Does anyone else ever feel, FPS's interest in DFC was a means to an end?
I don't think, their initial idea was, let's buy a Scottish Club & use this procurement, as a real means to extend & develop our international business interests?
(I'm finding this difficult to put into the right words here) There was a real buzz & excitement from the early beginnings ... For them & for DFC fans/supporters.
From the outset and even up to the present day, they have continued to give DFC financial backing. They have been prudent & business-like in their approach.
They've shown their professionalism by NOT throwing "tons of money" at DFC ,in an ill-thought effort to buy success for DFC. They've been sensibly cautious.
I don't think we can ever question their interest & enthusiasm for their adopted Club. But I now have this "gut feeling" there has been too much shift of interest.
Maybe understandably the Campie Project (& all this may offer in financial returns to them) has meant DFC has worryingly moved away down the Totem Pole.
I'm still feeling pretty far down, by the way Ayr did a demolition job on DFC (This might be affecting my judgement) But it still haunts me, the way John Nelms,
appeared to casually dismiss DFC in the context of the New Campie Development. Not long after it was announced, in answer to a question on TV, about how
DFC's position would affect the plans, he responded (not in these exact words) The Campie Project would go ahead, " irregardles what position/division DFC
were in at the time" At the time, I found that comment hard to swallow. As I was convinced the Americans main priority & focus, was on developing their very
ambitious plans for Dundee FC. As already emphasised earlier in the post, I do believe they have done us well since their arrival ... But I hope their eyes are not
being diverted, by the magnanimity of this ... In terms of, time, work, & the huge investment, that will be required. I am sure most fans now, will be delighted to
see Dundee FC housed in their, Brand New Stadium. But at this time, Total Focus, on Building A Succesful Premiership DFC Team would be my N01 Priority.
