Given it's not entirely unknown for posters to come on here suggesting we might learn a lesson or two from the Chiefs, thought this story was worth sharing:


Can't help thinking the comment from the Chiefs' media and communications officer is particularly unhelpful / insensitive. Hold your hand up, admit you got it wrong, apologise, and I'm sure most people would have been prepared to forgive and forget. Can't imagine for one minute our media team making such a big faux pas!

Going mental at wembley row 131 between seats 234-
Why not have 500 tickets per game available to Flybe staff for the rest of the season as the games aren't selling out but they have got to be applied for by midday the day before the match, if they aren't taken they can then be sold on the day? The majority of tickets will be back on general sale but it shows willing in the media and the potential of money being made on refreshments or future ticket sales from the people taking up the offer or their friends/children etc.

Great last line about the contrast between the Chief's & City's handling of the issue.

Aside from the PR angle, the legalities of this are also interesting.

One would assume, Flybe pay the Chiefs upfront for their sponsorship, in which case there ought to be no issue with the tickets; even if that's not the case, would assume the Chiefs should be pursuing any debt with Flybe's administrators rather than denying admission to those who turned up at Sandy Park with tickets.

Fellow Grecians.
If the following story is true Exeter Chiefs should hang their heads in shame.
I'd like to think this would never happen at fan owned Exeter City who value what Flybe did for us over the years.
On behalf of fellow Exonians I apologise to all X Flybe employees involved and hope that you will be warmly welcomed at St James Park should you visit us.

I have very little time for the lot over at sandy park but I wouldn’t go gloating to much, in no way shape or form is city perfect.

As a few former members of certain supporters group would tell you, it’s all an act at times at SJP also depends if you fall into a certain narrow group of people.

Good that we are letting former flybe staff in to tomorrow’s game for free mind.
