Through the looking glass dot com.
We’ve hit a point with this whole stadium charade now that using words like ‘inauthentic’ and exploitative’ is about as powerful as describing Mein Kampf as ‘a bad read’.
Only an educationally subnormal child would view the ‘Fan Familiarisation’ event on 16th of December as a meaningful experience.
This is a staged piece of nonsense from Levy & Co., designed to boost supporter morale over Christmas.
In order to satisfy the relevant authorities, there will need to be more traffic through the stadium’s turnstiles than 2 batches of 3000 punters.
What really grates, grates more than the the masquerade that Levy is a fit and proper CEO, is that the performing sea-lions being wheeled into this initial test event are being charged admission.
I’m fully aware it’s only £1, but this is an cold as ice opportunism to cover the staffing costs for the day.
I get there has to be a charge to make the system work, but EVERY other company in the world gets around this sort of requirement and legality by making vouchers worth 0.00001p or whatever.
So wheel ’em in and sell ’em something, despite the fact they’re still not able to watch Spurs play.
I’m not a massive Tech head – is that ‘virtual reality’ thing people have been on about?
This is a different level of opportunism – to be filed somewhere between winning on a scratch-card and people trafficking.
Levy must be commended here and publicly, as I am assured he has been privately.
This is inspirational stuff.
This blogger looks forward to the inevitable new low – the first video of 3000 fans chanting ‘Come On You Spurs’ …at an empty pitch.
