts. Are they changing the shorts or using these same ones from last season? The shirt on its own is fine. I suppose they could have had another white stripe under the arms and that would be problem solved. I also hadn’t noticed until I saw your post.
Great post Bill, but I fear it was wasted on Danny. I know it's hard to resist sometimes, but wherever possible, DON'T FEED THE TROLL!The club, like any other limited company, is owned by its shareholders. The biggest and majority shareholder is ECST, a Trust made up of those supporters of ECFC who wish to paticipate through a minimum commitment of £25 per year, which gives them equal standing with other members regardless of financial input. Our shareholding doesn't give us the autonomy that 75% or 90% shareholding would, but the control it does give makes it possible to act mostly as if we were the sole owners , due to our ability to out vote all other share holders in any general meetings of ECFC.
We the supporters, through membership of the Trust, are owners of the club through our shareholding, (we would still be even if we had a minority holding) we are not the sole owners as there are other shareholders, but we are owners and do have a controlling interest.
Most companies' shareholders are simply that and have no say whatsoever in the running of the club, we however as collectively majority shareholders are able to appoint half the business's board, those members selected by our democratically elected executive. An executive all members can put themselves forward for election to, therefore any supporter could become a club director through this process.
This may not be my ideal of how to organise and empower members due to my own politics, which I recognise as being radical, but it is an perfect example of how representative democracy works and is accepted throughout most of the world.
So go on Chip, tell me why i'm wrong and how we're not the owners of the club!
Sorry for taking the thread off puste everyone, but this nonsense has to be challenged.
Still hate the new shirt though, but then any shirt without red and white stripes over the whole of the front and back while raise my ire!
Sorry for taking the thread
