First things first. I don't sit downstairs, never have done. Always been upper (so to speak). Lots of mates who do sit in block E though and have been there since the start, madly loyal, go to lots of away games, have been know to join the Sing-a-Long with HF now and again.

So now we have a bunch of hoodie youths who have thrown their toys out of their prams and a wobbly along with it. So Parish gives in for the sake of few hundred (if that) choir boys and girls. If they really supported the club as me and my mates do then they would turn up anyway.

Parish is saying B*ll*cks to those who have spent a lifetime and a fortune supporting the club. If it were any other "business" they would up sticks and take their money elsewhere.

I think the time has come for post match protests.

If a few hundred can persuade Parish one way then surely a few thousand can make him change his mind

Perhaps a crowd vote just before kickoff would change Steve Parish's mind. Everybody against it stand up, everybody for it sit down. At least it would be good to see the HC (Holmesdale Choirboys)obeying stadium rules and sitting down for once.

I actually donít remember the detail. Looking back I think I bought a ticket for maybe 10 years and then topped it up. A bloke on the BBS seemed to know. All I know is I have had the same seat since they built the Holmesdale, havenít paid for many many years and have two more to go. I am told it was a Simon Jordan initiative when he was borassic.

But you said 1995? SJ didn't come in until 1999 when Goldberg left.

They have essentially been told they are second class because of pressure from a particular set of fans.

This is what I have been saying all along. Disgraceful.
There are so many on here that shrug and say 'but we love the HF'. Any one of us would feel differently if it were us being treated this way. We should look out for each other. We are ALL Palace fans after all.

It seems I'm going against the grain here but to be honest I couldn't care less if people have to move seats, I just want our kick ass atmosphere back.

Nobody owns the seats they sit in and if you are a real fan you won't care where you sit.

Unless youíre the HF of course. Then you literally stop supporting and divide an entire fan base on the basis of where you sit.

Iím glad youíre only concerned about the ďkick ass atmosphereĒ at the expense of other fans wishes. But just argue that and own it. Stop using the ďnobody owns the seatĒ nonsense, itís desperate. There is technicality & then there is decency, they are 2 completely different things. The HF own an equal amount of sweet f*** all as anyone else does.

The difference between the 2 parties concerned is that, Block E donít attempt to claim superiority over any other Palace fans. The HF and itís fan boys can pretend this isnít what theyíre doing all they want, but itís precisely what they have done and will continue to do as this saga continues.

I got a brilliant view 29 rows behind the penalty spot and will definitely natter where my next seat will be next season. I been offered 50% off my season ticket anywhere in the ground subject to availability and Gold membership. HF will get first choice of seats what's left we get.

Yup, in another post I believe I said that probably I bought the longer term ticket a bit after I first moved to the seat. What's it to you?

Yep....Parish gave in.....As usual, the activists who shout the loudest...the ones who sulk and refuse to sing....well they end up getting their way.

And the ones who don't kick up such a fuss just get shafted.

As I say, I couldn't care less about your seating arrangements fella.

The HF were the only ones in the stand to make any noise anyway.

Try sitting somewhere else and stop bithching like a girl,you might just enjoy it.

What gets me fella is why the thousands of fans who miss the atmosphere so much, don't stop bitching and create their own atmosphere. why do you need a hundred hoodies to help. You might just enjoy it.
