You could always post it if you wanted to give it some credence? I'm just not sure that openly-anti-ENIC/DL people are impartial enough for it to be taken as gospel.
I don't have it any more. But yes, I lurch from thread to thread bullshitting and am in no way impartial. Thanks.

Shall I get a petty dig in too and suggest rabid BSoDL can't be trusted likewise? No, I don't think I'll be that fucking arrogant or ignorant.

There are enough sensible people on both sides of that fence who don't deserve it.

You are completely missing the point. Again.

I didn’t say the club should furlough the players. I said they should also have looked at a wage cut. The players are not playing and they are basically on holiday - so a 20% pay cut would be fair. Players at other clubs have accepted pay cuts of up to 70%

By accepting just a 20% cut, it would have allowed the club to help the staff at the lower end of the pay scale. It would have been a really positive step, and set an example of a family culture within the club.

At my company, we have various ‘levels’ of staff. The highest level who all earn 6 or 7 figure salaries have all taken a small pay cut, which has then been passed down to those in level 1 and 2 - who are having to go into the office during this difficult (and somewhat dangerous) time. They are all receiving a 30% salary INCREASE.

This move has created an incredible positive response. The feeling around our business has been one of ‘we all look out for one another’ during times of need. I am really proud of the decisions we have made, despite it not helping me financially.

We are huge multinational financial services company. Typically looked upon as a greedy, corporate from the outside. We have done the same for clients. Waiving all fees when it will help them most.

We will lose hundreds of millions with these choices. But we have played the long game. We have made choices that are not based purely on immediate finances. We will survive this crisis financially, so other factors have become more important.

The club will easily survive this crisis, too. But they have NOT looked at the bigger picture, and they will lose out because of it.
How is yet another person missing the point that until there is unilateral agreement across the league, pfa, clubs, players, that enforcing a pay cut is not possible.

Actually, I don’t think you or anyone is missing that point, I think it’s being deliberately ignored, which is par for the course around here.

I’m assuming you’re not including me in that malaka :cautious:

Quite an over-reaction to basically an obvious point. Someone could write an entire thesis on the fundamentals of confirmation bias based on the threads on this forum alone.

So an opinion suits your agenda and " its definitely true and factually correct "
If the opinion does not suit your agenda " its lies and made up nonsense "
All quite clear really . So what's the problem ?

As you say........Basically in the interview Levy said neither he nor Lewis had any passion for football, that their interest was purely financial, football was under exploited and they are involved in football because it is the most popular sport therefore biggest money spinner.
Bollox, that's had a profound affect on my views of DL now.
Fuck, how do I delete old posts so I dont look like a dick.

But are topping up their wages so they still receive full pay, you missed that bit out, and is the reason Spurs are out on a limb because we aren't
Not with general public. The outrage is taking taxpayer money which they are doing exactly the same.

He has spoken many times since about his love of the club yet has no interest in football. Therefore I feel he has been disingenuous.
I believe he is a Spurs fan and I genuinely believe that he loves the club.
But ENIC is The English National Investment Compnay, making money is their priority. Once I realised that and and still saw progress on the pitch I was cool with it
