    The whole thing stinks!

    My reading of the situation is:

    This appears to be a case of our chairman using the club to do his mate a favour - this isn’t a huge issue as those sort of relationships can often be beneficial for the club and its supporters, except that...

    Similar bottles for other clubs appear to be over £20 cheaper.

    The article on the club website doesn’t mention anything about whether the club makes any money from this. If it will then it should say so.

    Throw in the fact that the person behind this appears to support views on the Hillsborough tragedy which I would hope the club and its supporters don’t condone in any way, then I’m really struggling to see why the club should support this and would like the club to remove the article from the website.

    There can be no justification for retweeting "jokes" referencing the Hillsborough disaster. We do not know what, if any, relationship exists between the club and gin producer, but we are calling on the club to cut any and all ties with them. We have also requested the article to be removed off the club website.

    The bottom half of the picture (cut off here) isn't particularly pleasant either.

    Literally. It even has Rutland as a separate county.

    Guess the comedy genius behind that map couldn't think of anything for Northern Ireland. :thumbsdown:

    Not the greatest marketing plot to be referring to your target market in such homophobic terms as “rent boys” ‍♀️

    I'm not sure if he'd mentioned enough on Twitter that the Chairman is a good friend of his.
    What I can mention is he sounds a prick.

    I love me some cheesy football club branding of any old shite in the name of marketing. It typifies Modern Football perfectly.

    My personal favorite is still Man United's official tractor.

    if only we were playing as well as United. (Never thought I’d say that).

    Also, it’s killing me trying to work out who that player is.

    Ander Herrera? That's a guess.

    It should really be Phil Jones, although that's doing a disservice to tractors' turning circles.

    They're more Massey Ferguson than Alex Ferguson these days.

    With the Dulwich demographic becoming more or more Village expect there will shortly be an official Dulwich tractor... sorry Chelsea...

    I'm late to this, but has anyone considered if there's any connection to the air freshener incident?

    I've heard that the Official Dulwich Hamlet Gin (TM) has been contamination by a really bad batch of acid. Stay safe, kids.
