Why can’t we boycott away games?

I don’t see why this can’t be done. Even the threat of it should be made public to them before they vote. We need to start standing up for ourselves, because no one else is.

Vote to stop us having the chance of winning a title, you will not get a single blue penny when you need it most. Simple as that.
Same reason we cannot,as a society obey the lockdown instructions.
Some people simply will not accept a boycott.

The only way to get anything changed in this backwards shite hole is unfortunately to get other clubs on our side, no matter how unpalatable that is, boycotting these clubs wont help us
The players also need us to be there, i have never thought of going to away games as giving other teams money only to support Rangers

I’d rather go support the starting 11.
didn't take long first reply says it all :( and i'd question if, by giving your hard earned to our many enemies you are actually supporting the starting 11 and our club as a whole in the long term .
i'm sure you, like many others have a logical reason planted in your head somewhere like a weekend booze session with the mates or the fact that you've never missed any game in how many years or you simply don't care that our club and support are continually wronged and taken advantage off .
bottom line is you do it for you and certainly not the good of Rangers fc

Well said by you. Giving out verbal to fellow Rangers fans.

Tell you what, if on here's a reflection of our support, somethings went badly wrong. I dont think it is though, because I dont know anybody who gives out verbal to our fans like on here

You and those who have same attitude,are the reason we will always be sh@t on from a great height.
We should have been boycotting away games since our return to the premier league.If we had been I’m in no doubt we wouldn’t be as week as we are now.
Anyway never mind,you keep enjoying your day on the piss and lining the pockets of those who tried to kill us.
The whole of Scottish football hate us and,if it means handing the mhanky mob a free title they are happy to go along with it,as long as it shafts us.
Its time the fans reps asked the season ticket holders opinion on this,more than ever we need to take some form of action or the games a bogey for us ever winning anything again.We have the most loyal support in the country,it’s time to start looking after ourselves and starve the haters of the blue pound.

The club needs to lead the boycott . Saying from next year we won’t accept away tickets.
This is the only way to hurt these teams, would be a massive statement.

Get Rangers TV beaming back to Ibrox for away games.

Another one handing out the insults to fellow fans. Now even blaming them for the state we're in. Couldn't make it up. The days of Rangers taking 10 to 15,000 away fans are long gone. They get their money elsewhere these days, so if your answer for all this is blaming our fans, then I'm afraid we're finished.

Sad state of affairs indeed.

I’d rather us target a specific club or clubs every season and boycott both away fixtures against them. Hibs would be a good starting point given their sh*te in recent years and today’s vote.

A full boycott wouldn’t work unless led by the club.

Seriously. Aye it’s all for the booze because we couldn’t do that in our local and watch the game. Without our ticket and bus fares give me peace.

I would start with Livingston.

You're the one who sounds like a bam here, I would wager you attend away games by sitting on the match thread
Yes I do. And that's because the two away games I went to, I felt I was surrounded by bams.

Why do you think it's our away fans that are singing sectarian songs, throwing stuff and whatever that thing was with the Kilmarnock roof? Because they're just unfortunately picked on?

Aye the home support don’t sing those songs. The Billy boys was ringing round at both Celtic wins

I'm fairly certain that's the exact same point. A lot of people using it as an excuse to drink pre-match and all day on a Sunday. It's not the same as a 3pm kick off vs Dundee is it?

Aye we use it as an excuse taking days off work to travel to Aberdeen, Dingwall etc on Wednesday nights. Keep talking pish

It would need to be all for 1 and 1 for all, otherwise it would be a pointless exercise.Ive no doubt something has to be done now.
As our club dosen't seem to have an opinion in Scottish football anymore, it's now time for some sort of action, as next season will be run by the soapdodgers once again.
Our club and fans will need to fight for what we think is rightfullly within the rules, next season.or there would be no reason to compete against a corupt system within the Scottish game.

If you want to boycott away games and not give other SPFL clubs your money, do it, it's your call and doesn't warrant criticism.

They survived it before, so what's the point. It's what a lot of these fans spend a lot of their money on and if they want to follow the team that should be their decision.
Didn't say fans shouldn't support the team if they wanted too.
If the club dont take the tickets then responsibility of safety and behaviour of fans is not of Rangers FC's concern or responsibility.
ps the clubs only survive because fans bought the tickets, a total ban for a period of time has never been attempted, also if fans continue to do nothing to punish clubs and league associations (not necessarilynot attendinggames), then they should stop whingeing about how the associations screw us and just accept that they are partly to blame.

I agree with this. No one is going to win the argument trading insults. There are guys who follow us everywhere and it's to be admired. I personally don't think funding these clubs helps our cause, but they have a different opinion. We all want what's best for the club. I think it'd be interesting to see what would happen if we picked one or two clubs and refused to take tickets from them

This HAS to happen, Rangers themselves should officially state they won't be taking up any away allocation then similar to the merchandise stuff that they don't recommend fans do this any longer.

A few isolated incidents you will always get in crowds that number thousands. I am lucky to be able to follow away and our fans are second to none in the level of support they give to the Team. Midweek games like Aberdeen/Ross County folk like yourself would be found out within minutes you sound like a complete wet blanket.

The problem is the home team would need to give approval for a beam back and probably charge us a fortune.

A boycott is literally all we have as a unified power as a support. It is in the best interest of our club long term. Why would any Rangers fan not want that?

Ah, the weekly slagging of the away support. Some things in life are constant. If this site was an honest representation of the whole support it truly shows how far the support has fallen. What happened to “No one likes us, we don’t care.” Far too many people on here seem to hate everyone else more than they love Rangers, that’s not the way it should be.

No one is slagging the away support. People are being questioned as to why they’d choose a day out 19 times a year over the long term betterment of the club. It’s unfathomable that Rangers supporters don’t want to do what’s ultimately best for the club.

Financing our enemies in the short term, is not what’s best for us. They know they can treat us like shit and it won’t make a difference to their bottom line. That’s astonishing.

These clubs arent depending on 1 or 2 games against Rangers to keep them running. The days of us taking over 10,000 to away games are long gone.

They've got the sky money coming in, that I would suggest is where the real arm twisting has came from. Interesting to read that sky expect the new season off and running with the new contract. I think the the spfl, sorry Celtic have warned them that the tv money could be in doubt.

Take st Mirren for instance, they will depend on tv money more than a couple of thousand Rangers fans or whatever that end holds. If they were to vote against it, they would be insane. The ultimate Turkey voting for xmas.

Sporting integrity died many years ago when tv money took over the game at every level. That's where we are now and it's sad to say the least. The fact we're actually having a row about this whilst people are dying says everything about where the great game has ended up.

Clubs treat us with utter contempt and will continue to do so unless we hit them in the pocket. For some, their RSC and the day out is more important than anything. No matter what these clubs do to us they know we will still go back for more.

Remember, there some on here who would take Rangers fans tickets and give them to Celtic fans just so they can get a ticket for the piggery.

Always remember, you don't get what you deserve in this world you get what you tolerate.
