    It wasn’t a leap. It was a non sequitur.

    My 7th pint probably played a part too.

    Wondering if anybody knows if there were any plans to do half season tickets this year? Was thinking of giving one as a gift for xmas this year if so.

    Wondering when we started letting people sell copies of Socialist Worker inside the ground? :hmm:

    Hadn’t seen them before myself. Not something I feel hugely comfortable with to be honest.

    That’s fine. After all, living with things you aren’t entirely comfortable with, but that don’t harm anyone else is a big part of life.

    To the best of my knowledge one regular supporter brings several copies each week and sells them to the same handful of friends who ask for a copy, and has been doing so for several years. He's not seeking to sell them to Hamlet supporters in general, which is probably why you've never noticed before.

    A few seasons back one of our home games was sponsored by one of the major Trade Unions, whose members were handing out leaflets promoting a march/demo. A bloke I didn't recognise as a Hamlet supporter thrust one into my hand and said "See you there". That annoyed me; implying that I had some sort of duty to support his cause when he didn't even know me and had never spoken to me before, so his leaflet went staight in the bin.

    Not sure the SWP falls into the category of never having harmed anyone else to be honest. But there we are.

    Same as most organisations. I’ll be sure to point that out to Oxfam next time I see someone.

    I personally would be opposed to people selling any party political publications inside the ground
    As has often been said football is political - but party political inside the ground would IMO be the wrong ethos

    Handing out leaflets or selling publications outside the ground is of course there choice

    Agree with PartisanDulwich on this. The only things sold within the curtilage of the ground itself should be those endorsed by the club.

    I don’t think that does or should ever include partisan political messaging. We are a football club where everyone should feel welcome - with no party political associations.

    Whilst we have a reputation for being a progressive club, most of the causes DHFC has supported reflect the community we serve - food banks, refugees, LGBT, mental health and youth safety charities to name just a few. In reality they are entirely mainstream to the extent that the W.I. (absolutely no slight intended - they do great work) would be happy to support them.

    If the SWP get their feet under the door at Hamlet they'll soon be busy exploiting the club for their own ends.

    This is mad :D people doing things they have always done is now a bad thing.

    Not that I’m arguing with anyone for once. Nothing will change :)

    Agreed. Much of our strength has come from the simple fact that the club is a genuine voice and positive influence in the local community and a place where (hopefully) everyone feels welcome.

    That in itself makes our influence more powerful than any party political association could ever achieve. It is why people from disparate political sources have felt able to support us. If that changes it will be detrimental to the club.

    Haha! Fair enough. If people haven’t noticed in the past (I haven’t) then perhaps I’m over-reacting.

    Am I wrong in never having had you marked down as a big SWP supporter though B.I.G ? :D

    Does everyone disagree with the SWP :D cos everyone always disagrees with me :D

    But I’m a big supporter of long term Dulwich fans doing what they have always done, without being restricted. So hopefully that will remain the case.

    Even the Tory ones :facepalm:

    Well complain to the Club not here.... It's never been officially allowed. I think he doesn't approach people, he has regulars coming up to him...

    Oh so we can accept Rio Ferdinand as the saviour of Dulwich but for some reason we draw the line at Shaun Wright-Phillips

    Fucking fickle football fans

    Two breaches of FA Rule E1(b)

    • It is alleged that Dulwich Hamlet FC failed to comply with FA Rule C1(f)(i) and C1(f)(ii) in that Daniel Pappoe played for the club in the above six fixtures without the Club receiving confirmation of registration from The FA.

    Charge Admitted – Personal Hearing requested

    Are we on the hook for a points deduction? We only picked up four from those at least.

    gnar182 i am an okay person

    That doesn’t sound good...

    could we not argue that he was so shite that it was actually detrimental to play him and we’ve already been punished enough?
  28. B.I.G

    B.I.G Well-Known Member

    I heard from a very reliable source that he had been registered as Daniel Crappoe and that's the root cause of the issue.

    The supporter in question has sold them discreetly, as far as I know for many years, without publically displaying them before. As number of our fans have been SWP members for years, as have some Lib Dems, as have some, whisper it, tories.

    I am presuming from my limited knowledge that we could, and in my personal opinion as i've heard nothing, probably will lose four points. I am also presuming, again heard nothing just my personal deductions, why the Club Committee Secretary stood down recently for, ahem, 'work commitments'. Whatever happens...onwards and upwards...and let's earn enough points to stay up & put this behind us, if we are deducted anything.
