To be fair he has a point. We are too loyal as a support and people would pay whatever to watch us play.
This, in spades.

A cap would be incredibly beneficial for the Rangers support, whose own loyalty is a double edged sword that routinely allows us to be ripped off by clubs who operate safe in the knowledge that high ticketing prices are no barrier to our fans in buying tickets.

Their bullet point boxes

Ours is dearest, I assume the Bar72 ones which cannot compare to standard season tickets

Doesn't highlight that our cheapest is is less than Yahoos one

Laughable at best

I went to the France v Andorra match at stade de France.

Decent tickets, main stand half way up in line with an 18 yard box.

€25. I thought that was decent value to see the world champions in a competitive match, albeit against weak opposition
Goat to be a good deal that.

Played golf with a guy today who is off to Old Trafford on Saturday his ticket is costing £95. There is no way a working man would be able to pay that sort of money out regularly so KB is correct it’s become a middle class sport.
Mad Keane was before his time with the Prawn Sandwich patter.

Boyd wasn’t meaning that was a middle class sport in terms of the fans. He meant more in terms of the people that are now able to afford to play it, attend academies and buy boots and kit regularly. Les and less working class people are breaking through and becoming pro as they are being priced out of playing and are just moving into regular day to day jobs.
That's a bigger problem than football though.

In this country wages have not really improved since 2008 for most whereas the cost of living has sky rocketed.

The more middle class sports in Scotland and the UK actually do well so maybe it wouldn't be a bad thing if Stewart Melville, George Watsons, George Heriot's etc started producing the football team the same level of athletes they do for rugby!

For everyone complaining about ticket prices, how many have been to a concert recently and how much did you pay, £75 to £150 in most cases

"except Rangers"

two words that show you what a complete joke BBC Scotland are as an organisation
Sadly that was my biggest takeout too. Such is their pettiness and bias against Rangers, they couldn’t even bring themselves to treat us equally in a survey. Think about that for one moment, so it is now officially more than boycotting matches at Ibrox. Funnily enough when there is a bad Rangers story, their writers still manage to cover that. Truly bizarre behavior..

Haha it's really not.

Go to a Scotland rugby international at Murrayfield and then you will see what a middle class sport and support is.

thats a fair point rob but concerts are a once a year or two thing. not every week. and a concert is normally a good length of time. its an evening out as such. you will do the £100 odd concert fee on a night out in a pub. a football match is 90 minutes. or 109 minutes if they are losing.

You don't go to concerts every week though do you? At that price, you're talking a major event at The Hydro. So a couple of times a year at most.

It's an absurd comparison.

I'm sure the average wage in Scotland is around 23k per year. Circa 300 quid ish after tax per week, if a father want's to go to the football with his two sons every week it's costing him a minimum 100 quid when you take into account ticket prices, travel, spending money on the day for the kids on food/drinks/merchandise etc. 1/3 of his take home pay, before he's even paid a dime towards his rent/mortgage, food, car, any other expenses. What about if his two sons are football fanatics as well and attend academies through the week?

The pricing is an absolute disgrace in this country for the product we get. Boyd is spot on about it becoming a middle class sport.

It's your choice what you do with your money, I personally have never grudged the price of my SB/ST. it's value for money in my opinion
People saying things like 'if I take a couple of Kids' 'By the time I buy. Fags, Pint, hot dog etc etc
It's not football's job to reduce prices so you can do other things.
As I said, your money, your choice. Ask KB why coaching kids is so expensive

Exactly. It is my choice what I do with my money, which is exactly my point! As time goes on, working class people will decide that their money could be far better spent on other things rather than spending a huge percentage of their take home pay on going to the football every week. Middle class people have more money, so they can absorb the cost more without it affecting their day to day lives as much as your average punter on the street.

The less working class people going to the games, the less bodies you'll have in your pub as well which hits you in the pocket but you're too blind to see that.

You'll never say anything against the club. You're a puppet.

Obviously you know more about the Pub game than me so I would need to bow to your superior knowledge.
Going to the football has always taken up a decent size of most peoples budget, unless of course, you have, unlike myself and others, not always had a decent amount of disposable income.
As for saying anything against Rangers on a Public Forum, you are 100% correct, I'll take that as a compliment. As I have said, your money, your choice.
Maybe if you only went to home games, you could save a lot of money

Been a long timing coming someone pointing this out.

The club could charge 100 quid a ticket and he’d say it’s correct

so if you say something against the club you aren’t a Rangers fan.

Away gaes peace you’re the same on every thread argumentative, the pricing for games against Livi etc are shocking for the standard. It’ll be the usual reply if concerts etc you are allowed to say the pricing for games is excessive for the level of football we see.

Easy to sit and basically say %^*& working class supporters and fans when they’re paying for your season ticket through purchases in your pub right outside the stadium

Football prices are unacceptable in Scotland but manageable, any raises will start to push it over the limit of what most can realistically afford

Gig comparison is nonsense as football is every week or second week depending on if you’re just on about home games or not

And if you back the Club you are a Puppet? how does that work?
I pay to watch The Rangers, do you think the players get fewer wages when we are playing Livingston?
If I think anything is too expensive, I don't pay it.
Really Simple
How many complaining about ticket prices will be willing to give Celtic the money ( £52? ) for Parkhead.

I have had a SB/ ST since I was a first-year apprentice earning £6.36 a week so your point is invalid. I see a couple of people having a go at me because I had the balls to take on a failing pub and invest heavily into it and make it (not in a shy way) a memorable part of our matchday experience for a lot of our support.
Anyone could have had a go at it, We did

Miss your couple of concerts, a year and that will pay half your ST
