A copy of socks post on.net and he comes over as a good one on there tbh.
Bit of a shock to read, this, and for the time being and until there's a bit more information, I'll treat it with a good dose of scepticism. I don't doubt that those running the club in recent times genuinely care, but at one time Gavin Masterton was also a big Dunfermline fan and we all know how that played out, so I don't think anyone's actions in such a major issue should automatically jst be accepted. Too may people showed that acceptance and deferential attitude back in 2012/13, and ultimately it was not helpful.I've read everything with an open mind, but I do feel uncomfortable about it. The key to it is knowing what their motivation is - at the moment that isn't clear. Given that they have no real care about DAFC as the current board and we as fans do, you'd have to expect that they intend to profit financially somewhere along the line. If they didn't it just wouldn't make any sense at all.So, how do they propose to do this? Scottish football is hardly known as a vehicle for making money so I'm a bit perplexed by it. If someone can improve things for DAFC and make money for themselves in teh process I don't have any great philisophical objection to that, but how can that be done?Can anyone think of any past examples where similar arrangements ahve been successful? Fergus McCann at Celtic is the obvious one, but beyond that I'm really struggling. What's the worst case - something like Anelka at the Rovers?When the club made it out of 2012/13 alive, I was impressed that provision was put in place to prevent any one shareholder having overall control. In the various statements today it's stated that the plan is for this group to own >75% in time, which means they would have complete control. Such a shareholding will allow them to pass any special resolution and nobody can do anything about it. That provision was put in back in 2013 to prevent a Masterton-type situation arising again and so in my view it's regrettable that such a safeguard is about to be destroyed.
