The Derry Fiasco

Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

I don't sit in the Derry, but my mate was telling me the carry on with shown the season ticket book continues, people are being randomly pick in the que to show their book, then again when entering the back of the Derry to take their seat.

How can they get away with doing this in one part of the ground, but not in any other part.

The match day experience is meant to be an enjoyable one, not a day to be remembered for harassment, surely the time has come to stop this stupid practice.

Pointless asking people to show ticket in Derry, as you need to wander to opposite end to go to the bogs anyway.

Whenever Im asked I just tell them to do one.

Yesterday me and a pal were standing out back leaning on the fence before kick off. He was using a vape thing. Two stewardesses stormed over wanting to throw him out straight away for smoking. He argued for a minute and they backed down saying he was warned. It's a joke that they actually treat paying customers the way I witnessed yesterday. If that is the way they wanna play the game then they will be finding it very hard to get by with nobody willing to be treated like that!

Policy is that no smoking is allowed in the stadium, including e-cigarettes, so don't see the problem.

That policy protects all our health and your mate was blatantly disregarding that policy. He should have gone in my opinion.

I had a go at one of the stewards yesterday outside the turnstile as one of my mates was carrying a plastic bag in. Rather than ask nicely if she could search the bag she basically snatched it out his hand and proclaimed "KIN EH SEE WHATS IN THAT BAG".

Do these people not realise that we are paying customers?

Fair enough policy is policy. But even as a non-smoker I think that is a ridiculous abuse of power. The best thing for the derry would be a smoking ember! And if you really think vaping is an acceptable offence to get thrown out for 5 minutes after you put 22 bucks in their hand (and have been doing for the best part of 20 years) then you are a misguided i would say. 

That is not even my point though it is the way he was treated and spoken to. If that is the level of customer support afforded to honest fans then I am disgusted. Somebody has told a story about the derry and everyone has bought into it, you would think it was the most dangerous stand in Britain the way we get treated.

Yes but I don't think that bothers them.

The two teenage lassies that are supposed to be overseeing the exit sit and swing on the rope that stops you using the proper exit.

It really is laughable.

Classed the same as smoking a normal cigarette in my work, gross misconduct.

So you just stand by and take it?  Somebody in Dens and your work has decided vaping is bad for you (ie not taxable so far) so you happily clap along to the tune? 

Like I said that wasn't my main point but 2 of you have decided to take that and run with it. Which is either you ignoring what I am getting at regarding customer service or you just don't give a f***

Could'nae care less, I don't smoke. I do have bills to pay though.

Don't see a problem with abiding by the rules.

Everyone has bills to pay, Dundee especially! And after 20 years of handing over my money to them I am getting rightfully p*ssed off at the standard of product on the park, in the pie stall, in the toilets and the way we are treated! I doubt I am the only Dee feeling this way so If I don't just stand by and abide by the rules then you will understand why! Nobody ever changed anything by just "abiding"......well maybe The Dude did but that is another story!

Its ironic that this thread is next to the "missing fans" one.

Connection?

Quite possibly.

Being realistic what do you hope to achieve?. Not aiming this at you in particular but why cant some fans go to the futba withoot picking holes in absolutely everything?. Strikes me that the problems are more than likely outwith the clubs control. Some individuals are never gonna be happy.
