An alternative was of looking at things... Some of you are gonna hate this...
Here goes anyway.
FPS owe us very little. Maybe some effort on their part to take the club forwards. An effort to make the stadium experience tolerable, and an attempt to maintain the standing and traditions of the club in the wider Scottish football scene. All of those could be classified as giving us something to want to pay money to support on match days, so really, it is less about a debt they owe to us and more of plain old common business sense.
They don't owe us explanations of their business decisions, they don't have to take heed of our feelings on signings and managers and they certainly don't have to answer questions from entitled blowhards who feel hard done by.
That said, one of the features of really well run clubs is that the executives tend to be more open with supporters and, more importantly, supporters feel that they are a part of things, even if some still feel they should be consulted for every decision.
I think the Supporters Society (and many posters on here) is barking up the wrong tree. It shouldn't pick a fight with the club or FPS. It should turn its attention to fans and try to establish a reasonable basis for their engagement and what would be a reasonable level of influence they could expect to wield.
If supporters want a strong say, then buy shares and put up the cash.
The cash paid out by fans after previous administrations was, in effect, forgiveness money, paid out to those who had suffered financially and as a contribution towards keeping the club afloat during the difficult months. It was not an investment in the future of the club. It did purchase legally defined rights. And it was not, for the most part, conditional on any future level of control. If we wanted any of those things, the money would have had to have been paid over before administration and should have been enough to ensure administration never happened.
So my point is, lets stop moaning about things we have no right to influence, and lets start thinking about the next opportunity to be real players in the running of the club. With relegation probably on the way, Scottish football showing no sign that it gives a flying sh*t about anything other than Celtic getting into the Champions league, FPS giving the dreaded full confidence spiel, and even Jim Spence questioning the new stadium idea, we could be facing another administration level event in the next couple of years.
That means now is the time to mobilise and think about how we can take greater control of the club and, hopefully, stop it entering into another administration from which it would surely never recover.
